Happy National Crafts Month!

It's time to get our creative juices flowing and celebrate National Crafts Month! Woo! We've got a great lineup of inspiration and craft tutorials just for you guys. We found some great bloggers to team up with to give you an extra boost of inspiration for all your crafting needs -- Stay tuned!

But in the meantime, every couple of days, we'll be featuring some of our top craft products to get you started on your own projects at home!

The Art Mechanical Pencil isn't quite something you'll find in your local office supply store. These erasable pencils use exclusive rectangular-shaped lead, which comes in handy in more ways than one.

Here's a close-up of the lead. As an artist, you're able to control the thickness of the lines you create. A narrow angle creates thinner line, while the use of a wider angle creates thicker lines. We found that the wider angle was really useful for shading (and a lot quicker too, compared to a dull point on a drawing pencil), and using a narrow line is awesome for defining outlines. This useful tool comes with either black, red, yellow, green and blue mechanical lead. Don't forget, you can collect all of the colors with our refills!

Do you have a one-of-a-kind creation that you'd like to show on's blog? E-mail now to get your art shown!

Happy crafting! :D
