"It's Time for School Again!"

Well, here we go. . .another school year is upon us! Alyssa will be in the 6th grade this year. Half way through! Whew! Even though this summer has seemed pretty long, all of a sudden the first week of school is suddenly upon us and I hadn't gotten anything made for ofc. staff; principal; or, homeroom teacher for the first day. So, I thought I better get busy!

Well, this is officially the first, of many things, that will be made for the 2008-09 school year.

This is a combo of two different size 'note' pads that I covered with school-themed paper from Foof-a-la, and a RSVP pen. These were easy to cover and I just inked and sanded the edges for a worn look.

I'll tie this combo up for Alyssa to give to her homeroom teacher. (Since she doesn't know yet whether the teacher will be male or female, I'm glad the colors will work either way.)

p.s. Thanks, Rochelle, for sending me these great 'note' pads in my goodie box! You spoil me!!

I love your teacher gifts :-) I had every intention of painting a wall hanging and personalizing for my son to take to his teacher today but somehow the summer flew by us too. We are in Dyersburg so you must not be too far away. I'm Sherri by the way. Have a blessed weekend!

Awesome gift for the teacher and you're welcome for the note pads and the goodie box. It was fun to put together for you. I can't wait to see all the things you make with what I sent.

JoAnna, you are such a precious person. You give gifts to everyone, doctors, teachers, etc., and I know that you must be highly thought of and highly appreciated! Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful ideas with all of us!
