Last day of school 2012

Friday was the last day of school for the year. I thought that documenting only the first day of every year will be way more sensible if one documents the last day too - to see how much they have changed in the year.

It was also the very last time that we will have kids in our very beloved little Catholic pre school, so I decided on a whim on Wednesday to make each of the teacher (8 in total)  a little something. So I popped into Ruby's (a treasure trove) and found wonderful bits to make something. In the end I am almost shy to admit that each gift cost me R8,60  - but put together with much love. I then decided to send one each for some of the teachers that was important in the Princess' life this year too and made 15 in total.

I bought crochet flowers, felt, ribbons and brooch pins and glued it all together with my trusty glue gun.
I am very happy to say that I think most teachers loved them and most pinned them on immediately.


  1. how clever are you?!

    and wait - you have a hot glue gun? what do you use it for?

    1. You don't have a hot glue gun - shock! Get one quick! You can use it for a multitude of things (embarrassed to admit that I own 2....)

  2. You are really so crafted. Love those felted flowers you made.

  3. Gorgeous! I love that they are all wearing it on the photos.

  4. I'm sure by the time you add the time to it, it's definitely worth more than the rand amount. They are so lovely and this pictures would make great momentoes for the future. Guess it's the end of an era in your household. Congratulations on the end of an era !!!

  5. Oh I love this post:-) And those gifts are just lovely.

  6. Very cute! I'm sure they liked it a lot and R8.60 x soooo many teachers is quite acceptable I think. ;-)

  7. What a clever idea!!! They are lovely!!


So what's on your mind?
