My kids had the most ah-mazing teachers this past year. Superheroes. Really. As I sewed up these teacher tote bags over the past couple of weeks (in between all my other WIP's, lol), all I could think about was how much they deserved them. Because my kids aren't always easy. Okay, they are a HANDFUL. And somehow they are all learned enough to pass to the next grade, thanks to a handful amazing teachers.
Just in time for summer (today is my kids' last day of school - eeek!) my first DIY card holder is done! This was the project that you (cute readers) picked for me to sew up in our May UnTutorials challenge.

It's getting a little buggy over here... but not the bad kind of bugs - the cute kind! My friend Rosie of Bustle & Sew is sharing a free sewing pattern to make this throw pillow that's covered in adorable bugs!
I'm so crazy about word art these days. Every time I see an inspirational meme or quote, I want to print it up and tape it on my wall so I can look at it (and my kids will look at it!). But printed up memes taped to the wall are kind of... lame.
