Giving thanks~~

I showed you the gifts received from my October tea swap partners. Here is what I made for them. The theme for October's tea swap was Halloween or Thanksgiving. The colors were orange and black.

I thought I would stick with the Thanksgiving theme and used my Stampin up Owl punch as a start.

This is my handmade card.

...and my tea bags topper.

Thank you for stopping by!

Maude -- Handmade with love

These adorable little tea holders were made as Thank You gifts from Maude.  Maude is a student of mine.  She likes to say that she is "teacher's pet".  LOL!!  {wink}

Remember the 3x3 holder I made for the Hip to Be Square class?  Well, Maude made it into a tea holder with Tazo tea bags.

On another occasion, she created this tea bag holder.
Love the flower she used that has some Sticker glitter on it.

Perfect gift for tea for two.

Thank you so much, Maude!! I LOVE IT!! 
PS, the Vanilla tea was very delicious!! :o)

My tea pal, Colleen, was also my August Tea Swap partner. Remember the coloring image theme? Well, here is her package to me.

Handmade tea card, tea bag holder, double stick tape and two "washi" pen sets.

Tags for AUW

We have an AUW (Aloha United Way) fundraiser at work.  Tomorrow is bake/craft sale.  I'm donating these Christmas tags as well as a couple of the Japanese doll frames I made last season for the sale:

The tags came about pretty easy once I got the idea.  The stickers are from NRN, I believe.  Border punch by Martha Stewart.  The clear plastic pillow box was from Heiko on sale, I picked up a while ago.
