Teacher Valentine's Gift Idea and Giveaway

It seems like I was just running around doing Christmas shopping and now here I am trying to figure out Monkey's Valentine outfit, photo shoot, and what to get or make her teachers for this Hallmark holiday known as Valentine's Day.

Thankfully we function on a budget and cash and not on credit cards so I don't have bills coming in to try to pay for Christmas but still, funds aren't just overflowing either.  It seems like I'm always needing to buy something for someone.  Don't get me wrong, I love giving, LOVE it!  I really do, but it does take a lot of effort, thought, and planning which can be tiresome at times.  I know that the 14th is going to be here before I'm ready for it so I need to do everything I can to prepare.

I've always had many adults purchase the zebra initial scrabble necklaces at my shows so I knew they were a good fit for any age.

But this year due to my cousin ordering a set I added earrings to the necklaces.
And well the initial scrabble tile necklaces with matching earrings were selling like hotcakes!  And they were selling to all ages, about 7 years old to little old ladies in red hats.  I kid you not!  I saw that moms and teachers and grandparents were getting these sets for themselves and decided that these would make cool presents for Monkey's teachers.  So that was nice to have that part of Valentine decisions taken care of.

I love that they are handmade with love, have put the thought into it for the receiver, and that it didn't cost me much.

I'm bagging them up in little bags with a special note and candy for Monkey to give out.  I'm pretty excited about it. 

I also realize that not everyone has the supplies or maybe not the time to make these and so for those of you interested, I do offer these and have lowered the price to try and help make your Valentine gift giving a little easier on your budget.  So now through Feb 4th, instead of $15 they are now $10.  And if you want them sent regular postal mail without insurance it's free shipping.

What's even cooler?  I have a set to giveaway to one of you readers.  I will announce the winner on Friday the 28th so that I have time to make it and get to you in plenty of time.
