Teacher's Appreciation Day...

Just in case you weren't aware of it.....Teacher's Appreciation Day is this week. As a teacher, I can vouch for the fact that teachers do a LOT of work that is never notice by most people. I can also tell you that we spend a LOT of our own money on things for our classroom, so PLEASE.... if there is a teacher who touches your life, let them know that they are appreciated this week. Just send a little card, write a little note, or if you like, send them a little something to brighten their day.

As for me and my kids, we just finished making 12 cards identical to the one shown here:

Each teacher will also receive a goodie bag. This week happens to begin our statewide testing, so I plan to slip the goodie bags and cards in with their papers that they must pick up first thing tomorrow morning, just a little something to brighten the morning.

Isn't that House Mouse just adorable? I love these stamps but haven't purchased one before now because I was a bit intimidated about coloring in the images. I ended up using my Prismacolor pencils and then blending with odorless turpentine. I am rather proud of how well they turned out (and even more proud of the fact that I finished 12 more projects!!)
