What do you TREASURE?

One of the great parts of Etsy is the TREASURY section. This is where regular shopowners like us get to be the curators and put together unique items that we think are special. We chose the theme... the idea is all ours.Well, in 'celebration' of back to school the Charmed Styles treasury is Unsuspecting Tested Teacher's Tools. You can check it out here. If you look at the items and you're a teacher, then you'll understand immediately what each item is for. If you're not a teacher... there's some splaining to be done. I won't explain each one...

the beanie/tam/hat is for bad hair days especially during the winter. Since I'm a natural chica (Joy is as well and so is Melody of OriganallyMel) our hair might be damp in the morning. We don't want to risk getting sick and everyone knows part of feeling good is looking good. Sounds vain, but its true.

Another unsuspecting item in the treasury... typing gloves... LOL... WHAT? Sometimes its really cold.... and it IS really difficult to type and maneuver the computer when you have all the material wrapped around your fingers.

An apron is pretty obvious, but don't worry. I don't wear it everyday. Not that anything is wrong with that. I just like to have an apron hand in case I wear a skirt with no pockets or white pants.

Hawk Medicine Bag
The Hawk is our school mascot. The items in medicine bags are for calming, soothing, and protecting purposes. TING*

This button is awesome!
I also listed Red Apple Fragrance lotion, Know it All pencils (too cute), a clipboard with a positive affirmation, LIP BALM LIP BALM LIP BALM, an ouch pouch (first aid kit), apple earrings (adorable), red hoop earrings (gotta have hoops), a charm bracelet, and note cards.

Let me explain the blank note cards. If nothing else, every teacher should walk away with at least THIS as a piece of advice: always keep blank cards handy. I don't know about you, but it's nearly impossible for me to try to keep up with all of my students birthdays, but when they come in and one of the friends announces it to the world (you know they will) quickly write them a note on the card and give it to them at the end of class. Take 2 mins to decorate the card w/markers, stickers OR computer clipart and I assure you they will LOVE it. They also love this as a random reward. They really do appreciate the simple things.

Alright, dolls.... that's its for the CHARMING life the Sunday Edition....

NC, did you enjoy your tax free weekend??
