Fountain pen day

fpdlogo2I have been so busy with my new job that I haven’t been very connected to the stationery world recently.
I haven’t been aware of this but…
THERE IS AN OFFICIAL DAY FOR FOUNTAIN PENS!!!
Many thanks to the Fountain Pen Day committee who emailed me regarding this exciting piece of news. I may not have time to blog new reviews, but I sure would have time to talk about this very important day.
Of course, the name is known as “Fountain Pen Day“. Sweet and simple and to the point. When is it?
MARK YOUR CALENDARS, YOU ALL!!!
It’s going to be celebrated on the first Friday of November each year. The very first fountain pen day is going to be on 2nd November 2012. Just four days before my birthday, too! How awesome is that! I can already foresee that November is going to be a great month (with probably more fountain pen acquisitions too I guess…)!
Do take some time to browse through the Fountain Pen Day website, it is filled with various posts, links and suggestions on the event. Go, go, go look now! You’re a fountain pen enthusiast, I know you’re interested to know more about your special day!
So, what do you plan to do on 2nd November?

    "So, what do you plan to do on 2nd November?"…um, buy another pen? Bottle of ink maybe? A Notebook? All three probably!

I would love to hear your thoughts!
