Back to School Blog Tour

NEWBTSbutton

I am participating in the Back to School Blog Tour this week, sponsored by Living My MoMent and The Work At Home Woman.

We go back to school early here, and all 3 of my boys are well into the first few weeks of the new year.  My oldest son is a 3rd grader, my middle son is a 1st grader, and my youngest son is in PreK this year.  In addition to running my stationery & card business from home, I returned to the classroom last year as a substitute teacher, and I work at the older boys’ school anywhere from 1-5 days/week.  These past few weeks, I have had a lot of sub jobs, so its been very hectic and busy getting into the school routine while trying get 3 kids ready to go to 2 different schools and hustle out the door! (to say the least!)

When I started my business, my goal was to develop products that I would use, and I truly do!  As I have posted numerous times, I could not live without my excuse pads and school envelopes.  I have a few excuse pads stashed in different places because when I am subbing, I use them to let my sons’ teachers know where I will be in the building and how they are getting home.  Right now, I am using the rainbow name pads, and I am working on some new designs for their envelopes to use this year.
