I loves me a good fountain pen! I never truly appreciated the difference in fountain pens until I splurged at Christmas and bought a ¬£40 Cross pen. It has a lovely weight in the hand, a sleek, timeless shape and finish, and is pure bliss to put to paper. I’ve got over the ‘I must only use it for special stuff’ stigma and use it like it wants to be used – for everything! Perhaps the only point in me covering my adoration for this luxury pen is that it is a bolster for ‘you get what you pay for.’ The three pens in the photo are my testament to that adage. My advice it to buy a good pen, not the most expensive, but a mid-range at least, and then beat any person to bits if they steal it. Some fine writing instruments are worth jail time.
I’m in Photoshop blitz-o-rama mode this weekend for a project that came in like a sudden wind. So my weekend is filled with work, but that’s fine with me. There isn’t a day I’m not on one of my computers anyway… Plus, I love a challenge! Yay!
