Eco Stationary from Stubby Pencil Studio

by Tiffany in Crafts

I found a new eco company that I love a few weeks back. In fact I think it only took me 5.0 seconds toStubby Pencil Studio Stuff click the buy now button after I landed my on Stubby Pencil Studio. Not only do their products rock..the prices rock even harder.

One of my favorite product offerings are the 100% recycled greeting cards and invitations called Color ‘n Kids™. Not only are they eco friendly they allow for kids to call upon their inner artist as they can color the cards and personalize them. I HATE sending cards but sometimes you just have to. Now when my relatives send the kids some gifts we have some cards on hand to color and send. And what does Stubby Pencil Studio have for your kids to color with? How about their eco friendly colored pencils or their soy crayons? We have both and they are much better for artwork than icky petroleum based products that use unsustainable materials.

I am so energized by companies that do their part to make kid friendly products that are earth friendly too. The owner Kate Rosenthal, who is super nice BTW, started the company after she realized there was a need for eco-friendly, do-it-yourself stationery products for young children. I am glad she did see the need, her store is awesome.

  • Dr.Daisy

    What awesome products! I know my kiddos would love them:)

  • that girl

    I want to win! Love the name Stubby Pencil Studio! Too cute.

  • Kim

    Would love new art supplies

  • Jillian

    I would love to see products like these sold in mainstreme stores…there really is a big need for them.

  • Melynda

    I have had it pounded into me since I was a little kid that you always send a thank you card when you get a gift. Funny, because the people that were so adamant about it–my dad and his wife–never sent me a thank you note. Oh well, I still send them; can’t help it.

  • Casie

    How cool! Would love this for little ones.

  • Stretch Mark Mama

    My kids love crafty stuff! And like you, I too hate sending cards. But it must be done.

  • My little artists would love these :)

  • Amanda

    wow! i didn’t even realize that there was sucha thing…. just the little things i don’t even think about looking for in an ‘organic’ type of form…. my husband tends to like the tried and true methods so i would love to see if he noticed a difference using these with the baby!!

  • That is such a cute little art set.

  • oh wow, i would love to win this! my kids are in a heavy card making phase right now, since we recently moved FAR from all family and friends, so this would definitely be put to good use :)

  • I recently bought a few things from there for my 5 year-old’s birthday. Her favorite thing is the watermelon scented smencil. We would love to get some more and try out the cards too when finances permit.

  • Michelle

    My kids would love some extra art supplies, and I love that they are earth friendly!

    I admit, despite the ecological consequences, I am still a big fan of hand-written correspondence. I definitely need to give that site a peek.

  • Erica

    WOW, that sounds great. I’ll definitely have to try these, that is if I don’t win. My daughter has Autism, but loves to color. This would be a great way for me to let her connect to others as she doesn’t do it as well in person!!!

  • melinda s

    My 4 year old would love art supplies…..he did take art classes before going to school and loved it….so these would be a great start to our art collection of supplies.

  • Very nice!

  • courtney

    thanks for the chance!

  • This would be perfect for my art loving niece. I am most excited about the smencils. I used to love smelling the smelly markers. You would always end up with a multi-colored nose afterwards but it was a small price to pay for the lovely smells.

  • tessa

  • Julie

    Love it ! My son loves to do art projects. I am gathering a basket of new “goodies” to help entertain him when my second one comes along in a few weeks. I was told by a friend it helps to have something “new” to keep the older one busy while nursing the new baby. Any tips ???

  • Karen R

    These would be great for Rylee. She’s not writing yet but grandparents would get her artwork. :)

    I encourage you to embrace cards, not just when you have to. We are loosing the art of letter writing in our nation, and it is such a personal and tangible gift to get someone’s hand written gift of words.

    Ok, this is just plain AWESOME. We are a crafty kind of family, first of all. I have my own scraproom. My daughter is heavily into art (she’s 12, and already in advanced art at her middle school) so I’d probably put this away for her for her birthday coming up. She’d love it! I also saved the site for some shopping for the holidays, green products = me happy!! Thanks so mcuh!

    I want to win these for my daughter. We recently put her on a gluten and casein free diet (to help with her Autistic symptoms) and I had to take away her play-doh, one of her favorite toys. I would love to present her with a safe, non-toxic (and hopefully gluten-free) alternative. Great give-away, thanks!
