Teacher appreciation gifts

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Today is the last day of school and last night [yes, I am a procrastinator]
I wrapped up these little gifts for my kids' teachers.

Included in this little gift basket is some:
"Fresh Picked Strawberries" soap from Bath and Body Works,
"Fresh Picked Strawberries" hand sanitizer from the same place,
Strawberry flavored Mentos and
Orbit strawberry remix gum.

*The cute berry basket is from Zurcher's Party Supplies/Kara's Party Ideas.

I found the inspiration HERE [on the blog, eighteen 25].  Theirs is super cute.  And they give you a free download for a super cute tag as well so you might want to go check it out.  Apparently the Johnson's don't believe in color ink cartridges though.  So this is what I came up with. 

And for the kids' bus driver??? 

That lady deserves some.  THAT, I am sure.
That's gotta be one crazy job.

"You deserve chocolate" inspiration can be found HERE.
[On the blog, eighteen 25, yet again.  Geesh.  Those girls are clever.] 

Happy beginning of Summer to all of you.

[And I want to wish my husband, Ryan, a very happy birthday today. 
You are the best babe!  XOXO.]

You and me.  New York, NY.  2011.
