Before we wrap up today’s post, do you recall how earlier in the week we were looking at 2018 Letter Writing Goals & Organization? We can add to our master calendar going to a Fountain Pen Show this year – I’m certainly figuring out which one I can attend!

My hope is that this year you may decide to add a fountain pen to your repertoire of letter writing items. If you already have one, perhaps you’ll expand your collection!  This will be fun exploring the many options available in 2018! Join me tomorrow for my Saturday blog post here at AnchoredScraps.
