Welcome to my blog-I hope you enjoy!


I was at Home Depot the other day standing at the check out and saw these carpenter pencils. They are flat so they will not roll when put down. I thought they would be easy and fun to collage and add a message for a friend or loved one. So I bought a dozen-plus they are only 19 cents so very cost affective also. I made up a dozen and then went back for a dozen more.
I stamp on some and printed some saying to add to the pencils. So, how I have a bunch for the our Holiday House to sale and a few to give for gifts. They are just perfect for tying on a package or to fit in a someones stocking.


  1. Love this idea. Great for stocking stuffers. Guess what my family will be getting. Thanks for sharing

  2. These pencils are wonderful Barbara and I love this idea. I am going to put it to use. Since I work in construction these would make fun gifts for sure.
