I agree with so many of these! Especially words and pink pens. I have a pen problem. My husband and kids steer me away from office stores and those lovely aisles in my favorite stores. I have a lot of pens and I love them all. : )


Wow! The colors in those 2 photos are spectacular! Glad someone was adopted! 🙂
