Friday's Top 10 Etsy Buys!! - 5th Edition - Back to School!

It's back to school time!! Getting my kids ready to go back to school is quite a task. From the uniforms to the notebooks, it seems as though the list will never end. I have been going through this back to school ordeal now for 9 years, and I'm getting bored with same old supplies. I decided to see what my fellow Etsians had to offer. What do you know, Etsy sellers came through for me again!! Check out all of the unique and different school supplies I found this week:)

1. Covered Recycled cans NOW pencil holders - by ChicEMbellish (pictured above)

I love these!!! My kids are only allowed to take "certain" items to school, and of course super cute pencil holders are not on the list. However, I love these for our homework area. I think it makes doing homework less daunting:)

2. Blue on Blue, Art Smock sz 4/5 by StolenTime
Art Smocks! Thank goodness the days of dad's old dress shirt are over!! I love the cute patterns and the easy on/off feature. No more buttons up the back:)

3. Lunch Box Love Notes 1a by scrappyky

Seriously - are these not the cutest thing you have ever seen. It makes me want to pack a lunch for myself just so I can get one!

4. 9 x 11 Notebook Binder, Triple Crown, Blue Flower in Buttercream by CrownBindery
I love the paper choices used for this notebook/binder! And they are laminated!!!! Easy to clean and super durable - a definate must-have for school.

5. Wild Pink Mushrooms Reusable Sandwich Bag by littlegreenpea
I love the whole concept behind these reuseable lunch bags. I try to be as "green" as possible and this could really help. I use A LOT of Ziploc sandwich bags and of course we throw them away when we are done with them. I love the fact that I can throw these in the washing machine instead of the garbage! The cute fabric choices make lunches less boring and the velcro closure is simple to use. LOVE THESE!!!!

6. Princess No Germs Allowed Hand Sanitizer Soap - Back to School by NoFussFabulous
Ok, I know that this really isn't considered a "school supply", however, I have become a complete germ-a-phob! With 4 kids I FEAR germs. I firmly believe that this should be on the school supply list. And how cute is this??? A definate must-have for back to school!

7. Handmade Vintage Journal, Diary, Notebook, Sketchbook - Let's Talk by StoriesDivinations
This one is for me - I love the vintage! The images really take me back to my childhood. I love how some of the pages from the book are included in this notebook.

8. Sweet Venice Pencil (Pen) pouch by CranberryLover

All right, this one's for the kiddies! The fabrics are great, craftsmanship is spectacular! What a cute way to keep the kids stuff organized:)

9. Hannah the Owl Personalized Metal Lunch Box by myduckduckgoose

This lunch box is so cute! I love the owl and the personalization. I also love the fact that it doesn't feature a commercialized character - I have plenty of those!!

10. Scrap Fabric Barrettes-Orangesicle by flyingfrogapparel


Last but not definately not least - some adorable hair accessories! I love these handmade clips from one of my BNR buddies!! I love the fall colors and the back-to-school feel they give. You can really get the kiddies excited for school with a cute pair of hair pretties!
