start of school year gift

Start of School Year Gift | @melaniebauer at Melanie Makes

as i guessed, this week has been crazy.  and tiring.  earlier than normal alarms and new routines make for an exhausted menagerie and mama.  i did, however, want to pop in with the finished project with an awesome printable i shared previously in a friday finds post.

i’m definitely one of those over achiever mamas.  i’ll admit it.  i go overboard on things just because it’s something i like to do.  a creative outlet of sorts.  in just a couple of days, i’ve become quite smitten with the girls’ teachers and wanted to give them a little something today at parent/teacher conferences to let them know if they need help with anything, i’d be happy to lend a hand.  (i’ve removed my phone number from the tags.)

they were definitely well received.  i mean, who doesn’t use soap?  and they couldn’t be easier to put together.  print a sheet of tags, trim and then attach with some ribbon from my stash.  bonus points for really only costing me the amount of a bottle of soap.

you can find this great printable tag from skip to my lou, here.


  1. i love that you OWN your over achieving-ness. you really are just plain awesome– i wish i did HALF of what you accomplish!
    these are great, btw!

  2. You are an overachiever? Hum, I didn’t know that! 😉 LOVE THIS. Might have to copy … why change a good thing after all? Thanks for sharing!
