If you need to buy some pencils, check out these bulk buys from Amazon. I got mine from Dollar Tree. 16 pencils for only $1! What a great buy.
According to pencils.com, the pencil came into popular use with a large graphite deposit found in 1564 in England. I have personally been using pencils since forever. And when it comes to computer or pencil, I prefer the good old-fashioned tool to write with. I’m very visual and I like to see projects that I can hold onto.
