Merry Christmas to Me
I am a terrible Christmas shopper. As I peruse websites, catalogs, and shops, far too often I find things that I like. I almost always resist temptation, but while looking at JetPens for a gift certificate for Ryan, I gave in and bought myself a gift.
I've been thinking about a fountain pen for months, and JetPens makes it too easy to choose exactly the type of pen that will fulfill your writing desires. I ended up with a small stainless steel Kaweco pen, an extra fine gold nib and a Leuchtturm notebook. They are perfect, and I was enthralled from the first moment I started writing. I just use these for my to-do lists and daily notes, but the pen and notebook make my lists and thoughts feel more considered and important.
I'm afraid that this may be just the beginning. There is a whole big world of pens, beautiful inks, and notebooks that I've just started to explore. I may be purchasing less yarn in 2017, but possibly more fountain pens and inks!
