Teacher Appreciation gift ideas

If you don't already know Teacher Appreciation weeks starts on May 3rd.  As alot of you already know....I am a crafting idiot.   I am great at copy catting!!!  Since I have been bogging I have come across some really nice ideas and free printables for most all occasions. Now that I am a stay at home mom, I have been trying to do things for my kids that I always wanted to make cupcakes for school instead of buying them, sending in cute handmade gifts for the teachers instead of buying them.  One would hope that my kids appreciate all the time I spend doing theses things just to put smiles on their faces.

To make things easier for those of you who may or may not be crafty, I put together a few blogs you can creep to get some ideas.

  Go here  Bake at 350 to find a detailed tutorial on how to make these adorable popcorn box cookies.  If you are short on time then you can even use the free printable HERE from Domesticated Lady and just put an envelope of microwave popcorn

click  Anything but Perfect for a free printable candy bar wrapper (Aren't these so cute)

The ladies over at eighteen25 are very crafty...They also have a few other Teacher appreciation/Back to school ideas

Sorry for not posting...Gastric Bypass, babysitting, cleaning the clutter

I am so sorry my fellow bloggers for not posting lately.  There has been alot going on.  Mr. Amazing had Gastric Bypass surgery a few weeks ago and he had some complications that kept him in the hospital for a week.   He was home for not even 24hrs and suffered a near fatal allergic reaction that landed him in ICU for a few days.  So I have been a little stressed out.  Now I am trying to get back into the swing of things and get this house in order so the for sale sign can go up (hopefully in a week or so) I have so many closets, cabinets, and drawers to clean out I don't know if I am coming or going.  On top of the regular trials and tribulations of everyday life,  I also  been babysitting (gotta pay those bills) and I am just extremely exhausted.  I have not been sleeping good and it's really starting to effect me.  I just lack motivation to do anything and all I seem to do is worry about every little burp or fart Mr. Amazing makes. 

Hopefully I will back to posting regularly soon
