Boost Morale With a Treat!

It's a bit of an epidemic, but low staff morale is spreading across many schools and districts.  When I was asked who I wanted to send a card to, I immediately thought of the teachers I work with!  I went back and forth for a bit, and I had a revelation - let's use the art from their kiddos!  As anyone who has worked with kids before knows, the things we treasure from our students are creative and come from their heart.  I used the online service to create these cards...

I let the kiddos in on my plan - we were each going to decorate a small slip of construction paper, and I would piece them together to share in a card with their teachers.  Look how amazing their art turned out!

Next step - scan the pics.  (OK - really, I was in a hurry.  I took the pics with my phone and uploaded the pics to Then I started browsing.  {{swoon}}  This was tricky, since I had a *ton* of cards on my "favorites" list.  Here's a peek...

Picked this one...  So easy!!  
Uploaded the pics, personalized the card, and checked out.  Super easy.  Two days later, this was in my mail box...

And here's the finished product, along with one of the thank you letters from the students I work with to their teachers...  We had so much fun!

Please note that I was given a small quantity of cards from Treat to try them out.  I was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions (and all mistakes) are mine.  May contain affiliate links.  :)
