WHAT, Valentine's day is around the corner!!
This is my year to be ready, early.
Showing our love and appreciation should freely flow for us on a daily basis. Sure we say "love you" and thank a kind stranger for holding the door for us, but do we really show our love to everyone with the fullest capacity of our being? I know, scary thought; right?
I am one of those "out there" people, who will come right up to you and be your new friend whether you wanted one or not. I will hug you and love you and invade your space. Yes, similar to this sweet girl
Everyday I send my kids off to school and wait for them to arrive home having learned something new. This has been a habit we have had for over 10 years now. With one daughter in high school and the other in elementary, I know I have taken for granted all the hard work and effort these amazing teachers have invested in my children over the years. I couldn't do it, nor would I want to. I have 2 kids that drive me crazy, I couldn't imagine what 30 of them would do to me lol
This year my goal is to spread love and appreciation everywhere I go. My first challenge is to start with the amazing teachers and staff where my children attend. I am talking office staff, teachers, and the other fabulous people who have made it easy for me to drop my kids off every day knowing they are in good hands, learning something new.
Please join me in using your talents and the enormous (yes, I know I am not alone here ;) amount of supplies you have lying around, to create something wonderful for someone who makes your life easier.
I will be starting with this adorable pencil box inspired by Kristin Courtney. She took something so simple and made it amazing. That is what I want to do with this idea.
Who are you going to thank this week and how are you going to do it? Show us your projects and your story behind it. We will be pulling ideas to post on the blog, newsletter and Facebook. If you project is chosen you will receive a nice gift from us.
