Teachers are grossly underpaid and under appreciated, in my book. I love it when I get the chance to do little things for them to let them know how special they are to us. This week is teacher appreciation week at my kids' school, so I decided to make some cookies for the teacher appreciation luncheon and some extra little treats for my kids' individual teachers. These little fruit cookies turned out really cute, I think...especially the strawberries. How cute would these be on top of a cupcake? I found the darling little ceramic berry baskets at Michael's while shopping for supplies yesterday, and those sparked the idea for the "berry best teacher" baskets. I wish I would have picked up a basket for myself. I don't know what I would use it for, but you can never have too many receptacles for "stuff", in my opinion, especially when they are this adorable! :) (Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures in this post...it was REALLY late at night when I finished these, and I was tired and out of good light for picture taking. These had to be delivered early this morning.)
The gift tags on the apple cookies say "It Takes a Big Heart to Shape Little Minds". I didn't create the graphic. I found it online as a free download and created a printable to make the tags with the saying on the front and my business card graphic on the back.
