Back To School!!

Hello! My name is Gwendolyn Garcia, also known as shop seller GwendolynForever on etsy! Crazy, but YES! it is that time of year again... summer has flown by like a dream, there is a crispness in the breeze and a chill at night, the leaves are beginning to take flight in a brown and amber spiral dance of Autumn wind... more and more apples and winter squashes at the Farmer's Market, and a newsletter from school... It is Back-To-School Time again! Of course, I have fond memories of Back-To-School shopping as a child. Brand new binders, folders, paper, pencils, and a few new things to keep me warm and presentable for my first day of school... Fun! Here are a few handmade items that bring the FUN back to Back-To-School shopping... items that are sweet and enduring enough to carry the nostalgia of Autumn and School Days through-out the years. A love for quality that lasts and eye-candy that stimulates creative thoughts, learning, and dreams... we teach our children valuable lessons by how we choose to spend our money: Handmade, High Quality, and Beautiful... Timeless Values that we can pass on to our young buy purchasing hand-crafted items from talented sellers like these... Enjoy!
