Yay for another potential hobby to kill time or to make time more productive and useful! I’ve made a huge purchase recently all about pens and stationary stuff solely for the purpose of me trying to “write” more or as I’d like to call it, to “CREATE” more. I, apparently, love the idea of traditional handwriting on paper. Hand-writing is personalized art, especially those written in cursive and graceful ways. As you may or may not know that calligraphy is a thing now! I can go on Instagram and type “calligraphy” on the search bar and be able to find tons of “calligraphy” portfolio or inspirations there.

All pen purchases are from the website Jetpens.com, except the two bottom pictures featuring miscellaneous but good stuff. Have a peak!!!
