Teacher Gift

I love to create cards both digatlly and handmade. I was trying to figure out what to get my children's teachers for thank you gifts this year. One is getting married and the other is a preschool teacher and a crafter herself. So I decided to create them each a set of handmade cards they can use as thank you cards if they so wish or use for whatever occasion they decide on. Though this was a bit time consuming, I know it would probably not be duplicated! :-)
Here are the cards I created. They both got a set of 20 cards. I will have to admit I benefited as well as I created 4 of each and kept 1 for myself!
Some of these are from Stampin Up (actually all but one). I used the Fox and Friends set and the Matryoskha Set (which I absolutely love).
I have come up with a really creative way to package them and will post more later, along with how to photos!

Curtains for my Master Bedroom

Slowly I am pulling together our Master Bedroom. I painted the room a couple summers ago, we added the crown molding over a year ago. For Mother's day I got my bed (which hasn't been delivered yet). Funny how we are the last in the house to get an actual headboard and foot board. I have been putting off doing the curtains/drapes in our room. I have no idea why, well I have an idea. The wonderful bay window which has given me trouble with how to put curtains on. So I had an idea on how to hang the curtains, then it was executing the plan. Then explaining to the guy at Home Depot what I wanted. So finally they are on their way to be done. I love the versatility of them. The brown embroidered topper which I love can be easily removed and I can change it out seasonally. I don't know if I ever will but the thought is there! I will post more picture once the remaining curtains are done and hopefully the bed is delivered!

Look who I spotted outside my bedroom window!

I am sometimes woken up by the clear and close sound of a bird chirping. Some mornings I am pleased with this, most mornings I will have to admit that I am not. Well when I opened my shades this morning I found out why the lovely chirping was so clear and why she was so happy to sing! Nothing like a Robin's nest to welcome spring! Even though we have had near summer like weather lately.
