Cool Pen in 5 Minutes

About: I'm a musician, crafter, dessert lover and proud grandma.

Summer is almost over! Back to school season is here and everybody is getting excited about it!

When my daughters were in Elementary School they enjoyed preparing all their notebooks, pens and colors to go back to school.

Now I see that same excitement in my granddaughter! I created this pen and she simply loved how it looks! She cannot wait to show it to her friends!
