It's that time of year again!
The summer is finally winding down and parents are rejoicing as kids get ready to go back to school. We know you love them, but it's nice to not have them hanging around the house all day right? After an amazing vacation and summer, its time to get the books, backpacks, and pencils out and ready because come September - it's officially back to school season!
Any parent knows that it's hard to let your child go on the first day of Kindergarten. Their anxious, you're anxious...Don't worry they will be perfectly fine! Elementary school teachers are some of the best around. Pretty soon they are going to be learning their ABC's and 123's, and running home to tell you all about their day. And it does get easier watching them get on the school bus or walking through the school's front doors...Believe me! Before you know it, they'll be in high school and getting ready to leave for college.

For most people, college is the time to finally break away and live on your own. What better way to state your independence than to decorate your dorm or apartment exactly the way you want it?! Paint the walls the color you've always dreamed of (make sure it's ok with your college first please) and buy that crazy colored comforter set you have always wanted. Don't forget about art on your walls though! We have everything from bright and colorful, to elegant black and white photographs. Looking to keep calm during the semester? Impress your roommates and new friends with a huge statement piece such as our "Keep Calm and Carry On" artwork that we offer in numerous sizes.

Most schools and colleges offer a study abroad program. If they offer it... take it! You won't regret it. For one semester you'll be living and going to school in a new place and meeting completely new people. Ride a gondola while you study in Venice, climb the Eiffel Tower after your class in Paris, or visit the sites in London when you get some down time. Some Colleges even offer a student exchange program in which you live with a host family. With this option, you'll be totally engulfed in the life, language and traditions of the country that you are studying in.
