Hey there! Did you think that I forgot to announce the prize winners for the Back to School Tour? Of course not. Life got slightly hectic so it took awhile before I was able to put this post together. Here is the recap of the Back to School tour. Check it out to see if you missed any stops along the way.
First off many thanks to all the bloggers and sponsors for taking part in our tour! We ♥ you lots!

Yup. BUT before we get to that, I have a back-to-school clothing checklist to share with you. I’m no graphic designer so it’s not super pretty with lots of colour and glitter.. (well, no digital glitter, you could always glue some glitter to it after printing it out). It’s basic black and white with enough space to check off the amount of pretty much anything you might need for a Fall and Winter clothing closet and some space to write in sewing pattern ideas.

Just TWO more days! I truly am super excited about this tour (I’m also super excited about the next one we’re planning too). I LOVE back to school time. When I was a kid, as a university student, as non-student pre-kids even. I just love brand new school supplies, lol.
The other day I shared with you two sneak peeks and the prize details. Today, I have details on all the discounts being offered for the tour.

September means Back to School around here. I decided to choose my Friday Favourites based on the term Teacher’s Pet. Enjoy!

- This apple scented beeswax candle from Beeswix Candles would make a good gift and get you on the Teacher’s Pet list for sure! 😉 Made of all natural beeswax in Ontario, Canada, they donate some of their proceeds to Ontario beekeepers.
- I love the scalloped edges of the ceramic Best Teacher brooch. Tenacious Bloom handmakes all different kinds of stamped brooches from their location in England.
- What a fun mailbox this would be to have (if you still get home delivery service!) Don’t want a school bus mailbox? The Bus Box makes other fun mailboxes too.
- Books and an apple, nothing says ‘school’ more than that! It can be printed as a note card or an art print to be framed for your wall, from Torn Paper Memories.
- Suzy Ultman has lots of cute art prints in her shop. I love this kitty cat with the apple, aptly titled Teacher’s Pet.
- The Bear Rug Coaster from Dandyrions is oh sew cute! Made of felt and comes with the tiny apple. Makes a great gift for drinkers of coffee or tea. 😉 I want one!
First off, I have to say that I kinda flopped on this project. Stuff happened and I wasn’t able to finish as many pieces as I hoped, plus I discovered a stash of clothing that she had received for her birthday in the winter that was too big for her at the time. So I realized that she didn’t need quite as many items made for her school wardrobe as I had originally thought. So, I pared it down quite a bit. (I do however, have a few more pieces in the process of being made for another tour later this month for her!) But I tried to make everything I made work with all the RTW birthday items I found hiding in her closet.

Each week I’ll be sharing 5 things I’ve come across that fall into five different categories.
Something I’ve read, something I found inspiring, something that I want to sew, another to create and finally, something I want to cook.
