Thanks, Emily, for letting me share with everyone today. You have earned this well deserved vacation!
I am Audrey, from One Shoe Parenting. I am an Army wife, mom to 4 kids (5, 8, 11 and 13 years old), an elementary music teacher and run my household on a tight budget. Sometimes I am left to parent alone (due to military matters) and that always brings about interesting moments…
Like the moment we were in a Home Depot store and my then 4 year old decided to throw his shoe at me—again. We left the store, left the shoe at the store and went home. He was stuck with only the one remaining shoe for the rest of the summer vacation (1 1/2 weeks), until he could wear his new preschool pair of shoes…hence the name, One Shoe Parenting.
With all these sweet kids, come many teachers. Since the Holidays right around the corner, there are many opportunities for giving gifts to the teachers. Here is a great gift idea that won’t break the bank!
I used pillar candles from the dollar store…
Grosgrain ribbon remnants….
And leftover upholstery tacks.
Voila! Snazzy gifts, for just over $1.
**the leaning tower of candles! 🙂
That makes this momma happy!
Well that wraps it up for me, hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and feel free to drop by One Shoe parenting sometime! 🙂
