Easter RAKS...

This post is definitely long overdue, but I wanted to thank all these wonderful people for these Easter RAKS that I received.

This beautiful PM card and flowers was given to me by Shirley. I just love looking at this card each day as it reminds me of all the wonderful people that I have met through my blog! Plus, I love the PM image cause I'm a collector of PM figurines too!

This cute little bag was created by Michele. It is so funny to receive this bag of goodies because I made her a similar bag for Easter too. What can I say, great minds think alike, huh?

This cute basket was made by the one and only Mama! I was so lucky to finally meet her in person. Of course she caught me crafting while waiting for my oldest to finish karate. Hey, when you have 4 kids, you need to squeeze in crafting whenever you get the chance...LOL! Mama, I feel like I've known you forever!

This Sweet Pea basket was created by Kristina. She was my daughter's summer school teacher last year and DD2 became very attached to her even though she only had her as a teacher for a few weeks. So every occassion, my DD2 asks me to make a little treat for her to show her appreciation.

This HK bookmarker and images came from Joni. She's another great teacher up at DD2's school and I am so blessed to have become great friends with her and her family.

Here's another basket that I received in the mail from Joni H. This basket isn't that big, but you should see all the goodies she stuffed into it! Thanks Joni! It was such a great surprise!

These HK goodies was given to me from Beth... another great teacher at DD2's school. Yes, they definitely have a great bunch of teachers up at the school. That's why I decided to volunteer my time next year to Chair the Teacher Appreciation Committee! I know, what was I thinking, huh? Well, the way I figure it is if the teachers & staff go above and beyond their duties to make sure that our children get the best education they deserve, then I'm sure I can squeeze a bit of time out of my busy schedule to show our appreciation for them.

Thanks for sticking with me through this long post and all my ramblings... Happy Tuesday!
