Good morning Amber Lea,

I went by the post office on my way to work yesterday afternoon. Your 'Special Inkvitation' goodies had arrived - they and your artwork on the envelope brightened my whole day. I'm looking forward to sitting down and participating in this fun project.

Thank-you

    I sent the card to my 'single dad' brother-in-law.

He hosted a fantastic Canadian Thanksgiving

dinner for the whole family last weekend.

    It was written with a Pilot Metropolitan F nib in

Sailor Sei-Boku nano blue black waterproof ink.

    I really like the dark turquoise color.

Thanks to Okami's amazing gift package, I'm really inspired to try and create some art. I'm not sure how sucsessful I'll be, but practice makes perfect, right? Plus I konw a few folks that desperately need cheering up. If there's still a set left, I would love to be included. 

 

Are you interested in any particular ink samples? I have a few Montblanc limited edition inks and a few inks that aren't too common. Would you prefer samples of that? Or more standard lines? 

 

I'll PM you with my address just in case there's some available. Thanks in advance. I can't wait until I can pay it forward in some way to others. I was having a bad day until Okami's heavy box arrived. I squealed so loudly that I scared my two pups, and my mouth was hanging open for a good 5 minutes because I couldn't believe everything that was included. Now I want to use them not only to see if I'm actually creative or not, but more importantly to reach out to some friends that are having a rough go of things.

The content of my letter is rather personal so I'm not uploading a photo of that, but I did want to share the amount of effort I put into making the envelope stay closed!  :D https://www.dropbox.....42 PM.png?dl=0
