It’s beginning to look like Christmas!
It’s starting to look like Christmas here! It’s just as good a time as any to start blogging again, so I thought I would just jump in.
Each year I try to do something nice for my children’s teachers, after all it’s not always an easy job, and I am very grateful for those who work to help guide my children. I have been blessed to have amazing educators as a part of their lives – but I admit it’s getting harder and harder to find something that is fun, nice and affordable. John is in middle school now, and has up to 9 teachers that I want to acknowledge for their support and help, Kate in elementary still has just one main teacher.
I found these adorable gift cards at Starbucks – which gave me the idea to give them ‘thanks a latte’. It’s not much but usually most people can find something to eat or drink (or even regift them). The next part was presentation – after all sometimes the best part of the gift if the wrapping! The gals at my local Starbucks helped come up with the great ‘packaging’ idea. I took cups (theirs or bought the holiday reusable) and put candy in them to make it look like a
frappuccino. Then I used marker to tag the cups – best I can tell they were a hit!
