Mailbox Goodies: INKED & Then Some

Since we were away for almost two weeks, I have neglected not only my blog but the mailbox as well. My birthday also passed, and while we don't celebrate our birthdays or exchange crazy (or any) gifts, Kevin always likes to surprise me. Good thing I'm so slow I never figure out what's going on, or his job would be a lot more difficult. This epic gift was waiting for me at home.

All the inks! No doubles in this batch.

*Drool* How will I pick my favorites?? I guess it doesn't matter. MUAHAHAHA.

How will Kevin ever top this?
I also brought home a few goods with me, including a Waterman Havana Brown ink (which has been on my wish list for awhile), and a few Jinhao fountain pens. I also acquired some goods from the University of Manitoba. Just some random fun things to experiment with. The Sailor comes from Goulet Pens after I was accidentally sent the wrong colour ink! Thanks Goulets!
Jinhao Fountain Pen
They're pretty cool.
Various Goodies - Sharpie, Faber-Castell, PaperMate
This would suggest I have artistic capabilities. But I do not.

Also waiting for me at home were two Pawalla boxes I won for the kitties, full of surprises! Half of this stuff has been opened and the cats have already gotten into most of it. So helpful they are.

This is like cat heaven. Food. Box.

Oh, and catnip.
Last but not least, a big thank you to Pentel for sending this amazing parcel with some nifty marker pens I haven't yet tried, and a set of Sliccis in the 0.25 mm size! Awesome.

Wow Kevin is amazing! Have fun inking your pens with all of your new inks. The Finito pens rock they are better to me than the sharpie pen. Enjoy all of your gifts!

Estivalia said...

now that's some epic mail! Way to go Kevin, you certainly know the way to a girl's heart ;)
(cough cough does he have any available brother? *wink* *wink*)



I look forward to see your reviews of all of these. Because you DO know that you HAVE TO review them all, right? The power of bogging compels you. Or something like that ;p

Azizah Asgarali said...

Ohhh yesssss... I wonder if JetPens will get them...

Azizah Asgarali said...

LOL he has his moments :D

Azizah Asgarali said...

Understood.

Azizah Asgarali said...

LOL oh that'll take forever. I'm coming up with a newer more streamlined ink review plan so I bet I can do it. ... It'll still take forever.

I love the Waterman Brown. Their main ink at my local shop is Waterman, and while I want to try some other browns, that Waterman brown has become one of my main go to inks. My Safari Lamy is always filled with it! It's a delightful color that pleases me everyday, even on days when I wish I had brought one of my Esterbrooks (which are generally filled with aqua, J. Herbin mystosis bleu, and/or Lamy red). How is it possible for a brown to make me happy in a "bright color" mood? Easy - it writes like a dream and places such a striking line on the page that you can't help but smile!


And wowsas, those other items are unbelievable. I look forward to hearing about the Jin Hao fountain pen.

Some people sicken me. IT'S NOT FAIRRRRR!!!!! *breaks down into inconsolable tears...*
Thanks to you I now can't sleep for want of an Eversharp Doric with adjustable nib...

Azizah Asgarali said...

I'm so excited to finally have Havana Brown! One of my kitties is a Havana Brown and I'm thinking, if this ink is anything like her coat colour, it'll be awesome hee hee! Can't wait :D

Mina said...

OMG. That's a majestic line up of ink bottles. If Kevin ever wants to top that, there are always those custom heritage pens that's named after/with body that match the inks (there are only six of them though)...

Azizah Asgarali said...

Nooooooooo I don't want to sicken you!! I'm sorry. You should get yourself a Doric though. It might help console you. <3

Azizah Asgarali said...

I have passed this information on to him LOL. Our anniversary is this Friday but that might be hoping for too much hahahahha
