Back to School Handmade Style
As Labor Day approaches, I am reminded that we are in the midst of the last days of summer before kids head back to school. When I was young, this was the time I was begging my parents for a new set of the extra large box of Crayola crayons, or later, in middle school, for the perfect first day school outfit from Abercrombie & Fitch.
Although my schools days are long gone, the week after Labor Day ushers in a very busy time for me at work through the end of the year. As a result, I find myself “rebooting” and prepping during this time as well. For me, that often involves finishing up odds and ends at work and cleaning out my closet. So today’s school-inspired finds are not only for those starting up with homework soon, but are also intended to inspire a little bit of “back-to-school” gumption post-Labor Day for all.
