Monika here today with the last post for me in this Summertime Dailies series. We are already into our second full week of school in East Tennessee, our school supply shopping is complete and we've already had our First Grader home yesterday with a bout of Strep Throat. Yep, school's in session.
My two girls are in the age that they love to create with Mommy's baker's twine, washi tape and glue dots. Kind of a perfect combination for prettying up some school supplies, don't you think?
Our spunky little Victoria is a lover of all shades of blue and we had the most lovely time sitting in the floor of our craft space going through my collection of pretty paper to find THE most perfect sheet for the front of her new notebook. It's blue, of course, and I purposely purchased one of then notebooks with the pockets in front so that we could personalize it just for her.
This mini spiral bound notebook is to be used for weekly spelling word review. It also had a clear acrylic-like front that was just begging to be embellished...this time with washi tape, which my girl carefully chose from my collection, a chipboard banner shape adorned with an enamel dot and some twine.
The thirty minutes we spent sitting in the floor together, while her older sister was upstairs reading in her room, was a nice peek into what I hope will be many more moments spent choosing pretty paper together. She felt so grown up getting to make her own choices for her big girl, First Grade school supplies.
