pencil stacker eraser pretzels

well guys,
summer's officially over around here. 

but it's not because our temps are in the 70's.
or that there are leaves falling from the trees.

our weather doesn't change too often around these parts.
so we go by season's according to what's happening in life or cuz it's a holiday. 

i know, it sounds nutty. 

anywho at this time of year, summer's over cuz school started. and i am back to work M-F. blah. 

i say that cuz i didn't get a chance to do some fun blogging for a bit cuz of work and i had a brain blog infarct and was wondering when i would get over it.

then i saw these and my blogger brain was at it again.














oh and before i forget, i got some chocolate candiquik too.

and so i trimmed and glued and giggled some more. 
cuz i ended up with this:



whadd'ya think about 'em?
here i'll let you meet them in person...







ok so i know they are so completely silly.
completey un-adult like. 

but they make me completely smile.

and i'm taking that to work with me.
:)

  1. There is nothing better than to start the day with a great big smile!! I almost started to wonder if there was going to be anything to actually eat in this post.....and you did not disappoint! John is my fave....is he married? Oh, never mind if I ever met him, I'd probably bite his head off the first time I laid eyes on him. Another winner, girl! Your BBFF, Dona

    1. you're right about the big smile first thing Dona cuz that's what you gave me! but poor John, he was all thrilled when you asked if he was married but now he hid somewhere since you want to bite off his head. i told him better luck next time. :>D

  6. I love that you buy things that make you smile, so I'm not alone! I have not seen these eraser toppers and I just might have to pick some up - and what you created out of the pretzels is just plain adorable!

    3. LOL! at ours there was a whole section box filled with them. oh btw i hope your arm doesn't hurt ;)

    4. Well turns out, not a Target by me has them. I have feelers out now on my local swap page and hopefully someone in the entire city of Seattle can find them, if not, I also but a blast on Facebook, so I am hoping someone that I know in the entire country will find them.

      Oh and I emailed the company. Talk about stalker status. This is how crazy I am to find them. I would become daughter of the Millenium if I can find them here. Millenium I tell you
