It's A Giveaway! One Awesome Pencil Sharpener!

My enthusiasm for my new favorite tool, the "Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener" from Classroom Friendly Supplies, has paid off for one lucky reader!   Troy over at CFS has generously offered a sharpener as a giveaway gift to one of my readers!
"Groovy Green", my new desk buddy.
You can find my  review of the fun, funky, and EFFECTIVE "Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener" here.    After a few days of use, I've found myself begging dull pencils from friends and neighbors just so that I can have the pleasure of playing with my new toy, and presenting them with Super Sharp Tools in return.   Really.  Simple things do give me pleasure.  ;-)

Not only is it just plain FUN to give stuff away, but when it's something this unique and cool, I'm honored to be a part of it :)  These sharpeners appear to be becoming all the rage in classrooms these days, so I'm stoked to help introduce them to the sewing world as well :)  Mechanical pencils may work well for some, but me?  For pattern tracing, drafting, and marking, I'll take a good, solid, sharp-pointed "real" pencil any day, thank you!

For this giveaway there are 3 requirements:

  1. You need to have a facebook account (sorry, non-fb users...this is a requirement of the Classroom Friendly Folk, and as a small business owner myself, I fully understand and support that this is their method of marketing!).   
  2. If you win, you need to have "Liked" the Classroom Friendly Facebook page, and
  3. You do need to have a U.S. mailing address.

It's all super easy to do (all except for move to the U.S., that is, if you don't already live here).
Just click on your chosen button in the rafflecopter box below (this will take you to their facebook page), then leave a comment here and let me know your color choice (groovy green, firehouse red, cool blue, or midnight black).   And please make sure I have a valid email or link to reach you!

The giveaway will run for one week, and I'll let rafflecopter do its thing, then I'll post the winner next Saturday.

Good Luck!

  17. Groovy Green - I was so impressed with your endorsement that I already ordered three, but those were in red. My sister the teacher is retiring soon, and the pencil sharpener will be a great gift. She won't be able to use the school sharpeners anymore.
