Back to School!

Every year I can't help but get excited when stores start to put out their school supplise, smelling the crayons through the boxes an seeing shelves upon shelves of empty notebooks just makes me want to hop right onto a bus. However this year I have an even bigger reason to get excited, I'm starting back to school myself! Yep, that's right! come August 11'th I will be starting my first day at the University of Phoenix online for a bachelors in elementary education. I am so excited, but I'm even more nervous! It's been so long since I've even attempted a math equation much less written an essay...but here I go!

I've been working on making myself a nice and inviting little workspace, here's what I have so far...there are still a few things I want to pick up, like this vintage looking desk organizer I found at Ross, and a nicer lamp, but for now this will have to do. I made the bulletin board out of some discount fabric I bought a while back and vintage pearls off of a bracelet of mine that broke. I purchased the beautiful vintage velvet ribbon off of My Little Pink Studio, and I was absolutely shocked when the package came in with a return address from my hometown in Tennessee!!! what a small world. I just love it when things like that happen.

After looking at the post I realized that my ribbon is pretty uneven on my bulletin board...oops! oh well, better luck next time :)
