Goulet Pens Blog: Noodler's Flex Pen Cleaning and Disassembly

Wednesday, June 8, 2016

I bought a Noodler's flex pen last year from The Craft Central and was disappointed because the ink was dripping when I pressed hard on the paper. So when I finished the ink, I cleaned it and just kept it. A few days ago, I decided to ink it up again and use it with my journal. I was browsing thru the net looking for great flex pens and to understand more about fountain pens (since I love "hoarding" them) and stumbled upon this video. It's a wake up call, making me love my Noodler's Flex Pen.

Goulet Pens Blog: Noodler's Flex Pen Cleaning and Disassembly:

I was able to adjust the nib, the ink flow and started to doodle with it.

The paper is not fountain pen friendly but notice the thickness of the lines? Meaning I was able to press hard on the paper without the ink dripping from the pen. I browse thru The Craft Central last night and they don't sell fountain pens as of the moment. But I'm happy I got to work with my Noodler's. If you need some tips and tricks, there are a lot of blogs that teaches you so. There's the Pinoy Penman, Goulet Pen, Leigh Reyes' Blog is also a good resource for your questions.

There are infinite possibilities on the net. Go....

5 Reasons Why You Should Start Using Fountain Pens

Saturday, June 4, 2016

I've been cranky since I got back and I've been blaming it on jetlag. Haven't slept well too. I envy dear husband because he sleeps so peacefully at night. I find myself awake at 1am or 3am or 4am and couldn't go back to sleep. Then I remembed a video shared to me by a dear cousin-in-law Katrina Kheiy of m.calligraphy. He wrote a word using Waterman fountain pen but with a diffent nib. And I remembered a local calligraphy artist using Jinhaox450 but with a different nib. And I remembered a certain website selling my dream ink the Diamine Shimmering Inks (ang haba lang naman ng connection diba?) He directed customers to an article written at "When in Manila" website so I thought I might share it with you.

Maybe this is what I need, to slow down a bit...

My Very Own Turtle

Friday, May 27, 2016

It started out with just picking for a pearl and ended up with the most gorgeous gift from dear hubby.

This is what's included in the package. As an added bonus, they let us pick another pearl. Still thinking of what to set it with. You can never go wrong with pearls.

My very own turtle with a pink pearl...

Thank you so much pi.

From the moment I started reading the book, I couldn't put it down. It is a book about life and motivating others. It is about the choices we make in life and how everyone else's lives are affected by it.

Yes they made it a movie, but I haven't seen it. I would love to see it though. 

Again I don't wanna be a spoiler. You go grab a copy of the book and enjoy!
