Teacher Just a Note Notebook

Teacher Just a Note Notebook

Today was the first day of school for my kids.  I wanted to create a little something for the teachers so I went with something useful.  I stamped up little notebooks for them to use throughout the year.  I did get a little grief from a friend who works at a school about my use of apples. Apparently, teachers get tired of all the apple-themed gifts.  Who knew?  I guess I can understand as I think more about it though.  Hopefully the teachers weren’t like, “oh no, more apples!” =)

Crayon Bouquet

This darling Crayon Bouquet is something I wanted to share since last spring–and the timing seems perfect with the start of school!

Pirate Birthday Party Favors

  It’s a Pirate Birthday Party for my twins this year. First of all, I’m shocked that I’m still able to do a joint party–since they are boy/girl twins.  But more shocking to me is that my daughter is the one who chose this year’s theme!  My son was more than happy to go along … Read more Pirate Birthday Party Favors

Hair Accessory Organizer
