College Bound

What's one thing ever college student needs....a suitcase. So, I made one for our niece Abbey who heads off to college tomorrow filled with a gift card to treat herself to a special night out. Congrats Abbey we are so proud of you!

Tutorial on how to make your own mini Suitcase can be found here (Thanks Susanne Dean):

First Day of School Gifts

I feel it's important to tell our teachers how thankful we are for what they do....something we have always done at our house is "first day of school is teacher gifts". Each year I try to come up with something I haven't done before, it is usually something I have seen somewhere or got inspiration from. This year the twins are giving their Kindergarten teachers the Pencil Holder. Ashton's going to give her teacher the Crayola Crayon Candy Holder and each child is taking a candy pencil made up of Sweet Tarts, Rollo and a Hershey's kiss. Sure to be a hit!

Back to School

Hard to believe we are a little over a week away from school starting. I have been busy getting all three of my kids ready...having a hard time with the idea of my babies heading off to Kindergarten. :( We have been purchasing all the "fun" school supplies, which got me in the mood to try one of those cool Backpack Boxes found here's my twist with the new Celebrations Designer Paper. Enjoy!
