drawing and stamping
|cormorant late night sketch, lamy safari|
My lamy safari fountain pen with an "F" nib arrived this week from goulet pens along with several ink samples. The "f" nib writes smoothly and feels like it's gliding on the paper. The ergonomic hold (where my fingers rest) and it's light weight are also great.
Given the reviews, I guessed that the lamy nib would not write as thin a line as my Japanese made "F" nib pens. I'm enjoying the variety that I can get from my preppy, metropolitan and now Lamy pens. With scented inks to boot, I've been drawing a lot more since my fountain pen enthusiasm began!
In addition to drawing, I've been making some diy stationary. Last week, I snagged a box of formal stationery from the second-hand shop for $2.00. The paper is a beautiful cream color with a nice tooth for stamping and fountain pen writing.

The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams. ― Henry David Thoreau
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle,
I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
H. G. Wells
Above are the envelopes I stamped this week. The stationery will have complimentary stamps: the bee will have the honeycomb and the cat will have paw prints.
I am not sure what stamp to make to compliment the bicycle. Any ideas?
wishing everyone a bright weekend!
