So, I Had a Package Arrive…

The other day I had my latest package arrive from the amazing Wonder pens of Toronto. As ever, an order is accompanied by a thank you note from Liz. Liz' postcards are almost as much fun to get as the package, their designs are great. I thought you could buy these on their web site, …
