1. I found a great blog with lots of crafty ideas. I was excited to find it and wanted to pass on the goodness. It is called Skip to My Lou. I found this teacher gift idea here. If you are desparate for a quick idea, their are a million on the net and so many great blogs.
2. Don't be afraid to copy people. If you have a crafty bone in your body, even a little one, you can craft. If you're blogging give credit where credit is due. Sometimes I come up with an idea myself but mostly I'm a good copy cat. Everything can be adapted too. You've heard me complain about my lack of crafty supplies here in my town so I adapt a lot. This gift originally had a cute colored tin pot, twine, and a silk flower. I only bought the gloves, seeds, and pot and then used what I had on hand. The original idea had a chalkboard label which is a brillant idea but I grudgingly don't have a Silouhette so I make due with a mod podged paper label. Someday, people, someday. :)
For a quick run down, I printed out the label on regular computer paper and printed out the saying on a brown lunch sack. I crinckled the saying and distressed the edges then stapled it to a couple packets of seeds. I used hot glue to adhere the ribbon and the flowers and mod podged the label on. It was super quick and only cost about 5 dollars.
3. This boy who I adore is growing up on me. Today is his last day of 1st grade. He has grown so much this year. I am proud of him and love him so much. He is sweet, sensitive, inquisitive, and so smart. Now onto a summer of fun and loving having him home.
Beezie and his teacher. Love you bud!!
