Tomorrow is the first day of school
I finally took those photos of Em’s school stuff. Four books! Can you believe it? I am not quite sure what they’ll be learning but at least she has 4 fabulous looking books. Seeing as there was ONLY four, we decided that we could do more than we usually do, so we Cricut Cut the names, added a little bling, some have flowers and all have ribbon for page savers. We didn’t know about the nifty plastic covers then, (did I tell you that I love you Lisa?) so we Mod-Podged them to seal them. They do look nice, and the glitter isn’t all covered up. Then we had a thought that the pens would look cool matching using the left-overs. I think we got a little carried away, but who cares?
This is what they looked like bare. Naked. Cold. Boring.
Isn’t it nice to be able to go through Mum’s stash of Bling and stick them everywhere? Girls gotta have bling, even a strip of matching paper on the ruler and yes, you guessed it, bling.
Then Em found this cool gadget that she JUST HAD TO HAVE to store her pimped up pens in, and keep the flowers perdy. After a while of looking at it, we figured we could alter it too. Now nothing is safe and can have pink stuff, rub-ons and bling put on it. Maybe I will do my pantry door next.
The boys books, pencils, crayons, textas and pens are all done now too, just in time. Every last eraser and sharpener is labelled. I am in LOVE with the nifty plastic covers, the secret is out! It’s all too easy now, no more fighting with DUMB contact! No more I tell you! The boys picked their papers, and it was easy and fun, just as it should be. Good thing they don’t like flowers and bling though and I used up some old old papers that they thought was pretty good. Win win.
Uniforms ironed, socks set out… the best organised day of the school year. Now… if I can get them out of bed on time it’ll be a miracle.
