My favorite pencil sharpener is back...and this time she's PINK!!

Good Morning, Bits and Bobbers!! Kerri here...

As most of you know, I am in love with my Classroom Friendly Pencil Sharpener. So obsessed with it, in fact, that it has been kidnapped not one, but two times, by the *cough cough* IMMATURE male teachers at my school! I kid you not.
The first time, I was sent ransom notes all week long, until they finally returned it to me! The second time was much more sinister, and this is how I found her at our monthly luncheon...
That, my friends, is my beloved pencil sharpener encased in Jello, ALA the best OFFICE prank ever. (Why did I have to be Dwight in this scenario??) I am happy to report that after she was all washed off and cleaned up, she STILL works like a CHAMP!! That is how amazing she is!!

Here are some photos of my lovely first grade models demonstrating how easy she is to use...


Step one: pinch the top, pull out, and put the pencil in...

Pinching action...

Turn the handle, easy peasy...

TADA!! SUPER sharp pencil!!
Troy from Classroon Friendly Supplies contacted me and offered to let one of our readers win one of his fabulous pencil sharpeners, because...wait for it...he made one in PINK!!! Hallelulah!!
AND....he is donating $1 from each sale to Cancer charities because September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! How cool is that??

Oh man, this pink one is calling my name! Of course, if pink doesn't float your boat, he still has red, black, blue, or green for your to choose from ...
Enter below by Rafflecopter, and as usual, Lindsay and I will throw in the product of your choice to the lucky winner. YAY!!


a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway will be ending on Tuesday at Midnight so don't delay, friends! Get entering!
XOXO Kerri B

I have one of these & love how it sharpens- I just have a question- how do you get it to stay attached to the table? It sharpens great, but it keeps coming off the edge where I have it attached. Any suggestions? Thanks! Carol cpolston3@yahoo.com

The Polished Teacher said...

Oh my goodness the jello prank is hilarious! Too funny! I thought the Elf on the Shelf pranking was the best but I think your pencil sharpener story takes the cake!

You are such a good sport. I would hyperventilate if my pencil sharpener ended up in jello like yours did. Leave it to the male teachers to play with their food as part of a prank;) Thanks for the chance to win this - I'm loving the pink!

I'm behind in my blog reading but I laughed when I saw the jello! I got ransom notes for my slipper once after a dress up day. It was hysterical and it turns out it was my male principal!!! He really was my pal. :-)
