Yes, please do not adjust any visual aides or computer screens...it is ME...back from the techno wasteland that has been my house. The upside of having NO INTERNET connection for a week is that I got to craft heaps!
Today I am going to share with you the gifts I did for my children's teachers this year. My son had the same teacher last year (nuts) so I could not drag out the old staples for her! Both teachers received a pizza box filled with handmade gift tags. This is what they looked like.....
My son's teacher received a gift that I have seen around the blog traps a bit in the form of an altered picture frame that is made into a whiteboard. This one was an 8 x 10 inch frame. My son told me she loved blue hues, so that was my starting point.......
The new Blossom Party Originals die really got a work out!! I continued the swirly flourish under the glass by giving the old faithful Baroque Motifs an airing. It was one of the very first SU sets I purchased...and it worked OK I think??
My daughter's teacher received my old Christmas standby....stamped candles. I think they make such a delightful gift and have a wonderful wow factor. I found a GORJUS decorative reindeer stamp in my local craft hangout and could not pass it by. This was the result.....
...and how pretty is this reindeer???
I have some more Christmas things to share with you. Thanks for popping by.
