  4. Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

    My school story is a bit sad...my son just started his senior year of high school and I dread what awaits me this time next year.

  5. I follow your blog... I hear your tweets.. as for back to school? its been a few years about 13 since my college days. But I love it when the neighborhood kids go back to school. Can I shamelessly steal your graphic for my blog?

  6. Cograts on the sales! No kids, and both my hubby and I are done with school for the time being, so no great story... but I do know school is back in session because if I don't leave by 8am, it will take me an hour (versus 30-35 mins) to get to work!

  9. Wasn't back to school at our house, but first day EVER at school. My 3 year started preschool, week three and there are still tears. The teachers swear to me she stops about after 10 minutes. Oh and a funny side note she would only eat her lunch, up until today, if the teacher fed it to her!

  14. I'm a follower and a twitterer. Love your blog.
    My back to school story is about me. This was a long time ago, but it wouldn't happen today. We must have had 7 kids on my block that all walked to school together. That's right. We walked about 8 blocks, even in 1st grade. On the first day, all the parents were out with their movie cameras taking pictures of us as we went down the sidewalk, meeting up with the kids from the next house, all of us swinging our new lunch boxes. We still have that movie, and I have since put it on a VCR. Inspires me to go have a look again.

  20. I remember my first day of Jr High...(do they even HAVE Jr High anymore??). After Geometry class I headed to my locker, gathered my books for homework and headed outside to board the bus home. BUT...there were no buses. I stood there for what seemed liked hours before I realized I had one more class before school was out... I hurried back to the doors, but they were locked, (from the outside only). I had to bang on the doors until a nearby teacher heard me and let me in. I was of course late to class and had to stand in front of the class and tell why... I was mortified...

  30. I remember walking to school with my sisters and the first day of school it always seemed like such a long walk. Probably was a long walk compared to what kids walk now or what I would think woudl be OK for my own kids to walk!! But I have lots of good memories of walking to and from school...my 2 sisters and I would set off and pick up anywhere between 5 and 7 kids along the way. Fun times!
    Thank you for hosting an amazing giveaway, Im proud to be one of your 1000 sales!

    You wanted a back to school story: My 3rd child entered Kindergarten this year at it hit me harder than I expected it to. On his first day, he was all settled in his seat, coloring on his first school project. he looked up at me with sweet blue eyes and told me to leave! He was ready for school. I cried the whole way home.

  41. My back to school story is that I'm completing my final internship in an elementary school before completing my Master's degree in education. The more exciting thing is that I'm interning at my old elementary school and my grade's team leader was my very own 3rd grade teacher! It's been a great back to school experience for me! :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. A back to school story...hmmm...my little guy just started 1st grade this year and it is his first full-day experience. He loves it, looks forward to it every day, talks non-stop on the way home about every little detail especially lunch! After his first day of school, I asked him what he had for lunch and he told me, then I asked him what he had to drink and he said...I could pick from orange juice, white milk or chocolate milk and I picked the one in the red carton, but it was white milk and I thought it would be chocolate. So I asked him what color carton the chocolate milk came in, and he looked at me with the most unbelieving look on his face and said BROWN! Can you believe it...chocolate milk comes in a brown carton! That didn't seem to make any sense to him at all. But now he knows.

    Once again, fabulous giveaway! Glad your sales are going well!

  56. Wow! Awesome giveaway, very generous! I follow and read on my googlereader :) I brought my 3 year old to his preschool and he likes it but really doesn't get that he has to leave his shoes on even though he is inside and there is CARPET! Those preschool teachers must think I'm really vigilant about the shoes in the house rule.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yay!! I love giveaways! OK....we homeschool so our big back to school story is about the first day of school---it is ALWAYS a field trip! It's a great way to kick off the new school year!

  70. My back to school story began like this. My daughter stood at her financial aid office line for hours only to be told when they opened up that only 20 students would be seen on that they. The security guards told her to come the next day at 4 am ( yep, you read that tight)to start the line.
    I called abc action news since this was unheard of to stand outside at 4am to pay your tuition. The news arrived for 2 days in a row and every student was able to pay their tuition on time without being dropped. That is how my school year started.
    Great giveaway and congratulations on all your sales. I signed up as a follower too.

