Getting Back to School

Getting Back to School

Being in the midst of a global pandemic is tough enough; but, adding going back to school is just beyond the scope of what we can comprehend right now. There are so many unknown variables and we want to ensure that our children and teachers are as safe as possible! As an educator, I have my personal views about returning to school, and living in a current hot spot of the influx of COVID-19 cases (South Carolina) certainly doesn’t help. However, we must remain positive about it all regardless. Our children and teachers are returning to school, and there’s no sense in making a bad situation worse with a negative attitude. Here’s to expecting that even with going through this challenge, we’ll all figure it out and do our best!

It is with great hope, that my second annual teacher gift giveaway will bring even just a tiny bit of joy to this back to school season! Last year, Meg’s Makings gave away four school-themed wreaths to teachers and it was so much fun! This year, we’re upping the anty a little with three levels of winnings!! Our first prize winner will receive a personalized pencil water bottle; second prize, a personalized crayon wreath; and for the grand prize, a teacher pack which will include a “Teach Love Inspire” tote, a “Grade Squad” t-shirt, and a personalized pencil glitter tumbler!

If you are a teacher or if you have a teacher who is near and dear to you, head over to any of the Meg’s Makings social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Snapchat) to enter for your chance to win any of these goodies! Best wishes to you all and to each of the teachers and students in your life.

Get Crafty!

By this point in the year, you have begun to find a sense of normalcy in your day to day activities in the wake of COVID-19. You’re starting to go out shopping again, you’re back at work, and maybe even engaging in some social activities (hopefully with social distancing and the wearing of masks). It is important to find hobbies and things that interest you to help you maintain mental and emotional balance. Guess what I suggest? Crafting of course! Using your hands is a great way to alleviate stress and focus your attention on something other than the mundanity of life.

“I’m not crafty”, you say. Oh, but you are! Though I love those things, crafting isn’t just about hot glue guns, scissors, and glitter. Crafting can simply be putting things together to create something new and beautiful (or not, if that’s your thing). Maybe you don’t paint, but you love to cook. Get in the kitchen and craft a new dish! You may not sew, but you can put together an amazing outfit with what’s in your closet. Go do that! Gather your friends on Zoom and have a fashion show, featuring you!

The point of it all is to do something that you love. Do something that inspires you and helps you to think outside of the box. Whatever it is, you can do it. Get crafty!

What would you do if you had $50, 000? Would you pay off your mortgage, your car loan, or student loan debt? Would you go on a vacation or even start the business you’ve been thinking about for a while? Whatever you’d choose to do, it would sure be nice to come into a large sum like that wouldn’t it?
