  8. My life has been super hectic lately so right now I'm trying to get things organized so I can get back to exploring calligraphy. My three favorite supplies are: my notebook, a basic Schaeffer fountain pen, and an Osmiroid fountain pen my mother used to own that was so perfect it felt like I was writing on silk with velvet ink. I dream of owning one of my own someday. In the meantime, I need to make time to practice, practice, practice.
