Wielder of pens and brushes.
I just got into watercolour recently. I normally paint with acrylics. I am enjoying the way watercolours flow and blend and appreciating the looseness and expressiveness of this new medium. I paint big with acrylic and small with watercolour. My little palette and postcard sized papers mean I can sit on my couch and paint 🎨 in the evening.
Fountain pen 🖋 enthusiast.
My Moonman S5 arrived today (April 2021). I got into fountain pens because I was tired of throwing out spent fine line markers. I am in love with all the lovely fountain pen inks and am addicted to watching ink review videos. I am now on the hunt for fountain pen friendly paper. I’ve picked up a whole new vocabulary: feathering, bleed through, shading.
My current favourite inks
Pilot Iroshzuku Tsutsuji A bright, fresh pink!
Sailor Manyo Ukikusa A gorgeous warm green.
Diamine Blue Velvet The name says it all.
I live on Canada’s beautiful west coast on Vancouver Island, in a rainforest, in the mountains, near the sea. My husband and I, and a little cat that we found sleeping in our patio 3 months ago, enjoy a quiet life. I spend my time gardening, book binding, painting and writing.
I don’t watch TV but I do love watching creators on YouTube.
Learned a lot about bookbinding and became addicted to fountain pens and ink.
According to the Myers Briggs personality test I am an INTJ (Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking, Judging).
This Swap meet seems like a great way to make some connections and have a little fun. It’s a nice way to get social in this socially distant world we have been navigating.
I’ve been having fun making ATCs.

NOTE Swap status is for me to stay organized, not to pressure swappers. I will be moving entries to an offline spreadsheet.
