Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Schools Out for Summer......

Well that's what my children have been practising all week, ready  to sing at 3pm on Friday! And that reminded me this morning that I should really be making something for my son to give to his teachers. I am always at a loss what to give them, I am sure they get far too many chocolates and smellies, and fortunately no one at our school is likely to give them like a Gym Subscription like I heard on the radio the other day! 

So I guessed a teacher could never have too many notebooks, well at least they always have use for one! So here are the two I made, both variations on a theme, and both using a favourite PaperArtsy Stamp of mine which says 'Time can never take away our most precious memories' and Edwards teachers have given him so many memories.
I am so looking foward to having the kids at home but with that comes a severe lack of spare time to craft!
I expect I will fit some in somewhere though!
Happy Holidays!


  1. Lovely gift that I'm sure the teachers will treasure. I bet they won't be able to use them for ages as they are such keepsakes and so special.

  2. Beautiful notebooks, I'm sure they'll be gratefully received. Good luck with your crafting time!

  3. These are gorgeous Nicks am sure they will love them, fab colours. Have a great time with the children. Annette x

  4. These are lovely Nicks I am sure the teachers will be thrilled with them - I am sure you will be able to find time to get messy with the children and have some happy crafting times Lizx

  5. The gifts are perfect, I am sure they will have been gratefully received and more importantly, used! Love the sentiment you used it seemed very apt. x

  6. Lucky, lucky teachers! Bet they loved them. Hope you have a lovely summer with your children x

  7. Great notebooks Nicks... you'll be the Teachers Pet!!! LOL

  8. Gorgeous gifts - and a great thought over chocs! I know what you mean about the summer, lie-ins and no real deadlines, but it does cost at the desk, for sure!

  9. Great notebooks - notebooks that not only a teacher would want! Lynne M x
