Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
I’ve been told I don’t know how to sit or stop moving, especially into my 6th month of pregnancy. It isn’t in my nature and keeping busy is what makes me happy. I love it! I often get asked how I teach Kindergarten full time and maintain a blog outside of school. I’m not going to pretend it’s easy but it’s totally worth it! That brings me to this post. This time of year is usually full of excitement and anticipation for the summer months ahead. This year is a little different for me. I still have the same feelings but for different reasons with our first little one on the way and making the decision that I won’t be in the classroom next school year. That’s right, I’ll be a full time stay at home mom while turning a large focus onto Within the Grove.
With that exciting news, it’s also bittersweet for the end of the school year to arrive this year. I always have fellow friends ask me what to get their child’s teacher for an end of the year gift. I’m one to swoon over beautiful flowers that will last beyond just a few days by planting them in my yard or home. That gave me inspiration to create a set of labels that read “Thanks for helping me grow this year” to stick in mason jar with a beautiful flower.
The sentimental meaning behind the quote will hit the heartstrings of a teacher while also giving him or her a beautiful plant to place in their home. I love the vintage look of the gift with the distressed mason jar and the watercolor design of the label from Onlinelabels.com.
To see how to create these mason jars in a matter of minutes and for the free label design, head on over to my collaboration with Onlinelabels.com for all of the details! It’s a quick yet gorgeous and meaningful gift to give your child’s teacher the last week of school. Don’t have any children? Make these mason jars and flowers for yourself to add some color to your home. Everyone deserves to be spoiled!
