Crayola...You never cease to amaze me!

I am sure many of you are like me...if you haven't started shopping for the school year have found yourself wondering through those school supply isles, eyeing everything, making mental notes of prices (so you know when things go on sale), and making wishlists.

There are many things I LOVE when it comes to school supplies: new organizational items, new sharpies, new pencils, new...well everything. But one thing that I adore any time of the year would be a fresh, brand-spankin' new, sharp, not touched by students or my daughter box of Crayola Crayons! I LOVE THEM! I LOVE to color! I kid you not, it is one of the best de-stressors for me! Seriously.

I was intrigued when I saw a ton of 8ct. boxes of Crayola Crayons with different names. As I got closer I seriously became giddy and had to show major self-restraint. You can MAKE YOUR OWN BOX of crayons! How awesome is that!?!?!?

First you grab your box (that you can color yourself, whoohoo!)

Then you can choose from all of these fun 8ct. boxes of crayons, I LOVE the names, and my organizational side is thrilled with the grouping of them!

So here are a few pics of my coloring I did on the airplane ride to California...I told you I use it to destress.

As you are gearing up for a new school year...what makes you "giddy"???

I love colorful pens and brand new notebooks. Post-Its are a must, too- in pretty colors!

I would have loved the crayon packs, too!
