After you're finished here, hurry over to Sarah Martina Parker's incredible blog, where I'm pretty sure there will be some amazing eye candy for you! If you have any trouble linking along the way, hop back over to The Craft's Meow!


For my project today, I used, "Owl See You in Class", designed by Jenny Suchins. Here's what I did:

Every teacher LOVES chocolate, or at least that's the rumor!
(Wonder why they always get apples???)
I had some packing material that came between glass sheets,
and thought it would look cute around the candy bar.



Next, what teacher doesn't need pencils?
This cute little pencil holder was CASEd from my good friend Shirley (isn't she talented???)
We made these a good while back, and when I was trying to come up with teacher 'stuff', I thought of it! I changed it up a bit, and voila!
Ahh.....I have such talented friends!
This adorable post it holder was also a CASE from
my friend Shirley...it's an easel - no kidding! Cute as can be! I can't believe I forgot to get a photo from the side!

And as you know, the fun thing about easel projects is that they fold very flat for mailing!

This little teacher care package needed a tag...

...AND a bag!!!

Hope you liked this week's sneak peeks!


Head on over to Sarah Martina Parker's blog now - oh my goodness, she is SO talented! You'll love what you see there!


Have a great week!
Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.
