Fourth of July

I came across this quote from John Adams, and penned it this morning in calligraphy. Perfect for the Fourth of July! I like purchasing packs of colored paper from Michaels, and then use my Nikko G nib and Dr. Martin’s Bleedproof White ink. The ink is rather thick, so simply add about 10 drops of […]

It started with a few simple kits, and then the popular Stampin’Up! parties filled my mother’s drawers with even more fun stamps, chalks, ink pads, embossing powders and glitter… not to mention the decorative scissors. There are so many fun things you can […]
