Back to School

It's back to school for me tomorrow morning.  The first day for students is next Thursday.  This summer has gone too fast!  I made this cute pencil vase yesterday out of pencils and these flower pens today.  Since I teach mostly teen age boys, I won't have to worry about them taking my pens!

I FINALLY found my classroom keys today after looking for them 2 days.  They were still in my end of year folder.  *sigh*  Seems like I remember thinking that would be a good place to leave them.  However, in my searching, I found my pedometer!  I thought I had lost it a couple of years ago at school.  But no, it was in the kitchen in my pencil jar!  Go figure....


  1. That pencil vase is cool! I saw the picture and thought, "WOW, even I could do that!" (I am not too crafty!! :-)

    Love the recovered kitchen chairs! (I was a bit behind on my reading.)

  2. The pencil vase is fun but those flower pens are just beautiful. What a cheerful thing to grab one of those when you need to write something at school. It will always remind to smile.

    I hope school is not as hectic this year so you can stay in contact over the school year. I really miss my friend Betty when she is xWilma :-)

    Hugs from Holland ~

  3. Hi Susan,
    I hope you have a great beginning to the school year. I'm missing the classroom just a wee bit this year. Love your pencil vase and the cute flower pens. Bet those boys do grab one of them!

  4. Hi Susan,
    It's me again. I found some cross-stitch thread at the auction today-all colors. It was free. I took it because I knew you cross-stitched. Do you want to me sent it to you? It's all organized in baggies according to color. There is a whole box of it. Just let me know. Jane
