Teacher Appreciation Gift

Teacher Appreciation Gift

I just LOVE going through the 1.00 section at Target that they put right in front of the store. I find the cutest things for crafting and homeschooling in this section. Last week I found these pencil containers there and was so excited! They are too cute! I wrapped them with school papers from MAMBI and used 3D dimensional school stickers. Wrapped it up with raffia and ribbon. I wrote "You are mint to teach" thank you for being my teacher.
Inside the container I put mint candies. The teacher's loved them!!! 

Mother's Day Pin Cushion Gift

Flat Stanley Goes to Seattle, Washington Layout

My son Jayden received a Flat Stanley in the mail from his cousin Tanner who lives in Colorado. We had so much fun with him =D

Here is all about what Flat Stanley is: 

Stanley Lambchop and his younger brother Arthur are given a big bulletin board by their Dad for displaying pictures and posters. He hangs it on the wall over Stanley's bed. During the night the board falls from the wall, flattening Stanley in his sleep. He survives and makes the best of his altered state, and soon he is entering locked rooms by sliding under the door, and playing with his younger brother by being used as a kite. One special advantage is that Flat Stanley can now visit his friends by being mailed in an envelope. Stanley even helps catch some art in an art museum thieves by posing as a painting on the wall. Eventually Arthur changes Stanley back to his proper shape with a bicycle pump.

Year of the Dragon

Ni hao and welcome to the Chines New Year Blog Hop! This hop is in honor of Guan, the little boy April's family is adopting from Taiwan. To celebrate his culture, we want to share some Chinese-inspired projects with you! 
If you arrived here from Maria's Blog then you are in the right place! If you just joined us, please go back to April's blog to see everyone's amazing creativity!

For my project, I created a "Red Envelope"

It is custom for elders to give a gift of money to a child for New Year's in a red envelope. By doing so it is to bring you and the child good luck, prosperity and happiness. The color red is a symbol of happiness. Traditional red envelopes are often decorated with gold Chinese characters like happiness and wealth. There is a custom way to give and receive this red envelope as well. When giving someone a red envelope, use both hands to present the red envelope to the recipient. The red envelope is also received with both hands.The recipient of a red envelope at Chinese New Year or on his or her birthday should not open it in front of the giver. This is for respect. 

We have some great blog candy to offer from April Nourse and PSA Essentials.
