    Coffee

    I got a little shipment of coffee pen blanks from Alan Trout a few weeks ago. He asked that I post the results.

    Hmm, coffee and cream, I'd say Very nice! It would be a great pen for my wife, since she loves coffee so much. I would think a coffee shop could use a few of those to sell as gifts.

    Barry- an old friend manages a world famous, way to expensive, one on every corner coffee place. Sold 3 there already. The best part is that they smell like coffee. Alan has been more than accommodating in helping me learn how to make these blanks after I spamed him mercilessly...Thanks again Alan!!!

    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    I'll second the motion. LOML has been after me to find a 'leopard skin' pen blank. One of these might shut 'er up.
