TreeSmart Send ’em Back to School GREEN!!

How often do you think about pencils?  Me? Never! Except back to school time. The year after the baby moved out of the house, I went to Walmart for a regular shopping trip. I saw the back to school aisle and started the ‘ugly cry’ horrible gut wrenching SOBS!! It was embarrassing! I was crying so hard I had to leave!! Stupid empty nest!!

So now 15 years…. (WAIT WHAT?!?!?! 15 YEARS!!??) later, when I am shopping and I spot the Back to School aisles it makes me laugh.

TreeSmart has the coolest pencils!!  This Oregon based company makes pencils with old NEWSPAPERS!!!! Seriously?!?!?



Emma wrote her thank you cards out and used each and every color. The colors are perfect.
The pencils write smoothly and sharpen just like any other pencil. You seriously would never know they were made from newspapers! Besides they look COOL!!!
