My oldest daughter, Ava is going back to school next week, and although we have been very busy working here at Side by Side Design, I am shifting my focus for a minute to get her all ready for first grade. The designer in me never really turns off, however, and one of my favorite things to do growing up was to prep my supplies for the first day of school. There’s just something about brand new school supplies all packaged up that is so much fun … Am I right? I love when everything coordinates and picking a new color scheme each year. Just thought I’d share Ava’s go to items for first grade (and where to get them in case you need some inspiration this time of year).
