Katydid's Favorite: Stubby Pencil Studio {Giveaway}

As a former art teacher, I'm not embarrassed to admit that I swoon over art supplies. Especially ones that are cute and eco-friendly. While I don't dislike big brands like Crayola, smaller companies like Stubby Pencil Studio appeal to my independent leanings. I love their tagline, "eco-products for creative kids."
Stubby Pencil Studio has such a great and fun selection of art materials, including Beeswax Crayons ($14.95)
the coolest, most stylish sketchbooks ($4.50-$10.95) I've seen
and Smencils ($5.95-$14.00)! Scented pencils made from recycled newspaper! They even have Holiday Smencils, scented in Cinnamon, Sugar Plum, Candy Cane, Gingerbread & Sugar Cookie
and Snifty pens ($2.00), also in holiday scents like peppermint and gingerbread. I see stocking stuffer potential here.
Beyond art supplies, Stubby Pencil Studio has toys and other cool stuff. I have my eye on the Totem Christmas Tree ($55.95), made from recycled paper
That would be so cool as a Christmas decoration!

Stubby Pencil Studio is very generously offering one K&K reader...
What an awesome prize! Perfect for the little artist on your gift list. It includes the following:
  • Box of 8 Washable Markers
  • Ecojot 6x9 sketchbook (choice of design)
  • Set of 5 Holiday Smencils
  • Box of 12 eco friendly pencils
  • Snifty Pens Holiday set - gingerbread and candycane
  • Jumbo Trimax Color Pencils
  • Color 'n Kids Frosty Friends cards
  • Set of 12 Beeswax crayons
  • KUM pencil sharpener
  • Picky Penguin wooden toy
  • Packaged in a Red Reusable felt tote
