I fell in love with this site last year when Martha Stewart Living endorsed the Hi-Tec C pens. Is it not just the most adorable thing you ever saw?
So, I emailed Kimberly to ask if she would donate some pens for a giveaway on Same Old Shannon, and I was beyond thrilled when she said yes. Seriously, right after I got the email from Kimberly, I wrote the following Facebook status in a haze of excitement:
So, the giveaway:
One lucky winner will receive 6 Hi-Tec C pens from Tokyo Pen Shop! Here's an image of the Hi-Tec C collection from the website:
The specific colors the winner will receive are:
- sapphire blue
- pompadour blue
- wine red
The winner will receive pens with 0.5-mm tips, although the site offers 0.3-mm and 0.4-mm tips as well.
Here's how you enter:
Leave a comment here with an answer to the following question:
You've just gone back to school with a pencil case full of Hi-Tec C pens! Your teacher asks you to write an essay on what you did over the summer. What do you write? (For blog comment purposes, this can be a 1-3 sentence summary, not a 5-paragraph essay.)
But wait! There's more!
If you "like" Tokyo Pen Shop's Facebook page, come back here and tell me in a separate comment for an extra chance to win. (The comment can be, "I liked Tokyo Pen Shop on Facebook.")
This contest is open until Sunday, August 28 until 11:59 CST. After that I will go to random.org and have it generate a number, and the person who left that comment number will win! I'll announce the results Monday, August 29 and ask the winner to send me an email with his or her address, which I will pass onto Tokyo Pen Shop.
But that's not all!
Even if you don't win, you can still get a 15% discount on all purchases at Tokyo Pen Shop by entering code "SHANNON" at checkout. The discount is valid until October 1, and shipping is always free on orders of $25 or more shipped within the United States.
Okay, go enter the giveaway! Good luck! And thanks a whole heaping lot to Tokyo Pen Shop, not only for giving away free pens, but for making my entire month as well!
