Sharpies


You know...my favorite pen has to be a Sharpie fine point. What is yours? I use them for everything...writing to addressing envelopes, making things that need to be in permanent ink. I just want more all the time...in every color imaginable! Is this the world's greatest pen or what? I only wish that they would be made in a micron tip!!! Can you even imagine what a world we would have if this were available??
Below is a pic of my new Sakura brand Pen Touch white opaque pen...it is pretty cool. There are three sizes of this pen, and mine is the fine point 1.0 mm....but I don't think they carried the smaller tip...0.7 mm at the store where I found it. I did find this online store, Soft Expressions that carries them. I must have that tiny tip!

Other than the people we love, is there anything better than cactus and art??? Hmmm............Have a succulent, and artsy day!

Hello Julie,
Just to let you know that my little Kelvin passed away Monday night. You have always comment on him and said sweet things about him and I want to thank you for that. Hope all is going well with you and your family. I have been busy and need to do some blog reading see what I have been missing.
Blessing,
Bobbie

Wish that I could draw.. I do want the pens though ... add to my art collections that I don't use! I love the puffed cactus!

I'm not much of an artist, but I do like a well-made pen. I thought I'd lost my favorite one a while back and then found it in a purse I hadn't used for a while. It's the pen I use when I write letters by hand which isn't very often anymore. I seem to do most things on the computer now. Maybe letter writing will soon become a lost art form. I love the pics of you and the grandkids.

Pudgeduck...why don't you try making ATC's with us????? You would love it...

Judi- thanks!!! The pen I used to use years back was called a Pilot Razor Point, but I can't find them anymore, sadly! It had the perfect point.

I know what you mean about finding the perfect pens! I had a Uniball Signo white gel pen that I absolutely loved. Never clogged, lasted quite a while, good coverage, but expensive for a gel pen ($2.25 for one pen, plus shipping.) These pens are so good though, they are worth it, but now, the price is up to $3.70 for one pen! White is hard to come by, so I have to order and pay whatever price being charged.
