another 'thank you' gift idea

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 |
i always thank the ladies that work in the office at my school.
they have 1200 kids (about 700 families) that go there, but they always remember my name!
and so far, we have had really really good teachers, so id like to think it was them taking care of me.
and if not, they just put up with me coming in asking for weird stuff.
(example:can i use the teachers lunchroom's soda machine? i don't want to drive to smiths for a fresca and i really need one.)
last year AND this year, i made them mulling spice gift bags.
of course, i started with fabric bags.
then i added an orange, an apple juice juice box and the following in a plastic baggie

1 T ground cinnamon
1 T ground nutmeg
1 T ground cloves

i attached it with this little card that says...

enjoy the warmth of the holidays while the scent of simmering spices fill your home! slice the orange and simmer them on low in apple juice along with the contents of the spice bag! add a small amount of water each hour to continue the aroma!

and yes, i stole this idea from blue cricket design.

I just spent over $4 for a small can of mulling spices so I really like this as our family LOVES spiced cider.
