A Meaningful Teacher Gift

Hello out there!

I am not in rehab (yet), have not deserted and gone undercover (tempting) nor have I been SO busy I couldn’t blog (shame on me).

It’s more simple than that….life just went a bit out of control for awhile and blogging seems to be the first thing that gets tossed…that’s all!

I have TONS to post about but in my ever present desire to actually SCHEDULE a post…I am going to go slowly and try to live up to that goal.

After all…Haven is coming in August and I need to be ready…RIGHT?

Today, we get a guest post from my beautiful youngest daughter. I showed you her wonderful yard last Spring here.

Today I’m showing off her crafting skill! She has just finished a GORGEOUS craft room which you will see at some point in my POST SCHEDULING MISSION….but today you’ll see her VERY special end of the year teacher gifts she made!

She made these mini suitcase memory and gift tins…..THAT’S a mouthful…..

Take a peek!

  2. Well- now that you and Diana are back, I can run off!
    Of course you taught your daughter everything she knows.
    She must be the wittiest smart a** in town! Just like her Mama!
    And crafty, too. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Little Hunter is adorable.

  8. Those are adorable. What teacher wouldn’t want to receive a gift like that? Very original and a lot of thought went into it which makes it that much more special.
