10 chalkboard crafts for back to school

Chalkboard round up-Back-to-School

Want to get organized for back to school? Love all the fabulous ideas you’ve seen using chalkboard paint?

Every year I promise myself that I’ll get a better system for organizing the daunting amounts of paper that comes home…yeah, right! {smirk} So, I gathered these great ideas to inspire all moms in their never-ending endeavor to get organized (and stay that way!)

  • School Notes Chalkboard via Kaboose is an adorable way to leave you and your kids notes for each day (and so much cuter than my little post-it’s everywhere!)
  • Back to School Slate via Mommy Creations is a portable way to keep little ones learning.
  • Chalkboard Table via My{not so} Glamorous Life makes great place for little ones to practice early math, reading and writing skills.
  • Chalkboard Desk via The Rustic Pig will help keep all those school supplies organized for homework time. Besides, what kiddo doesn’t want to have furniture he can write on?!
  • First Day of School Sign via Who Arted will leave no doubt what year you took that photo!
  • Chalkboard Calendar via PSA Stamp Camp lets you track your students busy lives.
  • Chalkboard Clothespins via create share inspire gives every little scrap a home (and a label).
  • Back-to-School Paper Holder via Seasons Gredings gives you a labelled place to keep all those loose papers that come home daily.
  • Back-to-School Teacher Gift via Mom Endeavors is a charming way to start the school year off right.
  • Chalkboard Lunchbox via Fancy Frugal Life let’s you leave sweet notes and reminders for your little student.

As always, we hope you are inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Okay, a bit of a tech lesson on SEO. Let me tell you a secret. Link Parties are a fabulous way to improve your blog’s SEO! Yep. If you’ve been blogging for while, you’re bound to have been told or read about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and how crucial it is to getting your site/blog noticed by search engines such a Google. And having quality links in other blogs or sites that are similar to your own (parties, food, crafts blogs…), is vital to improving your rank, which mean your blog has more chances of being found in a search!

Plus, link parties offer you the chance to get your blog posts noticed and shared by others! Let’s all be good to each other ladies. If you love what you see, share it. It’s a great way to build relationships and show your appreciation for other bloggers.

Okay, so let’s get linky! {grin}

As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!

Monsters University {playdate party}

Monsters University

So who’s excited for tomorrow’s premier of the new Disney Monsters University movie?!

Dina of Deliciously Darling Events created this adorable playdate to celebrate.

Here are the details in her words:

My kiddos love animated movies. I’m actually not sure who loves these movies more, the kids or mama. We wanted to celebrate the upcoming Monsters University movie with a little MU Play Date. Inspired by The Celebrations ShoppeLynlee’s Petite Cakes & Laura’s Little Party instagram post, I decided to put together a sweet little dessert table for my kiddos play date.

Monsters University Monsters-University-2 Monsters-University-3 Monsters-University-4 Monsters-University-5Monsters-University-14 Monsters-University-16

So why do a dessert table on a couch? Answer: Why not? I’ve always wanted to set up a dessert display on a couch. This couch is perfection – white & leather so it’s easy to clean post play date. I wanted a simple, inexpensive & easy dessert set up. I opted for dressing up store bought cupcakes with monster eyes & using store bought sugar cookies. How perfect are the sully & mike cookies from Target? Chocolate covered oreo pops & brownie push up pops, sparkling fruit water were also featured. Wrap a few books in scrapbook paper and washi tape a Mike Wazowski to the couch and you have an instant party.

“Scream Like Monster.” I did a little research and loved the “Scream like Monster” tag line on the marketing posters for Monsters University. I fought the urge to insert an “A” into the banner while making it. Just before the play date, my son Malik walks up to me and says “Love the banner mom but you forgot an A. It should be ‘scream like A monster’ not ‘scream like monster.’” LOL. You never argue with a soon-to-be 1st grader when they are correcting you on your English.

I just couldn’t say no to the adorable Monsters U letter Jackets my kiddos are sporting. I know it’s like 100 degrees outside but they are going to be perfect for the fall when they return back to school.

I hope you enjoy & are inspired to put together your own “Scream Like Monster” party.
