                       Welcome...More Teacher Appreciation Gifts!                       
You may remember the M&M Poem from last year.
You can see what we did with the poem last year HERE.
(Thank you to my friend Sandy)
This craft can also be used for Mother's Day

When I came across the clear mini plastic paint cans from Michael's Craft Store.
I couldn't resist using the Teacher M&M poem once again!

We decorated our cans with Teacher Stickers from Stickopotamus Back To Class SPSN03.
(The stickers may no longer be available, they are from several years ago).
One large bag of M&M's 42 Ounce size (Walmart) will fill two cans.

We attached My Magnificent and Marvelous Teacher poem to the cards along with a note.

Green is for the inspiration you give me each day.
Blue is for your patience in showing me the way.
Orange is for your warmth and caring style.
Yellow is for the way you always make me smile.
Red is for my life that you have touched this year.

You place knowledge in my hands,

that melt into my heart and live forever!
You're a "Magnificent" & "Marvelous" Teacher!
Thank you for being my M&M!

(The poem can also be used for Mother's Day)
I would make one change- 
Red is for my life that you have touched throughout the years.

Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up!
Let's Create!

We love to celebrate Teachers!
As a Mom of Six, I greatly appreciate my kids teachers!
I see the patience and hard work that teachers give their students everyday!
I hear my kids share what they LOVE about their teachers.
Teachers deserve to be appreciated!

This year, we are making Rosette Fabric Necklaces.
(You may remember a fabric rosette necklace for a music teacher)
We decided to make more for all of our teachers!
My kids are helping me pick out fabrics, jewels and how they want their Teacher's necklace to turn out.
The black and white polka dots are a favorite!

The fun part is mixing and matching the fabrics!
We are putting our necklace in a cupcake box with large gift tags!
We found our small cupcake box's at Michaels Craft store.
You can also find adorable cupcake box's on sale at Walmart in the Easter Isle!

I still remember my favorite teacher, she was my First Grade Teacher.
She was always smiling, and very kind!
Celebrate Teachers!
Have a great week!

Hello Everyone!
So Happy to be with you all!
 April is moving by way too fast!
What a busy month it's been!
We've been doing a lot of Re-Organization!

Amongst the organization, I couldn't reisist a few more carrots!
Just like Pumpkins.....Carrots can also be addicting to CREATE!
It all started with the polka dot carrots in the previous post.
I love the bright orange fabrics, which can easily be made from your fabric scraps.
Who can resist the colors of spring along with a few polka dots?

I've made my carrots larger this time around with green rick rack and ribbon trims.
A great addition to Easter decorating!
I found the green leaves at Walmart!
I cut my carrots into a cone shape (two sides placed right sides together).
Gather the top with green rick rack.  Add a few ribbon trims.
I use my glue gun to secure the leaves into place.
Super easy to make.

Spring is beautiful!
