Teachers Gifts & Updated Etsy Shop!

Hi all – I’ve been able to get some crafting done these last few days (yay!) I find that it keeps my sanity :) I love being a Mom, but let’s face it – we all need some down time every now & then, right? Even if it’s just a half hour here & there – I’ll take it. I’m trying to be better about letting myself take a break when I need to.

And what’s more relaxing then making fun handmade gifts? I know I said I was getting away from all this stuff but the truth is that I love doing it. So I decided to make some Teacher Gifts and list them for sale in my Etsy Shop. If you’re interested in any of these, please stop by there & check ’em out.

These are some post-it stands. If you’ve seen my craft fair stuff, you are familiar with these. They make great gifts. I’ve included a matching RSVP pen. What I like about these is that they are re-usable. When the post-it is done, you just slap a new one back on!

These are some magnets that I created using the “Teacher’s Apple” stamp set from PTI. They measure 3.5″x2.5″ (sized for a wallet size photo). They are also another great way of thanking a Teacher:

I hope to list more items in the next few days in my shop, so check back soon for blog posts about that.

    Thank you for posting again. Missed U!!!!!

  2. Hi, Kerry. Since I have a daughter, sister, and daughter-in-law who are teachers, I love teacher appreciation gifts. These are so cute! I have been watching all your videos the last couple of days and getting some great ideas! Thanks so much! (I also sent you an email with a question about the mini milk cartons. Hope you got it!) :)

  3. We are missing you…but hey, first things first! Enjoy your time with that little one because you are so right, these first days/weeks will fly by!

    When you have a sec, would you post my info on the magnets. What is the holder and where did you find them? Not that I would “case” one of your projects…..no NOT ME! LOL! Have a great day!

  4. Duh! the “my” in my comment should be MORE!

  5. I’m glad you are still going to make the craft fair stuff! I’ve learned so much from you already! Thanks!

  6. I am so glad to see you back up and in action action. You have given me such great ideas and while a baby can sure slow you down, it’s good to keep your paper trimmer sharp! Keep it coming.

  7. You are such an inspiration!!! I love ALL of your creations. I used some of your ideas. Continue to post on your blog. I love all your posts as well and what you have to share with everyone who shares the same interests to create as you do. THANKS!

  8. Aren’t those clear plastic frames the best!? I made something similar. (http://poditan.blogspot.com/2011/04/easy-cheesy-homemade-gift-idea-post-it.html). I love your idea to make it a teacher appreciation gift!
