I have been a huge fan of Faber-Castell for a while now.  My kids love art & drawing so I have purchased many of their art products in the past.  They have very affordable art supplies!  My kids love their products, but this time I got to try something for myself.  I was so excited to receive some fancy schmancy pens for myself.  I will be the first to admit that they are a true luxury for me!  My favorite is the LOOM Rollerball pen!  The one I received is a cute, funky pink color and writes soooo smoothly!  Any graduate would be tickled to receive one of these!

One lucky reader will win 2 Faber-Castell pens with a value of more than $100!!
