you know that we belong in the presidential suite

Hi guys, sorry to leave you hanging there like that.

I know that I keep saying that things have been a little mad recently but things really have been a little mad recently. It's been non stop orders, sales, launches and deadlines. All of which have kept me from blogging. But, I've had some really exciting stuff on, which culminated in a fabulous evening at the the Gherkin on Tuesday at a launch for a new pen 'Spire' by Cross. If you don't know their beautiful products then take a peek at their site HERE. I know that I am forever extolling the virtues of the lowly old ballpoint but there's nothing like a little luxury from time to time, right?

You know, I've always hoped for a collaboration, of some sort, with a pen company and I couldn't have wished for a better one than Cross pens and I have the lovely ladies at their PR company to thank for that. So thanks, girls!

And, of course the experience was made all the more enjoyable for having my part time manager/personal assistant/tour manager/life organiser/best buddy with me. Cheers, mate.

Anyway, I am currently deadlineless (call the Oxford dictionary I've just invented a new word) but I do have a huge bag of London underground souvenirs which should finish off my travel Moleskine nicely. Okay lets draw.......

I take it you're still going nibless... Call the Oxford! I've owned a Cross since 1971, and that one was gifted to me. Very sweet.

Congrats on teaming up with Cross. My Cross pen is approaching 30 years old. Looks just as good as the day I received it as a gift. It's engraved with a scrolling pattern and was the only Cross available at the time that didn't look like the ones everybody else had.

Thank you so much, guys.

It's lovely to hear your stories of your Cross pens. It was an utter pleasure to be involved with them in some way. Plus, I now have two beautiful Cross pens of my own - one ballpoint and one fountain. i look forward to working with them both for many years to come.

Cheers my dears.

Hi Andrea. One question, how do you get your scanner to pick the fine detail of your work? Is it the quality of your scanner? Thanks.
