I saw these on a blog and thought they were too cute and wanted to make my own. This year is weird because I really only have one teacher to buy for. If I made Sydni haul these to her jr. high teachers she would kill me, so one it is.
I decided to hot glue the ribbon and flower on so she could keep it there all the time. I bought a package of those big pink flowers at a scrapbook store a while back and have used them on tons of things. Tote bags, clipboards and binders (and of course this). The tag is just a post-it note. I filled it with push pins, band-aids, hand sanitizer, lip balm, paper clips (big and small), tab post-its, erasers, candy, hair bands, safety pins, cough drops and award stickers. I was happy with it. The only tough part was coming up with stuff that would fit in those little compartments! Happy Back-to-School!!
I love waking up to the rain then turning over and going back to sleep. I love kissing my kids on the cheek to wake them each morning. I love kissing my husband on the cheek before bed each night. I love decorating my house and making gifts for my friends. I love making to-do lists and crossing things off them. I love reading a great book while drinking a Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper from Sonic. I love snuggling under the covers when it's cold outside and watching a movie. I love listening to loud music in the car, especially music my kids hate. I love meeting friends for the first time and knowing they will be your friend for a lifetime. I love taking Sunday afternoon naps. I love watching the first snow of winter fall. I love friends who make me laugh so hard I cry. I love that I have several of those friends. I love late night drives and early morning prayer. But most of all I love the Lord and my family. I love that they all love me back despite my many flaws. I love that you are here and hope you come back again.
