My New BFF

At the end of every summer, a few of us teachers get together to have Game Night! We play board games, we eat dinner, we laugh, and have fun! :-)

So you can imagine my excitement when THIS (my new BFF)

showed up on my doorstep the DAY OF Game Night!!! Perfect! Who better to try out the Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener than a bunch of teachers!!!

We tried it out. We loved it. They all wanted me to give it away as the prize for winning Game Night, but I said no way Jose.  

Look at how sharp those pencils are!!!

Here they are in action! Perfectly sharpened and ready to write!!!

Here are some of the things my wonderful teacher buddies said...

Kerry said: "You could stab an eye out with those pencils!!!"

Amanda said: "I didn't even hear you sharpen it." (And she was sitting RIGHT NEXT TO ME!!!)

Priscilla said: "That could kill someone!"

and Summer said: "Hey look- you can sharpen the pencils one handed. Like at a rodeo!" 

I can't wait to find the PERFECT spot for my new BFF in my classroom!!! This is going to save me a lot of headaches, crying, and screaming that I previously went through every single morning in the lounge with the terrible pencil sharpener (my arch nemesis) (that had to be replaced 12 times and never really sharpened anything!!! They should call it the pencil breaker/headache giver!). 

Now, head on over and check out the Quietest Classroom Pencil Sharpener Ever out for yourself! :-)

And just to ensure you have a wonderful Sunday...I give you... the Corgi Cam!!! (One of my parents told me about this the other day and it is cuteness all over the place!) :-) 

Have a great day! 


  1. Oh I love game night! The chalkboard sign is too cute! That pencil sharpener is a gem!

  2. You know, I have this classroom friendly pencil sharpener, and I'm not in love with it like everyone else is. I find that it sharpens, and then the lead falls right out. Needless to say, I am either going to continue looking for the perfect sharpener, or I'm going to start lobbying for better quality pencils to be made!

  3. Game Night?! What an awesome idea! I love board games. I might try to start this tradition...

  4. I love my sharpener, too!!! Game night sounds fun:)

  5. I also think your Game Night sounds like so much fun! I wish we had a tradition like that. :)


  6. I just got my pencil sharpener and I do love it. I noticed that Melissa above, said it wasn't her favorite because the lead still falls right out. . . I don't think that's the pencil sharpener's fault. I think they are making crappy pencils these days. That's just my opinion. But I thought you might want to hear it! ha ha!

  7. I love my sharpener too, but mine's not THAT quiet. Am I using it wrong? Also, I'm in love with the corgi cam. Seriously, I may need to add that to my school webpage so I can make my students watch corgis every time we update homework. :)
