Sorry for the lack of post lately. My family has been out of town for the last week due to two family members who have had invasive surgery. Here on the East Coast, we have had lots of rain thanks to Beryl. But we needed the rain and I was able to finish a long awaited project.... a shower curtain for my girl's bathroom! I am not a seamstress by an means but I would LOVE to learn to make all kinds of things. It took me all day but I am so pleased with the finished product.

Boy, has it been busy at my house! My girls finished up school on Friday and I have been working on end of the year teacher gifts and graduation presents. I forgot to take a pictures of the beach chairs I monogrammed for the teacher' s gift so the picture posted is from last year. The graduation gift is done and they all turned out really cute. It is apparent that she loves the zebra print and that her dorm room will be styling! Please visit my website at www.markivy.com for more fun personalized ideas for gifts.

Although we appreciate our teachers for all they do to help our kids be the best they can be while in their care all year long, today was the last day for Teacher Appreciation Week. I had the students bring in gift cards for a gift card "tree" to present to the teacher as the main gift for the week. The gift cards do not have to be a large amounts.... they ranged from $5 to Dairy Queen to $25 to The Gap. Some parents used this as their end of the year gift too. The idea came as I received a similar gift for my birthday and it was awesome! The teachers absolutely loved it too :) What is not to like, right?
Our PTO furnished the main entree at a luncheon today for the teachers and the parents brought in side dishes so I did not ask the class to do anything else today. However, my girls LOVE their teachers and wanted to do something special every day this week so I made them all a pencil door hanger as their gift for today. They turned out really cute and the teachers loved them!!!

Made By The Students.... Homemade Cards! Today the student's gave the teachers the cards they made with lots of thought, love, and appreciation. There were so many cute cards, hugs given, and happy faces. This is a great way to show how much you care or appreciate someone without much cost if any!
