Well by now we all know how obsessed I am with pens.lol So of course every chance I get to review a new and different pen I am all over it ;o) The Uglee Pen is more then just an ugly pen (it isn't really ugly just different looking). It has an ergonomic design which provides comfort and ease of use to most any person. Now I must admit I took this pen out of the package and thought...ummmm.....this pen is kind weird. With a gel type pen grip covering about 2/3 of the pen the feel was a bit hard to get use to. It really wrote well though so I continued to use it and now I don't notice the feel of the pen. It is comfortable to hold and very light weight. Designed by Dr.James Lee a lot of thought went into designing a pen that could not only help adults who may suffer from the pain of constant writing with a traditional pen. This pen has also seen many uses in children with Autism, Juvenile Arthritis and more. You can read more about this on their blog which can be found HERE. Dr.Lee wants to give one of my readers the chance to try this amazing pen for themselves. He has offered up a giveaway of one product to one of my readers. Please make sure to enter on the rafflecopter below to have the chance to win. a Rafflecopter giveaway I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
