Back to the books

Like many of you, we are prepping for the start of school. My kids have had 3 full days back. My oldest daughter and I spent some time this weekend customizing and color-coding her binders and notebooks. She is entering her Junior year – not quite sure how that happened because it wasn’t that long ago that her stuffed animal frog┬ásnuck off to Kindergarten with her…. but anyway, she is planning on a busy, busy year and wanted to get off to an organized & stylish start. We started by printing out a copy of a recent painting and fitting it into one of her binders. She loved that look so we manipulated the photo to create multiple color schemes for each class. Here are a few. Working with daughter #2 this evening to created her look. Enjoy & here’s to a great school year!

I love animal prints, in moderation. An example are the leopard print ballet flats I have, I have bought & worn out 3 pairs. Just a little touch of sass. I have been eyeing a lot of zebra rugs over the last couple of years. Is it too late to jump on this bandwagon or is this a classic? Thoughts, concerns?
