About Me

My photo
I am a person who loves life and loves capturing it in pictures and recording it in many ways. I have been happily married for over 40 years to my wonderful husband Mike. We have raised 4 daughters, were foster parents for 11 years and are now raising 2 of our grandchildren. They are the love of our lives and the light in our eyes. At this time in our lives, we would expect to be planning for retirement, but instead we are planning for the future of these children. Starting over so to speak. At the ripe old age of 50, I found myself as a mom of a pre-schooler again so it's the second time around for us, thus my title. We attend church and teach Sunday School. Life is never dull, as you can imagine. Enjoy the pieces of our lives and allow this grandmother some bragging rights occasionally, ok very often.

Teacher Gifts Done!

So I finished my little project for the first day of school. Super simple.
First you start with a coaster from Outbacks or anywhere. You just steal take these as your leaving. (They toss them anyway, we're recycling here people.) I have even asked others on my way out for theirs.


Ok next you add some pretty paper, I covered both sides. I Mod Podged paper onto coaster and then added another coat to seal it. Add a binder clip, some ribbon, a post it note and Viola! How cute is this?


I made a few, guess which one's going in my kitchen? I need to bribe thank McKane's teachers in advance for their patience and kindness. And these little goodies go a long way. So get busy and make your own.
