    Some Pens I've made

    So way back in January, on Facebook, I got suckered into one of those things that go around from time to time.

    This particular meme was 'pay it forward' and I made a post saying that the first 5 people to agree to participate, would get something made by me within the next year. The only catch was that if they agreed to participate, they too would have to make a post and do something for 5 other people.

    So, I finally got around to making some pens for the folks that signed on. Now we'll see if I can guilt them into living up to their commitment!

    Anyway, I made pens, and here they are.

    If any men had signed up, I would have made them a nice cigar pen...

    I didn't paint the tubes. The only one that you can kind of see through, is the green one, but you really have to look carefully to see anything.