  81. I follow your blog on Google Reader. I started 1st grade 55 years ago. The sight/smell of a brand new box of crayons, new pencil and fresh new tablet still remains with me to this day. I remember my first day of school like it was yesterday. I had a new black and white check dress with a white blouse underneath and have a photo of me and my older brother on our front steps before school. We walked 4 blocks to school most mornings and many times home for a hot cooked lunch as well. And this year my only granddaughter started first grade as well. She had the same excitement about the first day and her new school supplies as I did! I was so happy to see that excitement about learning.

  82. My baby went to preschool for the first time this week. Never did I think that at 2 years old my boy would be so brave and strong!! He is definitely not his mama. He ran right in and joined in the fun, never looking back to see who he was leaving behind. Thankfully he was overjoyed to see me at the end of the morning and gave me the biggest hug ever. Bittersweet.

  87. My own back to school story: In fourth grade, we moved to a NEW town and I hadn't had a chance to make any new friends before the school year because we were out in the country with no other kids around. I decided I would wear this outrageous outfit, NEON green shirt, NEON pink, orange and green tiered skirt, two different socks NEON green and pink, NEON pink and green bows above my two pigtails. It did NOT go well. Ugh! What was I thinking!?

    ReplyDelete
  88. We are back at school, here at home. I homeschool my 2 children-1 1st grade and 1 preK. I am loving it! I love watching my children grasp a concept and know that I helped do that. A great accomplishment for me was teaching my daughter to read, it helped me realize that I can teach my children.
    I hope I receive a gift!! I am new to quilting and trying to build my stash for Xmas projects!

  89. Wow! What a haul! I'd love to win.
    Back to school story- When I was between the years of 8-11, I would plan out my first day of school outfit. Ok actually I did this every year for the first day of school. But during those years I took it one step further and laid them all out on the floor like I would wear them. So it looked like a chalk drawing filled in with clothes. Accessories included. It was fun. Thanks for the giveaway.

  96. My first grader (first whole day of school ever!) had homework on the first day of school with a couple of days to complete it. It was an "about me" type worksheet. It asked for her name, phone number, favorite activities etc. Then she came to the line "I live at: _______." and ofcourse she wrote 'home' instead of her address. :)

    I followed the flickr link to your blog at designer swappy-poo. I'm adding you to my list of blogs to follow. Thanks!

  97. Hey,
    Your crayon wallets are so cute and so is your shop! Congrats on 1000 sales, that's amazing! (By the way, I have a little Etsy shop too, hope you'll stop by) I don't have any back to school stories either. Well, my husband's a teacher and he started back to school so now I hardly see him until the weekend! But that's not really a funny story, is it. I'll sign up to follow you too. Congrats again!

  98. Congratulations on 1000 sales. My school story is that my only daughter fell asleep on the school bus on the way home and no one noticed until the bus driver was sweeping the bus back in the bus garage - NOT EVEN HER OLDER BROTHER! This event of twenty years ago still upsets me when I think about it.

  118. Popped over from swappy poo to say congratulations on 1000 sales! Well my back to school story is from the other side so to speak. As a secondary school teacher I love the start of term when I see all the students coming in to school in their new shiny uniforms - the look so good, especially the littles. The other thing I enjoy doing is looking through my class lists for the most unusual/best name! Thanks for such a cool giveaway xx

  124. Back to school story? Well, I don't have kids, so no cute stories there. And when I think back to my first days of school it was just exciting to get all the new clothes and supplies and see all my friends again. So every year when I go to Wal-Mart and there are all the notebooks, crayons, pens and pencils, etc. staring at me, I just want to buy a bunch of it even though I have no one to buy for:)

    ReplyDelete
  125. Kiwi and pink please!
    Back to school story: I remember when I was going into sixth grade. I saved my babysitting money to buy new outfits and shoes for myself as money was tight in our family. I was so proud of the purchases I bought and can still remember most of them...pink shorts, a white top with blue sea shells on, white nike shoes with a pink swoosh and a white-pink-blue barrett. Funny how I remember my back-to-school purchases from so long ago. I was so proud to help out my family and to be so self-sufficient.

  128. Terri,
    Going back to school is a regular event for me as I am a kindergarten teacher by profession- For 32 years I have opened my classroom to 4 and 5 years with bright eyes, smiles, tears ( often on the moms and dad who entrust me with their precious cargo for the next 10 months) Each year is the same and it is different- the newness and the anticipation and busyness is always the same- Each class has a different flavor and it still is enjoyable and exciting each fall.

