teachers rock!

This past was teacher appreciation week and just wanted to share what I whipped up last week for Little Relish's preschool teacher...



I did all the labels with my silhouette using the print and cut feature. I found most of the quotes from ideas I pinned on pinterest.

If you haven't played around with the print and cut feature on your silhouette, then I highly recommend doing it! It will change how you use your silhouette forever! Here is a quick tutorial I found on the silhouette blog...Tutorial: Print and Cut.

On another note, sorry for being a bit MIA the last few weeks. Since getting back from the cruise, I've been busy working on baby relish's birthday party. She turns 1 in a few weeks...whaaaaaaaaaa! I have finished all the decorations and the invitations have been sent. We are doing a library theme and super excited! Promise to post pictures of the party and decorations!

We also got a new bird, Sunny! Cookie Bird was needing a friend since we can't handle her as much as we would like with the little hands and the furry mouths around. She is just a baby and not sure if she will be a "she" in a few months but they are happy together!



I've also been doing some t-shirt up cycle dresses using this pattern from Functional Threads on Etsy...

This pattern is great for taking a t-shirt that is too big or small and making it a dress.

If you have a t-shirt that is just the right size but want to make it a dress, try out this pattern...Tessa by Create Kids Couture.
I will post pictures of all the finished up cycles next week!

If you are loving these upcycle dresses like I am and want one NOW, you can find ones already made on etsy or check out this great facebook page of Gnu Creations. She uses the proceeds to help pay adoption cost...Rockstar! She is a friend of my sis-in-law's and her creations are adorable...I have four!!
