In my post on crafting in the fall, I mentioned I was working on an extra special craft for the kids' teachers. As it has been a tough year for teachers, we wanted to make them feel extra appreciated. We ordered some tea from the only place in North America that produces tea (it also happens to be in the Charleston, SC area). I discovered Charleston Tea Garden when I chaperoned a field trip there many years ago, but I always grab a few boxes between posts. Their raspberry, peach, mint and cinnamon spice flavors are always popular when hosting EFM tea mornings (sigh...I miss those). So I order a big box of tea boxes, then Richard and I went to Ikea and picked up some good cozy tea mugs, mug coasters, and spoons. Then I got with each kid. We went through the list of each teacher/specialist and talked about what they liked or something special about them. Then I got to work with my Cricut.
On one side I put their name and the other the meaningful image. A PE teacher! A teacher with a cat with only one eye! An art teacher! An IT teacher (that was the toughest one!!).
So once all done, each teacher got a nice little gift pack....
