10 Thankful Things for this Thanksgiving
1. A Monday off to clean out some pens and the excitement of new colours back in. 2. A Rhodia 80th Anniversary giveaway coming up - more details to come in a week! 3. The Toronto Pen Show. The anticipation of meeting people we've only gotten to know digitally, new pens, and practising restraint 4. A sleepy baby. 5. The dream of a Vac-Mini. 6. A neat stack of thank you cards and letters waiting for the mailbox. 7. Customers (and delivery people!) who still remember me even though I'm not in the shop everyday :) 8. Inks and inks and inks coming into the shop as we prepare for our wintry deep freeze. 9. J. Herbin's Stormy Grey Anniversary Ink coming soon - the end of October, fingers crossed. And...Jon, who has promised I can keep a bottle. 10. A dream that has turned into a family business that is actually paying the bills, feeding the dog, and keeping all my pens inked up.
