I was going to splurge and get my boys a monogrammed backpack this year. However, I was in The Children’s Place and found these backpacks for $12! They boys asked for them and I thought, “That’s a no-brainer“. So I bought them and was a little bummed but moved on.
Then last week I was completed inspired by Mique’s back to school post where she not only monogrammed her kids backpacks herself but also made them some really cool tags too. I was back to being excited and drove over to Micheal’s that day (yes with all 3 boys) and they picked these iron-on letters for their backpacks. Yeah!! (I feel a lot better considering how many of these backpacks I saw at school today.)
So I got an e-mail from Mer who was inspired by my placemats. Don’t you think hers turned out so great! I really like the fabric she chose. She wanted to know how I frayed the edges and I e-mailed her back with pics and told her I cut all along the edges and then washed them.
I’m constantly inspired by you amazing ladies. What have you guys been inspired to do?

Those backpacks look GREAT, Laurie!!
What a great idea for the backpacks! Alas, we got a High School Musical backpack, so there was no room for her name! But next year!
As for inspirations, I’m always inspired by what others do! If nothing else, it motivates me to get off my duff and get something done!
