Crazy day today… and although I got up and at ‘em early… I don’t feel like I have accomplished as much as I would have liked. Although, I think I am just comparing that to my yesterday which I just CRANKED and it felt great. Today was more like flitting from one project and demand to another-mostly focused on things that other people needed me to do, and not what I deemed necessary! We did get the whole house cleaned! That is awesome…my bags are packed for Edmonton…all checklists checked! Went to Costco…can I just tell you how much I love going to Costco knowing that I can come back next week!?
I think it’s fun to ‘people watch’ at Costco. You can tell a lot about people by what they have in their carts! You can tell a lot about their ‘time and season’ of life. Some are full of diapers, formula, milk and eggs… others had beach towels, sprinkler toys and yard lighting. Still others, had chips, plastic cups, flats of soda and a personalized graduation cake. We are still in the diaper category: goldfish crackers, granola bars, cereal, mickey mouse chicken nuggets…and $13 swim trunks for boys. As I was contemplating my ‘time and season’…and looking around at a couple of these mom’s that were clearly dealing with Graduations…I caught myself wondering what was in store for us between now and then..
We have been working on graduation stuff at House of 3… this stuff is so cute. Rhonna has put together some graduation kits that have announcements, invitations, thank you cards, address labels and wrappers. She did this really cool, simple announcement for someone she knows… I love the look of this. And Janet’s nephew is graduating, and she did some really cool stuff for him. If there is someone in your life in this ‘time and season’… check out the 'create' section of the House of 3 website for more images.
i especially love this idea of using the 'wrappers' to wrap around water bottles, soda and CANDY! could be chocolate bars... or even that theater size candy... Rhonna posted these on her blog todaY!
if you aren't into the digi thing... you can totally just print out the PDF versions of these files, and write or stamp the graduates name on to personalize! think quick and easy! These would be great favors for showers, parties, thank you gifts and just simple 'thinking of you' gifts... everyone loves chocolate! wink!
