Cute Branch and Twig Pencils - styled X3

You know those people you meet that just have oodles of talent and taste? You know, the ones you want to be when you grow up… Well Stacy from Not Just A Housewife is one of those people. Girl’s got decorating game!

This month Stacy invited me to join in a fun little series she hosts called Styled X 3, where she sends two bloggers an identical product she bought for her own house, and we all style it to our own homes and taste! styledx3-banner

Stacy sent me these really cute branch & twig graphite pencils (you can find it here on Amazom *affiliate link*). Joining in the fun is our awesome mutual blog friend Abby from Just a Girl and Her Blog.

Aren’t these little buggers cute? They don’t even need a makeover, they are adorable as they are… and yet. What can I say, sometimes it’s almost as if the DIY materials in my house just have a mind of their own.

Well, just watch this little animated gif and see what I mean. 😀 See if you can spot the one little twig pencil that tried to run away.


Yep, the next thing I know, my pencils have chic little painted bums. Ah, I love anything paint dipped!

I’m keeping these bad boys on my bedside table for when I’m in the mood to whip out my sketch book and draw. I really should invest in a desk…but I’m a sucker for lazy bed lounging and do the bulk of my hobbies from my bed (confessions of a lazy doer).

I loved drawing as a kid, and still do! Although, I admit I spend more time drawing room renderings these days than anything. Both hobbies I love!

Honestly I’m not sure how I’m suppose to sharpen these, but I guess my whittling knife will do. Should I even be using these cute little pencils up? Ah, it’s worth using, they make me feel like I’m I’m a wood nymph using a magical writing tool whose drawings take on a life of their own. In case you’re wondering, yes my other hobby was reading and writing…and yes, I might have had (and still do have) an overactive imagination. Hee hee!

      Thank you Stacy! That is a huge compliment, and means a lot to me. :) Thanks for the pencils, I had a ton of fun with it…and now I’m struggling to keep them since all three of my girls like them too, and they are starting to disappear. lol!

    These pencils are super adorable, Ursula! But what really caught my eye was the animated GIF you created of the whole process. Can I ask you how you did that? Is there a special program or website you use to achieve the effect? Was it hard? Did you use your camera phone? Would love any how-to’s you can provide! Thanks!

    I love the “dipped” look! Such a cute way to update these cute pencils. It was fun doing this challenge with you, Ursula! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
