september calendar – sep 23

take some leftover berries and make your elderberry ink today. visit a local chicken farmer to get a feather to make a quill (or find one at a craft store).

want some extra fun? make some ‘parchment paper’ by brewing up a strong batch of black tea, wad up a paper (the more wrinkled up it is, the more texture it will have) and place the paper into the cooled tea. let it sit for about 5 seconds, pull it out and gently squeeze out the excess tea. carefully open it up and lay outside to dry. the paper will be browned and crinkly.
