Outgoing InCoWriMo Letters

Just some snail mail porn for you to look at, in case you are interested in what goes on on my end! If you'd like to receive a letter from me, send me an email with your address, or DM on Twitter!
Outgoing Mail
Envelopes look really weird without recipient addresses on them. Like people, without eyebrows.
Outgoing Mail
I'm not very good at decorating envelopes. So I am hoping to wow my recipients with my incredible letters. Or not.
I have been using a variety of fountain pens and inks, for the most part, with the occasional gel pen thrown in. Here's a little look see at what I've been up to!
TWSBI Diamond 540 1.1mm stub + Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline
I love pink in this pen. Refilled it a few times with this ink - Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline.
Close Up
I like this picture. No filter!
Pilot G2 Pink Gel Pen
Pink Pilot G-2 gel pen.
Close Up
I used my Waterman 12 eyedropper loaded with the remainder of my Diamine Ancient Copper sample (yes. I have been blabbing about this ink all week, sorry.)
Close Ups of Page Numbers
I used a different pen + ink combination for each page here! Both sides are different!
Colour Matched
Magical. The envelope and lighting makes this turquoise Lamy Safari look somewhat more green, and I like it!
Pretty Pens
Have you noticed I'm obsessed with that acrylic pen now?
TWSBI Diamond 540 EF + Sailor Apricot
A cute combination, no?

Your pens are just yummy!

Thank you! It's a TWSBI Diamond 540 in amber! They've discontinued the 540s because they're releasing the 580s soon (newer model basically) but you might still be able to find a few stragglers :D

Got your email too, will reply shortly!!

*licks pens* Well, they're not as tasty as they might appear. ... Just kidding yes they are they taste like MAGIC. HAEHAEHAE! 6 letters, that's totally doable!
