Inspired by Pinterest

Here are a few things I've done in the past week or so.  All were ideas that I pinned on Pinterest - love it!  The first project was to get the kids' school stuff organized.  I saw this idea and immediately knew I would do it - you just make a file box for each child, and then have a hanging file for each year.  I have started a school scrapbook for Brady (and will do one for Drew & Mallory) but I hadn't decided where to put all the extras - class picture, report card, papers I saved, etc.  I think this is a great system for all that extra stuff!

This week was teacher appreciation week.  While I don't feel obligated to send something every day, I do like to send a little something and prefer if it's at least a bit homemade.  I ended up sending different gifts for Mallory's teachers - we received a sheet with their "favorites" on it, and I really try to come up with something that I know they will use!

These were for Brady and Drew's teachers.  I filled them with
fortune cookies and a gift card to Bath & Body Works.

I tried to make fortune cookies out of paper - I found several set of instructions online. However, after I wasted two sheets of paper trying to fold the things correctly... I gave up!  Perhaps working on them late at night wasn't the best idea.
