princesasylvia : I can't get my noodlers pen to work.
marisatsuhako : Oooooh! I just ordered my noodler's pen this morning! Nice to see you using it too. ✨✒️✨
melissapher : @princesasylvia what kind of ink are you using?
princesasylvia : The black kind. :) the one from the kits we got from you.
melissapher : @princesasylvia that's the problem. You want a fountain pen ink. Manuscript, noodler's, pelikan or private reserve are the brands you want to look for. The pen may be ruined (I made that mistake and ruined my first fountain pen), but try to clean it out. It may still work.
princesasylvia : Drat, ok thanks!
princesasylvia : @kimball_allison @grandma_mila we may have put the wrong ink in.
kimball_allison : @princesasylvia - I got the noodler ink. That is what broke and splattered all over. 😜

Tutorial for a space-saving blanket that's perfect for just about every kid emergency. Brought to you by @lilyjadeco. Link in profile.
sheila_m_80 : @mrsjah
lilyjadeco : Shut the front door. This is amazing! Can't WAIT to share!
melissapher : @lilyjadeco thank you!! The bag and the blanket have been life-savers on many occasions!
a_jillian_things : What is the yellow container? Is it for snacks? (I asked this on the @lilyjadeco image, but realized you were the original poster)
melissapher : @a_jillian_things I use it for storing formula. You can put up to 4 scoops of formula in each container and the lids can be swapped out so you always have a funnel for shaking the powder into the bottle. I got it at Daiso Japan (Japanese dollar store all over California). It's been a lifesaver with all three of my kids.
a_jillian_things : @melissapher thank you for the info! It's so cute and seems very functional. I love Daiso! I have a one in my city, actually! I will have to see if they stock them at my location :)
melissapher : @a_jillian_things it's been years, so I hope they still carry them. It's perfect for traveling!

reagenand : I'm planning my birthday in Deer Valley at my parent's mountain house. Do you have a great florist recommendation?
melissapher : @reagenand not sure of any in that area, but I would look into @soilandstem @floraldesignbyerin or @lizybowden. All three brilliant floral designers.
htheurer : @reagenand my sister @nkbernhisel is an awesome floral designer that does events in that area all the time. Get in touch with her.

Some days it seems like the moment I sit, lay, eat, work, I get interrupted by cries, whines, alarms… I've had a hard time getting much done lately, and it's frustrating. Getting this sweet necklace was a great reminder that even though it may be frustrating, there's nothing in the world I wouldn't do for my little rascals. Thanks for the amazing surprise @pamelalalasusan!!
lovers__and__dreamers : um, yeah. (to all of it)
bienfaitcalligraphy : aint that the truth 🙌
vineyardcalligraphy : Yes, so true! 💕😊
lilbitbeth : Here, here.
pamelalalasusan : Beautiful words and I'm so happy you like your gift!! Thank you for constantly inspiring me. 💗💗💗
