30 Days Hath September…

 There are lots of exciting things coming up in these next thirty days!
One of which is that Little Crafter will be starting preschool!
We decided that for this year, at least, I’m going to be teaching him at home.  I figure since I’ve made the sacrifice to put my dancing career on hold to stay home with him, I might as well capitalize on that time we have together.  It will give me a chance to use some of that teacher training I have, and it will also save us some money too, which is always a plus.
We are officially starting on Tuesday, but we got his “classroom” all set up this afternoon.
He helped me pick out this big wall calendar that we’re going to use to learn about days/months/time.  Each day he gets to put a number up in the correct spot.  We’re also going to be learning about Fall.

He’s obsessed with his special Cars pencils and today we got some cute Dr. Seuss erasers to go on them.  I love how serious and studious he looks here putting one on…
 He likes to call this his “office.”  We’re all ready to go; pencils, pencil holder, “computer,” crayons, workbooks, desk…it’s only a matter of time.  And, boy, is he excited!
Some other things to look forward to this month:
The Falling for Crafts Challenge will officially begin!
Based on popular opinion, I’ll post new challenges on Fridays.  The following day, I’ll post features from the previous week’s challenge.  Now I just have to decide whether to start this coming Friday {tomorrow!} or wait until next week when it’s after Labor Day.  Thoughts?
And finally, get ready for The Great Giveway Weekend!
I’ve been promising a giveaway series when I hit 200 followers.  I only need 5 more to reach that magic number.  I’m hoping to have hit it by my 6-month “blogaversary” which will be September 17.
Sooo…the weekend of the 17-19, we’re going to celebrate, One Artsy Mama style.
I have 3 great giveaways lined up from other bloggers so far, plus of course there will be one from my shop.
If anyone else is interested in sponsoring a giveaway, let me know; there’s always room for more!
Well, I’d say we have a lot to look forward to, don’t you think?  I’m excited and I’m so glad you’re along for the journey!  Happy September…here’s hoping the next 30 days are just fantastic!
