Teacher Gift Ideas with Class

‘Tis the season for gifting, remembering those who touch our lives on a daily basis with a token of our appreciation. Our children’s teachers top the list, of course, but it can be hard to find meaningful teacher gifts that won’t just get tossed or put on a shelf.Teacher Note Cards -- Stay in the LinesVintage Note Cards -- Spectacle Display

Thanksgiving Traditions: What are you thankful for? #thanksgiving #peartreegreetings #thankful
If you are lucky enough to have a warm home to go to this Thanksgiving, filled with the mouthwatering smell of roasting turkey and the happy chatter of family and friends, then you have plenty of reasons to be thankful. It’s easy to get swept up in the hubbub of cooking and decorating, not to mention family tensions, and lose sight of what’s most important on this uniquely American holiday.

College Care Package Ideas to Make Mom Happy

College care package ideas #peartreegreetings #college #graduation
My son left for college at the end of August and left a big hole in our family. I don’t miss his messy room or dirty socks, but I do miss our conversations and being in touch with what’s going on in his daily life.

He doesn’t seem to miss me much, if the number of times he’s contacted us is any indication. I know he’s having a great time and is busy with new experiences. Like all moms, I want him to be happy and make friends, but to know that if he’s sad or lonely or just having a bad day, we are still here for him.

Kids Art Re-purposed, Mom Guilt Diminished

kids artworkAll year long my kids create art masterpieces of all shapes and sizes, in every medium from crayon to clay. Most of it gets put on display, albeit briefly, to be replaced by the next masterpiece a few days later. And when it comes off the fridge where does it go? In the pile. Actually, one of many piles stacked in various locations in our house. There is a pile in my closet, under each kid’s bed, on top of the fridge and on the top shelf in our family room. My brain knows that I cannot continue to hoard my children’s artwork, but my heart won’t let me throw it out. At least not right away. I have a few ideas for kids school projects to share.
