A Birthday Surprise + Request
Hey, it’s my birthday! I spent my birthday eve (birtheve?) doing what I love most — creating something pretty for you :) I’m so excited to share that custom address stamps are back in the shop! These are one of my favorite items to create because these tiny little things can make such an amazing impact.
Speaking of things that can make an amazing impact…
In lieu of the gallons of Sour Patch Kids I know you were thinking of sending me, I would love it if you’d consider donating to help my students read. Research shows that if children can’t read by the time they reach the third grade, they are four times more likely to drop out of high school. That fact is compounded by poverty, which unfortunately is the reality for most of my second graders. My school has a very tight budget and cannot afford to buy dictionaries this year. My students would greatly benefit from having this resource. If you choose to donate, in return I promise to send you photos of 22 smiling 7-year-olds — how’s that for a great deal? :)
