Teachers' Christmas Gifts 2013

This year for Christmas I was inspired by some things I saw on Pinterest.  That is currently my favorite site - I spend entirely too much time there looking around.     
 Each teacher received a Hand Santa-tizer and a second small gift.  One female teacher received a small basket of 15 handmade cards.  I love making the cards, and she seemed to really like them. 
 My son has 2 male teachers (they are so difficult to find the perfect gift for), and these easy-peasy
glasses of "ginger ale" (I didn't want anyone to think I was giving the teachers a beer!) were an awesome idea.        

Super cute!!

The glasses and hand sanitizer were all from the dollar store - my favorite place.

Thanks for looking
Have a great day!

DIY Pillowcases

 I saw the cutest idea on You Tube that I had to share.  The Crafty Gemini has a great (and easy) tutorial on making pillowcases.  Check out the video here to see how to make your own personalized pillowcases using only 3 simple seams.  

I found this idea just before Christmas so I HAD to make some cases for everyone!!  Took a picture of each one, I thought they turned out pretty good.   Tried to make something that each person would like.  My sister in law has a ton of butterflies, so I made her one with butterflies on it.  CUTE! 

Owls, my favorite fabric.

 I think my favorite is the owls!  They are super easy to make, and everyone loved them.

Thanks for looking,
Have a great day.
