Back To School With Dezign With A Z Wall Decals *Giveaway*

Written by lyricsmama on August 22, 2011 – 9:34 PM -

If your household is anything like mine, back to school means back to running
around crazy to different events, games and school functions.

It’s sometimes hard to keep track of just about everything! I have calendars around the house, one on my phone, and on my computer. My oldest daughter is starting to write things down for herself now as well, with her going back to school I figured she’d need something to keep herself a little more organzied (and stay away from my stuff!).

Dezign With A Z has some pretty cool wall decals that can help my daughter jot down things on the fly right on her own walls with their Black Chalkboard and Whiteboard wall decals.These decals are super cool and easy to put up on the wall, just write on them with chalk or dry erase markers and then erase them to use them again and again and again, the best thing is they’re removable and reusable so if my daughter decides to move around her room, she can place these wherever she needs them.

For my youngest daughter, they’re equally fun as she can draw pictures all over them time and time again.

For a busy mom on the go, I also have a set on my pantry doors in my kitchen

for when I need to jot down grocery lists for those back to school lunches.

You can check out the entire line of Black Chalkboard and Whiteboard decals by visiting the reusable chalkboard and whiteboard section of Dezign With A Z. These are perfect for children’s bedrooms, offices, kitchens and more!

Dezign With A Z has various different Black Chalk Board and Whiteboard decalsavailable in different shapes and sizes, we opted for the Mix n’ Match pack that comes in a set of 4 dots 2 black chalk boards and 2 whiteboards. Easy to install and like I said removable and reusable, no paint coming off of that wall.

Smencil’s… Keeping You Hungry & Saving Trees Once Pencil At A Time

Written by lyricsmama on August 14, 2011 – 9:54 AM -

On just about any elementary school supply list you’ll see the same thing. A package of #2 pencils, that’s right, boring old pencils… But your pencils don’t have to be boring anymore thanks to the Smencils!

Smencils makes all kinds of yummy scented pencils as well as pens and colored pencils all made from recycled materials and biodegradable plastics.

I remember back in the day, the scented markers we used to have, that smelled, well OK but after a while you’d just get a headache sniffing those things. Fear not parents, Smencils products aren’t nearly as bad as the scented products we remember, in fact, they smell quite good!

My daughters will be heading back to school with various scents of Smencils and Colored Smencils and I know I’ll have to make sure each and every one has a label on them because these are going to be some cool and sought after supplies. The Smencils are not only cool for their scents (bubble gum, cinnamon, tropical blast, grape, cotton candy, very berry, black cherry, orange, watermelon and root beer) but also for their design. Each Smencil is made by wrapping recycled newspaper tightly around the graphite or colored core, check out what the tip looks like below.

After the Smencil has been wrapped they are then soaked in a gourmet liquid scent, dried and then the Smencil logo and eraser are attached. Individual Smencils can be found inside of a corn based biodegradable freshness tube to keep that scent fresh and locked in, so when you get it, it smells just as good as when it was first made.

So can you use Smencils at school? OF COURSE! Smencils are also #2 pencils so you can currently add them to your back to school shopping list and surprise your kiddos with something a little cooler than a normal #2 pencil.

For older kids, or us adults we get a chance to get in on the fun too with the Smens! These are also made with biodegradable plastic and made about the same way as the Smencils are including the way they’re packaged. Smens come in 10 scents as well which include: Pink Lemonade, Red Licorice, Banana Fo Fana, Ninja Berry, Aloha, Carmel Corn, Black Licorice, Creamsicle, Passion Fruit and my favorite Mocha! Believe me, the Smens smell just as amazing as the Smencils, sometimes they help out a little with my diet as well, a sniff here and there and it helps me take care of a craving, at least for a little while. That’s me, for others it could just make you a little more hungry so beware!!!

Smencils, Smens and Colored Smencils work just as well as any other supply with the added bonus of a cool look and yummy smell! All Smencil’s products also come with a 2 year guarantee of ‘smell’. It will be interesting to see just how long and vibrant the smell actually stays on the products.

You can purchase Smencil’s products to put into your kiddos backpacks or to find out more information by visiting their website smencils.com.
