This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Pencil Holder - BoBunny Pop Quiz

Hello Everyone

Today is voter's day here in South Africa and so I have had another chance to catch up with some scrapping and creating, Joe's homework in between, voting and just enjoying an autumn day at home.

After I created the Teachers Gift recently for a BoBunny DT project, my son was saying that he really wanted me to make something for him too.  So I decided to make a pencil holder, as his was a bit small for all his pencils and crayons. So I also used Pop Quiz.

Since this is going to be a very functional and used pencil holder, for a 6 year old, I kept it simple, with not too many embelishments, as these would make it difficult for him to handle.

I found this at our local hardware store, and was perfect for this pencil holder, as it has different heights.

 At least now, all his pencils and crayons, glue, scissors and ruler can all be found in one place and his Mother won't have to pull out her hair every time Joe has to do his homework!!!!! ;-)))

Joe is really pleased with his new pencil holder and has already started using it! So that surely makes me happy too! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super Wednesday.
