Christmas Gifts

The teachers on my grade level decided to celebrate the holidays with a progressive dinner, where we visit each person's house, have appetizers and a drink, and move on to the next home (and don't worry, we had a driver). It was my first time doing something like this, and it was SO much fun!!

At the last house, we would be exchanging gifts, and we had to keep them to $5.00. I went to the Dollar Tree, picked up a few of these glass containers, personalized them and baked some goodies to fill them up. Everyone LOOOOVED getting a little personalized gift, and they'll be able to fill them with candy, use as pen holders, etc.
(Oh, and I liked them so much that I made myself one too LOL)

Hope you liked my little creation! :)

Fall is my favorite time of the year! Not only is the cooler weather finally here, but everything pumpkin spice is in store!! It was a hard decision between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, but Christmas will forever be my favorite. I still feel like a kid when I decorate my tree while listening to Christmas music.

With the holidays, comes Secret Santa at our school. I decided to get a head start by making this Candy Bar Holder using my Snoopy and a sentiment from Gingerbread Wishes...

Here's a different angle...

Happy Halloween

Hello crafty friends!
Here we are at the end of the month, and I'm already on a countdown to Halloween…it's not a holiday just for the little ones! I've already purchased my son's costume, and am in the process of purchasing goodies for treat bags for my son's class and my students.
With all of this in mind, I decided to make a Halloween treat box for my Dilo en Espanol Design Team post today...
I used the set Frases Simples 2...
As always, thank you for stopping by!
