Is this tacky?

In lieu of gifts I am just writting thank you cards to my daughters teachers? Money is really tight this week and its the last week of school. I have written out my sincerest thanks to them both and even joked that I wanted to show them my gratitude instead of giving them another #1 teacher mug.

Is it cheap or tacky??

  • Sounds like you're doing just fine.

    We moved in the middle of the school year and my son and I made a small christmas tree ornament sized cross stitch pattern. My son started it, but ran out of time to finish, so I finished it for him. It actually became a family thing. My husband matted it and we went to Walmart and got a frame for it.

    I didn't think about the crossing guards at all. He walks with two adults and a horde of about 30 kids to and from school.
