Ergonomic Pen + Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I feel like I am constantly writing! It does cause pain as well. I used to think I had arthritis, but my doctor assured me I'm too young for that. In to my life comes this ergonomic pen

I have a callous on one of my fingers where the writing utensil always has rested. I've probably been holding my pen and pencil wrong my whole life! Why didn't anyone tell me? Once in awhile I think I grip my pen too tight as well. My hands get sore so much I have to put down the pen and shake my hands around, loosen my phalanges. Since I've been using this comfy pen, I haven't noticed that pain at all.

I gave one to a friend of mine and she shared some things I didn't even think of. She's one to roll her writing utensil back and forth between her hands. She said that the UGLEE Pen was a perfect little massage for her hands. She said the grip took care of all the little pressure points in her fingers and palms.

I think this is the perfect pen for anyone who spends a lot of time writing. All my administrative you go!

Just Keep Chewing, Just Keep Chewing + Giveaway

My children just love creating and making things. They jumped at the chance to make their own chewing chewing gum!

We pulled out all the ingredients and went over what each one was. Each child had their job assigned to them.

Melt the gum base.

Warm the corn syrup and mix with melted gum base.

Make a mountain out of the powdered sugar.

Mix and knead and roll like bread dough.

Mix in the flavor

It's a messy job, but someone had to do it!

We made a big cherry gum and a little peppermint gum.
