Succulent Garden Gifts
See my tutorial here to create the garden.
The glass vases came from the Dollar Store and the adorable chalkboard buckets came from my house....they were left there and hidden in a cabinet by the previous owner. So thanks to her! Please comment below if you know where to find these!


My first attempt at a cupcake. There is room for improvement!


The puggy is my favorite. Who doesn't love the face of a pug?? His friend is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. No surprise, this gift is going to someone with both types of dogs... and if you're reading this, you know who you are... forget you ever saw it! It's a surprise!

This stop sign is perfect for bus drivers or crossing guards! Here is a free stop sign printable card from another bus driver gift of mine.


Teacher Gifts

 I'm so excited to further explore clay! Expect to see more soon!

I'm sure you have a few emery boards around the house or at the bottom of your purse to file your fingernails. Emery is also used to sharpen pins and needles and keep them free of burrs that will snag your fabric. 2. I'm going to be honest, my tomato pin cushion is hidden in the back of a drawer. Call me judgmental, but tomatoes are for my sandwich, not my sewing room. With a quick search of Pinterest  you can find some amazingly cute ideas for diy pin cushions. Check out my  pin cushion Pinterest board  for a start. Most cushions call for Fiber Fill , which is great, but for a sharper solution...fill your custom cushions with emery to sharpen your pins and nee

Make a SWEET treat to say thanks to your bus driver for keeping your child safe this year. Feel free to use my free printable stop sign card and mason jar lid label! Materials Mason jar  (I used  half pint Ball jars ) Wide Gumball's 1st School Day School Buses  Fabric Pinking Sheers Ribbon or twine Candy Examples: red and yellow m&m's, 1/2 in gumballs and I used  Jolly Ranchers  and  Twizzlers Rainbow Twists . Optional: Rectangle hole punch A little tip for the Jolly Rancher jar: I used a cut piece of paper towel roll to create the inside structure, it makes it much easier to create a design. I used pinking sheers to trim out the cardboard edges and then stuffed it full of more Jolly Ranchers.  Click for PDF. Stop sign card and mason jar top are for personal use only, do not redistribute.
