Altered Clipboards


There are these two teachers at my son's school, that help children become better readers. All day everyday they listen to children read, and help them get through every word. So a few weeks ago the book fair came and I bought them a few books. I pick my son up from school on Friday and he hands me a card. I figure its a birthday invitation, but then I notice the envelope says to the Yoast Family. I'm really not thinking anything of it until I opened the card and there was a $50 gift card to Ruby Tuesdays, from the two teachers I got the books for!! I could not believe it, I still am shocked it was very generous of them. So this weekend I made them each a clipboard and a bag with some goodies in it. Papertrey ink has a stamp that fits perfectly with Avery address labels, so you stamp the label, then it fits perfectly over a Hershey's Nugget. Its such an easy way to dress up candy. I had made my son's teacher a clipboard, and Mrs. Seevers asked where she got it, and Mrs. B. (son's teacher), told her I made it for her. So today when I gave her, her own clipboard she was so happy. I think she might of had a little clipboard envy lol...

hi fellas. I'm actually into shoes and I was digging allowing for regarding that meticulous make. The prices due to the fact that the boots are approximately 220 bucks on every page. But for all I found this site selling them for half price. I in reality love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order them. what is your opinion?
