Here are the teacher gifts I made last week for the wonderful teachers that my kiddos were lucky to have. Each class has a teacher and an assistant, so 4 gifts needed to be whipped up.
These are 3.5 x 3.5 inch wood blocks, cut by my hubby. Then I painted a simple image and then covered them with encaustic wax medium. I LOVE that stuff and the beautiful texture it creates.
A few other things:
* The boys spent the ENTIRE day outside. They go outside for 1-2 hours every day, but not for almost 10 hours! I didn’t hear the words, “I’m bored” once. I did hear about how hungry they were about a million times though.
* I cleaned my craft room. I went through everything (except my fabric- that’s next) and got rid of a huge trash bag of junk and a good size box went to goodwill too. I feel so refreshed!