    It is a lovely giveaway that you are hosting- Congratulations on your successful etsy business- it is an accomplishment that you can be proud of.
    Regards from a Western Canadian quilter,
    Anna

  131. Yay!! I really want a carryall clutch--Purple Blooms is my favorite!

    Yesterday was the first day of the homeschool co-op where I teach--the room I was in was very distracting to one little boy in particular. Anyone would be distracted, though. There is seriously a playground and big yellow slide in the room! It was very interesting to teach history in that environment. =)

  137. My school story happened years ago. The very first day I started school also happened to be my birthday. I cried and cried because I wanted to celebrate my birthday I didn't want to go to school.

  138. Wow! Congratulations! THat is fantastic! I always wondered how people did on etsy with fees and everything. Glad to hear you are successful. Great prizes. My youngest just left for her first year of college so no more school stories. I'm loving my time alone with hubby...after 30 years..I'm so ready!

  140. Congratulations on 1000 sales!

    Back to school story: Well, we homeschooled for 17 years and loved it! We've been finished for a few years now, but every September I remember my "back to school speech" I gave the kids each year. And we still call our former schoolroom...the schoolroom! I guess it will always hold some terrific memories.

  141. Congratulations on your sales! I'm a follower. As a kid, I loved school. It meant getting new shoes and new crayons and a new Red Chief tablet...(yes..that's a long time ago!)

  143. This is "sew" special! I follow you also. Although it's more years than I care to remember...the best part of back to school was the friendships and seeing everyone again. Will be posting link now!

  144. Well, in my house three out of four of us go to school every day, so back to school brings on the groans from all of us except my husband--he does the "Staples" dance and laughs for two weeks before the return date. I teach high school, our daughter is a sophomore in college, and our son is in the seventh grade this year! I will say that my husband does stop laughing when we actually drop our daughter off at college and school starts because the relaxed days and meals on the table are filled with school schedules and him cooking more than he cares too--but I love it! That is my back to school story! Great giveaway--Thank you for the chance to win!

  146. My kids are all grown with kids of their own. With 5 of them back to school was always fun. What wasn't fun was the year when I had three graduations in three different schools in different parts of town!

    Have an awesome day!

  147. Who could not love this blog....the music this morning has me bopping in my chair....and the graphics are fun too.

    Hey if I win some fabric for enjoying myself....wow....that would be a bonus :)

    Back to school story....my son, Zach, started kindergarten this year. I packed some strawberries in his lunch and he came home with them. I asked why he did not eat them. Zach says, "my friend Max, is allergic." Creative little mind he has. Then he said, Jack ate his treat and he wanted another one after school. The best part is....there are no students by those names in his class. LOL

    Smiles,

  149. My back to school story involves sending my youngest of five off to college with his very own Yankee quilt. He saw a picture of a quilt he liked and asked that it be transformed to recognize his favorite baseball team. I have to say it turned out great!

    I'd love to win some of those fat quarters--at this point, I'll never live long enough to finish all of the quilts I want to make!

  150. No wild stories I can think of... I have to do a lot of work just to get ready since my 2nd grader has food allergies...Last weeks photos didn't turn out so we do need to do another first day photo. Congratulations!

  154. Back to school - so long ago......

    I do remember that I loved the fresh, pencils, paper and crayons. Mmm and the taste of school glue, good thing that was non-toxic! LOL.

    I remember going to fourth grade. The very last day of 3rd grade I got my first pair of glasses. So almost none of my school mates had seen me in glasses on the first day of school. I thought I looked so different. I remember how disappointed I was that everyone recognized me.

  157. What a delightful giveaway. Count me in.

    Here is my Back To School Story:

    I attended BFF Back To School at Cozy Quilt Shop. Great demonstrations and a way to get excited about fall classes. I've mapped out several classes for my availability and areas I want to learn more. I'm officially in the back to school mode this year. And I'm trying to encourage others to do the same (take classes at their local quilt stores, online, adult ed, etc.).

  158. YOur blog is such fun - and your etsy shop - wow congratulations!!!!

    Every summer I was sent away for the whole vacation, to stay with friends of the family -different friends each year. I would come home the day before school started and have to wash and dry and iron all my clothes and get my supplies. I loved the summers away - but I also loved school so was excited when it came time to get back home for the first day of school.
