..is getting back to reality, back to routine & the busyness of normality. I knew it was coming, we've had six weeks to relax, unwind and prepare for a new school year, but it seems I have been so absorbed in holiday mode that I've left everything to the last minute. I now have only today to get myself into gear. The school books are still in the boot of the car where I dumped them hastily the day I bought them back in December. Today I need to have everything labelled, shop for school lunches & get uniforms ready, which I hope still fit, since I haven't managed the time to buy new ones!
I've made some fresh wooden bag tags for the two little guys, military aircraft was the theme they chose. Apparently this is not an acceptable accessory for the big grade 4 boy. No picture could convince him, star wars, harry potter, indianna jones, whatever he'd like! No, it seems the the big boy is finding his own groove, his own style & taste in things, sigh...
pop on over to Kirsty's for more creative spaces...
Oh your wooden tags are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Goodness, it happens when they get bigger doesn't it, this whole mind of ones own thing! :)ReplyDelete
I love those tags, how cool! I'd proudly where it on my bag!
Love the tags, good luck with getting organised!ReplyDelete
ooohhh fab love the vintage-ness!!! how's the photography course?? xReplyDelete
Sounds like you have a very busy day ahead of you.ReplyDelete
The tags are fab!!
Love the tags, the vintage look of the planes are timeless!ReplyDelete
I know how you feel the holidays have ended and I too am not prepared for the return of school.. love the tags.ReplyDelete
Loven the wooden vintage tags! Goodluck with the labelling and organizing for school.ReplyDelete
The tags look great.ReplyDelete
I'm not organised either Mel. I have to buy the Grade 1 girl school shoes and have left it to today!!!! Good luck with the labeling.
The bags tags are great. I have a grade 5 boy this year, and he is very much finding his own groove.ReplyDelete
And I too and very unorganised, but I also have a job interview booked in for tomorrow as well, so I should stop drooling over blogs and start getting this organised.
Good luck with getting sorted today, it's something I'm really not missing this year. Your Tags are wonderful, it's sad your little man is making his first steps towards independence though. They just grow up too fast.ReplyDelete
Great tags. You should do a tutorial as I really would love some for my own bag! I am sure my grown boy wouldn't mind some either. Good luck with the job interview.ReplyDelete
That is all
WEll I think your tags are wonderful, and I'm sure one day he'll really regret not taking one xoReplyDelete
The military thing is a bit funny, well, when your father is in the Army for my children to wear anything slighty military is a unusual. They are really cool though, but yes, year 4, the attitude & personal taste really starts to kick in. Enjoy the ride, i have twins in year 4 this time, double the opinion, love PosieReplyDelete
Love that you prioritised crafting some new bag tags instead of all that other boring school stuff! You really are a CRAFTER!!ReplyDelete
I remember when our oldest started to have an opinion on style and taste. It was kind of sweet...love the army guys!ReplyDelete
Love those bag tags, Mel! My big guy is also tough to craft for, though he's always keen to make things for himself...they do grow up quickly, don't they?ReplyDelete
Don't you hate it when you can no longer sway there likes, with my daughter it has been since she was 2 but my son lasted a bit longer but at 10 I have no hopeReplyDelete
Love the bag tags! Hooray for upcycling.ReplyDelete
They are cool bag tags:) I hope that all the school preparations went well today I'd much rather craft than label all those books too;) xoReplyDelete
My boy would love those. What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Yes great idea and look so good!ReplyDelete
Those are very cool..And although it may not be the greatest feeling atleast you know the denial is a healthy part of him finding himself....All thanks to a wonderful momma...ReplyDelete
hope it all went well.ReplyDelete
Ha! Glad I'm not the only one left it all to the last minute!! I like the tags too!!ReplyDelete
I get you on the living with groove-finding anklebiters. In the last half year or so, I entirely gave up. You should see the smallest's clothing ensembles these days. I am startled and delighted that I couldn’t care less!ReplyDelete
I nominated you for the Stylish Blogger Award, Mel---details on my latest post. :)ReplyDelete
