In my continued quest to be excited for school, I decorated my mantel.
Really, it did help a bit. I still miss my kids though. And I miss staying up late, sleeping in late and swimming. Anyway...school. We are in school. We are celebrating being in school. I'll just keep telling myself that!
And if I can't be happy about school then I'll be happy to use some decorative school items! :)
I filled an apothecary jar with vintage letter blocks. On the silver plate I used a library card and a flash card.
In front of my ever present Chevron art, I have an old chalkboard that I added some ruler washi tape to, a clipboard with some cute school paper, my ruler frame and some ABC blocks.
On the other end I used a jar of pencils and a printable that I whipped up of some inspirational quotes. I don't know if anyone wants it and since I don't know how to embed a document link, if you want the printable, email me and I'll email it to you.
I better get used to the idea of my kids being gone. My littlest starts Kindergarten next year.
I better go do some retail therapy to cheer myself up and help me forget how much I miss my kids.
Maybe I'll find some more stuff to redecorate my mantel for the next season. Fun!!
