Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Teacher Gifts

The end of the year teacher gifts can be a bit tricky for me. I always give a gift card, but like to do something a little more personal as well. This year I decided to make little bulletin boards/memo boards for the teachers.

I painted a 16x20 canvas and added ribbon, Prima flowers, some stickers from Creative Imaginations, and cork. Sealed it with an acrylic sealer and voila!
