What would I give my own grandchildren this holiday season from

Posted by Gail, Chief Pencilier on

Yesterday I was asked this by a Customer in her 70's who found the choices overwhelming.  Without a doubt, my fictional grandchildren would each get:

  • one dozen random assorted copper ferruled pencils
  • the Freehand script font
