PVC Loft Bed

I have always liked projects made out of PVC.  Some people are so creative!
The idea for a PVC Loft Bed from Mark Rehorst is amazing!

A Cut Above the Rest Scissor Gift

I tried to make the Super Cute Scissors that were shown at Skip to My Lou, but I was having really bad luck.
I couldn't get my paper to stick to the scissors well enough or sand the paper down close enough to the scissor blade.
So, I decided to eliminate the paper from the project all together.
I had my kids draw designs and write their teacher's names on the blades of a pair of scissors with Sharpie markers.
I put a layer of Diamond Glaze on the sides and let dry. 
 We then attached the scissors to a cute tag.
The teachers seemed happy to receive these as an end of year gift.
And now, they will always know which scissors are theirs!

Tension Rod Bunting

This Tension Rod Bunting from Country Home is really pretty.
 I like that you don't have to put any holes in your walls to hang it.

I am so FORTUNATE to have YOU Teacher Appreciation Gift

I saw this cute idea at Skip to My Lou, and decided I would make these for my kids' teachers for Teacher Appreciation next week.  The school asked for money donated for new chairs, but I still wanted to send something little for the teachers to enjoy.
I found some cute, colorful take out boxes at Michaels.  They were less than 50 cents a box, because I used a coupon!
I decided on La Choy fortune cookies because I liked that they were individually wrapped.
I made up tags in my digital scrapbook program.  I fit 6 of them on a 5x7.
I stuck them to the filled take out boxes with double sided tape.
A cute, easy gift, that I think the teachers will like.
