Back to School DIY

Hi friends.

I hope your summer has been just sumptuous.

 'm not quite back at my desk but, am thinking of creativity and you!  As we speak, I have our table full of several last-minute back-to-school projects that I hope to share with you soon. (Crossing, crossing fingers we complete everything before tomorrow morning!) Until then, I wanted to toss together a simple post with many of our school favorites and wish you a wonderful August!

Teacher Gifts, school supplies and little details for your kids make that shift into the swing of school feel so much better, right? All of these projects are so wonderful to do, side-by-side or can be prepared by you. I can't wait to get you started.

Don't you think school is sweet with a soft start? Make soft-serve ice cream cone hair bands:
