I love blog hopping, you meet such amazing women out there but most of all you find the most amazing ideas that people so kindly share.

I was over on my sweet friend Courtney’s blog Women Living Well and she posted some inexpensive gift ideas to say “Thank You” to teachers, sunday school teachers and so on. I love the ideas so much that I could not pass up the opportunity to share them with you either.


The Executive Homemaker is loaded with great ideas and files to help us with creative ideas in all areas. They had a great idea for Teacher’s Appreciation week with a smore bags. I love it and hope you do to. Run on over to their blog and they have the template for you to print. Your bags can be ready in no time.
