I am getting into the spirit of October with pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin oatmeal cookies but what really gets me in the holiday spirit is making sure my ink samples are decked out too! Ink-a-Pet, which we’ve mentioned here on the blog in the past is the clever creations of 8-year-old Calvin and his team of furry helpers, Rocky and Chai. Any business with feline interns is a business I will support. Those feline interns need kibble! And Calvin, as a young pen enthusiast, is an entrepreneur worth supporting too.
I added to my ink sample vial holder collection with another sleeping cat stand and cat ghost costume ($4) and the new penguin holder ($7) with witchy accessories ($4). I also got a pumpkin costume ($4) for my Inktopus ($7) to wear.
These ink sample holders are cute, stable and effective. If you haven’t gotten an Ink-a-pet to keep your sample vials from tipping over, what are you waiting for?
I have had several more of these holders but I keep giving them away when people oooo and ahhhh over them. Since my first Ink-a-Pet was a gift, it seems appropriate to continue to pay it forward.
One of the best things about the new costumes is that the cat ghost costume GLOWS IN THE DARK! Oh, yeah.
Calvin also included the cat pen rest ($5) with microsuction base to add even more cats into my house. Calvin, I have enough cats already!!!! At least this one doesn’t require more kibble. I really like the pen rest. I didn’t realize how often pens rolled on my desk and this lovely stand has put a stop to it. I think I need one of these pen rests in glow-in-the-dark material too!

You had me at “glow in the dark” … but “optional pirate accessories”! Shut up and take my money! 🙂
UPDATE: Received my Inktopus today with her ghost and pirate costumes. Couldn’t be happier! Honestly, the fact that she’ll someday stabilize an ink vial for me is just a bonus 🙂
You are an ebil enabler! Those costumes are just too cute!
I bought one of Calvin’s first batch of Sleeping Cat sample holders but didn’t realize he had branched out! Headed to Ink-A.-Pet right now!
