Last Minute gift idea

I'll admit the last day of school snuck up on me. I have so many checklists to complete as a teacher that the the parent in me was completely blind-sided. Thank goodness for Target & Family Fun magazine! Flipping through the latest issue I found a super simple truffle recipe (soy milk + choc chips= delicious!) and some "too cute to be easy" pencil shaped containers. The only downside was the enormous mess that ensued...

The complete directions can be found in the June/July issue, but it's always fun to document the process:  src=

Once the truffles & holders were finished up, I whipped up some super easy gifts for my co-teachers. Target had some super cute reusable bags in the one spot that were begging for a crafty hook-up. src=Looking through my plethora of inspiration blogs, I found the perfect one at 320* Sycamore src=

*I didn't read the directions on the dark t-shirt transfers and printed the first batch out backwards* src=

Superfabulous teacher gifts in minutes? done!

Simple is such a relative word.

People who have actual talent for stuff ALWAYS think what they do is simple.

I'm gifted at the watching of television. And snacking.

Now I'm hungry for truffles...

I have N.E.V.E.R. printed those things backwards. EVER.

Nor have I cursed violently after doing so. NOT ME.

It's funny how teachers let the parent side of things slip at the end of the year. Great idea!
