« Part 2: The Box Has Arrived... Part 3 of Pen Turner's Swap series no next part

Actually, the box isn’t “giant” – but it’s jammed full, and pretty heavy.
The box - unopened
The first thing I find when I open it is Tim’s extensive instructions to the swappers.
And then a sheet for each of us to fill in what we added and what we removed.
In-Out sheets for each swapper

The ream of paper!
Finally, after the ream of paper at the top, here are the blanks!
Top Layer

Top layer unpacked

More blanks!
The box started with five blanks, five pens, and five pen kits. By the time I got it, it still has five pen kits, but nine pens, and 42! blanks.
Nine pens!
I’ll be adding two pens to the box – a red and black acrylic cigar pen, and a very pretty Zebrawood Euro style.
Eight of the box's pens, plus the two I'm going to add

This looks like a lot of fun. I may have to get in on this. My daughter reminds me every time she comes home, “Dad, no more bowls until you make me pens.”

Wow that’s a lot of blanks Niles. It’s probably not a good idea to post a picture on the internet with your home address on it, you never know who’s looking.
