Birthday Bash - Day 9

Wow, we have been truly amazed by the participation for the first week of our birthday bash! I don't think any one-year old has had such a wonderful party. But we are only at the halfway point, so hold on to your party hats!

Today's sponsor is Create My Keepsake. The prizes today are awesome:

* A Mimi Impression Urban Tote in Pink Chocolate (MSRP $75.99)
* A Mimi Essential Tool Tote in Black (MSRP $49.99)
* Three, counting 'em, three $25 Gift Certificates to Create My Keepsake

Let's see, what will be our challenge today? You've given me ideas on valentine's projects, using tools, using specific supplies; what other ideas do I need? Oh yeah, I need ideas for gifts for that overworked and often-underappreciated group of professionals: TEACHERS.

So, post your favorite, creative, adorable teacher gift idea (card, layout, mini-album, altered/decorated piece, whatever) to the gallery at Create My Keepsake. The deadline will be 6 p.m. EST tomorrow, Saturday, February 10. ETA: Please, let's make these newly created items to keeping the playing field a little more level. ;)

Also, sorry for the delay in announcing the winners from the 3 Bugs and Tool challenges. We will definitely have them by tomorrow. We have been pleasantly surprised at the huge number of wonderful entries!

do these have to be items created today, or can it be something we already gave to a teacher?

To keep the playing field more equal, let's make it something new, okay? Sorry; I will try to be more explicit next time.

Many of the items in the gallery at Ck right now are not new projects-- I have seen them at other sites- so how are you going to work this out

Erica said...

Anon, I would give the people who were so fast to post the benefit of the doubt. Some people may not have visited the Pub Blog since the original post. It did not have the "newly created" stipulation in the original post. Maybe they have not seen the update.

It said post your "favorite, creative, adorable teacher gift idea " And the newly created was added later. I was going to post something I did but came back here to check out the other festivities. LOL And I was reading the blog comments. And saw there was some questions. And reread the blog post again. But if I had not done that then i would not have known. And I think that is what is happening.

People saw the original post and went from there. They probably do not know.

My Teacher Appreciation entry

http://www.createmykeepsake.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=12529&cat=682

This was a real fun one - I'm not so much for creating the traditional "school teacher" stuff - not that I don't truly appreciate their dedication and efforts - I do!.

Enjoy, Lila

I figured with all these fabulous sweet treats I've seen for teachers, they could use a nice hot drink to wash them down. Here's my insulated mug:
