I love this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson and thought using old pencils, pens and a typewriter would be a neat way to carry the message.
Here it is full size. The wall hanging measures about 10 across by 17 tall.

I decided my first assemblage for 2009 needed to set the tone for me for the rest of the year...

MimiToria writes: A great "New Years" quote Jenny. However, I'm feeling guilty after viewing this post. On New Years Day, I was in the Junk decluttering mood and threw away a lot of excess pens/pencils. Naughty me!

FunktionalJunk writes: It seems like my kids always wind up with all these pencils that they want to discard when they get about half-way used. This would be a wonderful way to use them. And the old type-writer font is perfect to convey such a wonderful message!

piecesofthepast writes: This is cool...I've always been a lover of colored pencils and break them out when I see any old chance at work with my kids. It's something about the worn texture of them and great hues. This piece plays homage to the good old pencil! Never throw them out! Posted: 9:19 pm on January 1st
