A Small Obsession . . .


I have this cousin. I think she might be kind of famous. She is crazy talented. She blows my mind regularly, like here, here and here.

Way back in the late Spring (remember it – it seems like yesterday?) she reviewed her favorite pens. Does that sound weird to you? Not to me. I have have been a lover of fine writing instruments since my college days. I used to reserve a small portion of my budget to buy nice pens. Dorky, I know, but a little corner of heaven for me.

Back to her review of pens. She settled on her favorites and I jokingly commented that she should send all of her reject pens to me.A week later I had a giant package of reject pens in my hands. Dang, I hate it when that happens. Not.

Thanks to Allison, I have now pentyped myself as a Pilot Precise V5 Extra Fine Black girl. If I have to, though, I’ll settle for a Sakura Pigma Micron 05 .45mm pen.

Sometimes I’m in the mood for ball point. I prefer the Pentel RSVP Fine Point in black or blue.

Are you a pen nerd like me? Please say yes. Tell my your pentype. And then let’s be friends forever.

A fine sharpie or a fountain pen.

and yes….

Allison is extremely talented and amazing, aren't we lucky/blessed to be related to her?

You forgot to mention that she is the mother of/to 9 children.

I love my uni-ball Signo Micro 207 in black please. It is smooth and precise to write with and doesn't smear, I'm left handed and smearing ink can be a problem for lefties! I cringe if I have to use a medium Bic in blue!

You have beautiful handwriting. You are so darling to post this. I got a wonderful card from your mom testing as well. Made me smile to know I'm not the only pen obsession. love you!

If I had your or Allison's drawing and penmanship abilities, I would absolutely be obsessed with pens.
Remember the dresses you drew for the girls, Dragonfly? Talent deserves special pens.
