birthday month give-away - Cross Tech2 Pen/Stylus

I am not a "tech" person; I tend to find technology confusing. I am definitely, "tech challenged" and enjoy writing with pen and paper, but in this day and age, tech does tend to "rule the day". So, I have learned to use the computer - and do like my laptop quite a lot. I'm learning to use my tablet more - and like it too, but I still really like the feel of a pen in my hand, so when I use my tablet, I'm one of those people who use a stylus.

I have a number of stylus', but recently noticed Cross has several in their line of pens. Since I have loved Cross pens (especially fountain pens) over the years and found them to be of the highest quality, design and function, I asked them if they would send me one of their stylus pens to review and if another might be available for give-away. They said, "yes!" and a box arrived at my door a few days later!

So, today I'm happy to share with you my opinion of their Tech2 Pen/Stylus . . . and announce a give-away for another one as well! First, my review.

Tech2, Tender Rose Ballpoint Pen with 6mm Stylus
Manufacturer - Cross

Favorite Features -
  • Pen includes a ball-point tip and a narrow, 6mm precision stylus at the other end
  • Available in a number of colors - I'm giving away a very pretty Tender Rose, but it is also available in black, chrome, metallic blue and white - a color perfect for any graduate on your gift list or for a mom or dad for Mother's or Father's Day!
  • Very comfortable weight - important for me as since I have MS I need pens with a comfortable weight.
  • Arrives in a lovely box - great for gift-giving
Cross says; " Dual-personality pen which loves paper and mobile touchscreens. You're accustomed to the writing precision of a Cross pen, so it's only natural we'd bring that distinctive experience to a stylus. Tech2 combines both in one instrument. A smoother glide and increased accuracy will make bringing ideas to life feel effortless, whether on paper or your mobile screen."

I love the colors, weight, design and attention to detail which once again Cross clearly put into the development of the Tech2, Tender Rose Ballpoint Pen with 6mm Stylus! The stylus end makes it so much easier for me to get things done on my tablet! It makes a great gift for graduation, birthdays or just as a special treat for yourself!  As I mentioned above, not only did Cross send me a Tech2, Tender Rose Ballpoint Pen with 6mm Stylus for review, but they sent an additional one for me to give away (USA only). The give-away will be on May 22, 2015 so if you are over the age of 18 and would like to be in the drawing for the Tech2, Tender Rose Ballpoint Pen with 6mm Stylus, please comment below to let me know your favorite thing to write - for me it has to be stories for my grandsons and Bible curriculum which helps children know the Bible is for them - not just for adults!

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the 
Tech2, Tender Rose Ballpoint Pen with 6mm Stylus and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!
