Those permanently blue fingers, scratching on paper and time it took to dry! Oh how we hated it, couldn't wait to get to 5th grade to get a ballpoint pen!

However, by some mysterious coincidence, I got to videos about fountain pens and they persuaded me that perhaps it would give a very personal touch to my dream diary that I started recently. I'll also use it for taking notes from books.

So I went to the store today and bought a pen for 25€ which is quite a lot compared to ordinary pens but it's relatively cheap in the world of fountain pens. Plus it can last for decades as it is refillable. And you can use different colours of ink.

And guess what, it is totally fine, no scratching, no blue fingers, it glides smoothly and perhaps my handwriting looks a bit nicer :-)

So in case anyone is looking for an idea on how to make your BoS, journal, diary etc special, I definitely recommend this kind of pen :-)
learning calligraphy is also a good idea

Yes, definitely. I envy those people who can do it. I don't have the patience. Maybe once I will get to it.
Can you do calligraphy, CD?
