Apple of my Eye!

 I really wanted to make something for my daughter's teacher at the beginning of the school year, but with moving and being preggo, I didn't get a chance. I redeemed myself by taking her a basket of goodies to her parent/teacher conference that we had last night.  She seemed really happy, especially with the box of tissue. I think I will have to send her more on a regular basis.

 The box is full of yummy chocolate...I am sure that is a must-have for most teachers to stay sane. We found out last night that her life is super stressful right now anyway. Chocolate always helps.  I made a simple card to just say thanks with a short message. I didn't want anything too long or drawn out, especially with Christmas coming up. I am sure I will want to write something longer then.  Of course, no gift basket would be complete without a tag.

 I was thrilled to use up some of this older SU! paper that I have been hanging on to. It is one of my favorite collections so I have been hoarding it, but I have SO much stuff that I have to start using it up.

You can see the basket all wrapped up in cellophane here.  I gave her some clorox wipes, tissue, hand sanitizer, gum, chocolate and a bottle of Bath and Body Works soap, Apple of course.  I had a lot of fun making this ensemble. I am hoping to have more time in the future to create.  In my new home, we have a big family room in the basement which is devoted to my craft space, kids play area and T.V. area. It is perfect so I can have the little ones playing while I am creating. NOw....if there were just more hours in the day. Thanks for fluttering by!
