One Thimble Issue 14 Bonus

I had so much fun designing these graphics as the bonus for Issue 14.  And I want to show them off to you so that you don't miss out - because they will only be available for Early Bird purchases through the weekend!

Easy Teacher Gifts with FREE Cut File

If you are anything like me, the days are passing by much faster than you have time to absorb them or accomplish the things you needed to.  My kids have 4 days of school left, and mama had a list of 400 things to do before that last day of school arrives. One thing I'm less stressed about though this year is teacher's gifts.  Partialy becasue I am no longer the new kid to the rodeo in the world of teacher gifts, but also because I have learned that teachers are happy to know they are loved and appreciated.  Cards,...
