o.k...first...let's get some business out of the way...
This week over at Heidi Swapp's blog I showed off a few things you can do with the Minc. Um...make that the Minc Mini. How adorable is that little machine! I adore how it fits so well on my work space and heats up so quickly and is at my ready. Now if only the rest of the world would be on my work space at my ready.
Because it is back to school. And because I am loathe to say good bye to summer days by the pool and lazy evenings by the fire pit, I had to create some happy in my home. A little empty corner was put to work to celebrate the new school season.
This little guy here loves that I made this corner up. He is happy to sit right there and color and what not. That's until he gets distracted by his friends riding their bikes outside the window.
Very often on this blog I have showed off my dress form. She was sure to play the part of teacher here in my back to school corner. I 'Minc-ed' a few of the 3D Flowers and some apron straps from the 5th Avenue Paper for her and she is ready to teach.
And a good teacher always needs some flowers.
I shared this on my instagram (@jamiepate). Grab the Polka Dot Alphas. Foil them up pretty like. Hot glue a skewer to the back. And add to a bouquet for that special teacher. Easy. Peasy.
Mini composition books found in the office supply department are easy to add Minc Tags to the front and give them to your kids for passing notes, I mean, for writing down wonderful things about their mom. Or friends. Or teacher. Or mom.
Again with the teacher gift. Add 'a little something' treat bag to the front of a brown paper bag and give a note and some goodies to a teacher. You will have the most spoiled teacher ever.
And one other thing I did with the Minc Mini and some of the 3x3 tags was to pre-make notes for my kiddos. I just grab a note and drop it in their lunch bag. Tell 'em you love 'em. They like that. Really. Even the high schooler.
Happy back to school!!!
