School is Back in Session 🏫

Back to School

Les Brown, an American motivational speaker, once said, “You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.” So if your kids are bummed about back to school month, you’re a college student who’s dreading 10-page papers and tiring lectures, or if you’re a teacher not ready for vacation to end, then remember these words of wisdom to find your motivation!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a student, teacher, or parent… everyone can start the school year with confidence and style with creative projects to show off!

in back to school stuff over here!  One week till the Heavens open the school bells ring.  We are making sure we have all of the supplies we need, and even a few extras.  We have all the latest fashions bought up and ready to be worn on the first day of school.  (anyone else out there that shudders at the clothes that are out now??)  Neon, converse and skinny jeans?  Really?  I know I am outing myself as an OLD un-cool person, but I just can’t believe that my kids are into the same stuff I liked waaaay back when.

We are gonna work on some fun, cute teacher presents this week….so stay tuned.
