Sorry I have been out of touch for the past week! Steve’s mom visited for a few days, and then my parents were here for a few days right afterwards. We played, bowled, fished, shopped, had Drew’s birthday party, celebrated Drew’s actual birthday, and swam at the pool. There was no time for blogging or even having my computer open!
As I now work to start crossing things off my looooooong to-do list, here are a few past posts of mine that relate to “school”, since it seems that is what is on everyone’s minds these days!
I made these cupcakes for Kate’s preschool class a few years ago and they were such a hit! Super easy and super cute!

I made this DIY fabric embellishment for Kate’s backpack last year, and it has held up so well, she will be wearing again this year!

I recently posted about these K-12 school file folders that I made for each of the kids. I am so happy to be organized for when report cards, school pictures, and other mementos start pouring in!

This inexpensive artwork display is one of my favorite things in our whole house! I can’t wait for new artwork from pre-k and kindergarten to adorn these walls!
// Kid’s Artwork Display //
This growth chart is also hanging in our mudroom and I just measured Drew on it for his 6th birthday. This is another DIY that was inexpensive and easy to make, and I know we will cherish it even when our kids are grown and out of the house! I love the ruler look…natural and classic and useful!

Nothing screams “school” more than a chalk wall! I painted a tall/narrow wall between the mudroom and kitchen in chalk paint, and it is the number one thing people comment on in my house. For minimal effort, a chalk wall makes a big impact!

I also wanted to send a huge thank you to four blogs for featuring my Framed Wrapping Paper post this past week!
