Last day of School...frantically making gifts!



This is for my son Liam's teacher. She is one of those teachers that you get once or twice in all of your school years. I cannot say enough good things about her. She goes above and beyond in everything, is so great with her students, and is a mother of five!

I was going to make her an angel, and my brother's girlfriend asked me how many subjects she teaches. When I told her about all that this wonderful lady does, she came up with the many hats idea, and I thought it was just perfect.





Now I just have to finish up my swaps! I'm good under pressure ;-)

My partner for the bunny swap is Shelley, who has a lovely blog...check her out!http://journals.aol.com/shelleymb47/shelleysweetshabby/
