I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Hanukkah Dilemma










Every Hanukkah I have the following problem. I want to wrap all of my gifts at one time but then I forget which gift I want to give on what night. For those of you who are not familiar with Hanukkah we celebrate for 8 nights and on each night we light the menorah. I made these tags using a new set from Lawn Fawn. I colored a the number of candles to represent each night of Hanukkah (for example two candles means the second night, six candle would be the sixth night) That way I would know which night to give which gift. Am I making any sense? Love this new set, it is sometimes hard to find Jewish stamps so I was super excited to fine this one. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

I'm not very familiar with the traditions of Hanukkah, but I think these tags turned out super-cute! I heart Lawn Fawn.

Oh I love this idea!! I have the same problem! We actually celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah so by the time I wrap them all, I forget what's inside. Super idea to keep them in order for the right night!!
