And a BIG thank you to cookiestamper
For sharing your teacher quotes that saved me some MAJOR typing time.
I wanted to make something super special and unique for my twin sons’ kindergarten teachers—yes I made two of these. The time spent I cannot even sum up quite honestly, but the satisfaction and joy of completing these projects is priceless. I have always been my own worst critic and never thought anything I’ve done was worthy of posting. I am very proud of these and wanted to share my end projects especially because the three posters above had a major role in these books. I thank you openly here for your encouragement and generosity in sharing your creations. I’m not exactly a tech babe, so if links and pictures actually appear, I will be buying a lottery ticket. My sons have the two finest kindergarten teachers here on Long Island. Happy Summer to all! Thanks for peeking at my work.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Ok, seriously, the textures, colors and embelli's just totally complete this thoughtful gift. How wonderful that you would put this amount of time in to give back to your sons teachers. Wonderful.

Thank you Pat. Yes it took a LONNNGGG time to make, and I have twins, so yes to do two, I really should have kept track of the hours spent, but these teachers were soooo wonderful and deserving. I spelled "kindergarten" on each page with the 'Defining Alphabet' and used the 'Define Your Life' set with it. Fun, hard work, but oh so derserving of these two women. They both have such a passion for what they do to encourage each child to explore their creativity, enhance their desire for learning and truly care about each and every little person sitting in a chair in their classroom and hanging on to every word they say because it mattered. Thank you for commenting.
