Teacher Gift

I made exactly one handmade Christmas gift this year and it is for Harper's kindergarten teacher.  I had planned on making her a Super Tote but I ran out of time so we went for a mug rug because according to Harper she "really likes coffee."

Taking these photos gave me a chance to test out the new lens that my husband bought me as an early Christmas present.  It is one of those things that I didn't even think I needed but really love having.  It is similar to the lens I was using before but it's an upgrade and I love it :)

I backed it with this Denyse Schmidt County Fair print.  Between that and the linen on the front it is pretty heavy duty.

Also, isn't this guy just the best?


Don't forget that Lark Cottons is offering 20% off through Monday December 23rd with coupon code 13kitchen.

  3. Where were all of you crafty parents when I was teaching???!!! ;) Seriously though…what a sweet and thoughtful gift. And your son knowing her "coffee habit" makes it even better!!! And I have to ask…what lens did you get?

  4. The mug rug is so pretty, I'm sure she'll love it! The pictures turned out really cute, what lens did you get? My next big camera purchase is a new body, but I will need to stop shopping at IKEA for a while to afford it, haha.

  7. Great mug rug. That Harper is an observant gal. I sent candle mats out with Yankee Candles this year. Hubby and I are taking bets on whether his family will figure out what the little quilts are for. :)
