It's that time of the year again, school is about to end and I'm trying to figure out what to give the kid's teachers.
I usually do homemade gifts but with all the sickness and other stuff going on around here, it completely slipped my mind.
So now, here I am, trying to figure out what to give them.....just 3 days before school ends. Oh Lord what did I get myself into.
I think that I need to turn to what I do best and what I'm good at, and that is crafts, using my hands to create something and also, I believe that handmade goodies are always appreciated right?
Here's what I've come up with so far, the kids kinda pushed me in this direction because they both said they wanted apples for the teacher....so I thought, well, if I can make donuts and cupcakes, I'm sure I can make an apple? Right? Right...well I set off looking for a good and easy pattern and I did find one or two.
What do you think so far? I've made two red apples and my idea is to make 3 each for each teacher, so a red, green and a yellow apple. I just hope they like it.
But now this is where you come in and help me out, I want you to give me ideas for homemade gifts....here's the catch though, I don't want to spend any money, well I couldn't even if I wanted to, with my car needing repairs and Curt's birthday on Friday too, cash is kinda tight this month.
Here's what I'm looking for, easy, inexpensive, homemade, something I can make in 3 days (I know I know, I'm asking for a lot, but help a girl out).
Will you help me? If you do, I'll even give you a big helping of Bubble Pizza? Yeah?
