Happy Birthday to Me :)
I thought you guys might like to see my simply wonderful Hubby's latest creation.
I recently found myself crusing fountain pen sites and wishing I had mucho dinero to spend on a fancy pen when suddenly it occured to me (duh!) that my Hubbs could make me a pen just as nice. And luckily for me my birthday was coming up so he couldn't resist when I demanded a new pen. :)
Here it is (balanced on the book I am currently reading...):
Hubby's pens write much better than most of the fountain pen brands out there. And since it is made to order, I get to pick the materials. :) This one is acrylic with platinum hardware and a medium nib. I decided to use the converter so I can fill it with liquid ink rather than using cartridges. I think liquid works slightly better than cartridges - better and smoother flow. You can read more about the pen at Hubby's blog Beads and Coves.
It's nice for both of us to get back to blogging and crafting after our long spell of stress which got in the way. I hope it is a sign of things calming down in general.
I'd like to thank everyone for their supportive comments about my Mom and also for just generally welcoming me back to the virtual world. It truly means more to me than I can express.
