Even though, A has only been in school 4 weeks - and part time at that, I still wanted to send something in for her before she goes. This teacher, has helped my child grow, stay safe, and enjoy her time in class. Ashlynn loves both her teachers and when I tell her it's a school day, the first thing she asks is about seeing Ms. J and Ms. L.
So with basically a day to get something put together, I used the inspiration I gave myself with last week's giveaway (today is the last day to enter!). Since I didn't have enough time to order a subscription box as a gift, instead I picked up an initial mug from Target and some Teatulia Jasmine Green Tea. It was funny enough that I had made the printable that morning and when I saw Target carried Teatulia, the same brand I received in my Tea Box Express, I grabbed it. It was actually Ashlynn who told me "no, the purple one!" And I realized how it'd coordinate. Girl, has been paying attention! (Or she just really likes purple)
I got the printable idea from pinterest, it really just completed this as the perfect (literal) $10 gift. I wrote it up in keynote, added a clip art apple and printed it out. Easy peasy lemon squeezey.
This actually fits right into something else I've been thinking about lately. Two blogs I read, 6th Street Design School and Little Miss Momma, both shared this video earlier this week. It was produced by their church, but you don't need to be a member of LDS faith to be hit with the message it puts out. I'm sure most young mother's in today's world feel like this on a daily basis, and it's a feeling I've been having quite frequently. It was a message I really needed to hear at the right time.
