I’m lovin’ It Wrap Up – Great ideas {8}


So last week was high school registration! I can’t believe school starts back in 8 days! And my youngest will be a sophomore!  How did THAT happen?  It’s still WAY too hot here, they should hold classes at the pool!   I’m still not baking much {did you notice I had NO food posts last week?}, but I’ve come up with some easy “beat the heat” recipes I’ll be sharing next week.  

Many of you have been busy baking, and creating!  I love looking thru your posts every weekend!

    Love your wrap-up! That lemon cake in a jar is calling my name. Good luck with all your back-to-school preparations! Can you believe how fast the summer is flying by?

    I love the “wrap-up”… it shows me some of the great ideas that I might have missed. I really appreciate you featuring my daycare room/home office space :o)

    Thanks for featuring my Chocolate Chalkboards. I made these for end of the year teacher’s gifts, but you can write anything on the chalkboards to make them fun school treats or gifts for teachers anytime of year.

      Those look so incredibly cute {and relatively simple}, that I wish I had children just to give these to teachers.

    I am obsessed with the idea of baking things individually in jars. I think these will be my Christmas gifts to friends and family this year, they’re so cute, and the handled jars can be reused as mugs!

    I also like to re-purpose furniture like that, but yours looks awesome!!
