How is it time for the first day of school already?! If there is one thing I know, it is how fast these years are going by.
You always hear from the older generations how kids grow up in the blink of an eye. Before having kids of my own I’d practically strain my eyeballs from rolling them back so far into my head, but you know what? It is so true.
Summer break, then fall break, then winter break, then spring break and then BOOM summer break again. Crazy, isn’t it?
My friend Crystal makes these First Day of School chalkboards and I am in love. Want to make your own before school starts? All you need is a piece of chalkboard cut to size and a Cricut machine (although any vinyl cutting machine would work).
Spell out your child’s name (or don’t, especially if you have multiple children, you can write it in) and place your dots. Be to sure to include all of the information you’d like to remember.
So much better than my construction paper designs I’ve been using all these years.
Don’t have a Cricut machine or don’t have time/want to make your own? That’s cool because…
We are giving one away just in time for school to start. (see entry details below)
If you don’t want to wait and see if you’ve won, you can order one from my friend Crystal on her Facebook page for just $15 (or $18 with personalization) and if you order while this giveaway is active (mention this giveaway, through August 14th) you get a 10% discount. Sa-weet!
