I saw this idea here and loved it. It was much easier to make than it looks and saved me TONS of money this year on gifts. I found these miniature wash tubs for 3/$1 and bought little hand towels to go with the soap 18/$4. I'll let Amy from The Idea Room tell you how it's done. My total cost for each gift was $2.22 per teacher.
I am a lover of costume jewelry. I would say I have a little of my Granny in me when it comes this stuff. It's so fun to dress up a simple black dress in countless ways with just jewelry. Being that most of my wardrobe consists of black, grey, black, and tan I get to have a lot of fun with different styles of jewelry.
I have been looking for a necklace like the one above in stores but haven't found the one I was wanting. Today I took my coupon to the local craft store and bought some glass pearl beads and a leather cord. I wanted to make sure I had different colored pearls because I own 2 pair of pear earrings, ivory and black. Plus...I love the black ones best.
This is one of my favorite Halloween crafts and I love that my kids helped me make these special treated too. Halloween is a fun time for many and for us we love the treats much more than the tricks. Here is a fun tutorial on making miniature candy apples and a really cool download from one of my favorite paper craft shops.
