Happy American Thanksgiving = Happy November Giveaway!

Remember the time D'Angelo sent me a shot of her awesome handmade paper pens? Well pencils are unfortunately a little harder to make since it's not so easy to pick up pencil lead to make 'em with. Enter Earthzone Recycled Pencils!

Last month Earthzone kindly offered to send me some pencils not just to test out but to giveaway!

Being my first official review-giveaway, I couldn't wait! But when they didn't show, I started to think they'd accidentally gotten lost in the mail. Turns out we have a new mailman, who's been putting our mail in a wooden box on our porch instead of our mail slot... Oops!

However, as usual, I digress... I excitedly took these eco-pencils for a jot, and I gotta say I was impressed! They without a doubt live up to their "World's Most Environmentally Friendly Pencil" claim...
  • Made from 100% recycled newspaper and graphite core.
  • No toxic chemicals
In fact, just like D'Angelo's paper pens, "old, whole newspaper sheets are flattened and cute into pieces. A coat of water-based glue is applied to the newspaper to tightly wrap the graphite." As shown below:

But my two fave things about these pencils...?

The Special Edition pencils keep their newspaper lookin' charm AND they make the perfect ecoCompanion to my ecojot journals, notebooks and sketchbooks!

Therefore, it only made sense for my November Giveaway to be both a 12 pack of Earthzone Special Edition Pencils and a handy 9x12" ecoKids Sketchbook... Perfect for some holiday sketching!

Contest will run till November 30th. I'll announce the winner on December 1st.

As it's American Thanksgiving today, how about you tell me what you're most thankful today as a comment entry? Such as the fact, that I am very thankful for your visit to my blog.... Thank you!

Am off to Connecticut to eat some turkey, and my Uncle M's super awesome mash potatoes... Happy American Thanksgiving!

See you back here on the 1st ;)


PS- Just 'cause, how about an extra entry for helping me advertise "my first official review-giveaway" if you tweet about this post or share it on Facebook profile? ;D Simply mention if you did as a separate comment!

I am so thankful for my children, as I live those 4 ornery scamps more than life itself. Last week I went to the hospital for1 major surgery, but ended up having an emergency 2nd surgery late that pm into the next am, as I was bleeding internally. I saw my angels that morn & they left me to come back to my precious kiddos ,, whom I am still meant to be here to raise. So this yr, I am thankful for life, love, my kids, the power of prayer, making it one day at a time, and my Faith-my precious Guardian Angels let me come home, it was not my time yet, but it was really close. Anyway these would make an awesome gift for my kids as they love love drawing-at that stage now..thx for c

One more thing, have you heard of the riti printer? It uses coffee grinds to print, and is hand powered...although it's not in mass produce stage yet, I hope this works! Think about how many starbucks their are-they could at least make their ads in coffee ink! yum ;)
