    Does it count if I gift myself for Christmas? Hope so, because that’s what I’m doing! Can’t wait to get my aqua Nemosine stub, and the new Shimmertastic inks in Tropical Glow and Enchanted Ocean! Heaven forbid that you carry an aqua pen or ink that I don’t have! 🙂

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Haha totally counts, Kathy! I had a toss up between gifting myself a new Edison or Vanishing Point or getting tickets to a Luke Bryan concert for Christmas and the concert won out but definitely still eying those pens when the Christmas gift money from family comes in! 😛 Enjoy your new Nemosine and inks, Enchanted Ocean has become a fast favorite around here!

      • Tom Johnson

        Lydia, I know which Edison pen you want 😉 but which Vanishing Point is tempting you?

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          The Blue Carbonesque! I have had my eye on it since I start here but I just borrowed a friend’s VP and I love how it feels and writes so that cemented the desire

          • Tom Johnson

            That was my first VP in 1999! Not much choice back then, and it has been a wonderful pen for 17 years, just like new and used daily for nearly all of that time.

          • Lydia At Goulet Pens

            All the more reason for me to want one! That’s a pen to last a lifetime for sure. I better start saving my pennies cause now I’m feeling the itch to snag one!

    • Tom Johnson

      Kathy, which size stub Nemosine did you get? I finished my Christmas cards today, used Rouge Hematite and Emerald of Chivor (both 1.5 mm). Wrote notes using Diamine Brandy Dazzle in 1.1 mm, it is such a lovely ink, it sparkles so much. My Christmas gift to myself was my Arctic Currents Nouveau Premiere, 1.1 mm stub. I used it to address the envelopes.

      • Kathy

        Tom, I got the .6 stub. I really like that nib. It doesn’t give you the line variation of the wider stubs, of course, but it’s a neat look and fun to write with. Of course, the day I receive my package (yesterday), I see the new Nemosine nibs at GPC! I’ve totally fallen for those, and have added a few to my next list. Jeez, I don’t even get the GPC box to recycling before I start another list!
