Cast a spell on your handwriting with a simple trick I use when I'm unable to use my calligraphy pen. All you need is a marker of your choice. I like to use a fine black Micron pen. It works great on things like kraft paper bags and coffee stained papers.
For Halloween, I'm using this trick to decorate simple kraft treat bags. The process is simple. In addition to a marker, you will need a pencil, a ruler, and a regular mouth jar lid. Step by step instructions are provided in the following video.
There are few things in life I hoard. I prefer minimal and organized living spaces. But, when it comes to books and stationery, I admit I am weak.
I do try to limit these items and keep them confined to my library and office. If they start to spill over into the rest of the house (nightstands, dining tables, living room), I take it as a sign to purge. But, so far, I have remained fairly disciplined.
This summer I stocked up on some of my favorite stationery supplies. I allowed myself to fill a small box kept in my office. Once it was filled, I put a halt on purchases (at least until Fall). Here's a look at the items I picked up this summer. Links for all items listed below.
