Zebra Pen's Review and Giveaway!

A winner has been chosen and Notified.  This Giveaway is now Closed. Congrats to Cheryl F. The Lucky Ladybug!

I was sent some packages of pens from Zebra to review.  I believe I probably have some scrapbookers like me out there reading this blog and if I do...then you know we are all about the cutie patootie!

I also know that I probably have some readers out there that are going to school and may be like I was when I was in graduate school....maybe.  When I was in my doctorate program I went out and got this cool laptop to take my notes on...I was a {Graduate} student afterall and super serious.  Turns out that although I needed my laptop for many things after the first week in my classes I realized I like to take notes the good old fashion way.  I am an old dog that did not want to learn a new trick.  I liked my pens and my highlighters.

If you looked at my notes you would find that they were...{Gasp} color coordinated.  I know ... I KNOW... my husband still rolls his eyes at the idea of not using a laptop for note taking.  This coming from the man who only uses fountain pens!  Seriously, can not tell you how hard it is to fine a good juicy pen in my house so I am thrilled to share my review with you (and YES!  The Zebra Company is going to let me send one lucky winner a package with all of the pens listed below!) So here is my review on this companies pens.

Regal Roller Rollerball - Arrow Tip  ---- My fave!  It is {juicy} and I love that in a pen.  I know that description may sound funny but the the tip glides nicely and it leaves a nice {juicy} stroke.  The package comes with four colors black, blue, red and green.

The Regal Roller Rollerball - Needle Tip - This one has a fine line to it.  The packet comes with four colors black, blue, red and green.  This worked very well and if you like a fine tip then this one is for you but I really preferred the Arrow tip.

Daisies Ballpoint Pen - I would have adored these when I was going to school because the package comes with  different colors ... and yeah ... I was one of those who liked her notes to look {pretty}.   I thought the ball points were nice but what makes them an item I would want to purchase is simply because they look {Super Cute}...I know Shallow but {True}.

The Cadoozles Mechanical Pen - the great thing about mechanical pens is that they don't need any sharpening.  The cute thing about these are simply that...they are {Cute}.  These are cute for kids and tweens...although I like the ice cream decorated ones the other ones seem like something my nephews would be into (sports theme and rock and roll theme).

If you want to purchase them you can go to just about any retail store and find them.  They are found at Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Walmart, K-Mart and many more stores.
