This Mummy pot is for Do-Dudes teacher. She is a breath of fresh air! She always positive, smiling, caring and truly tending with love and compassion to her class-not only that but she is a Mom of 3 at our little Nazi school (well that is what everyone else calls it until their kiddos start going there and then they say, "Why didn't you talk some sense into me and make me see the light--I SO WISH (with great enthusiasm and sorrow) I would of done this SOONER!) Don't worry, it is okay if you think my school and my kiddos is a Nazi school-I will still love ya!
This is for Blue Boys Teacher. He is in the big K this year at the Nazi school. Let me tell you Blue Boy's teacher is another one who just rocks! He is (yes I said He) AWESOME! Love my kiddos teachers! I didn't know if he would really like the mummy pot so instead I got a small pumpkin and put vinyl lettering on it and added school ribbon & red ribbon around the stem and tied a little measuring tape and tag that says "Richard C Edgley stated the. . . TRUE MEASURE OF A MAN. . . (backside)" You can describe a man in inches, pounds, complexion, or physique. But the true measure of a man is by character, compassion, integrity, tenderness, and principle. Simply stated, the measures of a man are embedded in his heart and soul!" We hour and thank you for your TRUE MEASURE: YOUR CHARACTER, COMPASSION, INTEGRITY, TENDERNESS, AND PRINCIPLE! --I stole this from a Father's Day gift that RS had given the men at church and since Mr Batman is a new member I thought this would totally fit better than a Mummy.
Just thought I would share! I am just in a blogging mood! Have an awesome day!

I made this little treat for one of the sweet ladies that are on my list to visit each month. Our families go way back and she was my mother-in-laws spy when it came to church. She would let it be known if the boys snuck out or not. So I made this for her for her birthday. That sounded kinda weird-sorry. This is so simple. It is a mummy pot. I took a small tara cota pot and hot glued ripped muslin onto it. Before I finished I made a nose out of extra muslin and put it under the top pieces so it looked like a nose. Then, I took lime green paint and sponge it all over and took wood footballs and painted them black and then put a little white dot on it so it looked like eyes. I filled the pot with some good candy. Then I put cellophane over it and tied it with a couple different types ribbon. At here ya go, a cute little mummy!
I now have a six year old! Every year for my kids birthday it is a tradition that they wake up with balloons over their bed and on their ceiling. This is what was left by the time I got in there with my camera. They always love it! Just one neat way of starting their day off special! I love ya Blue Boy! Love your Momma
