Back to School Pencil Holder

It's that time of year where moms all over the United States are having those mixed emotions of feelings of the kids going back to school; getting them out of the house for some peace and quiet or missing them all day long. Along with this comes the tremendous guilt of feeling like a bad mom because you want the peace, savor the peace, and it gives you more uninterrupted time for the Lord, household business and of course, getting your stamp on! Or counting the hours until your little darlings get home. I'm a combination of both, as most of us are. We're all looking forward to getting back into a predictable routine.

This month for my two Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps blog posts, I decided to go back in time and showcase older digital stamps that I LOVE. Today will be a "Back to School" digi stamp using Pencil Holder (it's less than a dollar!) and on August 25, I'll be showing you my favorite food digital stamp.

And, just as a reminder to you, every day a design team member posts a totally inspirational card or project showcasing Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps at the Blog. You never know what you're going to see daily because we can use whatever stamp set we like, so it's always a surprise! Please visit us daily at the Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps Blog and definitely come back to visit me on August 25 for my next post. I can guarantee you'll be cooking. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow to see who will bless you.

Thank you for stopping by to see me today and God bless you!
