Hello everyone! Summer is in full swing here with bright blue skies, blooming red roses, and fun family activities. Here's a quick peek at one of the flower brooches I made for end of year teacher gifts. I made another one, a beautiful cream and silver one, but forgot to photograph it in all the chaos - I seem to have a knack for always forgetting to do photos before things walk out the door :)
I love these because each of my kids picked out the colors and materials they thought their teacher would like best and then I worked up a flower design to suit the materials. It was really sweet to hear their style advice when we were at the yarn store :)They also made little handmade cards that the brooches just attached simply to like this:
The message they hand wrote inside the cards said "Thank you for helping me to grow and bloom!". They both had fantastic teachers this year and it was a real pleasure putting these together!!
