I know that I mentioned before that I like to do crafty types of things. What I did not mention is that my husband does also.
He likes to tinker with small stereos, tape players, and headphones. He also likes to make pins, bracelets, and necklaces. He has shown a remarkable skill in drawing out designs with gel pens that have wings and shields that are patriotic in nature. He loves the USA and isn’t ashamed to let others know. He uses gel pens of many different colors: silver, bronze, gold, red, white, and blue.
He would draw out the design, then color it in with the pens. There is one thing that has caused a small problem though. It is hard to find white gel pens. He uses gel pens so that when he coats the items he has made ( he uses clear fingernail polish which dries to plastic afterward) the ink does NOT run. Not being able to find the white gel has made it difficult to continue a favorite hobby. He has found one or two things that he can use as a substitute, but it’s not as easy as with a pen. At least he isn’t giving up on his hobby. I think that his continuing effort is something to be happy about.
