Merry Christmas!!

I hope that all of our family and friends spread all over the country are having an absolutely wonderful holiday season. As we countdown to the big day, the kids are getting antsy for Santa's big visit. Not that I'm complaining....children are never better behaved than when Santa's clock ticks down to Christmas Eve. We have a busy week ahead of us filled with family get-togethers and great memories in the making.

We will be heading to St. Louis for our annual visit just after Christmas and will be returning after the start of the new year. I hope everyone has the best year yet!

From our family to yours.....Merry Christmas.....and Happy New Year!!!!

Teacher's gifts

Teacher's gifts are done! I am so happy with how they turned out. I've never had the nerve to make anything for a teacher's gift because it seemed like a big task. I am not sure WHY I felt the one year we had 6 teachers to give goodies to was the year to take it on, but I did. LOL.

Inside the boxes are 5 different kinds of full sized Hershey's bars. Special dark, regular Hershey's bar, Cookies and Cream, Mr. Goodbar, and Hershey's with almonds. I made little boxes according to the stationary box tutorial from a few posts ago.

For each box I cut the bottom piece to 9"x5.5". I made my score marks at 1.5" all the way around and folded, cut and glued it according to the tutorial above. For the top I cut the paper to 8"x4.5". I scored it at 1/8th of an inch shy of 1" all the way around (to allow the top to be a tad bit bigger). The finished box is 2.5" wide x 6" long and 1.5" deep. I made a little 3"x3" card in matching paper/cardstock and let the kids sign the inside of their own teacher's cards. Then punched a hole on the inside left corner to run the ribbon through that I tied around the package.

I'm soooo STICKERS!

My friend Sherry shared this fun little quiz with me and I thought who better to share it with than my fellow scrappers. If you are feeling froggy, I'd love it if you shared your results with me in the comments.

My Result:

You like brightening things up in life and decorating your living space with your own personal style. You are versatile and able to get things done with a stick-to-it attitude. People love your colorful personality and personal flair! You like exploring new things and are willing to try anything once. But Stickers beware - sometimes you like to stick to someone that you like a little too much and take them into your confidence a little too easily. Your personality tends to make you a steadfast friend, but make sure the friends you choose are worth your efforts!
