Today is my final day of summer. Tomorrow I have a workshop, Friday I have to go to school to get ready for the workshops that I will be teaching on Monday and Tuesday. So what does a nerdy teacher do with her last day of summer? She writes a To-Do list:
Then she categorizes her To Do list into two separate to do lists: To Do “Home” and To Do “Errands”
Confession: I have been known to write things on a To Do list that I have already done, just so I can cross it out. Crossing things off a list is so satisfying. So today I have been gleefully crossing things off my list! Wanna see some purchases?
This is the fabric I picked out for the pillows I’m sewing for my library! You have to see this one up closer:
How cute is that!? I try to stay very kid-friendly and gender neutral, and I’m not sure that this fabric fits that bill, but I LOVE it. I can’t wait to show you these finished pillows!
The next item I did not technically purchase!
No, I didn’t steal this box full of nail aprons. I went Home Depot to pick up a few house plants and 25 nail aprons for the backs of my chairs. You may be wondering, what the heck does she do with Nail Aprons? One of my teacher friends had this great idea last year, she ties the aprons around her student’s chairs and the pockets are the perfect size for kids to keep their chapter books! (Way cheaper than those chair pockets they sell at teacher stores!) When I went to customer service to see if I could get a teacher discount, the manager gave them to me for FREE! Woohoo! Shout out to Home Depot! Seriously, they were so great. They wanted to know all about my class, where I teach and how I’m going to us the aprons. Thanks for supporting teachers Home Depot!
My other purchases are still in the car because they will go straight to school, but I’ll make sure to take pictures of where everything ends up.
