It 's Back to school time!




Well, I have to say that I am glad it is time for school to start.. so are my boys! As I have said before I really don't like summer. at all!! It has been so hot for so long now that it is nice the mornings are starting to be cool. Love to sit out on my patio in the morning with my cup of tea and look at my pretty rose bushes.. Patrick's school always has a "Back to School" fundraiser and I, of course, always get asked to make something. This year I made one of my "Teacher Survival Kits" I used the same Daisy D's paper (LOVE that vintage school paper), but this time I also used some felt and tags and rick rack. I really like how this turned out and I hope it nets lots of money! My picture taking skills leave lots to be desired, as does my patience when taking pictures, but I wanted to show you the tin itself. I used a Provo Craft lunch box and filled it with lots of little necessities..with a matching poem to go with each one. Skittle, Hugs and Kisses, a rubber band, an eraser, some marbles, lifesavers, a puzzle piece and finally a piece of string..
The boys and I saw the new Rush Hour movie today and it didn't disappoint.. FUNNY!! Now, I am off to the kitchen to make spaghetti for dinner and whip up a chocolate zuchinni cake.. The cake is by special request! It is the easiest recipe and yummy to boot! Have a wonderful Saturday evening,,whatever you are doing!
