There is lots going on. SO MUCH.
The main thing you need to know about today is that I have some new pen styles. This post highlights three of the new styles: the Knurl twist pens - robust and grippy, slightly on the heavier side; the RAW rollerballs - sleek non-nonsense metal bodies; and the handsome devil on the left here, the Gear pen - a ballpoint twist pen with an eye catching design and great balance.
There are more new styles on the way. LOTS more. Keep an eye out for new pictures coming up. I'll just drop a few words to tease you: Steampunk. Victorian. Mini pens. Crochet hook necklace.
The Ornatelier will be at the The Fall 2017 Albuquerque Home Remodeling Expo inside Expo New Mexico at the fairgrounds again this month. The show has all the things you need or want when you think about updating and improving, from flooring to roofing and everything in between -- even clothing and landscaping, and gourmet foods.
There is a whole hall JUST for local artisan vendors (that's me!), where you can get handmade accessories, decor, chocolate, jerky, candles, jewelry and more. I'll be there in the back corner spot, not only with my usual selection of pens, knives, and functional decor, but with a NEW line! I'm getting into handmade one of a kind speakers, for the fashionable audiophile. My audio expert will be on hand to talk to you about your speaker needs, and if you've got a portable device with your favorite music on it, you'll be welcome to give our speakers a test drive.
Admission is $6 for adults, but you can get a $2 discount with a coupon. That I'd put here if I could find it. Will follow up on that before the event!
