More Teacher Gifts

My kids are finally getting out of school.  I'm afraid it is going to come a day when Christmas is no more than an optional teacher workday on the school calendar.  But that's a different rant story all together.  We got the teacher gifts together, and since it was late at night (b/c do I ever do anything ahead of time?! No.) the lighting is pretty bad.  Since I had several teacher gifts to do this year, we kept it cheap simple.  Hopefully, it really is the thought that counts!
I'm pretty sure I saw something like this on Pinterest, except I think the cup had Crystal Light packets in it.  Of course, I couldn't find it in the gazillion pins I have.  Anyways...I found these cups at a reasonable price and filled them with Starbucks Via Iced Coffee packets, some candy, Crystal Light, and a little crocheted wreath pin.
My crochet skillz are limited, but I think these are cute.  Add a safety pin to the back and you have a Christmas pin!  I started out trying to make a Christmas tree, but that proved too complicated :P

Today my plan is to make a few simple treats and wrap, wrap, wrap!  After taking the kids to the dentist of course.  A mother's work is never done.
