Teacher Presents







Well tomorrow is the last day of school. My dd will be now be a big third grader. Sheesh! Where does the time go? She and I always try to make an end of the year gift for her teachers. This year we altered three 10 by 12 picture frames and made them into dry erase boards. We covered the outer frame with lots of buttons and puzzle pieces. I love the project because we can do it together, but it really depletes my button stash! If anyone has a bunch they are not using, let me know I am in the need of buying some buttons - actually LOTS of buttons. ;o)

I used to not add the puzzle pieces, but it really helps cut down on the button count and it kinda is cool - considering I am sure school teachers feel they are always caught in a puzzle of life and learning/teaching. LOL!!! Thanks so much for offering me some buttons - I will email you!!! U R the BEST!
