Teacher Gifts

This is a little late post, but here are the gifts that my girls did for their teachers.
My first grader wanted to give her teacher a basket of gifts and then give the student teacher something.

We did a bundle of pencils

She painted a frame and we put a cute 
picture of her and her teacher in it..

She made her a clip board, I let her pick out the paper and she antiqued the edges..she had so much fun making it for her teacher.

cute saying with goldfish

This is what it looked like all put together, 
her teacher LOVED IT!!!

She made the student teacher a clipboard also 
with a cute card and chocolate bar.

My daughter that is in Middle School, made 
these for her teachers. Clipboards and fishies.

We did this for her coach, "I SKOR-ED BIG getting 
you as a coach". WE made a cute envelope and inserted a SKOR bar, 
with a sweet note.

My daughter in 1st grade wanted to give all of her classmate something, to thank them for being her friends. So, as a last minute things we put together little notes attached them to an airhead candy.

For the crossing walk "DUDE" we put together a little note "Thanks for BEE-ing the BEST cross walking DUDE"!!! (my daughters own words)
attached a bag of brown and yellow M & M's for a "BEE" effect.

Making The Dresser Come Back To Life.......

I found this beauty at Goodwill the other day for 39.99. I fell in love with the knobs. I couldn't wait to get it home and start playing. I got it home and started sanding it...then I needed to find out what color. It is going in my daughters (6 years old) room, so I let her choose...PINK, PINK, PINK......


Love the old knobs


this is my sander I use and I LOVE IT!!!

I used Krylon spray paint, PINK BURST

My daughter then said she wanted flowers ALL OVER IT!!! I also bought a softer pink to paint the knobs, so I sprayed flowers ALL OVER IT with a stencil I turned out SO CUTE!!!!

I sanded the edges used a little acrylic paint, Delta SEMI- Opaque Burnt Umber on the sanded areas.

It looks so cute in her room, with her PINK bed.
