we love our teachers

our kids sure have been blessed with some amazing teachers this year. we feel so blessed. each of them have enjoyed school and thrived in their classes. we owe this to teachers who love the lord first and for most and then love our children. i enjoy giving gifts so this was a perfect time to show my appreciation for all they have done.

these first two photos (were taken at night, so the lighting is bad) are for garrets teacher, Mrs. Marshall and the office staff at his school, Doak Elementary. i found this idea for the A&W root beer thank you on a blog that i cant find again right now. i will still keep looking for it and let you know later.
i also found these cute canvas totes at the DOLLAR STORE! love that place and painted each of the teachers initials on the bag.

the kids helped me make a jar of SUGAR SCRUB for each of their teachers. it was SUPER easy to make. i will give you directions in an upcoming post.

the bags needed a little dressing up so i made these fabric rosettes and hot glued them to the bags.
it was all really fun to make. this is the kind of stuff that gets me through the week. doing little projects, especially ones that are for amazing ladies.

We actually did the sugar scrub and the rosette pins too. Thanks for the great ideas at MOPS!

Sooo cute, but too late for me to use :( I'll try to remember it for another time though. You have a great knack for taking an idea and making it even better
