one pen, ink, drawing and maybe a lipstick at a time


Welcome!  A little about me and this blog…

I’m born and raised in Seattle where the locals don’t use umbrellas.  I’ve loved stationery supplies, watches and makeup since I can remember and I have an opportunity to finally put some personal thoughts down about these fun things here on this website.

My father used a Parker 75 which I still have in my collection today.  It sometimes seems like yesterday that I was inking it up with him with his go-to Sheaffer Skrip Peacock Blue.  I was hooked.  Due to some very generous friends, I now have this ink in my stash.

I’ve enjoyed drawing since I was little, but don’t do enough of it today–that’s about to change.
