Transportation Parade

My daughter's preschool had a transportation parade this year where each child had to wear some form of transportation and the parents got to help them build it. 

My daughter and I searched the web and she decided on her own that she wanted a pink and purple train and that's exactly what she got.

We started by collecting some good size boxes and created the frame

She helped me paint the entire thing in pink paint that we picked up at the local hardware store. I bought purple tape from the craft store which made the striping part way easier than painting them. It was essentially blue painters tape but in purple.

I used a toilet paper roll and paper bowl for the smoke stack

The wheels are just cardboard cut out to circles and painted

I added some cotton balls the day of the parade for the smoke

Baby Minnie Thank You Cards

This cutie just turned one and her grandmother asked me to design some thank you cards for the special occasion. 

New employees

We recently got a grant at work which allowed us 12 new positions that were much needed. Because of this we had to do a little shake up causing the 6 supervisors to have new employees under them. I decided to do something cute and special for my new investigators and this is what I came up with. It was a last minute idea so I didn't have time to design anything on the computer (next time). 

Back to School Teacher Gift

This year we heard that our teacher and aide loves hand sanitizer so we thought was a better gift than just that. I created this cute little tags with a chalk board and books. One card reads "Because you're going to "touch" so many lives this year" and the other one says "I'm ready to get my hands dirty" 

and because I never posted these pics at the end of last year's school year

We gave one to each one of Bella's classmates. All you need is a package of Kool-aide and a cute straw. I made tags with the kid's names and it says "Have a Kool Summer" 

Save the Date

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this already but I'm planning a relative's wedding. It will be March 2015 at the Ritz Carlton Grand Lakes, Orlando. The Save the Dates have been sent out and we are full speed ahead now. I will keep you posted as we go along.
