Fall Tags

I am so ready for fall! It is my favorite season and it's just around the corner. I decided to do a little crafting while Miss Makenna was off to her first day of school and this is what I came up with! The owl tags are made with the current August stamp of the month from Close to My Heart. It is a really versatile stamp set and I just love the images on it. The Halloween tags are a mish-mash of various things I had in my stash. Thanks for checking them out!

First day of school!

Today was the first day of school for Makenna. I cannot believe my beautiful baby is already in 3rd grade! She was very excited this morning and couldn't wait to get there. I am praying that she has a wonderful school year. I always look forward to the first day of school-the new crayons and shoes, the fresh smell of a new ream of paper, sharp yellow pencils with the eraser still attached-they all take me back to when I was a child. At the same time, I also look at this day with a small sense of regret. Did I take full advantage of the extra time I had with her or did I spend the last three weeks of summer vacation wishing the clock would go faster so I could get five minutes to myself? Actually, I did both. Today I have had a whole day full of peace and quiet. And I am a little lonely. I miss her. Hurry up and get here Saturday!
