Getting Straight to the Point, The Sharpest Giveaway Ever!

Okay, confession time. I have an obsession with having a perfectly pointed pencil. This is the truth. Just ask Jen. When I do a running record sometimes I will sharpen 9 - 10 pencils so that I can be sure to have a pointy point the entire time I am writing. 

SO . . . when I heard about the Quietest Pencil Sharpener I was intrigued. . . . because the pencil sharpeners at our school only sharpen ONE side of the pencil. 

I began dreaming of a world where the pencil was sharpened ALL THE WAY AROUND!

And I am here to tell you that this world actually exist!!!! I got my pencil sharpener about a month ago and decided to hold off writing my review until it had been thoroughly tested. 

It is awesome. 

The points get pointier, I am sharpening fewer pencils to do running records because these pencils stay pointy longer than any I have had before. 

I am in love. 

And, you can be in love too!!! 

I was so excited that I wanted someone else to have one too! SO I sent a little message . . .

AND . . .

I also wanted to thank you for the sweet comments following the letter to my Granny last week. It was therapeutic to write and was a gateway for tons of lost memories. I would highly recommend writing a letter to someone you have lost. :)


  1. Your blog is stinkin' cute!

    Thanks for the chance to win one of these sharpeners!


  2. I love these sharpeners! I would so LOVE to add the red one to my blue and green one!


  3. Thanks for visiting my site earlier. I'm glad you left your blog name. I love your site and I am your newest follower. I just got finished posting and I was talking about how math is not my favorite subject to teach. I am glad to see that someone loves math and has activity packets that I can buy to use in my classroom. Most of the stuff that I have found is reading. Thanks for creating these.

    I went ahead and posted about your Giveaway on my blog post tonight. I hope that helps me win this sharpener. I have wanted one for a while but just can't get myself to buy it yet. Hope I win!!! God Bless.
