Jack had his last day of summer pre-school today. What am i going to do until September? I'll be growing more and more immobile and he'll be getting more and more bored! Ack!
I've really been so pleased with preschool this summer. Jack adores his teacher and during weeks that he does have school he asks to go or to go to "Ms Jill's house". The only downside in the fall is he goes 1 less day a week and only from 9-12 (as opposed to our summers 9-1). I'm heavily debating whether i should put him in more days or stick to the 2. Any suggestions?
ok... onto my teacher gifts. I made 6 knowing i'd need 5. There are a couple of other teachers that all work together with the classes so i wanted to be sure to thank them all, not just "Ms Jill". A friend of mine told me a simple gift idea she did at a stampin up demo party. She said cut some chipboard to 4x4 or 5x5 square. Cover the front and back with paper. Use a binder clip to hold a post it pad on. Cover the binder clip with a scallop circle and stamped image on a circle. Viola. So thats what i made! I believe they even used this cherry print from SU along with the cherry stamp from the tart n tangy set. I covered the back with real red cardstock (the same cardstock i used for my card base. Edges are inked with Colorbox Pigment Inks. And i punched out some photo corners using my SU punch out of real red and the scallop circle is also real red. I really was super pleased at how fast and easy this was to put together!
Any other questions, feel free to ask!
