all this week i'm featuring FANTASTIC gift ideas that will suit anyone with a stationery sweet tooth -- whether you're addicted, like me, or just an occasional admirer. check back often!
i saw this DIY idea on design*sponge a few months ago and pinned it right away. [unrelated: are you on pinterest? come follow me, i pin lots of pretty paper that may or may not make it onto the blog ;) ] the contributor, halligan, wrote: "why not initiate a pen pal communication line by sending a special pen-and-paper set in the mail?" i couldn't agree more!

the DIY instructions cover dyeing & creating your own feather pens, a downloadable file for printing your own stationery, and tips for purchasing matching stationery if you'd rather go that route. a genius handmade holiday gift!
