It’s Teacher Appreciation Week, though my little tot is 3 and in MOD (mothers day out) he has two teachers so they do apply. Now don’t take this the wrong way, but I hate giving gifts. This is simply for the fact that I stress out over what to get and If it’ll be liked and then start to talk myself out of whatever it is most of the time then do it all over again. Other then that I actually enjoy giving, sharing, and surprising, yes haha a little bit contradictive huh… Anyways, I went round and round battling it out with my inner self, to later come to the conclusion we would just make our two lovely teachers something a little bit more heart felt. Y’all, I could not be more proud of Brantley and myself at the moment. After awhile of searching for some Pinterest inspiration (not many will admit that) something cute and corny, nothing really jumped out. So we went to our craft box and endd up with popsicle sticks and paint. What 3 year old do you know who doesn’t just love either of these two things? Then added a little bit of what I think would be ‘Southern Living’ and ‘Pottery Barn’ (burlap and rhinestones), to spice things up. Not bad aye?
