What I Got - And How I Got It

What I got: a quick camera shot unpacking the Newton Pen I got from Shawn Newton Friday. Obviously I'm stoked. Beautiful in every way and quite a thrill to get! It's an alabaster and tortoise Gibby model and I can't wait to get some more writing time in with it. (Maybe more on the pen down the road.)

 

How I got it: I won one of Shawn's scholarship raffles! This pen for $10 from me while helping a high school student get some college money through Shawn's own craftsmanship, artistry and care for students.

 

Shameless plug: There happens to be a new-style Newton scholarship raffle ending today. Somebody's gonna' win--I can testify to that--so I'd encourage anyone interested to enter. Shawn's raffle Info here.

That's a very nice pen.

 

It's the exceptional "contest" where even if you don't Win, you still Win.

 

If there has been a better thought out, executed or worthwhile pen related cause by a FPNer, than Shawn's Scholarship program, I sure don't remember it. It seems to me that Everyone who participates in it somehow "comes out" a winner. :thumbup:

That's a wonderful pen. I hope that you really enjoy it. I've got my fingers crossed for today's raffle. I would love to have such a beautiful pen to use.

 

I agree that the raffle no matter what helps to make us all "Winners". Terrific work Shawn. I got my postcards the other day and have used a few of them already. Let me tell you they are well worth the contribution.

Guys I can't tell you how good it makes me feel to hear this. I'm really glad you like the pen (and the nib grind is on the way) and I'm glad you all like what I'm doing with the scholarship. :)

Thanks.
