I had the very nicest favor done to me —
A friend sent me the TWSBI I’ve wanted the most! ORANGE!
Not sold in the USA!!!!
Nice that the Japanese postal service color coordinated their package with my pen!
I really love these crazy TWSBIs… they hold a huge amount of ink.
It is unusual for me to buy so many pens in a short time but they come and go —
you have to get the colors while you can.
I filled it with two samples of Robert Oster mixed —
Orange Zest and Orange, both of which I want!
Using up samples in this way is fun and I get colorful entries in my work journal.
This winter has gotten to me. I’ve never wanted winter end so much.
The constant threat of snow storms from NOAA, our ever-changing schedule…
And so dang cold! So I can get behind “killwinterwithorange, popular this year.
I love drawing pens… They are a technical exercise
and take me back to Big Daddy Ed Bowen’s high school drafting classes,
except I loosen them up — but still want to get the parts right!
I am a huge fan of ORANGE, and had not even realized how many orange pens
I’ve collected, especially if you include the lovely rose golds!
I am not a snob… my pens range from $3 to $160 (gift),
but most fall into the under $40 category. Happy colors!

Me… why I journal!
