Thanks a Latte

'Tis the season to be thankful.
Thankful for those who have helped us in our quest to raise well-round children.

Today, we say Merci, Grazie...Arigato to...
Our piano teacher...who understands when we leave our books at home {for the third week in a row} and allows my girls to make beautiful music.
Our dance instructor...who has the ability to push the girls to higher levels and make them love dance all at the same time.
I am so thankful that they make it their goals to help {my} children become better people.
They help them feel success.
And hardwork.
Sometimes a little to handle it and grow from it.
They give them a sense of belonging to something special.
To developing skills.
An opportunity to be active and use their brains on a different level.
They give them their time.
And their attention.
And their praise.

And for that...we say...Thanks a latte!
Measure and cut the paper to fit the gift-card.
Glue the bottom so that card can't sneak through.
Slip the card into the holder.
Wrap with string.
Adhere self-adhesive label {with message} to a coordinating piece of paper.
Cut paper around label and apply hot glue {dots} to the corners.
 The hot glue {sots} give the gift-card holder some depth.

Thanks a latte!
 We're off to celebrate at the year-end piano recital!
