Well, fast forward to present day. My son is now 5 and tomorrow is POLAR EXPRESS DAY in kindergarten. All the kinder classes get to wear their pjs tomorrow (last day of school before the holiday break) and they are going to watch Polar Express. WOHOO. So, last night, (YES, LAST NIGHT), I had the above memory resurface and I thought OH MY… There won’t be another POLAR EXPRESS DAY…. I better get some silver bells and leather straps! So, this morning I am driving by Michaels. I know that I wanted to go there but couldn’t remember why. So, I sat in the parking lot for 3 mins. Still nothing. Decided to drive home and be productive. And bam. Ah, now I remember. So, when I went out again, I hit Michael’s. AND there was NO run on the silver bells this year! YAY! I thought this would be a simple, quick project. It had the potential to be. And then I couldn’t just leave it alone.
Anyway, here it is. I made them for all of my son’s class and his teachers. It really is an ornament for their tree. One side says the line (above) and the year. The other side has two of my favorite A Muse stamps – santa silhoutte and Believe.
I had to laminate them because I thought the 5 year olds might be too rough on just cardstock.
