Pencil Madness Giveaway

Pencils - I loathe them. I love them. I need them. They are rarely where I want them. I have never seen it but I am quite certain they have legs as mine seem to walk off when my back is turned. I heard rumors that they were moving out and heading for nicer place to live.

Some place with a quiet pencil sharpener that won't eat them. Some place where sharp points are a safety hazard. That old rule about never running with a pencil will have to be applied! Ahh... if only I had a pencil sharpener made by Troy.

Picture
My pencils would come back to me!!




Did notice that I have 100 128 followers? I am so excited and to think I was just having a 50 follower giveaway a week or so ago. You know what 100 128 followers mean right? A giveaway!! I will give you only one guess as to what I am giving away.


The World's Most Wonderful Pencil Sharpener!


So how do you win?  You will receive one entry for item below. Winner will be drawn on St. Patrick's Day. May the luck 'o the Irish be with ya! (I know... bad accent!)

1) Follow my blog and store
2) Blog, Facebook, or Twitter about this giveaway
3) Email Troy - let him know we need pencil sharpeners in red or black! (hehehehe)
4) Join me in helping the teachers devastated by the tornadoes by linking to Kreative in Kinders: Teachers helping Teachers Linky: Blog about it and adopt a classroom. I am so passionate about this cause that it is worth 2 entries!!!

Who has only heard of a pencil sharpener in blue and green? Those are not the colors of my room. I would have to redecorate! I would have to have another bloggy makeover! This will never do...

I have faith that Troy will come through for me. He is already every teacher's hero... he made a quiet pencil sharpener that works!

Troy is also suffering from March Madness... his warehouse is empty! We shall all have a case of the March Madness blues as we sit and wonder when will it be filled. Don't worry plenty more are on the way. The giggles and squeals of delight you hear from the classroom next store, is the teacher who has already been to Troy's Store!

Never fear though... Troy is keeping track. We are on the list and our lucky winner will have one shipped by the end of April!


So celebrate with me the end of pencil madness and the love of 100 128 bloggy friends! Don't forget to place your order with Natasha for a 31 gift! And remember... March is only half done. There is more in store, there is more fun to be had.

I emailed Troy- I would love a black one! I've been wondering if these sharpeners were really as awesome as I'd heard.

With as amazing as the customer service is, an empty warehouse, and the love of teachers all over blogland... yes, I would say these sharpeners are worth every penny of the $19.95!

I follow your blog and store and need a pencil sharpener sooooo bad. As a matter of fact, I went to buy one from him and saw he was out for a while:/ All mine broke:(

Tara -

Troy is currently out of Pencil Sharpeners but you can email him and tell him you really want one. Don't forget to tell him it needs to be red or black (LOL!). He will tell you he can send you an invoice and put you on the waiting list for when they arrive. Troy is awesome!! It will arrive in April... sad for us but soon they will be shipping our way!

I have a blue one and I love it but I'd love it even more if it was a deeper blue... plus I need the green one, but they were sold out. Would DIE for a black one. How awesome would that be?! hahaha... poor Troy... we're gonna make him nuts!

Seriously in love with the sharpener! I can't wait for our school-wide order to come in so all my teacher friends will stop stealing mine!
