Teacher gift

I took a can washed it out, dried it and then painted it.  I let it dry over night and then I hot glued some stones onto it.  (I found this can idea on pintrest, (I think).  It's been forever since I've seen it.)

  Anyway, then I posted pictures of the cans on fb and asked my friends what ideas they had for my cans.  I got some really good responses, such as planting a herb garden, and making them teacher gifts as a pencil holder, or flower pens.  I asked the kids if they liked the pen idea and here's the finished look.

  Thank you friends for the great idea!  I had to keep one for myself!

So for any of you that are still following me after taking a year off, let me tell you whats happened.  We've moved into our new home, had a baby, and are finally some what settled.  I've quit stampin up!, but am still creating.  First, I'll share the card I made for a swap tonight, then come back to see my teacher appreciation gifts completed.  (hopefully I can post tomorrow).

Here's our newest little member, Ava.
And here's the card I made tonight.
