Finally a new post!

I just want to apologize for not keeping up with the blog this school year.  It's been a rough year.  I was diagnosed with Leukemia in April 2012 and have been fighting for my life ever since.  I am happy to report that I had a successful Bone Marrow Transplant September 18th. I am still in the hospital, but feeling much better.  I am taking this year off to heal, but I promise to continue to find exciting and useful resources.  Thanks for checking out my blog.

Pencils, M&M's, and a Candy Bar

A few ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week.
1.  Wrapped Pencils
Take a few pencils and colored string. I macrame-d friendship bracelet string around each pencil and wrapped them in raffia to complete the look.
2.  Wrapped Hershey Bar
Using a simple glue stick, I covered the candy bar with decorative paper.  Then I printed out a new label on to loose-leaf paper and wrapped the bar.  Super Simple.

3.  M&M's in a Mason Jar
I filled a mason jar with M&M's and attached this cute poem.
