Engraved MP3 Player
Who doesn't love free gifts? I just got this cute little MP3 player (thank you Staples) with my order of paper and ink today. I thought it would make a great player for my daughter, but I was informed it was a little "too boyish". Luckily it had a metal case. No problem! Broke out my old hand-held engraver and went to work.
Why, you ask, do I own such a contraption? My first job in high school was for a monograming and engraving store. I used to draw on the plain Zippo lighters for my friends and fill the fronts, sides, backs, etc with tiny illustrations. Apparently I was the only person who had ever used the thing, so in the end they just sent it home with me. I have never been one to be able to throw art supplies out, and every so often I find a use for it.
I know I should be doing something, okay anything else, than doodling on an item which was perfectly functional to start with but I just can't help myself! Sometimes I just have to get it out of my system, plus its fun to do things sometimes that I don't have to sketch out or plan out or even care how they come out!
Now I just have to wait to see what the boss lady thinks!
