Signs of Fall

If I had to pick a favorite season, it would be fall. Not too hot. Not too cold. Brisk morning air and red leaves falling from our tree out front. And these:Ah, fuzzy socks, a comfortable hoodie sweater and a pink cup of coffee. Oh, how I adore you! I am all warm and toasty right now!

I am making a special gift for Collin and Isabel's main teachers, but thought I would make a little something for their Art, Gym, Music and Library teachers as well. They often get neglected around the holidays. I want to show them that they are loved, too. On a budget. LOL I had these great small orange lunch bags that I have been hanging onto for I don't know what. Add a cute bag topper and fill it with candy and we have some gifts! Yep. I am one of THOSE moms who like to do little gifts for each holiday. It is fun! And when I taught, it made the day a little brighter. So I do it. And they love it. Here are the bags the specials teachers will be getting (once they are filled). You will have to wait on the main teacher gifts. Bwahahaha!

Oh, and do you want to hear the coolest thing today? I have been politely and leagally "stalking" the Clip it up blog and facebook page and I won a prize!! Are you ready? I won this:

from Clip it Up! How awesome is this? You know how I am about organizing and have been eyeing some of the shiney silver things on their site (http://www.clipitup.com/). I am very excited! I see a few more things on their site that I just might have to have. And I have an Amazon gift card just waiting to be spent.

Hey, have you checked out the Paper Posies site yet? So many pretty things to see on there. And it only takes seconds to sign up! So what are you waiting for? I want to have a VERY long friend list on there. :) http://paperposies.com/index.htm

Off to play! See you soon!
