Accidental Artful Thursday

Well, saying that I'm not the most organized person on earth, doesn't really do it justice.
I'll admit, sometimes library books don't get turned in on time and teacher appreciation week
gifts are a wee bit late.
O.K, so I've always wanted to participated in Julie Collings (theadventuresofbluegirlxo)"Artful Thursdays" Her Thursday posts are definitely one of the highlights of my week. I've just never gotten around to it. Well.... this week is "teacher appreciation week" at my child's school. On Monday it's supposed to be a flower, on Tuesday a little note or bookmark, well, as I said, on Thursday at 6am I got around to making these sweet little bookmarks with my boys.
They are super easy, I cut a piece of pretty two sided paper, had the boys write a sweet note, used packing tape to "laminate" them and then punched a hole and strung pretty seam binding ribbon. Voila!!! "Accidental Artful Thursday"

Oh yeah, these are the adorable little bouquets we made (also Thursday morning) that were supposed to be given to the teachers on Monday. Hey, better late than never... Right???

Have a lovely weekend
