grandma's Christmas Give-Away - Cross Ballpoint Pen!

 I love pens! I love to write so maybe this is why I have always loved pens! Cross makes pens which make writing a delight . . . at least for me! So, when I had the opportunity to review a few Cross pens, I was very happy to do so! The first pen is one I'm also giving away! For years the Cross Century pen has set the standard for quality ball point pens, but now they have updated them and given them a fun, new look! As Cross says, "Chic and stylishly slim, Century Colors offers the perfect balance of work and play. Fashioned after the iconic Classic Century, in pretty pearlescent finishes and the season's most sought-after shades. Whether for business or for pleasure a little flair will go a long way."

Cross Classic Century Ltd. Violet Gingham Ballpoint Pen 
By - Cross

Favorite Features -
  • perfect weight so it is comfortable for writing!
  • beautiful design - love the violet gingham!
  • it is obvious Cross has given attention to design, style, function and quality as this pen has all of these components!
The Gingham Pen will make a wonderful pen for you or to give as a gift!  As I mentioned, I'm delighted for the opportunity to give one away (USA only)! If you are over the age of 18 and would like to be included in this give-away which will be on November 14, 2012 - please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.

This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win this pen and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!

I'm also happy to let you know about a couple other Cross pens! I personally love to write with fountain pens, so when I saw the new Cross Forever Pearl Fountain Pen, well I was thrilled for the opportunity to review it! This pen is beautiful to look at and amazing to write with! It is so comfortable to hold - no stress on my hand for writing! (Which, since I have MS, this really matters to me!) Again, it is obvious Cross has given time and attention to the design, style, function and quality of this pen! As Cross says, "Reminiscent of the fluid lines of a fountain pen the Forever Pearl combines modern writing convenience with old world charm. With its pearlescent finish and decorative circles, this pen looks stunning on a desk or in the hand The metallic circle pattern is printed over an ivory metallic lacquer base and enhanced with accents of silvery engraving which adds intrigue and dimension." And they are absolutely correct! If you are looking for a unique and special gift which could be used every day, definitely take a look at the Cross Forever Pearl Fountain Pen!

They sent me one additional pen for review, the Cross Affinity Rollerball PenCross does not disappoint with this beautiful pen! It writes so smoothly and comfortably! As they say, "A new generation of Cross pens - the first we've created in brilliant crystalline resin. Wrapped in gloss and Hollywood glamour, Affinity masters the mix of vintage looks and lightweight, modern feel. Dashing, distinctive and brilliantly bold! The Affinity makes a wonderful and thoughtful gift!
