Week 1 Highlights

This is always my favorite time of year because I get to pull out and get creative with all the fountain pens and inks from my collection. Part of the fascination with beautifully crafted fountain pens is the vast array of inks available for them—colorful inks, shimmering inks, shading inks, archival inks—the list goes on and on. That was the inspiration for my yearly #30daysofinks Instagram Challenge: to explore and create a social media library for fountain pen geeks to see all the wonderful inks available in candid, real life situations. Below are some pictures shared on Instagram this week by fellow fountain pen geeks and myself—enjoy! 🙂

The #30daysofinks Instagram Challenge will continue throughout the month of April and Week 2 is already underway so feel free to join in on the fun! It doesn’t matter if you only have one ink bottle/cartridge or if—like me—you’re looking for an excuse to try out all those glorious ink samples you’ve accumulated over time. To get started, follow me on Instagram @LilDivette, post what you have using the hashtag #30daysofinks and don’t forget to interact with our wonderful fountain pen community!
