June Giveaway

Ok, in honor of my two most favorite little people, my boys, this month I am giving away this set of sock monkey magnets.

Tell me what your favorite childhood toy was or is (I know some of you still sleep with that teddy bear) and you will be entered to win automatically. I will announce the winner this Saturday morning, the 6th.

My favorite, if I had to narrow it down to one, was a stuffed Snoopy. A dog, who despite many a bath, always looked gray and drab, but I loved him just the same. I don't have him anymore because my mom probably threw him out when he became "furless".

Me, The Busy Bee

This has been a super busy time in our family. We will soon be relocating to NC and I have been busy packing and still trying to manage my business and my life. My studio will be the last room to get packed, so I have been working hard to get the rest of the house done while also house hunting, attending end of the school year functions, helping my sis in law who just had the most beautiful baby girl and taking care of the daily doings around here. Whew, I'm tired just typing it out...

Here's a little something I worked on last week. Monkeys and baseball was the order and I just went bananas when I finished this frame. I love how it turned out!

Tuesday, I will be announcing my GIVEAWAY for June, so you hafta check back.

If You Can Read This, Hug A Teacher

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and if you are a teacher or have ever been a teacher...BLESS YOUR HEART. I, myself, survived three years of teaching preschool long before I had my own kids and let me say, it's one tough job. I so appreciate my son's teachers and what they do and the sacrifices they make to teach him everything he needs to know in his little first grade world.

I wanted to do so much more than give them a handmade gift. How do you thank them enough for their time, effort, patience, strength, love and constant care? They truly are a blessing and I'm so thankful that our son had these teachers.

Because I know they must be counting down the days til the end of year as much as the students are, I thought these gifts would be most appropriate for the end of the year.

This first one is a frame celebrating summer and all the things we enjoy about it. Picnics, ice cream, grillin' out, lemonade, vacation, etc.

This photo/memo clip is going to the college student that helps the teachers out on occasion. Just a little something to say thank you. Maybe one day, she'll use it in her own classroom.

This last one is about the beach, baby. Sun and fun wrapped up in a little frame. It features a surfboard, swim trunks and a bathing suit.

Hope they like them!

Have I said "little" enough yet?
