Cute Colleague Gift:::Monday Made It!

I can't believe my summer has ended! The past few weeks have been absolutely crazy! All last week was spent getting my new room together at my new school! Super excited to be starting this school year.

Linking up once again for Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics. There are lots of great ideas so make sure you head on over to her page and check out everyone's nifty DIY's!

I made my 5th grade colleague (who is also new to the school and is going into her 7th year of teaching too!) a cute little first week of school gift. We start tomorrow!! Wowsa!

I found the gift tag over at Miss Lovie's blog who got it from My Sister's Suitcase (a super cute blog with a lot of adorable free printables). Don't we all need a little chocolate and caffeine at the end of the first week...or daily for that matter!

I bought the water bottle (or should I say water mason jar) at Target for $10. Filled the mason jar up with chocolate. Tied two small soda bottles together with some ribbon and viola....adorable teacher colleague gift!

For those of you who are already back in school, I hope your first week is amazing!
