Summer's Over!

Well, it's official! Summer is over here in my neck of the woods. I returned to work this week for planning sessions by department as we get ready to implement new standards and new curriculum. I'm really excited by how much I accomplished and my expectations for the new school year. I work with an awesome group of people who make coming to work after a long break much more bearable! I made these little books for some of those peeps.....I wish I had the time and resources to make them for everyone! The image is from Art Impressions and it speaks volumes about how we are all going to feel by the end of next week as we get our rooms, plans, and other assorted requirements ready for the kids who will arrive on the following Monday! Did I mention the endless hours of trainings we have to work around to get our stuff done?
I made the notebooks refillable and even supplied each recipient with a small supply of refill pads!

The pads are the biggest hangup to making more of the books. I have bought all I have found, which are very few. Must be a hot item for the new school year as I usually see them everywhere. Have some of stampin' peeps on the look out, too.
Time to get some more planning done before the whole house wakes up and then some fun time later today as it's the last Friday of the summer!! Hope it's a good one for all of you and thanks for stopping in!!


  1. I know your teaching partners are going to love these, Lynnor! Although I have been retired for several years now, I well remember the hectic rush of that prep week! I hope you all have a wonderful year!

  2. I see some of the teachers here getting ready, but they still have two weeks,can't believe that it will have been three months that everyone was off. These are wonderful notebooks and refillable, that is wonderful, never saw that before. They are going to love it, especially with the image. Have a great weekend.


I love reading all your comments...thanks for leaving one today!
