It's my birthday and although I am dismayed by the passing of another year (how have I got to this age?? When did that happen???) I am having a delightful afternoon with a pot of tea and a heap of new stationery to play with! I have some new pens, ink and paper to play with! How well people know me!
Here's some of the haul:
a Conklin stub nib pen
a selection of Iroshizuku inks
a little leather-bound notebook with Tomoe River paper
a writing set made from recycled elephant dung and recycled paper (no, it doesn't smell!)
