Bright and Colorful Note Holder

Here's a bright and colorful note holder that's just a lot of fun to have on your desk.  To make the flower, I just punched out five flowers, pierced a hole in the center of each, spritzed them with water, placed a brad in the center to hold them together and then just scrunched the heck out of them!  I carefully unfolded each layer a bit and then let the flowers dry.  It was that easy!  Once the flower was dry, I hot glued it to the cover of the post-it note holder.

Tea Bag Holder Gift Idea

Here's a fun little gift idea for the tea lover in your life.  I used it as a goodie bag give-a-way at an open house for a local doctor's office I recently attended. Inside I put an organic chamomile tea bag.  You can also change it up and put a bit of chocolate inside and use it as a party favor.

Punch Art Watch

My son-in-law bought my daughter a watch as a gift to thank her for all the support she gave him and time she gave up with him while he was studying so hard in graduate school.  He asked me to help him make a card with a watch on the front to match the watch he was giving her.  Here's what we came up with...

Congratulations to all the Graduates!

Hats off to all the Graduates!

I made this graduation card for my son-in-law who is graduating with his Master's Degree in Education.  I've watched him work so hard over the past two years to earn his Master's Degree while also teaching Advanced Placement high school math classes full-time.  He's got to be exhausted because I know I am just watching him!  He's a hard worker, so dedicated to his students and so incredibly smart!   Congratulations to him and all the graduates!

Congrats Grad Card
