It's A Sign

A few months back I found out about this really cool pen, called a TI-Pen, that allows you to write on the surface of glass without damaging the glass. I made one of these pens my first purchase for da' business in 2008. I am still getting used to it. It shows up better on certain colors and is dang near impossible to photograph.

I think this is going to work out great. I plan to sign all new pieces with this. In some tiny tucked away place. Won't it be fun when someone goes on PBS' Antiques Roadshow in 75 years, lol, with one of my pieces. "In January of 2008, Bogert started signing her work with titanium. Pieces with her original signature KABS are highly sought after. Later pieces signed with Kerry Bogert and not considered as valuable. The piece you have here doesn't have a signature and that tells us it is before 2008. I would estimate the value of the piece you have here at $100,000."

Oh, and I also plan to # the pieces in my "line" too. Very much like artist who signs "prints". When I told my sister about this whole idea/plan she said "yeah, that's hot." I am so relieved to have her approval!

In homely news... it is now 4 down and one to go on the tummy virus. I am the only one, as of yet, unaffected, or should I say infected. Though, I have to admit, as much as I am chanting "I will not be sick, I will not be sick" over and over, I am a little queasy today. Ugh. But that could be because I have been awake since 3am taking care of Andrew. Keep your fingers crossed that it is just fatigue!! The biggest bummer with this whole virus thing... I am missing book club tonight!! For the first time since March of 2006!! I am devastated!! Those girls better pick a good book for February. :)

so very cool - I'll have to buy a signed piece for my niece so she could collect $$ down the road! Hope you can dodge the bug.
