   FlatCityGirl  I'm someone who does not have an ounce of artistic talent and that's why I'm so blown away by people who do. Pumpkin carving is one of those arts that just stuns me.

   Balogreene  Is this crafting? I have taken up Fountain Pens again. I use the site Gouletpens.com to order pens, ink, and some paper (journals, date books, etc. ) Brian and Rachel are a young Christian couple who started this business about 5 years ago. I got a pen, and within a couple months it broke. I wrote the company (here in Ashland VA ), and told them, if it's my fault I'll buy a new one, if it is not, can you fix it? They sent me a new pen, and two samples of inks.

I don't draw (yet, I'm going to try to learn ). But, I have started writing (by hand ) notes to family. It is a creative joy.

   MeiDei  Good for you. I wrote a thank you note & letter to one of my nieces and she was thrilled - every body she knows sends text messages only. I think letter writing is a lost art, even addressing envelopes has given way to printed labels, tho' frankly I could use them at Christmas time. If you have a broad nib you can imitate calligraphy by holding the pen slightly askew and get thin and broad strokes as you write. Let us know how you do.

   FlatCityGirl  With Father's Day coming up here's an idea for a gift for Dad that I did with with my grandsons years ago. I saw it somewhere, a magazine or on display at Hobby Lobby and thought it was really cute.

I used a good quality white T-shirt that fit my son, and painted the boy's hands with bright primary colors using craft paint, and put the hand prints all over the shirt, then used a magic marker --permanent ink, and wrote "Hands Down, Worlds Best Dad." Iron the shirt after the paint drys to set the paint.

To this day, my son says it's one of the best Father's Day gifts he ever received.

Use old rags to test the paint on the hands to see how much is going to make the best hand print; too much paint makes a blob, and not enough doesn't make a good print.
