I think I am ready to give this blog thing another try. So brace yourselves for more than one post this week. ( of course my computer acts up so if it takes a few days you will know why.)
I thought I would have my first post be about getting ready for "back to school". School doesn't officially start for us until September 8th but I will be a hosting a small back to school party for my some dear friends of ours. It will hopefully turn out good ( I have lots of ideas but until it actually happens, well you know how that goes.) So I have been a crafting fool for the last few days. Here are a few things that I have made.
Pencil vases ( side note, hot glue does not hold the pencils. I will be trying double sided tape. I read this is a magazine and should have tried it right away.) These will be great for the table and for a little present for the Mom. I also thought maybe a great teacher gift for open house night. Still chewing on that.
ABC letters. I have had these letters in my stash for a few years. Finally decided to craft them up a bit. I still might add a little bling to them.
Crayons in a vase. Simple addition for tablescaping. Just add a bow and you are good to go.
Picture in frame. I love the saying and it is my motto for my kids. Just be creative and don't worry about perfection.
Lastly, a no sew table cloth, for the kids table. Thanks for the idea Sue. I just loved the fabric. I bought 1 yard and added some pom pom fringe with hot glue. Instant cuteness!! I will be making more of these.
I am excited to do more for this party. I also bought a banner on Etsy (shown in picture).
I will also be posting some of my trash to treasure items too. Hope they turn out the way I am envisioning.
