Yesterday I had a vision, okay so it was more like a thought. I was looking for a pen, but couldn’t find one and thought gosh darn it, where are the gosh darn pens? Okay, so I was a little bit more colorful in my language, but you don’t need to know that much lol.
As I was swearing, I looked over at a keychain that I was making for a customer and it clicked, what if I made some pens that look like keychains, but they have a pen inside? So I tried and was not very successful lol.
You cannot see the other side of the pen because I wanted to take a picture with the gold on top for some odd reason. Anyway, the other side doesn’t look very good. The pen does not want to cooperate, but perhaps I didn’t give it enough chance. Regardless, it won’t work because it’s too bendy and I just don’t think anyone will want to use this. It’s not refillable because once I weave the material around the pen, that’s it, it’s permanently in there. If I could find some sort of hard plastic to weave around that you could push the pen in, perhaps you can refill it.
My next thought was a Stylus pen for your touch screen tablet and cell phone. I have a mini stylus and I started making a keychain that the nub could attach to, but there is a component in the stylus that my keychain does not have that will make the nub work. Unless I find out what that is, I will not be very successful. I am not going to give up on this because I really think it’s a cool idea, but rather I am going to find alternative ways to make it work. I will get there, eventually.
Anyway, been working all day making earrings and keychains for Valentine’s Day and now it is definitely time for bed. Until next time!
