Entering a Pencil Phase

I go through phases, like most humans I guess.  (If you are not a human, you probably should not read any further because you just won't understand.)  This blog goes all over the place because I have interests and phases that go all over the place.  And for the past couple of days, I have been using this little baby more and more:


I have begun to remember the things I love about pencils -- their simplicity, their usefulness, their cheapness (unless, of course, you buy high-end Blackwings or pencils like that, which I admit I have done).  So I think for the near future I will be using pencils more and more, and will be working on a "week of pencils."


Because, after all, I STILL have THIS:

    1. Ha!! Well, maybe I FOUND all of the pencils your daughter lost, then! She can have some of them back if she wants... :-)

  2. I've been in a bit of a pencil phase for about a year or so now, ever since I returned to using wooden pencils last summer. I'm definitely looking forward to your week of pencils! And that bin of pencils just looks amazing - I'd love to have a look through there :)
