Actually thinking ahead!

My sister told me about Scrappy Notes a while back when I saw her cute notepad and I just had to have one myself. So, I went online to Scrappy Notes and ordered myself a cute notepad with my kids on it.

This is the vellum cover with my kids.
You can choose from over 150 different heads with different hair styles and colors, bows, hats, etc. And you can get so many different styles - gummed, perforated, bow, no bow, etc.

This is at the bottom of each individual perforated page! Such fun!!
Kylee got the first note for her teacher off the pad. She was so excited! When I gave her the note she said, "Circle the head of me so she knows it's about me!" What a silly girl - it's HER teacher! :) But I obliged.


Then I got a brilliant idea and bought these:

I will use them for end of the year teacher gifts! Use a little fun school-themed ribbon and tie on a personalized pen and Voila! Instant great gift and personalized! Who doesn't love that!?!?! YEA for me for thinking ahead!! 2 months ahead!! WOW!

I ordered them on March 3 and they came within 1 week! And great cust. svc. too! I had ordered some others for friends (great b-day gifts!) and had misspelled someone's name. They answered the phone (sounds like just a Mom running it out of her home) and was super nice! Fixed it and no questions asked. Scrappy Notes! Check 'em out!!
