I know that it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted. It’s not for lack of projects. I am currently in the process of crocheting two different blankets, I have two different sewing projects underway, plus I am in the middle of a refinishing project. The problem is that I don’t have enough pictures of any of these to make a decent blog post.
Jay has been working odd schedules and taking classes for work, so he hasn’t had a lot of productive time in the shop. He did get two more 3D wooden puzzles put together, but I don’t have pictures of them. So, we’ll go with the old stand by… pens.
This time I want to show you two different pens he made at my request.
Up first is the Icon Pen that uses the ballpoint end and ink from a Bic pen.
Aren’t they pretty? I have to admit that I’m pretty low maintenance, so I prefer these Bic pens. I also enjoy the cushioned grip. Plus, Jay loves me so he personalized one for me.
Next up I saw some kits and asked Jay to purchase them so that I can give them away for gifts. Are you ready for some absolute adorableness???
Come on, you have to admit that the little kittens in the baskets are ADORABLE!
Everybody needs a cat pen.
With their names on them. The outside two pens were given to the director and assistant director of the cat shelter where I volunteer. They have to do a lot of stuff that is difficult and would hurt my heart, so I wanted to show them my appreciation. They really loved them.
And one more picture because you just can’t have enough adorableness.
Finally, the last picture I have does not have a pen in it. Are you ready?
Do you know what these are? Any guesses? No, they aren’t extra-classy whistles. They are bottle openers. Every time I look at the very light middle one I think it looks like bone. It’s actually maple. Isn’t that neat?
I hate to make you groan, but even though this is the last of the pen pictures today I can guarantee that they will be back. Jay has a BUNCH of kits still to make, so you’ll be hearing more from his lathe.
Until then, may your nib be sharp and your ink well full!
