When you see adds for school supplies this time of year, do you get a hankering to stock up on them even though you don't have any school-age kids or you're not heading back to those ivory towers yourself? Is so, we are on the same notebook page, my friend. I LOVE school supplies--probably because I LOVE school, but be that as it may, how many composition notebooks does one woman need? Or pencils, for that matter. In this case, enough to make Rachel's color block pencils. They couldn't be easier to make. Pencils, tape, a little craft paint and brush and you're good to go. Head over to The Crafted Life to see the entire tutorial.
