At the beginning of the pandemic, I was doing pretty well keeping things under control. I was mostly using the tester pens from the shop, which was fun, although challenging since no one knew what ink was in any of the pens (the inks sometimes end up getting mixed up a bit).

Since then, unsurprisingly, things have unraveled a tiny bit. It started with one blog post where I needed to ink up some pens, and then another one. Six pens for a TWSBI post? No problem. A new ink here, a new pen there. I cleaned out a few pens and then another blog post crops up, or a customer asks for a writing sample. I currently have something in the queue with the Sailor Studio inks, and then and then and then.

It’s overwhelming and glorious and overwhelmingly glorious.

I’m keeping my eye out for that Sailor Ink Studio post you mentioned! I’ve purchased 3 from your shop and love each of them. Such amazing colours!
