The swab of Stipula Sapphron is so pretty. So freakin’ pretty. But my review of it is so harsh.
Makes me want to try it again.

Compared with other black inks, this one is looks darker and more glossy than others.
Did you see this article in the NY Times about micro-apartments? For as long as I can remember, I’ve had huge romantic yearnings for living in a tiny place. I think Mary Tyler Moore started it all for me. Could you do it? I’m thinking 600 square feet, though, definitely not under 400.

I’m seeing a definite trend. Ink reviews on the blog. Pen porn over on Instagram. It wasn’t even on purpose – it’s just so easy. And it doesn’t feel like it has to be perfect.

INK REVIEW: Stipula Sapphron
It shades like a son-of-a-gun. Sounds like I should love it, right? Or at least like it. But no, I hate it.
Hard to believe I’m going pass by shading like this. But I am.
In fact, I wanted this to work badly enough that I tried it again another day. With another kind of paper.
