TWSBI has really been on a roll lately, having just released the ECO White RoseGold. Before that they had released four new standard inks as part of their permanent line-up: black, blue-black, blue and red. In the excitement of the holidays and the new year, I’ve haven’t posted about them yet, but the inks are great. Of course they are.
They’re great inks, with nice flow, smooth and feel great coming out onto the page. The bottles are frosted glass, and while it’s all about how the ink performs, it doesn’t hurt when it comes in a beautiful bottle too.
Our first shipment of the special edition ECO White RoseGold went quite quickly, but we are expecting another shipment soon, March-April. If you’re interested in having someone sign you up for an email notification, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can let someone know if you’re stopping by either shop. It’s a beauty. TWSBI is always doing great things, and I can’t wait to see what else is in the queue for the rest of 2020.
And in case you were looking for a little entertainment, here I am with the two Wonder Pens babies, filling up some TWSBIs with these fabulous new inks. Caleb (age 5) has already filled his share of pens, but this was Naomi’s (age 2) first one. I always smile when people tell me they’re nervous about using bottled ink, or they’re worried about how complicated it’s going to be. In life, we handle much, much more complicated physical things: filling the tank in your car, driving your car, making a cup of coffee, changing a diaper, making an omelet. You can do it; we all believe in you.
In any case, we’re deep into winter and I’m surrounding myself with stacks of books and notebooks and various sorts of chocolate snacks at my desk. As much as I’m looking forward to spring, it’s still two months away; I’m trying to embrace this season of cold and bundling up and frosty breathed walks with the dog. It’s hard to believe how quickly days can fly off the calendar, and these sweet days with the kids charging up the stairs wearing capes or schlepping around to music lessons are going to be gone before I know it.
