nib party


when it comes right down to it,  i guess that calligraphy nib holders
really aren't that exciting..... 







even though they all have a special purpose and claim to fame.





but when you pick and choose and pair them up with your favorite nib, 
the party really gets started.....and i'm talking
a table filled with a wild assortment of belgian chocolates
and big bowls of potato chips kind of party!  :))


{this page was created in my elvie catalog using pitt artist pens, koi watercolor,
derwent watercolor pencils, waterbrush, 4B graphite pencil}
you can read more about the "calligraphy nibs" page here!

It takes me all my time to write/draw with one pen! It must be wonderful to be able to use so many and know the purpose they're made for (((((sigh)))))

After that you deserve to have as much chocolate and chips that you want :o)

So timely for me, and delightful to read as I just started using dip pens more often.

And ntil I saw the holders below, I thought they were uninteresting, too.
