OK...I just have to share! I broke down today and bought the 120 ct. at Michael's with my 50% off coupon. I can't believe I spent that much, but I am so excited! Now, what to do with my 24ct set that I already had?? LOL.
On the sharpening note, I used my electric sharpener from work (my boss let me bring it home) and it worked great. I did have to let it cool down after 3 or 4 pencils but that was because of its motor, not because it did anything to the pencil itself. I kind of worried that I might have worn it out......but since we don't use that many pencils at work it will be a while before anyone realizes it if I did.
