Proof that I love you… (a great giveaway)

Today, I have proof that I love you.  (Hee.)

Remember all those great ideas you all gave me for teacher gifts?  I combined a lot of your tips together to create gifts for Colin's teachers.  The cost wasn't bad, although it did take time to put together.  But I think that is the best gift – one that has thought and love put into it.  Colin's teachers are amazing.  I just hope they know how much they are appreciated.

And after I share what I created, I will have a great giveaway, as a thank you to you.

Here are the baskets I did:

  • The baskets were like $1.50 at Hobby Lobby.
  • The journals are from Target.  Maybe $5.
  • Couldn't find the pens with the post-it things on it – wish I could.  Instead, just did a simple pen… maybe $1.
  • Fuzzy socks – on sale at Dillards for $2.50.
  • Gift card from bookstore.  This was the main gift.
  • Mug from Target.  $3.  Just a plain one.
  • Hot chocolate mix.  Colin's sweet sitter made these for us and friends, so I hired her to make some for me to give the teachers.  She said they were about $2 each to make them.  So cute.  (For directions, click HERE. But she also added a layer of red sugar sprinkles.  I LOVE that touch!)
  • Bookmarks I made using this INCREDIBLE stationery set from 2peas by Erica Hernandez.  WOW.  Love this set.  On the back of the bookmarks, Colin drew a picture.
  • I used that same digital kit to create the circle tag on the front.
  • Also included my family's holiday card.

Oh, and several people suggested giving them a set of handmade cards.  I did that a few weeks ago, too. So I needed something different for Christmas. :)

And, isn't this too cute?  Colin in his performance at school.  They sang a bunch of songs.  Melts my heart…

OK… since you were all so kind to me, I have a great giveaway.  This is my FAVORITE punch.  So I must love you if I am giving one away, huh?  Hee.  The Paper Shapers from EK Success are the best and this big 3" scallop is amazing.  And I have one to giveaway!  (Thanks EK!  Oh, and if you want any of the scallop punches, call Stampers Corner – she has great prices and doesn't charge more than actual shipping!  Also, Stamp Your Art Out.)  Just leave a comment here by 11:59pmEDT on Tuesday telling me what the weather is like in your neck of the woods.  I will pick a random winner of this…

Prize again

Here?  It is darn cold.  A few degrees.  EEK!  I prefer snow if it is going to be this cold.  But my mother-in-law has the best fireplace – you can't peel me away from it. :)

Hugs!  Oh, and the winner of the Autumn Leaves stamp set is Adriana P!  And the Maya Road set?  That winner is Sharon (from Florida)!  I emailed you both.

Bye…

    We are in Savannah, Georgia and while I do love living here, I am from the mid-west and this time of year in particular, I am wishing that I was back home. Christmas to me means snow and cold..Tomorrow is will be in the mid 50′s. So unfortuantely, I’ll only be able to “dream” of a white Christmas!! Happy Holidays
