happy september!

this post is for my brother, who turns 25 years old today!!!! yay!!! i love my brother!! he is so much fun to hang out with! he makes everyone in my family laugh all the time! i am proud of the person he is & so thankful that he is my brother! happy birthday!!

something really cool about my brother is that he likes to do wood turning on a lathe. he handcrafts pens out of different kinds of woods... it is so amazing! yesterday i took photos of some of his handcrafted wooden pens & posted them for sale in my etsy shop.

they are uniquely designed by him, so you probably wouldn't find another one out there that would look exactly like his designs! they are a really great gift idea for husbands, fathers, etc. or even for recent graduates or for those who have just started back to school! :)

** these are ballpoint twist pens, made from different woods! these pens use cross style refills, which can be bought in most office supply stores. below each photo is the kind of wood used for the pen.
