Babies on Babies!

Since I have effectively gone to work for two and a half days out of the last three weeks due to wonder break and snow, I have been able to decompress with a ton of crocheting. Good thing too, because evidently there is something in the school system’s water- I have two babies at my school coming up, and one at a neighboring school!

Crochet has really be my go-to for gifts lately, especially since I started seeing so many crocheted item for $1,000,000,000 at Anthropologie (that’s my, “one day when I go state or federal or become a traveling consultant and can afford” store).

For baby #1 I chose to do a blanket with a few different stitches and some bows. She’s a 7th grade Math teacher who is endlessly energetic and wonderful, but doesn’t have a ton of family around so I figured every baby needs a little blanky-

The second baby is getting some little stuffed animals. The Math mom is very into her church, and I figured he/she’d already get a blanky since the only thing churches make more of than babies, is baby blankies. I found an adorable pattern on Etsy by Madelenon. Her patterns are easy to read and turn out well!

I am finishing up for the last baby (a fellow counselor in another school), but will post as soon as I do!

Lemonade!

Today was our first Saturday make-up day, and boy did those parents tuck-and-roll those kids right out for a free Saturday! Smart little cookies they are, as I would have done the same thing, you betcha.  It was a full-fledged day, and the kids and staff alike were really positive and productive.  I decided to make a little treat for my teachers, and handed out these cards this morning.  I mean, I was busy, but those ladies and gents were classroom-ready and took to their feet for the sixth day in a row this week!  We certainly made lemonade with our Saturday lemon (plus, I still think my snowcation was lovely). The image is below if your teachers are needing a pick-me-up.  I just sized it and inserted/copied the image on a business card template (mine had ten per page) to staple to the lemonade pack.
