Christmas Gifts!

The girls brought their Christmas gifts for their teachers to school this morning, so now I can finally share with you what I have been making for the past few weeks!!

This joyful snowman is for my Senior Kindergardener's teacher.  He is from the book Count On It by Art to Heart

This angel is for my 2nd grader's teacher and is from the book Be Attitudes by Art to Heart.  I left out the lettering and added a couple of Treble Clef buttons because she loves music.

I have the privilege of being a substitute EA at my daughter's school.  I mostly work with/for a wonderful lady who works with a special needs child in my daughter's 2nd grade class.  She does so much for both my kids and has become a friend to me too.  So I made this little mini for her.  It is my own design.

I replace this lady whenever she is absent from school but I also take over for her at lunch time so she can go have her lunch break.
I wanted to offer something special to the little girl I work with too.  So here is the pillowcase I made for her. 

I chose bright primary colors because she is partially blind and can see these colors better than others.  

I feel so good giving something special and personal to these wonderful ladies who touch our lives in such a special way everyday.  We are blessed to have them in our lives.


I bought the hangers for the minis at my LQS.


And since I haven't shared my December mini with you yet, here is a picture of our little baby Jesus.


He is also from the book Count On It by Art to Heart.

Still a few more things to make before Christmas!  Will share soon!
