Bright birthday card + Gelly roll moonlight pen

IMG_8446crop

I sent a birthday card to a friend at camp. I wanted to make sure the envelope was nice and bright and cheery. It was fun to decorate. I save these Beaker muppet stamps for special occasions, of course.

Are you wondering about that BRIGHT pink ink? I would be. I am loving it - it comes from my new Sakura Gelly Roll Moonlight gel ink pen from JetPens. They call this color "fluorescent vermilion orange" but it looks more pink to me. I guess it depends on the light. Anyway, it POPS off of both dark and light colors, and I believe it's waterproof. Apparently it glows under a black light, too, and best of all, it dries pretty quickly. I bought this pen in red, too, and now I'm considering getting a lot more colors. They write really well on postcards, and always look really bright. I realize I didn't take any photos of the pen itself, but let's consider this a mini-review: I love this pen and highly recommend it.

  3. Funny, I bought a "Coral" gel pen from JetPens a few weeks ago and it also turned out to be a bright pink. Still looking for a nice coral--now I know not to try this one! Though the pen itself sounds good.

    So, have you heard the GREAT NEWS? :D :D Bob Slate is coming back!! :D

  6. Oh wow. I just went to the website, too - 30 Brattle Street is where Wordsworth Books used to be, for those who have known Harvard Square for quite a while. Great location, great space. HOORAY! HOORAY! HOORAY!
