Back to School

I have had mixed emotions about going back to school this year... I'm sad that summer has come to an end and that I'll be going back to work full time after 1 year on maternity leave and two years of working half time BUT excited to face the challenges that the new school year has ahead. (Plus I'm moving back to work in elementary school again which is a HUGE change from the 'big kids' at high school.) The first 3 days have been incredible! It is exciting to see all the initiatives that are taking place and what a great time to be in education!

NOW to the crafty side of
A friend was about to pay $10 for a fancy clip board while
shopping this summer... whoa sister!! I
can make that!!

The trickiest part was making the
template to go around the clip part.
Here is a great tutorial to follow to make some of your own, maybe a great teacher gift for the first day of school?!

I really like the added detail of the metal label holder on these ones.
There are lots of ideas if you search for them. You could make it more personal by adding the teacher's name or adding ribbons to the top, my friend likes things simple. I think she'll be happy.

Have a great school year!
