It's starting to feel like the seasons are turning here in New Zealand and we are so ready for the end of winter.
We have got a lot to look forward to for the rest of the year, from travel to graduations ... and hopefully it's all going to be good!
And appropriately, that is the theme of this week's kit new in store at The Lilypad: If you are looking for school themed elements but don't need the papers, the elements are available as a separate pack as well. I love design
The school year here in New Zealand starts in February and ends in December, just a few days before Christmas.
It makes things very straightforward: the school year is the calendar year. Although it means we have our long summer break while the weather is often still pretty patchy and they go back into class just as it gets reliably hot and sunny in February.
But I am aware that right now, on the other side of the world, it's a time of sharpened pencils and new backpacks.
