Just a quick note to express my joy and sadness about the first day of school. I can't believe I have a 2nd and 4th grader (sigh). So, here are a few things that I have done recently that make me smile. The first is a drawstring backpack for one of my 3 yr old's friends. It was a birthday present and she was sooooo excited when she opened it! How it makes one's heart happy when excitement abounds over one's creativity!!
A pink taffeta bag lined with a pink and green toile. Along with Amy Butler fabric, toile ALWAYS makes me smile.
A Liberty Original giftwrap. It is always fun to open something pretty.
Lastly, a dishtowel I made for Lori for her wedding shower. It's always refreshing to see words of encouragement when you are trudging away in the kitchen.
I'm going to go hug my kids now and make them something yummy for dinner! I am looking forward to smelling their freshly shampooed heads as we are snuggled in bed and reading together..... one of my favorite school year routines. :)
