Fabulous Find Friday Linky Party

What have you found lately that you can't imagine living without?  For me, it has been the newest, best pencil sharpener ever!

The company, Classroom Friendly Supplies is just what it claims: friendly.  The owner of the company, Troy Decoff, is a teacher.  What better person is there to design a pencil sharpener that totes itself as being this:



I received my first one a few months ago when I won one from Misty at Think, Wonder and Teach:





Thank you, Misty! When I received it in the mail, I was so excited.  Here's what the experience was like:

It is, indeed quiet.  See for yourself:

This pencil sharpener is so fabulous, that my students last year would trade in a "warm fuzzy" (my managment system...kinda like "tickets") to have me sharpen their pencil.  This prize seemed better to them than a homework pass.  Now, that's saying something.

The best part of this sharpener is you can't mess it up.  Did you see in the video how you load it?  Well, that keeps it from getting jammed.  Then, once it is sharpened, you will feel a difference in the turn knob.  Then, it is the most beautifully sharpened pencil EVA!

The best part #2 is that it will sharpen those cheap, nasty plastic-covered pencils, too.  I've NEVER had a sharpener that could handle those pencils, have you?

So, there you have it.  The most fabulous find of all.

Do you have a fabulous find?  I'd love for you to link up and share.  I'm hoping to make this linky a little different.  Instead of a long list, highlight one terrific item detailing what makes it fabulous.  One more option (one that I may take next Friday) is to highlight a Fabulous Find for school and a separate Fabulous Find for home.
