Tell it Tuesday: Back to School Ideas

I thought it would be fun to stop in on a few of our hosts periodically and update the My Craft Channel followers on what they're up to with our Tell it Tuesday blog posts. So here's a quick recap on a few of them for you. If you do pop over to their blogs to read more, be sure to leave them some comment love!!

Dollar Store Crafts
Heather from our Get a Little Creative group posted this fun Monogram teacher's gift idea on her blog. Loved the different ideas she talks about and started of thinking of some of my own after being inspired by her blog post

One Charming Party
What a fun idea...lunch sack labels. After trying out a variety of different lunch bags they sell with the backpacks this time of year, we always ended up back to using go ol' brown paper sacks. I didn't have to worry about if my kids remembered to bring them home or stress if they were lost, because they just get tossed in the trash...but these cute labels make it more personalized and fun!

I Heart Faces Photography
I had to go back to an older blog post to find this, but since our topic seems to be about Back to School I thought the creative gals at I Heart Faces could give us all some great ideas on back to school photos and they did NOT disappoint. I loved this post and hope to put some of their inspiration to work this next week (if my teenagers will cooperate).

Have a great Tuesday!!


  1. I loved those picture ideas wish I would of had them this past weekend when I took the kids back to school shopping. Some times I forget that pictures can be taken while shopping!

  2. some lovely inspiring projects... like the lunchbags idea - I remember that moment when you realise they'd left their lunchbox at school (erm - most days!)
