Howdy guys, how ya been?
My house is getting back to normal after the past week with the threat of Tropical Storm Isaac
Thank goodness it scooted up the coast and stayed far out in the the gulf
We DID get ALOT of rain and wind
I actually got to run durning an hour when
it wasn't raining but the wind was ridiculous.
I think I burned a million more calories
Anywhoo, with school starting around the country
(it's been back in gear here for a week already),
I thought I would share with you how I pimped out Kricket's backpack
I try to buy her a backpack that's gonna last her a couple years but that usually means that she doesn't get a backpack that's cool like the other kids
This year I told her to just pick a color and we would "pimp it out"
We found her a Swiss Gear backpack at Sam's for $20
Then we headed to Michael's with a bunch of 40% coupons in hand where Kricket
I started by adding her name. Just followed the directions and ironed them on
Next, she wanted to cover up the metal Swiss Gear emblem (I don't blame her)
so she picked a heart and now ... no more emblem
She then chose which other decals she wanted to add
Then I added the rhinestones. They have the kind of backs that have to be bent so they stay nice and secure. I made sure that there were no "backs" that could poke her
SO cute, right?
It needed a little more and viola, it's done
Now she has a personalized backpack that she can be proud of
for very little money
The fun part is she can add more decals as the year goes on
Did you know that I was on Facebook?
