School started on August 14th and it took me until August 15th to realize we have a problem.
My entry way turned into a dump site. Shoes, backpacks, binders and folders all went tumbling into a pile as soon as the kids got home. They were eventually sorted out and homework completed but then the backpacks, neatly packed, were tossed back on to the floor. After an incident involving my big toe and some colorful words, I decided this problem would need a solution!
Here it is:
I started with two document frames I picked up at a garage sale. I used pretty scrapbook paper and the Sizzix to punch out the kids' names.
If I do it again:
I wish I had a bigger space. I'm on the lookout for some hanging file folders or something that I can use for the kids to deposit papers that need to be signed and other "important" things for me to see. Right now my space is very limited so it has to be the size that stands upright, not lays on its side. Even then, I'm not sure it will fit.
