as soon as the girls get home from camp, it's time to start thinking about the first day of school. in fact there are only four days between the two! and actually those four days are more for them--i have teacher meetings to attend starting monday. today's flashback is one of my all time favorite projects, and with school starting next week, i have to pull together a few of them very soon. i create these little "back to school essentials" kits every year. they include tylenol, mints, hand sanitizer, quarters for the coke machine, etc. you know, any of those small things a teacher might really need (or want) at some point during those first days back. of course, i always include chocolate nuggets with stamped labels. this particular kit is from last year, but there are a couple more examples of the same thing in the various august and sepember archives. i love this pencil stamp from a muse so much that i might just do them the same again this year!
have a great weekend!
