Candy, candy, everywhere but not a one for me!

I think I forgot to post this. This was a project I did a while back with my friend, Michelle. I love the PaperTrey stuff. It's so easy to use and produces nice, clean work. We stamped the labels a long time ago but I just finished up the tags and such last week. I actually forgot that I had these "made" (i.e. labels on nuggets in tins) when I got to making all of those peanut clusters! But it turns out that, I remembered why I made these in the first place. I made them for my kindergartener's teachers - rather than giving them the peanut clusters. WHY, you ask? I had heard that some teachers (and I read about this on Splitcoast, too) throw away handmade food items because they have NO idea where it came from. I COMPLETELY get this. There are still 3 teachers of his that I haven't met. Have no idea who there are, where they sit, what they look like, etc. So, I'm sure they feel the same way about me. They have 900 kids in that school. And all the kids gave hand-made food,... well, you get the idea... Anyway, at preschool, it's different. Everyone knows everyone. You meet the teachers everyday at drop-off and pick-up but kinder, that's just different. And I respect that. I would totally do the same but then again I'm a germ-phobe and a little on the paranoid side. As if you didn't know that already. :D
