Teacher Gift....

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm so tired right now....
We have 12 families moving out of the area... Which on the one
hand is AWESOME for me.... cuz I get the items they don't want
to take with them when they move.... 
On the other hand....
there's soooo much stuff that I'm exhausted!
  I received several drop offs from these families already....
that I had to close my box (aka Donation box)
I'm working as fast as I can to get this stuff
cleaned and put out for my customers but you know
as soon as I open the box again.... I'm back to square one...
It's just crazy busy... So I may not have time to come visit
as often as I would like due to this "Rush" in donations...
But I will do my best to pop in when I can...
The fact that I'm typing this out with out falling asleep is amazing!
But I wanted to say "HI" to you guys... :o)
Hunter's Last day of school is Friday... It's suppose to
be next Friday but they built a new school here for the
Elementary kids and they wanted to start the tear down of
the old school ASAP.... So we can take them out of
school a week earlier if we like.... And with all the work
I got going on right now.... I could use his help! HA!!
Any who.... This is going to be the gift he gives to his Teacher.
I always give the Teacher something during the year and at the
end of the year to let them know that I appreciate them!
So I saw this box by Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Store
and HAD to make it! HA!  Designer Paper is MME

I added 10 handmade cards to the box for her to use throughout
the year... (I hope she likes it) The Ribbon is Stampin' Up
2 of the flowers are My Craft Spot Rose Flower Dies
the other 2 flowers are from the Silhouette Store...
I added Gems to all the flowers and attached a
magnet to it for easy closing.... Normally I would
make a couple more things.... but with my work schedule
it ain't gonna happen! But I still wanted to give her
something made from me and this is it! :o)
Well.... I'm really exhausted now.... typing all this
stuff! hahaha Thanks so much for stopping
by and always being so supportive of me
and my work/crafting! You guys are the BEST!
Hope to see you very soon! Have an

Oh my - this is just gorgeous Theresa! What a fabulous gift - I hope this teacher understands how much time and effort went into this amazing set! The papers you used are so pretty and the flowers are awesome!

Hope you get a bit of rest sometime soon. How wonderful that you are going to have some help from your son. Poor guy - he may be wishing he was back in school before it's! Don't work too hard my sweet friend (get some sleep)!

Sounds like you have your hands overfull there with your store!!When it's all said and done, and you have those sales from all of the donations, it will be worth it!! Don't wear Hunter out to bad!! Hope you get some rest!!! :)

Wow are you busy. I hope things settle down after this onslaught.
You will so need a vacation.
Maybe you should take some extra B12. lol

Oh Theresa, this is such an amazing gift! I'm not surprised you've gone above and beyond.. I do hope she realizes the effort and love you've poured into this. :o) The box itself is gorgeous! What a lovely vessel for the stunning cards you made! I'm excited for her to receive it. Lovely work!

Sending you lots of sunshiny wishes to help you through this busy time! I'm glad your son will be able to help... Ha! Lucky boy. ;) Have a wonderful day, Theresa!
