Like most of you, I have mountains of things to do before school starts in a few short weeks. Lessons to plan, curriculum to revise, book bins to organize. But what do I find myself doing? Shopping for materials and creating cute, crafty, completely non-essential projects that just make me happy. So, someone needs to hide the car keys and take away my glue gun - please!
I hit the Dollar Tree (again) and found the greatest thing! I'm sure you've seen these cute little hand pointers in some of the teacher supply catalogs.
! (Run over quickly - they just came in on the truck this morning!) For a dollar each, who could resist? So I bought some for my whole team and the idea for a little Back-to-School gift was hatched right there in the craft aisle at Dollar Tree. I picked up a few cheesy vases, some ribbon and some greenery and came home and wrote a little poem. I now have a cute (yet thrifty) gift to say, "I'm glad I'm working with you this year." I hope my team (the best team in the world, btw) likes their "handy bouquets!"
Have a great night,
