5 Things I Love For Back To School

September 16, 2014

Gold foil is so hot right now, have you noticed? And bold contrasts too, like black and white stripes. And don’t get me started on totes with upbeat girl power phrases. I think every now and then we need to treat ourselves so with back to school here and with lots of us taking online classes or who know teens going back to high school or have college pals heading back in, etc. I found 5 things that you may like for yourself or to give as a gift. These are all handmade, high quality and decor8 tested and approved from makers that fit MY version of what back to school means to me at the moment – a hint of glam!

    I love the folio. I always try to take zippy office supplies in when I teach a class. I think my students like it almost as much as I do….right? I’m doing it for them… ;-)
