This week is Teacher/Staff Appreciation week at Tad’s school. Being that we are saving money more than usual, I am hand-making all the gifts for his teacher, teacher’s helper, and speech therapist.

So, I am busy right now being crafty, making these:

paper purse or gift bag

I learned how to make these at one of our Stampin’ Up group meetings, and after borrowing and substituting some materials, I’m making one each for Tad’s teachers and speech therapist, then filling them with cards I’ve made. The picture above is the first one that I made, and I’ve got two more to go.

So, I’m busy being crafty for a good reason. Funny kid stories and musings on life will just have to wait until later.

    That’s cute!

    This week is, apparently, Teacher Appreciation Week as I’ve seen the signs for it at Wal-Mart and Little Cousin’s school is doing the same thing.

    Very cute gift. And practical. Anyone can go out and buy something. Your efforts will be appreciated!

    Hi Deanna. I found it! And I love these little bags – you might have to teach me. 🙂
