But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Teacher Appreciation Week - Day #4 - Bloom Where You are Planted!

First, I'd love for you to stop by the Pretty Packages Party and link up one of your packages or Teacher Appreciation Gift ideas!

Second, why don't you stop by and link to the Tuesday To Do Party, too?!!

Again, as I mention earlier this week, the PTA at our school sent home a list of items to send to school each day for Teacher Appreciation Week.
(This week is only 4 days as the teachers had an in service on Monday.)
Day #1 - Pencils (click here)
Day #3  - Markers or Pens (I already had something else...candles) (click here)


Day #4 - a flower

Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers. ~Author Unknown

Here is my version of the gargen basket...

Using a trusty Sonic beverage carrier, I added a spade, shears and a pair of gloves all courtesy of Dollar store.

 Our sweet teacher loves Mary Englebriet.
This tin sign as a great find at Hobby Lobby.
With a paint pen, I wrote a little note to her thanking her for being such a wonderful teacher.

Flowers for her garden and tissue paper finished out the "basket."
***Tip*** Put the flowers pots in plastic baggies to keep any moisture from leaking in the cardboard carrier.***
A sweet basket for a sweet teacher.

Thank you Mrs. S. for all you do!
We'll miss you next year!

You treated your teacher to a week of fun, I love the clever labels and way you presented everything. Your post will be featured this Thursday at A Crafty Soiree, thanks for linking!
