1st day of school :)

Hey Yall,

Today was the first day of school for my little man!!!! He and I was both excited! (I was super dooper excited lol)  He saw this sign that I made and loved it.  He kept telling me to take a picture.  So cute!

Parents when to the school with our kidos for the first hour this morning for orientation.  Since Azland has been in school since he was 3, because he is autistic, he has no problem telling me bye! lol When it was time to go he said "OK have a good day!" and turned right around and walked off.

I thought I would take a picture like this every year and give it to him when he finishes school.  I can't wait to see what each year looks like and how he grows.

Washi Tape Storage Idea

Hey Yall,

I often have a problem figuring out the BEST way to store my stuff to suite ME.  Well I think for me this is the best way to store my washi tape.  I can easily see what I have and a good sample of it.  Also, it is in a clear container so I can find it easily.  AND I am recycling too! ;)

I like it because it doesn't take up much space and holds many items.  AND did I mention it is CLEAR!

YES Yall it is a peanut butter jar and after I got all the sticky off with some goo gone (love that stuff) it is like a new jar!  LOVE IT so I thought I would share!

Happy Crafting!!

Merry Christmas stamp - CTMH "Say It In Style"
