2012 Teacher Ornament

I wanted to come up with a very special gift for my daughter's teacher - she has been her teacher for 3 grades. She was her teacher for Kindergarten  grade 3 & now grade four. Although she has a new name this year as she got married the same weekend as my sister!! 
However this is also the last year my little girl will be in elementary - next year will be middle school :(

Here is what I came up with:

 The front
The back

I put it all together in a heat & serve Tupperware container, I ordered a cool wooden ruler that says 'Mrs. Thompson Measures Up', and a stamp from the desk of Mrs. Thompson - from Pick your plum of course :)  I included some dark chocolates for her from Purdy's... mmmmmm - Yes I am a firm believer in spoiling our teachers, after all they are responsible for caring for my children while they are at school and not with me! 
I believe my daughter has been VERY blessed with the TWO, yes, only two teachers she has had in the last 5 years of school! 
I couldn't have hand picked anyone better suited to teach her!

Till next time,

Christmas Cheer

I have been SO busy with getting everything ready for the holidays - I haven't had time for blogging...
Well I've been checking up on other's posts, but haven't had much time for my own.

Today I had a few moms over to help me make the teacher's gifts for my daughter's elementary school. We have almost 50 staff there, so we make 55 to be sure no one is missed. If there is a sub in, it spreads wonderful Christmas cheer!

I have the birthday candies set - can be used for more than just birthday parties :)
I used the present, star, 'thank you' and 'celebrate' - all perfect for Christmas time!

 The snowman soup stamp set has been revamped into a new fresh form - it's linked at the bottom
This is from the old stamp set by Jaded Blossom

We made snowman soup :)
Hot chocolate - I made a card to put 2 packs into
Candy canes - French Vanilla & Cappachino 
Jaded Blossom stamps - Christmas WishesSnowman poopBirthday Candy

Jaded Blossom's Birthday Celebration

Hi there, I am so excited to be a guest designer for Jaded Blossom.
Thank you so much for stopping by - I am truly honored to be a part of wishing Jaded Blossom a very happy birthday!!

For my project today I wanted to make a cookie exchange invitation! 

Cookie sheet - Fancy Topper die 
Sentiment - Cookie Exchange
Gigerbread cut outs - Cricut Gingerbread cart
Peachy Keen faces
Stampin up very vanilla cardstock
Recollections 6x6 paper - Sugar Plums

I also wanted a cute package to put it all together so I made an apron box. I saw an idea like this on Pinterest, but never pinned it - lol. So I free handed most of the cuts, with a little trail & error, and this is what I came up with.

Sentiment -Cookie exchange
AC cardstock for the base - I needed it to be very sturdy
Recollections paper - Sugar Plums 12x12 stack
Crinkle ribbon - 3Girl Gam
8 recipe cards purchased from Michaels
The little spatula I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond

I hope you enjoyed my project.
Please leave a comment below - I love reading them!
