    did you use any preservative,was any necessary? I have made some beet ink and black walnut ink, but am wondering about mold. I like the idea of herbs.

    I. Love. This.

    We were just using feathers we found to write with– but we were using finger paint! This is a much better idea:) And the homemade paper and ink as a holiday gift, oh yes!

    We do have are share of cold days in the fall, but they are spread in between the warms days. We still haven’t put the shorts away. Though I think that will only last for maybe two more weeks. I can’t complain. I feel so blessed to live here after living three years in Michigan.

    Princess says that she has always wanted to write with a feather pen. Perhaps this is something we need to work on.

    I love this idea!! I’m trying desperately to find inexpensive handmade gifts to give this year–I was considering gift baskets of herbal cleaning supplies. This is another idea!! Thank you…glad you had a wonderful time in Williamsburg, too!
