‘Twas the Night Before… School!


I originally thought that I was going to write this really creative adaptation of the traditional version of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, but rather it was going to be about school. Yet as I sit here at my computer right now I have decided that I am simply not going to.  I am too tired and I need to go to bed.  It is only 8 :52 but today was the first day of school and it has already kicked my bum.  So therefore, I am going to keep this post short and to the point.  No stories and no rambling.

On the night before school, at around 6:45 ish, Brian heard the doggies barking so he went to the door to check it out.  As he walked by, he saw a body running stealth like, away from our house and making a get-a-way into a car.  What is going on???  When he opened the door he found three adorable, personalized, Back to School Baskets on the door step.  He then realized that they can only be from one person, Aunt Danielle!!  Danielle, one of our nearest and dearest of almost twenty years, has recently began her new company titled, Color Me Happy.  Danielle is extremely passionate about, paper creations, parties, personalization, and people, so naturally she combined all of these interests into an amazing new business.  It began as Party Event Planning Company however it has grown wings and has now expanded into a company that offers many other exciting options.  These Back to School Baskets are just a teensy sample of her work.  She has a tremendous collection of offerings already!  She will soon be launching her website but in the meantime she is accepting orders for basically anything party related that you might have in mind.  If you have a dream, she can make it come true!

If you would like more information about Color Me Happy, please comment on the end of this post and I can send her contact information to you.

All of the Baskets contained fun school items to celebrate the big day!


The Baskets even had Matching P.J.’s for all of the kids to wear before their big day!
How cute is that???
