It's been quite a few years since I've needed to do any genuine back-to-school shopping, but I absolutely love seeing what new papers, pens and pencils they come out with each fall, so this is the season I usually buy my stash of office supplies for the year ahead. This week, I was in Walmart browsing the school supplies when I came across some great "Alice in Wonderland" folders. This design was my favorite because it has both the teacup design as well as the subtle teapots in the background.
I remembered how much my two oldest nieces loved the Johnny Depp "Alice" movie when it came out, so I bought a few extra packs of folders to share with them since all three of these packages feature a tea-themed folder as one of the two in the pack.
And it's not tea-themed, but I just had to show you the front and back of this damask design folder. Is that not just gorgeous? I don't know what student this was designed for, but I immediately went home and put this lovely folder to good use!
I also was thrilled to find these vinyl zip-top pouches for $1. I'd been thinking of ordering some from a quilting supply catalog to hold the quilt pieces I will sew this fall, but theirs were $14 for a set of four, plus shipping. This $2 worth of pouches will do the trick just fine (and I had to share because so many of you are also quilters)! Do any of you buy school supplies for yourselves? If so, please tell me where you've found cute ones this year!
