Generous Gift from Speck!

Speck, one of my crazy fountain pen friends, just sent me an incredible box of goodies. I feel bad for the poor postal carrier, this little box was just slam packed full of cool stuff!
I couldn't believe how much stuff she fit in there, so let me just post a few pictures so you get the idea.
first was a short letter in a handmade envelope!
Next was a handmade notebook and some sparkly frog stickers. Carla took one look at the notebook and said, "Give me that! I could alter the hell out it! How did Speck make it so perfectly?!"

Next I dug deeper in the box to find all sorts of little ink samples.
The I ran to my writing area and grabbed the previous ink samples that Speck had sent and I lined them all up.

See, Speck is crazily generous! But wait, there's more. Not only did she send me all of those great ink samples in the cool little vials, she also...wait for it...sent along a fountain pen!


And she included some paper to practice writing on! (I didn't take a picture of the paper, well, because that would just be overkill) Thank you Speck, you are a gem!
