While looking over the entries for our Rhodia Leather Pencil Case/Pencils giveaway, (you can still enter till Midnight tonight EST.) I found this delightful comment by a woman named Ginigin from the Inklings blog:
“I’d love a chance to try Rhodia pencils (oh, that black wood!!) and the pencil case is beautiful and practical. My fondest pencil memory is from elementary school. I would get bored in school and used my pocket knife to first shave off the paint and then carve the wood of the pencil into a totem pole. Back then we were allowed to carry a pocket knife, though I think I was the only girl to do so.”
Any wood carvers out there? The thought of a black/orange pencil carving sounds so very dramatic!
