Winter Penguins

Every once in awhile, I will make something that just makes me SO excited. That happened to me today. With the holidays right around the corner, and Christmas just about a month away, I am Christmas crafting. Do you ever feel that you need just *one more* little gift to be able to check someone off of your list? I feel that way every year with the boys' teachers. If you have read my blog before, it is no secret that I adore Target, and even more, the Target Dollar Spot. SO many wonderful little treasures there! :) The other day, I found these adorable little clear paint buckets in a variety of colors and picked up a bunch. Then wandering about the Christmas department, came across these ADORABLE penguin ornaments. I remembered my new PTI Winter Penguin Stamp set, and had a lightbulb moment. I picked up some fake snow at Target too - a huge bag for $2! I will be adding these little guys to the boys' teachers gifts this year. I am so pleased with how they turned out and they were so easy to put together.

Oh my goodness SOOOOO adorable! I love Target. Penguins make me smile, and I know your sons teachers will love them.

On a side note I have two boys also, almost 4, and almost 1. They keep me busy!

Oh my Audrey, you have made my heart melt! I haven't been to Target in over a year, but with the red and green season upon us, and that little penguin sitting on my stamp table, I just may need to go soon!
