Thank You To Our Teachers Hop Day 3

If you are looking for the Royal Purple Freedom Hop, please click HERE.

Welcome to the Thank You To Our Teachers Blog Hop! Today is the last day of the hop.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  If you have arrived here from Jen's Blog then you are on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog for a visit and want to hop along with us, start from the beginning with Memories with Jen. This is a week long hop and we will be posting on 3 separate days. (June 5th, 8th and 11th) Please make sure you hop on those days or throughout the week to see all the wonderful inspiration on what to make our teachers for thank you gifts.

I made these nesting boxes for a second grade teacher that my girls just love.  Victoria had her a couple years ago and Emma hopes to have her next year.  Even though she doesn't teach either of my girls, they asked me to make her a gift.  She has only been in the school for a three years now but she is really good at her job and cares for the kids very much

For my final project, I would like to share a clipboard I made for myself.  As I am a teacher of life to my children.  lol  These pictures are from last year's first day of school... 2009.  This was my oldest daughter's senior year.  Each of my girls dressed in different rooms at different times in the morning and when I looked at them all together, I realized they totally matched.  It was so funny because we did not plan it!

I would like to thank all the talented ladies who took the time to create such wonderful projects for our hop.  It means so much to me that you joined Jen and I in this special hop.  I really think teachers do deserve nice presents at the end of the year for all of their hard work.  I hope you were inspired and maybe learned something new from a project or two.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Don't forget, I will be giving away 3 blog candies, one for each post of the hop. I will pick the winners on June 12, one winner from the comments from each post day. Please leave a way for me to reach you.  Make sure to hop on over to Kim and Pamela's fabulous blog: next.

Kimmarie -

I have loved doing this hop with you. You are the sweetest! And these projects of yours in this post are my favorite so far. I love those boxes and I love that you made them for someone who is not even your girls' teacher! Very cute and colorful. Thanks for all your help with this hop! :)

Wow! These projects are great! I just love those nesting boxes and the clipboard is so cute! I love when that happens. It's funny but when I went home for Memorial Day my mom, my brother, and my step dad were all wearing red t-shirts. We got a good laugh. Happens all the time in our nutty family. Thanks for sharing your lovely projects with us!
