Cheapest Teacher Gift EVER!!! 12/12

My two little kiddos are both in preschool. I have to make 4 teacher gifts because both of my children have two teachers. I was trying to come up with something that was cheap but also cute. I as a teacher have always wanted one of these Crayola pictures but still haven't received one. I'm hoping this will be the year. Fingers crossed :) I was checking out Pinterest and there are tons of the cute Crayola letters. However I stumbled across the cutest card ever to go with it.  I found the card idea at www.ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com I love the name of her site. I feel the same way. I should be mopping the floor instead of writing this post. But this is more fun right?
 These were so cheap basically I bought a cheap frame from All A Dollar, some Crayola crayons, and Tacky glue.. got to love Tacky glue.
 So I made an editable card if you would like to use it as well. The only problem is that your child's name has to have an A in it for the card to work. Luckily both of my kids do. I hope yours do too! If you would like to grab a copy click on the picture below. This is the second time I've made an editable product. So if it doesn't work let me know!! Thanks!!! I used Pea Dacia for the font.

Now for the 12 in 12: I'm linking up with Miss Kindergarten and the Teeny Tiny Teacher.

12. Favorite Movie you watched: I know what your thinking lame. But when you have two kids under the age of 5 these are the only type of movies I get to see anymore and actually it was really cute.
11. Favorite TV Series:  Downton Abbey, I can't wait for it to start in January. I'm so hooked.

10. Favorite Restaurant: Kneaders, It's a local place and I love it. They have soups and salads and killer desserts. I eat there almost weekly. I'm afraid they might start calling me by name.

9. Scariest thing you have tried: Selling items on TPT. I know so scary but seriously every time I see that I have feedback I get scared. I don't deal well with criticism and I'm always so scared that the feedback is going to be bad. Seriously SCARY!!
8. Favorite gift you received: I know this is going to sound super cheesy but my children. I know I sound like one huge cheese ball but seriously. I believe they're a gift and I'm so grateful I get to be their mommy! I use the word I know A LOT!! Sorry this picture is super blurry!
7.Favorite thing you've pinned: I live by this quote, It is seriously one of my favorite and I found it on Pinterest. I think this quote works perfectly with children and their mistakes.
6. Favorite blog post: http://www.hive2nd.blogspot.com/2011/01/chants.html My very first post just because I had no idea what I was starting and I'm amazed at how great the blogging world is.
5. Favorite Accomplishment: Graduating from College. My parents didn't graduate from college and I was the first in my family. The funny thing is things have changed a lot since then both my parents went back and have now, including my younger brother. I like to think I helped them, I think they realized they could do it too.
4. Favorite picture: I'm a picture FANATIC I take pictures almost every day so my favorite picture today is a picture I took yesterday.
3. Favorite Memory: My all time favorite memory is skydiving with my husband. I was scared to death and I didn't think I could do it. In fact I even asked if maybe I could stay in the plane while everyone else jumped out. Well that wasn't going to happen. I was glad I made the jump but once is enough for me.
2. Goal for 2013: BE ON TIME!! I'm really bad at this and I REALLY REALLY NEED to work on this!
1. One little word: Sleep, I really need some right now considering tomorrow I have to get up at 6 and I'm doing this instead. Super Kudos if you read all of this! Thanks and link up too.

  4. You are so sweet. Thank you for the printable. Im going to use it for sure.

  5. First of all those bees are super cute :) I can totally relate to your feelings about TPT! It is very scary to put yourself out there, but I'm finding that it is well worth it! I love your goal for 2013 and it is one of mine as well. I cannot seem to get out of the house on time, and I don't even have kids! I have no idea how any one with kids could possibly do it :) I love your blog and am your newest follower!

  6. Thanks for stopping by, your blog is so cute!
    I relate to you in many areas, I am so nervous about all my stuff on TPT, I just want people to like it!!
