Supply List

I keep seeing "Back To School" ads everywhere.
What's on your list?

Some cigar boxes for storage?
Cut-outs?

Certainly you'll need a pencil case and some scissors.
And maybe a really old book to tear up,
or doodle in.

Why would you put plain old tape on your list when you can get
washi tape?

Of course flash cards are always very handy.
Math wasn't my favorite subject in school but I love math flash cards.
Some language cards are good to have too.

Beautiful old wood rulers?

And, of course, you know you need to cover all your books like I covered mine.

The teachers aren't the only ones who can have have rubber stamps.
Ink pads in lots of colors on the list?

How about a date stamp?
Handy for homework, n'est pas?

Back-to-School is so much fun, especially when you don't actually have to go back-to-school!
And for mail artists, it is a great time to get pens and pencils and glue sticks and all kinds of stuff really cheap.

Some of my outgoing mail.
Hope everyone got them -- I found out you are supposed to put twenty cents extra
on see-thru envelopes. Who knew?

Outgoing postcards

Incoming
All nice and neat in an old wire bin I found lurking in my closet.
And, now to answer......

Hope everyone is having lots of good mail days.

Don't forget to tell me what is on your list?

  2. I just love back-to-school supplies, but not because I need them. There's just something so beautiful about fresh pencils and pristine notebooks. It also brings back memories of going off to the first day of school with new supplies and a new outfit. Sigh.
