One thing that I have accepted about myself is that I am not a crafty/creative person.
It doesn’t keep me from trying every once in a while. My kids usually cringe in fear (embarrassment?) when I announce that I’m going to try to make a gift instead of buying a gift.
“Homemade gifts are special.” I say. And when I make them, they are “extra” “special.” If you know what I’m saying and I think that you do. (See: These creations for a reference.)
Today is my daughter’s last day of Kindergarten. I wanted to give her teacher something special. I decided to try to replicate a gift that we had made for The Teenager’s kindergarten teacher. I couldn’t find the picture of the one we had made eleven years ago, so we did the best we could based on what we could remember.
I was up until 1am last night putting the final touches on it.
This is what Gabby will be giving to her teacher today.
We tried. We really did.
