A few weeks ago I was asked to join in the Back to school fun over at the Ribbon Retreat. All of the bloggers were given a letter of the alphabet and asked to make something that went with that letter and back to school. I am so excited to be sharing the letter "L" with you in the Back to School Series. I had a few ideas for the letter "L". I finally decided on making a reusable Lunch bag. I have seen them on the web but this little bag is special. Why you ask? Because most of these tutorials use vinyl fabric from the store. I chose my own fabric to make this and used an awesome product called Thermo Web Iron on Vinyl. You can use whatever fabric you want and make it vinyl! It is so cool! I fell in love with this adorable alphabet fabric at the Ribbon Retreat and went to work.

Have your kids gone back to school?? Mine still have a week at home but we are totally gearing up to get them their! New clothes, backpacks and school supplies are on the list! We think so much about getting our kids ready but today I wanted to share a little something for the teachers!

So now as I watch my own kids head out to school I want to give a little back. With a little help from Office Depot and Photoshop I came up with this fun giving basket for a special teacher. Packed with school supplies just for him or her!

I have been desperately looking for a new dresser. I found an old dresser at a local thrift store. It was in decent condition so I took it for under $90. Not to bad for an old solid dresser. The dresser had good structure but the vintage 70's stain was much to be desired. So I pulled out the old sander and went to town.

It's August and I haven't posted any Young Women Come Follow Me printable in a while so I am trying to get caught up. I will add them as I plan my lessons. First up was my lesson on how Men and Women compliment each other. I started my lesson with images that complimented each other. ie. Tom & Jerry, PB&J, stuff like that. Then I worked out my lesson with then talks and videos given. For my hand out I made this fun printable with a pack of mentos.
How do Men and Women Compliment each other:

So click on the links and pick a couple out for your kids!

Over the past few months I have really been thinking about goal setting and how it can influence my life. I have shared may a conversations with other about the topic. I even shared my thoughts about the subject with my Young Women, and how important it can be when making long term plans and goals. I have never really been a goal writer. It just isn't something I have ever really done.
A friend shared a study with me on the positive effects of goal setting. Did you know that people who write there goals down are more likely to follow through? And even more impressive is that when it comes to jobs and education those goal writers achieve higher grades and make upwards of 1o times form money than those who don't? I was amazed at the statistic.
Then I heard Noelle Pikus Pace speak, she truly inspired me to want more! I needed to decide what I really to achieve. I came up with these free goal setting printable's to help me on my journey.
