Attitude of Gratitude

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I've got many things to be thankful for. Recently I've been really thinking about the teachers my boys have this year. They are patient, kind, smart and very creative. I couldn't ask for better educators for the kiddos, I feel so lucky to have them teaching my boys.

Thought I'd give them a little thank you for Thanksgiving. I got the new PTI die that dresses up a regular lunch bag, cool right, just a regular ole paper sack can be made into a cute gift bag!

This first one went to my oldest's 2nd grade teacher. I've used the sweet little image Alex's Pumpkin from Whimsy and Stars.

The second bag is for ds2 Kindergarten teacher. This one uses another image from Whimsy and Stars, I don't see it in the etsy shop right now, but if you need it, contact Mabelle, she says she can usually get the you the images that aren't currently in the store. Mabelle is still having her gratitude blog hop, so you've got time to enter to win some Whimsy and Stars images.

The bags were filled with a flavored latte mix and bag of Lindt truffles. Just a sweet little thank you to show our appreciation.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hope you have lots to be thankful for too, this year. And as my blogging friend Karli says, "Gobble til you Wobble"!

I hope you and you family are having a great Thanksgiving. These gift bags are darling, both of them with beautiful papers, and beautifully colored images.

Happy thanksgiving Kathy! These are adorable! I'm sure your kids' teachers feel lucky to have a wonderful, supportive parent. Oh btw, no chucky for us this year since we're not all at home this year. How awesome you remembered that! Big hugs my friend~

Kathy, these are fabulous. I know being a 2nd grade teacher I'd love to get this. Most parents (at least in my school) tend to forget about the teacher. We never even get a thank you...I love that you did this for your children's teachers. Well done my friend.
