Back To School Blues

My boys both started school this morning, one in grade 2 and the other in preschool.  I was quite sad about it yesterday, not looking forward to the routine, and not liking the idea that my little one will now seemingly need me less! Ha! I know that’s silly, of course he still needs me, maybe even more so when exposed to the ‘real world’.  But still, I guess I am just being a “mom” and worrying about the future, wondering how I will keep those doors of communication open, when i am not there to see and hear and be a part of every little thing that goes on in my children’s lives.  Also, I have to face the fact that they are not babies anymore, and that does make me sad.  Even though I do look forward to seeing how they will change and grow at the different stages of their lives, I will miss that special time (as exhausting as it was) when they were babies in my arms.

O.k enough of this, or I will not be able to continue with this post.

I made a slider box for my youngest to keep some new pencil crayons in etc.  and gave it to him along with a card last night before bed.  If you recall, I had made my oldest boy a mini covered notebook a few posts back, and I gave that to him last night as well. Both were very happy and I got big kisses and hugs, so I’m so glad that I made them!

I left the red panel blank in this photo, but I later added his name on it in black ink.   The flip top has a magnetic snap attached.

If you have any questions about this project, or would like to see a photo tutorial on it, let me know.  my first post ever featured these slider boxes, and a written “how to”, in a pdf file you can find in my tutorials section.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for visiting! I have always needed to express my creativity, and I am the happiest when I do so. My blog is a way to challenge myself creatively, keep me motivated and inspired, to explore new ideas, and to share them with others! I feel the need to express myself in new ways...I hope you'll join me!
