I do like to indulge myself a bit, though, during this yearly ritual . Although I rely on standards (Crayola, Ticonderoga) for my children with perhaps a bit of a twist (Pratt student-designed pencil cases), I take carte blanche with my own school supplies.
The other week at Kate's Paperie on W 57th I bought the above and far-below file folders (so very professorial no?), as well as an oversized letter (about 2 feet tall; 1 inch deep) to decorate for my office (and bought my children each one too).
Perhaps with a sheet of wrapping paper from Kate's?:
I also bought an academic calendar (uncharacteristically but unabashedly pink), and a mouse pad made up of weekly calendars. I stuck a magnet on the back and affixed the pad to my fridge (can I call this project an iPad?). Whatever we call it, the week at a glance keeps me sane.
So now we have all this glorious paper and are patiently waiting for the school year to begin.
