That’s right! A full on celebration!! If I had any idea how to work a computer, I would have made some really cute holiday tag to put on here that says the name of my party, but I don’t, so I didn’t.
Alert! Alert! I know people who are smarter and sweeter than I’ll EVER be, and they made me some party buttons. Look at what Natalie made me! I seriously would have done it the same way–if I knew how! I love it. Isn’t she talented?
And Kendra is so talented and wonderful and brilliant! She included the date of the party and everything! How did she even DO this? She told me some way to have you link to it, but that’s gonna take an hour or so for me to figure out. Until then, just look at its prettiness and enjoy!
All in favor of saving money this Christmas say, “I”. All in favor of exchanging some gifts that have heart or meaning behind them say, “I”. All in favor of coming here next week to share your ideas and then steal from others say, “Chris is a genius!” Well, maybe not that last part.
I scavenged (I don’t care if that’s not a word) the internet for some goodies that look like “I can make that”, and I know you ladies are looking for some inspiration this year.
In order to spare our pocket books, I would like to invite you to join me
Clever, clever, clever!!! Count me in! Brilliant! 🙂
I’m hoping for some fun ideas.
Oh Chris, what do teachers really want to get as gifts? I’m guessing not anything with apples on it, right?
Astrid…your right about teacher gifts….no apples or coffee mugs. Tee Hee! (Although grateful for anything)
Chris~ You are a GENIUS! What agreat idea. I am so excited and that is right up my ally. Ill be thinking and spreading the word!!!
I can put words on your picture for you,if you would like, and even make an html button. Would you like me to email it to you?
I think the party sounds great! I will link up!

Mimi Sue says
Sounds like fun. I’ll try to find something. (I’m sure it’ll be copied cause I haven’t had an original idea since 1992.) Mimi
That sure looks like a fun party…what a great idea. Sad that I only learned about it now. Even without anything to share, I will surely drop by and see what the others have to share. It’s gonna be fun, fun, fun.
Great idea! I will start thinking!!!!

Just LOVE the leaf galand idea! I haven’t commented in a while because my daughter is requesting to many changes and I am not dealing with them well. Growing up is hard to do … for Mom’s that is.
