Gifts we loved



Thanks to some advice from the fine folks at Wonder Fair, Bob picked up a few lovely stationery items for me. The staff advised him, “I don’t think she has this..”, “I have never seen a review for this ink…” and so forth. I was as tickled by the watchful eye of the Wonder Fair staff as I was by the actual gifts. I got two small notebooks/sketchbooks (both Clairefontaine paper, reviews soon) and a packet of Kaweco highlighter ink. I also got my very own Gelli Plate and Soft Rubber Brayer and I’m looking forward to making lots of textural papers for collage (one of my goals for 2019).

I cannot contain my holiday enthusiasm to just stationery. This year, my darling husband got me a Sphero BB-8 to keep my R2 company. I love getting a toy for the holidays, it makes me feel like a kid again. I spent hours on the floor racing them both around and entertaining (?)  my cats.


We actually didn’t do much in the way of Christmas gifts this year since we’re saving our pennies to travel in 2019. I did make one splurge on myself, a Fringe Supply special edition Field Bag. I mentioned before I was lusting for one in a different colorway and I couldn’t help myself. It’s already got a knitting project in it!

Not a gift, but I spent the holidays playing with a Karas Kustoms Starliner (review forthcoming). So that’s what’s up in inky news!
