Teacher Gifts

Hi! Woohoo, it's Friday!!

I've got a pretty fun weekend planned: Mother's Day pampering for me tomorrow from DH and the kids (including a trip to the A Muse shop hopefully), kids staying the night with Grandma and Grandpa Saturday, KT Tunstall concert at the Moore Theater in Seattle, Church, Mother's Day celebration at my mom's, Mother's Day celebration at my MIL's and birthday celebration for my SIL too!!! Whew!! These are all fun things so I'm sure it won't seem too busy.

I thought I'd post some Teacher Appreciation gifts. We did a couple things throughout the week. The kids brought flowers one day, a store bought gift another day (personalized stuffed pig for one teacher and a Willow Tree mini Kindness plaque for another). The only things I made are these bracelets packaged in an Origami candy dish (made with SU DS papers)

and these mini notecard tins:

I think I need to prepare a little better next time so I can make a few fun and simple gifts for each day.

I just want to shout out a BIG thanks to all the teachers out there, I admire you for the devotion and kindness you show to our kids!! I know teachers don't get recognized or rewarded enough and they deserve SOOO much more for taking such good care of our kids!! Thanks for all you do!!!

Hugs and Blessings!!
