It might not look like much but I've done more than shift boxes around in my studio, but I have. I've cleared that top drawer, cleared, rearranged the two shelves on the left, and stacked more archived mail forward the ceiling. Never mind the stuff on the floor.
Um. I've returned some books to shelves, disturbed some of my special Nat' Geos. And never mind the stuff on the floor and in-between spaces.
Hello! There's my easel! A scanner that still works. And three drawers of 12 x 12 paper I have yet to use. Oh. And some other stuff. Never mind the bike teetering on top.
This really is the top of my drawing table. I pulled out paper, books, stuff, things, and mystery objects. I always make a mess trying to clean up a mess. But, come trash day tomorrow, there will be bags of landfill fodder. Paper is good for garbage! It's better than plastics. So . . . I wrote two letters last night. Okay, maybe not two letters but I filled both sides of a get-well card and sent a little tease to someone else. If postage is required, and if I say a whole lot, it should count as a letter. In my mind anyway.
A cantaloupe stamp, forget-me-nots, and an L writ with a new nib!
Am not a fan of Leonardt & Co., yet I continue to buy their product. All the scritching/scratching their nibs make makes me feel like I'm being abusive. The quality is so iffy it's not funny, but then a nib surprises me. I like the one that has the spring action going on. I used it a lot last night. The company has an impressive history though, and for far too long, theirs was the only other dip pens available to the likes of me. Now the materials look and feel too-cheap-to-bother, but their tins are cool.
I acquired this duo yesterday out of curiosity, simply because I'd had no experience with a shadow nib before. It came with The Copperplate & Shadow Dip Pen & Nib Set. A twenty-five percent discount sweetened the deal, so I brought it home. Cool shadows, yes? There should be a way to use different colored inks for a really cool effect.
Hope you're keeping cool and writing more letters than the law allows!
Write makes might!
