The birthday booty!
I wonder what brands and colors our April mystery Ink Drop contains?
I made such a fuzzy video that I took some pictures so I can really show you everything--whether you care or not--LOL! Lots of new cheap--or should I say inexpensive--pens! The Preppy pens (with the colors) are $3.95. The Noodler's clear piston pen is $14.00. The top clear pen with the black top is the free Noodler's pen I got with the Chinese ink color.
Here's the Parallel pens and ink sampler.
The black rubber rings and silicone grease (worked like a charm!!).
The cartridge filling units that look like syringes.
I loved Noodler's inks before I learned that the owner, Nathan Tardiff, basically runs his business by himself--creates and mixes all these inks by hand. He is a man of passionate convictions. Each of his inks seem to have its own story. You can click on a couple of the ink colors below and hear him tell you himself. :)
Anyways, here are the ink bottles that came yesterday:
Noodler's Green Marine and Navajo Turquoise...
...Apache Sunset and Antietam.
One side of the Noodler's Bernanke Blue and North African Violet...
...and the other side of the labels.
...and the other side of these pretty labels.
Only one other brand--hehe! Diamine's...
The last bottle--a large bottle of Noodler's Kung Te-cheng...
...showing you the variety of photos...
...all around the label. Including these two...
I did some emptying and filling and refilling yesterday. So I needed a new chart. Can't tell I love Noodler's, eh? ROFL! 14 pens filled (still have three empty ones) and only one isn't filled with Noodler's.
I didn't make a color sample for the Parallel pens because they are filled with their own special mixable ink and I have lots of colors to play with. Here's my box of pens when I was finished. :)
Do you think I am having fun with links now that I learned how to make good and proper ones? ROFL!
With Iggy's assistance, I have hopefully begun the process of permanently deleting my facebook account. Even when you tell them you want to delete it, they won't do it for 14 days. And there are apparently many ways you can accidentally click on something distantly related to facebook on other sites and then--bam!--you're back in. That must be what happened to me last time I tried to delete it. Facebook is kind of like that stalker you can't shake even when you call the police and have a restraining order. We'll see how I fare this time. I figure I'll wait three weeks to check just to be on the safe side. ;)
Well, I have to get moving...Caroline called and asked if she could come early...Dagan and Leah are coming over after work...and it is supposed to come close to 50 degrees today, so I plan to open some windows! Or at least crack some--LOL!
