I l-u-v school supplies.
I knew I'd made the right choice in a husband when his mother gave us our own boxes of colored pens one year for Christmas. When I spy a gigantic pack of Sharpie markers in a store, all color coordinated and such, my heart beats a little faster. I buy Lucy a new pair of scissors every year for school, not because she wore her last pair out, but simply because I'm a sucker for school supplies. Organizing my "office", which is in my kitchen (where else should a professional homemaker's office be, I ask you?), is one of my favorite things to do. I love to line up my pens and straighten my cardstock and sort my bills-- A LOT. I do know this behavior is probably something they could make a TLC show about, but I digress.
Last week, Lucy's teacher sent home a note about the kids needing a pencil bag that could snap in to a binder. I dutifully searched the three Targets in my vicinity and came up empty. Apparently, once school starts, the stores around here reduce their pencil pouch stock dramatically. SO, I decided to make my own pencil pouch! It ended up being so easy and the perfect project for this Denyse Schmidt decor weight fabric I've had for a while.
