This time it is a desk calendar made with cardboard and a desktop calendar scribble pad. If you can't get your hands on one we have a printable 2009 year calendar that you can print right from this site.

Teacher Gift Pack Freebie

With the holidays approaching it is time to give some thought to a special gift for your child's teacher. A handmade gift is really something special and can show how appreciative you are because we put a  lot time, sweat and love into it's creation.

To help you this year we have a little teacher pack with a printable template for a post-it note holder, 4 greeting cards, pen wrap inserts and a box envelope to store them in.

Simply print them onto firm cardstock. Cut, fold and glue. Pop the goodies into the box then finish it off with a length of ribbon tied around it to secure it closed.
