This week I continued Inktober despite traveling on vacation. I did end up using different tools – I took my Ink Joy Gel Pens and my Marvy Le Pens with me. In general I was less happy with this week’s drawings. I’ll share a secret – I usually sketch what I want really lightly in… Continue reading Inktober, Week 3
When I received Mystic Mint from Rishi Tea in one of my Tea Runners boxes, I wasn’t sure whether I would like it or not.

In one of the recent Tea Runners boxes I found a delicious looking tea from the American Tea Room called Organic Bliss. I was actually surprised to see that the American Tea Room has locations in Los Angeles. I will have to try and visit the next time I go! From the website, Organic Bliss… Continue reading Drink Me: American Tea Room, Organic Bliss
Recently I have been getting more into fountain pens and inks. So I was excited to try and participate in this year’s Inktober challenge. Originally I thought I would just practice my penmanship and use a different ink color every day of the month. But then I read the actual initiative and realized I was… Continue reading Inktober.
Welcome to episode 156! This week I have a few FO’s, a new project in progress and lots of upcoming cast-ons to show you.
