This year I’ve made up my mind that I’m going to intentionallyembrace everything that Fall brings. Back to school time is a favorite because of all the school supplies. Do I have any other stationary or back to school supply addicts out there? Even when I don’t need a thing, I buy supplies because they are so fun! Although this year I have a good excuse to buy supplies because our church is donating school supplies directly to the teachers. Great idea huh? In honor of back to school I treated myself to some new washi tape you’ll see throughout my weekly spreads. I have to say I’m in love with my September 2018 bullet journal set up.
I chose Flamingo’s because I wasn’t quite ready to give up summer and the beautiful sunshine that still abounds. Did you know that flamingos are born with grey feathers? Actually, flamingos gradually turn pink in the wild because their diet of brine shrimp and blue-green algae contain a natural pink dye called canthaxanthin. I printed a few different images for ideas and then narrowed it down.
See my new washi tape? I bought this set from Hobby Lobby last week. It almost jumped in my basket by itself. Made by The Paper Studio it’s a 9pc Green/Pink Floral washi tape set. Priced at $14.99 regularly it was marked down on clearance for a whopping $3.75. With the binder clips and the paper clips, it had back to school written all over it. I’ll be looking for other ways to use this washi in the near future.
Another fascinating Flamingo fact is they are more stable and balanced when standing on one leg. In fact, they expend less energy and use no muscle activity on one leg. I love the quote on this page. When I hear this quote in my head I imagine Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” saying this. “Stand tall, Darling!”. Fun to think about.
Which quote from my September weekly pages is your favorite and why? Tell me in the comments below.
