Welcome Back!

Good morning!  So...how many of you have kids that started school today?  School starts for Kyler on Thursday but today we are going through his supplies making sure he has everything he needs.  Fun stuff!

Today I thought I'd show you the set of door hangers that I made for the teachers of Kyler's school and also the version I made for the male teachers which is right in front.  The images are from Doodle Pantry's School Sheep set and are pre-colored.  There was no way I was going to color all of those! I also printed the A+ and apple background on the door hangers that is in the School Time paper pack.  I did just a little select coloring on the apples and then highlighted the colored apples with glaze and the leaves with some stardust gelly roll pen.

As you can see I added the Ghirardelli chocolates and some Starbucks Via (instant) coffee in the pouch and they are all ready to go!  Yay!

I also added a photo of what the door hanger looks like on the door.  Pretty nice I'd say although I do think I don't want them to hang there too long as the cardstock isn't as thick as it could be and my other concern is little hands (since I did one for all the teachers K-8 plus the principal and office secretary).

Anyway, there you have it!  Kyler's school does do a little student orientation day with a hot dog lunch that allows the kids to drop off their backpacks full of stuff, see their friends, and get oriented with the school again tomorrow so I think  I'll go ahead and put the door hangers up tomorrow.

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

Thought of the day:  Never let your kids walk away without a kiss!  My kids are not allowed to leave or hang up the phone without saying 'I love you' especially if it was a particularly difficult conversation.

These are wonderful gifts for back to school, Lorie! They will be so appreciated, and Kyler will be so proud :) Mmmmm....Ghirardelli, mmmm...Starbuck's - can't go wrong with those two! Lol...we were the same way with our kids. Now that they are both in their thirties, they understand, and we have to think fast to say "I love you" before they do!!! You are a good momma!

Oh My - I wish I was one of Kyler's teachers. Love these - I'm going to make them for my daughter to hang on the doors of her girl's dorm at the holidays. Who would not love to see one of these on their door.

Very cute ~ you are sooo GOOD about making things for teachers, I tell ya... you're putting me to shame! LOL. I met Maddy's teachers yesterday and they are all wonderful. I haven't even begun to think of teachers' gifts yet.
