Yesterday afternoon in The Motherhood, a band of wonderfully creative women came together to share their ideas on beautiful teacher’s gifts for the end of the school year. They focused on what they could make that would be both meaningful AND budget-friendly. Check out the amazing ideas that Amy at Modge Podge Rocks and her creative co-hosts came up with…
