Teacher's Gifts

Secret Pal Gift (KindergartenTeacher)
Hello friends!  How are you?  Me....I'm doing good - life has been really hectic.  Still settling in to the new job; but REALLY enjoying it.  The "admin" group rotates early Friday's from May through September, my first one was yesterday - I got to leave at 2 p.m.  :D  Delightful, I must say.

Friday was also the last day of school for our two little ones, so I picked up the oldest (she finished on Wednesday), then picked up the little ones from school, then we headed off to see Pirates of the Caribbean - they had no clue where we were going...once they figured that out, they didn't know what movie we were going to see.  Had a blast and they LOVED the movie.  Upon arriving home, our oldest said "Kaitlyn and I think Johnny Depp is H-O-T"; always fun having teenagers in the house eh?  Made me laugh.  I posted that comment on FB and I received several responses that it wasn't just my daughters that think he's H-O-T!  HA!

Kaitlyn's and Jared's teachers gifts
Since Friday was the last day of school, I made gifts for each of their teachers and also for my secret pal.  I gave them each 2 movie tickets and a little bottle/tube filled with mini M&M's.  The larger bottle used to hold Prima flowers - way to repurpose eh?  I just wrapped some paper around the bottle and tied on some ribbon.  Then I decorated the envie which holds the movie tickets to match.  The tubes are much smaller, so I strictly decorated the envie on those and wrote our thank you note on the back of the envie.  Worked out great.

For all 3 gifts, I used PTI's Teacher's Apple and Take Note stamp sets; love how they turned out; hope the teacher's liked them too!

Have a great weekend; see you Monday, Tuesday AND Wednesday with MORE creations!

...m&m's and mouthfuls of popcorn...

Hugs, ~M.

Nice gifts! I had a fun time looking at the picture before the last one: apparently you flipped the picture, I thought you had somehow stamped the sentiment in reverse!

What a great idea Michele! And repurposing to boot, pretty darn good! I don't have any kids but this would just be a nice thank you gift for a friend. Glad you are enjoying your new job!
