Back To School Organizing

Surface Go 2

With the coronavirus epidemic still looming, many students are having to choose between physical learning, virtual learning, or both, and staying safe through it all is the most important thing. Pupils of all age groups need to have the necessary mechanisms that follow many legislative guidelines. From having to wear masks and keeping a 6 foot social distance to acquiring the proper software to harness their education, finding out how to schedule a lifestyle changing routine during this outbreak can prove a bit challenging.

Being organized to prepare for your work is very pertinent and will help with step by step checklists including what you have on hand versus what you need. Make an agenda, planner, or something to keep track of the contents in them and find out the latest time you must have them.

Once that is established, you must find a means of acquiring the item(s). With the right tools you can successfully engage in yours or your child’s learning venture without spending too much money, and by “thinking outside the box”.

Sometimes you have to get creative. If you or your loved one(s) are enrolled in a hybrid learning environment, it would be helpful to have personal protection equipment (ppe) as part of your educational requisite. That would most likely include face masks, hand sanitizer, wipes, and maybe more gear. These along with your books, bags, clothing, and other supplies can be bought or made from various places, especially online.

The internet is a way to make purchases and reduce social contact with people. You can also get excellent do-it-yourself (diy) ideas on there for making your own ppe, clothing, and more.

Youtube and pinterest have great tips on how to make your own face masks. There are also videos on creating your own hand sanitizer. For convenience, you can even buy items in bulk that will last for a while during your school tenure. The web poses as a handy tool during this world wide epidemic, making shopping and crafting so much easier. Finding your means of necessities do not have to be painstaking.

You can have fun with it. Place some cute art work on your stuff. Jazz up your face masks with fashionable svg, png, and other text and images that can be printed and applied to fabric and various other materials. These such files can be found online on places such as etsy and Pixelscrapper.com

Try altering your notebooks, folders, book bags and more with cute graphics and fonts. Like to use planners or travel journals? If the steampunk theme is attractive to you, try adding a writing board to bring with you on your travels. These cardboard embellishments provide a hard surface for you to write on. Simply slide one behind your papers and start writing. No need to worry anymore about your journal book not being sturdy enough to write in.

You could also get fancy with your ink pens and other office supplies. Add some functionable bling to go along with your key chain, bookmarks, and other accessories. And don’t let your sense of fashion fall short. There is no shortage of trending styles available online. Sew your own with popular fabrics or find some great deals from your favorite vendors.

Either way, organize your school list with your happiest possessions. I hope this article was helpful.

Happy Crafting!

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
