One of the things I like to do on New Year’s Day is finish a quilt, craft or fabric project so that it sets the tone for the year. I should add”write thank you notes” to that list! I received so many lovely gifts this year, including a wonderful set of Staedler markers, and I still have “write thank you notes” on my to-do list.
I bring this up because, although I have tried the pens, earlier this week was the first time I had the opportunity to sit down and use them for project.
I love them. You, who got them for me, you know who you are: I love them.
Getting a new set of markers is fabulous. It brings back all sorts of wonderful memories of being a kid. As a 10 or 11 year old, I saved up $10.00 whole dollars to buy a set of 24 Pentel medium tip markers. I remember standing in stunned silence staring at the clerk in the Art Department at May Co when she asked for $11 something because of tax. At 40 cents a week allowance, it took me a few more weeks to save up for the tax. Boy! Did I take good care of those pens!
These new Staedler pens are really great markers.
Even though they are fine point I had no trouble coloring in sections of this response. Tools are important. They have made me excited about creating responses again.
