Happy Saturday! Today was a hopping day, and now it's pouring rain, we are late getting out of the house for a function but the house sure smells good with the Cinnamon Buns (homemade!) baking in the oven - YUM!
Although I haven't had the chance to craft in like forever due to being swamped and busy with 900 projects at the same time, I wanted to show you the gift I worked on this week! Being my son's homeroom mom, I thought of a really cool idea for her Christmas gift "from the class". She sits in the front of the class to teach and read on a really uncomfortable wooden stool so the idea for a comfy chair was born after I sat in the class helping one day and sat on that same chair for over an hour ;) I had them embroider her name on the back of the chair and each of the children dipped their thumb or finger(s!) into the paint and became one of the insects in their "from catepillars to butterflies" school theme. It was such a touching way to get the kids to imprint on this gift that will last long over they have moved on to other grades or schools. It was tons of fun and I have heard from "sources" that other teachers are stopping by to see it - maybe an idea for their classes, too! :)
Enjoy your night, whatever it may be this last weekend before Christmas!
