CRAFT | Back-to-School DiY Posters

Last week marked the first week back to school for my older girls.
That means I was able to get crafty and create their annual "Candy Posters"...
celebrating having made it through their first week back.

I did change things up a tiny bit this year from last year's poster...
First of all, I did separate posters for each girl instead of one poster.
Second, I added in a couple of "good-for-you" items into the mix...
Take a peek...

This is a super simple idea...
and it's something you can create for teacher gifts...
a fun birthday gift for a co-worker...
or even an out-of-the-box birthday card for a family member/friend.

TiPS:
• If you have multiple posters to make, split up the candy/snacks into small ziploc bags to save money.
• Use a smaller poster board so you don't have to purchase as many snacks to fill it. 
   although the big poster board makes quite an impact...*wink*
• Don't worry about your handwriting being perfect...it's the candy/treats that are the main focus.
• Sharpie Markers are my favorite thing to use
• Keep it simple. I just used packing tape to stick the items to the board.
• Make this a "Group Gift" for someone in the office or your child's teacher by enlisting candy/snack donations
   from co-workers or parents.

Although I've got one daughter who is a  "Junior" this year *gasp*
and another one in 8th grade...*sigh*
They both REALLY love this idea.
(and neither of them claim to be too old to continue receiving these).
Are we ever too old for some treats?
Especially when they are presented in such a personalized manner?  *wink*

Have a great day everyone...

KEEPiNG iT REAL
Ella had an upset stomach on Friday...
but recovered quickly.
I ended up feeling crappy the whole weekend...
BUT still mustered up the energy to completely purge my closet.
I don't know what I was thinking but I'm glad I did it.
If you follow me on Instagram then you got a sneak peek.
I'll have to share my results with you...
You will think I'm absolutely insane...but that's okay. *wink*

But get this...
Ella woke up about midnight this morning with a fever and the "v" word.
Poor thing.
I don't know if this is something different or a continuation of things from Friday.
She was acting completely fine though the entire weekend??
Didn't sleep much to say the least...
