Wow, thank you for that rebate link! Makes me feel a little better about the money spent 2 days ago, ugh! And you know I wanna go back and buy some more!
Many thanks to all of you who have been posting answers and helpful links on this thread! I bought 60 pencils, 48 of which were mfg'd in Mexico. Printed some digital stamps out on Bristol Smooth 100 lb pen/ink paper (20 sheets of paper for $5 something, not a bad deal), and have been coloring with my new pencils and baby oil all evening! AWESOME!!!!! Colors are blending super nice, and I just love the effects! Again, thank you all who help us newbies start off in the right direction! It's going to be a fun winter! Let it snow!!!!
