Happy May Day to ya!

I wanted to share these fun and cute Calendar Blocks I just recently finished.
The buyer of these beauties ordered them from my Etsy
for an end of the year teacher gift, for her son's pre-k teacher.
As a teacher myself...
I love this idea!


I have to admit I am not the biggest fan
of the typical teacher's gifts that come teacher's ways.
Let's see...
scented lotions...
apple themed goodies...
notepads/stationary...

Now, these gifts are sweet, don't get me wrong.
It is just a repeat of the same things a lot...ya get me?

AND next week is actually Teacher Appreciation Week!
Are you going to get the teacher in your life...
or maybe your child's teacher a gift?
I think you just maybe should!

The kind and generous mom that ordered these blocks
even knew her son's teacher loved animal prints, pinks, tiaras, and girly stuff!
How thoughtful!

Which by the way I am getting slightly obsessed
with crowns and tiaras lately!

These can be used at this teacher's school desk - or even at her home desk!
Brilliant!
Gift cards are always a big hit with teacher's too!
I think gift cards are a hit with anyone though, right?

Are you a teacher?
What gifts do you loathe or love??
(I feel nerdy just using the word 'loathe')
What gifts will you get your kids teachers?

Why did I just blog about teacher's gifts for awhile...
not sure...

It's May 1st...
new memory verse...
"So is my word that goes from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
Isaiah 55:11

Happy May, yo!

Let's see... best gift I've gotten at school? Razorback stuff!

Least favorite? Half used bottles of perfume, old stuffed animals, or the Christmas apple gift sets, that the kids say, "My mom bought this on clearance for you." LOL

I LOVE these blocks!!! If only my students bought such fabulous gifts...

Do you remember last year when I got 2 big jugs of laundry detergent for Christmas from a student...with a tag that said something about glad TIDE-ings and JOY? Nice...the family recovered themselves with a Starbucks gift card.

Those are so cute. I wish I got gifts like that when I was teaching. Instead it was a lot of candy, cookbooks, magnets. I always loved getting something the handmade it always meant much more.

Oh, the dreaded teacher gifts! I could fill a Christmas tree with "World's Best Teacher" ornaments. I love gift cards! Even $5 ones.
