New Website, Journaling, and Visconti Pens

We have been very busy at Two Hands lately, continuing with our spring cleaning and restocking after the holidays. We have also been working on our new website which should be up soon. It will be more user-friendly- much easier to navigate, improved checkout, and with updated products and product information.

Many customers ask us if we offer journaling classes.  But recently we talked with one of our customers about teaching journaling classes. Cynthia Morris lives in Boulder and teaches, among many things, journaling and creative writing.  While in the store she showed me a couple of her journals that she had in her bag.  Seeing her journals and our conversation during our brief visit in the store was very inspiring to me.  I decided then and there that I would approach the new journal that sat on my desk in a different way, including more sketching and art work with the writing . We are hoping to have Cynthia teach a class at Two Hands in the fall so that anyone interested can be equally inspired.  If you are hoping to enhance or tap into your hidden creativity, this class may be for you. You can learn more about Cynthia at her website- OriginalImpulse.com.   Watch our website for the class schedule to appear later in the summer.

For pen lovers, the new Visconti Homo Sapiens line of pens will be out soon. We have the pens on order and are very excited about carrying them. The pens are unique in many ways.  Besides the flexible nib, wide-opening spring clip, large ink well, and customisable cap which are standard on most Visconti pens, the Homo Sapiens  line are made from lava from Mount Etna in Italy. The black body of the pen is enhanced by bronze trim which, on the pen I tried out, had a beautiful patina already forming.  The pens are available in fountain, ball point, and rollerball.
