Greetings! I’m Monica Alas and I started The Pink Pen in 2013 as a way to share my love for hand lettering and calligraphy with the world. My family was young and growing and addressing envelope after envelope became my soothing, quiet time after I'd tucked my little people into bed at night. Well, we've all grown and evolved and The Pink Pen has too. So, not only am I pretty crafty with a nib, ink and pens I'm also very observant, stylish and thoughtful making me quite a nifty gift giver. I am excited to use these skills to help make meaningful gift giving easy and fun for the giver and wow-how-did-he/she-know for the receiver.

In case you were wondering, I also love:

...Podcasts, glamping, trail running, clouds & the public library.

….Learning new things like tarot card reading, skateboarding and meditation.

...Making lists with little boxes next to each task to draw big, fat X's into when I finish something. Oooh, gets me excited just thinking about it!

…Love & celebrating. My husband and I were married on Valentine’s Day. My kids made their grand appearances on New Years and Cinco de Mayo, respectively.

I hope to help you express to the important people in your life how much they mean to you.

Ever grateful,
