Packages always brighten up my mailbox and my day, but I received an extra special treat last weekend. Jane Farr is the artist behind A Place to Flourish, an inspiring calligraphy blog that I've followed for over a year. She recently had a giveaway for several sets of Kuretake ZIG markers, and I was one of the lucky winners!
The envelope and card were hand lettered in Jane's beautiful calligraphy, and the package contained four double-ended ZIG markers: a Fine & Chisel, two Scroll & Brush and one Calligraphy pen.
The Pure Pink Calligraphy marker (far left) has a fat chiseled end, fun for large lettering. I decided to send a card to my Aunt Stas, whose maiden name and married name both just so happen to start with "Van". On a side note, I am in love with these sweet cards, inspired by vintage flower seed packets.
I also used the same Pure Pink marker to address a Mother's Day package to my mom. I snapped a quick iPhone picture before dropping it in the mail - and then blocked out the address before posting it here. :)
Thanks again to Jane for the wonderful giveaway! I look forward to many more of your Flourish Fridays!
