I’m a huge list maker, and every Sunday morning I sit down with Doug and we spend a couple of hours planning our week. Scheduling our responsibilities between our blogs and family life you can imagine the multitude of items we plan for each and every day.

Now just because you know me through my work here on Hoosier Homemade and the internet I am a little old fashion and like to hand write all my ideas and tasks with pen and paper. There is always a pen close by while I’m working and it annoys me to no end when I pick one up and start to write and idea down and the ink doesn’t flow nicely.

When the package arrived with the Faber-Castell pens to review I had to confiscate it from my husband and make him a deal, let me do my review and when I am through with it you may have the pens. Well I hate to tell him but he’s not getting these pens now that I’ve got them. I love the feel of the pens in my hand you can tell the quality and craftsmanship is top shelf and I loved how the ink flowed on the paper. So I am excited to be able to offer these in today’s giveaway.

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