Awww. . .my Sweetie

a.k.a:
Stinker
Tootie McFloofer (don't ask. . .)
Pumpkin Pie


Here she is, working diligently on her valentines to give out to friends at school


Who knew she was such a wizard with a gel pen??? Not I. Nor do I know how she ended up a leftie. . .Not a leftie in the bunch as far as I know.

Here are the finished pencil cases:


We used this way cute sample/template designed by Laurie Schmidlin. Thanks, Laurie!


The part I *really* wish I had a picture of, is the white gel ink on the end of her nose and all over her hands when she was finished! I was too quick with the wipes--I will have to come up with another gel pen project soon.

We made these cards with her classmates:


Just decoupage with watered down elmers glue and tissue paper. . .we will be stamping the sentiment today in class. (Thanks for all your help yesterday, Katrine!)

There was some serious paper curling going on as they were drying, hence the staple "kisses" in the corners.

These are gift buckets for her teachers, the principal and the secretary:


Everything not SU! on these buckets was purchased at Wal-Mart.


And then last night. . .she says "What about Mrs. Johnston, Mom?"

And I say, "Mrs. Johnston is the fifth/sixth grade teacher honey. . .the kids in her class will get her something nice."


Oh, who am I kidding? I wouldn't want to discourage generosity, right??

I made these for the other teachers in her school. Just so Regan would have something to give them. . .nothing too involved. . . on occasion I can restrain myself. Rare occasions :)

Can I just make a card now?
