Default MMTPT550 ~ February 5, 2019 ~ Get Your Cray-on

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE MMTPT550

“Get Your Cray-on”

Anyone is welcome to play in the weekly Teapot Challenge - the more, the merrier! You automatically become a “TEApotter” the first time you play. Where will you find inspiration? Will it be from the teapot? The destination location? Something of the recipient? Or could it be from the challenge itself? Remember, your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not a requirement. Just have fun!

CHALLENGE:
Let’s get in touch with our inner child today by using crayons on our projects - either using actual crayons or images of them.

As always, there are some great tutorials out there to try with your crayons:
*In honor of today’s recipient, you can have extra cookies if you use school bus yellow on your card!*

DESTINATION STATION:

During the holidays, Jacqueline read about a man named Curtis Jenkins, in the news. Curtis is a school bus driver in Texas. Each day he’d chat with and ask the kids on his route what they wanted for Christmas. Curtis kept a little notebook and wrote down all the children’s wishes. He and his wife had decided to forego getting gifts for each other and instead, bought each child on his route a Christmas present – one they specifically wished for. He wrapped all the gifts and handed them to the children as they got on the bus. One child even received a new bike! Curtis’ kindness and generosity struck a chord. After all, sharing warm fuzzies is what the Teapotters are all about! Kindness matters and we’re going to pay it forward to Curtis and flood him with some happy mail. Let’s prove what does go around, comes around.


SEND YOUR CARDS TO:
Mr. Curtis Jenkins
c/o Emily Gruninger, Principal
Lake Highlands Elementary School
9501 Ferndale Rd.
Dallas, TX 75328
USA

Here is my card<o

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday MMTPT550 Challenge Gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT550 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!


Do you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or just some warm fuzzies? Consider nominating them as a guest of honor (a.k.a. destination station) for an upcoming tea party.Post your request HERE or send a PM to jacqueline.

Here's mine: MMTPT550 Snoopy & the School Bus Driver

As soon as I saw the teapot I knew what stamp I wanted to use. Thankful for yesterday off work because I only got time to make it then.

I’m allergic to most techniques
I have school stamps but no crayons.
I have a card I want to make for Curtis, though. We’re getting an ice storm so I might not be able to upload it right away.

I received an e-mail from the Principal:

Hi Ms. Valade,

Curtis has received TONS of cards, and he was greatly appreciative.

Thank you,
Emily

My card to Mr Jenkins just got returned today. I rechecked the address, I copied it correctly. But there is a sticker on the envelope that says the address is wrong. Any ideas?

Bummer, sorry to hear that. Mine hasn't come back ( and I do get a couple of returns every year) and it sounds as if many have arrived. All I can say is that twice, maybe three times over the years I have had a similar experience when the person had not moved and the address I had used was indeed the correct one, yet it came back with that sticker.

I don't consider USPS (or our service, admittedly) to be 100% reliable at any time. Unfortunately.
