Mailbox Goodies: Inky Goods

Surely you've all heard Rohrer & Klingner released a Limited Edition blue-black ink (only 1000 bottles worldwide!). At first I wasn't going to get it but then I thought, I don't have any blue-blacks at all, maybe this one is a nice first choice. Also, I liked the idea of having one of a thousand bottles. I ordered a bottle from Goulet Pens, along with two ink samples during their 20% off sale - Noodler's El Lawrence, and Pelikan Edelstein Turmaline.

Hooray for the new green bubble wrap!

Ok so I got too excited and started opening it (the right side) when I realized I should take a picture of it first.

I had requested a cat drawing because I had read about Drew's drawings on FPN. I did say if they didn't have time, not to worry, but I still got this super cool drawing in the pretty new Noodler's Liberty's Elysium.
I was pleased to see the new biodegradable bubble wrap that Goulet Pens has been in the process of introducing. It seems just as good as the non-biodegradable stuff, so I was really happy about that. My limited edition box was totally mangled inside though, I have no idea how it happened and I'm really bummed about it. Le sigh.

An inky little order.

Sigh. My poor box.

On the bright side, I love the Turmaline (not surprising), and the El Lawrence, which I picked up by recommendation of Rori - thanks Rori, GREAT suggestion! I am definitely going to get a bottle of this. Actually... I may need both. "Need".

Yummy. Motor oil-y.

A great first blue-black!
