OK, so obviously, I’m not in elementary school. Nor do I have a child who will be attending school this year – we’re still two years out from that momentous day. BUT…I still, and will likely always, love school supplies. I was THAT kid who was giddy about going back to school each year, and loved going to buy school supplies. (Who still cherishes the memory of their first Trapper Keeper?) But then I came to the end of college and there was no need to buy school supplies at the end of August each year.
A couple weeks ago, I realized I actually do need some “school supplies” for my studio. Pencils, pens, a ruler, printer paper. While at the office supply store, I spotted some plain wooden pencils, and immediately started thinking of all of the geometric designs I could add with my wood burning tool.
It was so simple and fast to create a few one-of-a-kind, modern pencils for my desktop. I won’t lie, I’m so happy with how they turned out, I kind of don’t want to actually use them. They’re too cool for school. (Couldn’t stop myself.) Make them for your kiddos or make them for yourself, these lovelies will definitely stand out in a sea of yellow #2 pencils.
