PAYING IT FORWARD

Way back on June 29 I was the lucky (and very surprised!) winner of a Silhouette SD, courtesy of Mckmama (thank you!).  I was so excited that I won something (since I am typically not so fortunate).  After a few minutes of  "oh my goodness, I can't believe I won a Silhouette!!!", I thought to myself  "calm down, although it's very exciting, you already have one!".  Shortly after that I felt guilt "Why did I even leave a comment.  There are so many people that wanted one and now you have TWO!". 

So, instead of keeping it to myself, selling it on ebay or giving it away on my own blog, I (with the help of my bestie, Terra) decided that I should donate it to my boys' art teacher, Mrs. G.

We wrapped it up...


Added a couple of goodies...


And then delivered it to her (after school started back again...boy was that a long wait!).


She was so excited and appreciative.  It felt so good to "pay it forward".  I have no doubt that Mrs. G will put it to good use.  Actually, I am headed up the school at the end of the day to give her a lesson on how to use it :)

I want to thank Mckmama again for allowing me to donate this fabulous gift.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day!

such a sweet thing to do! I know that as a teacher, she was grateful you thought of her and her "kids".
