I made a gift of three pens for Christmas. More may disappear as time goes on.

Fantastic pens and a great group of presents. I really like the cards you have with them. Nice way to advertise the site and make them personal.

Keep it up.

Great job Karson! Excellent gifts.

I too gave some pens and pencil sets for gifts….I did not include a card such as yours though….that is a excellent idea….I had considered the specie card that you showed on a previous post….but due to time constraints I was left to telling the recipient the type of wood their gift consisted of.

Are those round top european pens? The boxes are cool too…..I had considered getting boxes but had decided I would make something for them…well I ran out of time so had to put them in velvet pouches I found at a local craft store….

Needless to say…start early…and never think you have too much time….
