Cheers and happy holidays to everyone. Happy Sunday to those who don’t celebrate any holiday this time of year. Since Sunday is Christmas for me, and I’m busy the day or two before, I’m putting this together on Thursday and will schedule it for Sunday. I’ll catch up with any missed links next week.
I’ve been consistent all year and every post (except these Sunday link posts) starts life as a written draft. That ended this week when the last two Ink & Pen Notes started life electronically to save time. This, along with things being slower at work, meant I used my pens a lot less. So naturally I responded by inking up a few more and now have seven fountain pens inked up. I received the ink I mentioned last Sunday and it’s already in my pens. The Montblanc Lucky Orange is in my Sailor KOP and Monteverde Napa Burgundy is in my Pelikan M805. Both inks have made a very favorable first impression.
Pen Shows & Clubs
The US pen show season is over, with the next season kicking off in Philadelphia on January 13-15th.
What Others Are Using
So long… — The Purl Bug // (Video) This was the most depressing stationery news I’ve seen in awhile. I really enjoyed her videos and will miss them. I agree with most of the points regarding the growth of the pen community. Like many of her videos this one left me wanting something. I’ll be digging out my Hitchhiker’s Guide series and reading it again.
