Greetings pen and paper lovers! I always enjoy meeting like minded folks who support my small business, whether online or in person. The other day I sent out some fountain pen ink cartridges by J. Herbin to my customer Stan. On the same day, I delivered one of my first local orders to Alonso, an artist based here in Las Vegas.
Back again with another update. I announced the winners on my first live stream on Instagram on July 5th. I originally planned to do it on my YouTube channel, but apparently it takes 24 hours to be approved for live streams on their platform, which I didn't know about (go figure). But I had fun streaming on IG, talking about several of the pen and stationery prizes I gave away. I may just continue on IG doing live streams on a period basis, although I really want to grow my audience on YouTube. We'll see how it goes between now and the next contest in October. We'll get to that in a minute, but without further ado, here's the lucky winners of the contest! *drum roll*
November 5th has been known since 2012 to many fountain pen enthusiasts as "Fountain Pen Day", a worldwide event that celebrates something most lay people would consider "old fashioned", but is still a preferred way by pen and paper lovers to write by hand, myself included.
