Teacher Thanks

It’s a very happy day in our house when we can start counting down the days until summer vacation. After today, we have 14 days left of school. My kiddos could not be happier. Time for celebration is near at hand.

And while my kids are busy rejoicing, I’ve been realizing that it’s time for me to start thinking about those end-of-year teacher thank you’s.Β  I know these last few days are going to slip by fast.

Both kids have been very fortunate to have had some wonderful teachers this year. Nik’s art teacher in particular has gone way above and beyond the call of duty. On her own time and expense, she started an after-school art club for some of her students. In art club, the kids have gotten to work on projects more advanced than anything they could do in class, learning lots of new techniques and skills. This has been Nik’s most favorite thing from 8th grade. And what I am most grateful for this past year.

As some of you may remember, it’s LilyBee week on both the Glue Arts and Epiphany Crafts blogs. I made this card with the adorable Victoria Park Collection, along with my Glue Arts adhesives, and the Round 14 and Round 20 Button Studio Tools from Epiphany Crafts.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Glue Arts, Epiphany Crafts, and LilyBee blogs yet this week, you may want to do so. There are lots of prizes up for grabs from our fun triple-partnership, as well as beautiful projects from all three teams to get you inspired.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back tomorrow with one more LilyBee project for the Glue Arts blog. πŸ™‚

  1. Awesome card! What art teacher wouldn’t cheerish a handmade card?!?! Love your color combo, design and banners! And it looks like all the twinery team-up projects going around might have you thinking about twine a bit??? Love how you used it here! πŸ™‚

  2. It’s amazing that school is almost over isn’t it??? This card is adorable and so perfect for any teacher, male or female. How cool that Nic’s teacher started that club. Kudos to her!

  3. Those teachers are going to flip over these thank yous Audrey! It’s wonderful that Nik’s teacher has offered her the avenue to explore her crafty side. Beautiful job! (on the card and the daughter πŸ™‚ )

  4. You must know that I love this card with the pennants, twine, and mix of patterns! That swirl of twine is very cool. How nice that as a parent you are taking the time to give a hand-made thank you to your daughter’s teacher. That is so sweet and I know it will be greatly appreciated!

  5. Nic’s art teacher sounds fantastic. If only all of them would be so devoted.
