Revisiting the Pencil Bouquet

I thought I would share some photos that a coworker recently sent me of her version of the pencil bouquet that I made for TJ's teacher during Teacher Appreciation week.  Jodi is one of my favorite people here at work.  We discovered that we both enjoy blogging, crafting and being a mom.  You can check out Jodi's blog, Sydney's Sweet LifeHERE
Jodi has two adorable little ones Bryce and Sydney.  Sydney was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at only 11 months old so Jodi blogs about their life of 24 hour finger pricks (yes, that means getting up during the night, EVERY night) and watching every thing that little Sydney eats.  She is also a super crafty sewer and has created a line of pump pouches with really cute fabrics so that kids don't have to be so concerned about exposing their insulin pumps for the entire world to see.  You can check out her etsy shop HERE

Jodi's oldest, Bryce, is getting ready to start kindergarten next week (modified year round school) so she wanted to give a gift to his current teachers at preschool to show their thanks.  After seeing the pencil bouquet on my blog she rallied up Bryce and got him involved.  Here is her version:
She made these 3 bouquets for about $10 total.  You can't beat that!  I love how she added the circles to the ribbon across the front and had Bryce write his own name.  Children's handwriting always makes me smile.
Stop by and visit Jodi and if you know of anyone with diabetes - direct them to Jodi's site!  It's amazing the comfort we can find simply by meeting someone else going through the same things as us.  Happy Weekend!
