WIN IT! Bic Mark.It Permanent Markers

Now that Halloween is over it’s time for me to start obsessing about Christmas. Sure I realize Thanksgiving is in there somewhere, but who decorates and gets super crafty for Thanksgiving? Plus there are all those presents with Christmas! That being the case I thought I would start the giving early. Every Wednesday until Christmas we are going to be giving away something fun! We have stacks of books, jewelry and craft supplies with your name written all over it! Let’s start with a craft supply give away!

When you think of Bic ballpoint pens might come to mind. When the package of Bic Mark.It Permanent Markers arrived at my house my husband saw the box and thought he had hit the razor jack pot. However, Bic is dipping their toes into the craft market and boy oh boy am I glad they did. A giant box of 36 colorful markers is like the adult version of a new box of crayons – I got equally excited I gotta tell ya. Check out the Bic Blog and Facebook Page to see some of the crafty ideas. The markers will work on glass, metal, plastic, photos, foils and coated paper. Sorry no cloth. There are so many gorgeous lush colors like lime green, fuchsia and teal.

So now the fun free stuff! I have 3 packs of the colorful markers to giveaway! All you have to do is leave me a comment and let me know what you would use these markers for. Are you an avid scrap booker? Love to do art journaling? Think you might adorn a vase or two? You have until next Wednesday to let me know.

P.S. If you have been reading this long I’ll let you in on a little secret… to kick things off in the contest department we are doing two give aways this week! Tune in tomorrow to check it out.

    Oh – that's a dangerous question! What wouldn't I use them for? I think I\d start out with the posters I have to make for the book drive in December, then work my way to the lily-white pizza box from last night, then right around to a birthday card for my best friend … hm ,,,

    Thanks for the giveaway! πŸ˜€

    I am drooling just looking at the picture of these permanent markers! 1) I would keep them away from my husband because he thinks you can use a permanent marker on your 10 month old's head to make that Charlie Brown hair mar. 2)a project with my daughter Alex- having her decorate clear glass ornament balls and being able to write special messages on them for gifts (special messages with

  12. Last_Hired_Loser

    I'm a librarian, and I love doing new craft projects with the kids. I've been collecting jars, so I'd love for the kids to use the markers to decorate the jars. We'd make paper flowers to put in the decorated jars, and they could give them away for the holidays.
    We have no budget, so I could really use these markers!

  13. Misty Posey

    Let's see, it would probably be easier to tell you what I don't use them on πŸ™‚ haha I use these to draw TATS on my youngest child's back. After a day or two it finally washes off. Almost every birthday party of my girls, I use something for everyone to sign for my girls. My favorite is a pillow case. If you iron it good before washing, the colors last a little longer. I am a

    *mixed media artwork

  17. The Art of Megan * HomeGrown Fashion

    I like coloring the inside of bottle caps with permanent markers before I fill them with an image and resin, or glitter and resin. I also love permanent markers on polymer clay for sharp detail, and decorating boxes for craft storage always is more fun when you have a bigger selection of colors!

  21. The Gentleman in the Radiator

    I just discovered this site moments ago, and I have to say I'm already a fan!

    I'm a fine art photography student, and as soon as I saw that these could be used on photo paper, I became really excited at the idea of hand-coloring vintage photos.

  22. CraftyHope

    I love markers for card making and colouring in doodled designs I think might be scan-worthy, for use in my jewelry. Also, for colouring homemade shrinky-dinks from recycled plastic! I also burn a lot of mixed cds for my vehicle, and use coloured permanent markers to decorate the label side. Sooo many uses for these babies!

  30. Lisa Cash

  31. Rhea

    Whoa! I just found you by looking for cha cha bracelets online.. who would have figured! Okay- I was going to return a 50 cent vintage necklace purchase made online because of a chip in the purple bead. SOOOOOO, I would fix that bead and all the other jewelry I inherited so it didn't look junky. (Just for starters) Thx for this chance –

  32. Ms Polka Dot

    My hubby and I make little "I love you" cards for each other about once a week, free handing super mario or our dogs. I would totally use the markers for that.

  33. Sunspot

    I have a couple of wood blanks from the craft store (you know, those unpainted pieces)that I have not used. I want to try drawing all over those and then varnishing on top . . don't know if it will work and of course since you said not to use them on cloth . . . I'm wondering why . . . .

  36. Anonymous

  38. Michelle Lee Ann

    What an awesome offer! I work with high needs preschoolers and our preschool is like a recycling factory. We have a whole closet just for our recyclables to be used for art projects. I particuarily want to try out's awesome idea to turn milk cartons and toilet paper tubes into ball catchers, and we need permanent markers to decorate the cartons. I have 3 or 4

  39. Kelly Crowl

    I don't usually comment on your blog…just an avid reader, but who wouldn't LOVE to win that set of markers? I think I would use them mostly on cards or scrapbooking projects, but hey, you never know what might happen from there! Thanks!

  40. Tanya

    I would use these to draw on fabric or tshirts. I have been using sharpies for awhile and the colored markers would be awesome! I would also see if they would fit in the pazzles machine (the cricut that doesnt need cartridges). I have been having a ball with that latley too.

  41. Tanya

    Opps you said no cloth, so I would use it on glass! Or heck, anything else. I know, making some mexican day of the dead shrines!!! I just saw that clip online again…it was awesome!

  42. Michele

    I like to decorate paper bags to use as gift bags. I decoupage some cool graphics onto the bag and then use markers, stamps, glitter, or anything else to complete the project.

  43. ELLIE

    what a terrific give away – I would so use the bic markers for my mandalas –I love the vivid colors–I would also use them for special lettering on my inspirational posters…and painting my dia de las muertas skulls – so many uses so little time!!!
    I have used them in my art journals – I so love it all – the colors keep the creativity going!!

  44. Nicole Duncan

    I love markers!!! I would totally use them to add a little art to my personal notes to my customers. I love to do colorful old school tattoo designs (I dabbled in tattooing back in the day)

    I design my own fabric on canvas with permanent markers. I have never grown too old to color. Having major spine reconstruction next week and am taking my canvas and markers with me to design away. That's about all I'll be able to do, LOL. Take pity on this poor, old lady and send me a set!!I've told everyone to bring bouquets of markers rather than flowers to the hospital.

  47. Maddy*Moo

    WOW those pens are just YUMMY! I have some shrinking plastic and can't wait to make some charms and keyrings from it, these pens would colour them so brightly, I'll be making funky pieces non stop! I can see my dad stealing them like I steal his stamps as he has just ordered a ton of cards and papers, he finds endless ideas out of everything lol. I'll never let him take them! They&#39

  48. Saguaro Chick

    I live for markers! All those luscious colors, yummy! Those babies would be put to good use in all my memory albums! I often make pages and them put them aside, waiting for the perfect words to hit me, then grab a matching marker when the moment hits! Alas, many are old and drying out. Had to throw four away the other day….it pained me greatly! This set would be displayed in my pretty jar
