Dance Thank you notes

J. had her winter dance recital this month and I made the usual "dance themed" thank you notes for her teacher. She did a fantastic job and I was so proud to see her doing her duet in ballet after only 3+ months. It definitely looks like she did not get my "clumsiness" gene :)

Here are this year's quick clipart dance thank you note card samples....

Gumball Treat Containers

I have just a few of these Gumball Treat containers leftover from my December craft fair.
Price is $5.00 and they are filled with 25 large double bubble gumballs.  They make perfect stocking stuffers or a cute little gift for a child to give a friend.  They are plastic, so non-breakable!!  What a bonus! Email me if interested!

Winter Gifts

I made some "winter gifts" for J's teachers back at the beginning of December...(funny though...it was 60+ degrees when she gave them to the teachers, so not quite your typical No. VA weather!)
Inside each pail/bucket, was a set of printed tissues, wipes, antibacterial gel, lip balm, hand lotion and cute zippered purse to store them in.  I put them in a tall and clear cello bag (like for party favors) and tied them up with some curling ribbon, added a tag and viola - instant little gift.

Crafts Class Button embellished artwork

I did a crafts class with some local Girl Scouts this month.  Our project was a button embellished piece of artwork.  The sample was a tree accented with buttons (not shown), but they could create anything they wanted.  I told them we could do button trees and showed the samples, but it's really up to them.  They started with painting the canvas background and deciding on the theme and some sketched out their tree, others just went for it and/or did something totally different.  Not everyone used buttons either...I love their creativity!  The class was a huge hit with the girls.
