Thanks, Smiles, & Fabric

Today is the last day of school. Somehow this school year has flown by....and it has been a great one! We were blessed with amazing teachers for both Henry and Grant this year, and I just couldn't finish out the year without showing them our appreciation one more time.
I sent these really cute canvas bags for each of their teachers filled with a few happies and a gift card to Target:) The bags are monogrammed with an iron on initial that I cut out with my Cricut. Then I added a little tie to the handle for a little extra flair!
 Yesterday Eli and I went to eat lunch with our Kindergartner and 1st grader for the last time this year. It was kind of sad, but the boys are already saying they will be a 1st grader and a 2nd grader after today:) I think Eli is most excited because he will finally have someone to play with during the day!
 I've been working hard to finish up a few projects around the house before summer break starts. This bolt of fabric has been measured and cut and my re-upholstery project is about halfway finished...now I have less than 2 hours to get done before the madness begins:) Hopefully I can share the finished product with you one day next week...that is if we aren't already spending our days at the pool by then!
We have a birthday party on Saturday and a little trip planned for Sunday, but inbetween I hope to work on some new summer door decorations! Have a great one....and spend a little time working on a fun craft this weekend:)
Pin It!

What a cute teacher gift!

I love your blog! I've spent so much time sifting through it and bookmarking different crafts you've done. I especially love your teacher gifts. I'm room mom for my daughter's 1st grade class and you've given me so many great ideas!

School is all out for us too. It's so hard to believe the older they get it all goes by that much quicker. :( Have a great weekend!

Love this! I have that same fabric from Hobby Lobby that you used on the bag. :) Do you do anything special to your fabric to cut it with your Cricut? I'm borrowing a friend's Cricut and wanted to try my hand at cutting fabric...but didn't want to harm the Cricut!

Visiting from Tatertots & Jello :)

Cute bag...their teachers will love it!

I bet Eli is very happy to have his brothers home. I still can't believe it is the end of the school year.
