Back to School Theme

Last week we did a Back to School Themed Workshop! There were only a few of us this time, but it was in the middle of the day and summer is coming to a close. We will do the same projects in August. I'll send out that information soon to let you know when and where.

Get Well Soon

A little Get Well Gift for a special little boy. The mom of this little boy was such a blessing to my classroom last year. My students always loved when she came in to read. She has two wonderful boys. Yesterday she mentioned that one wasn't feeling so great. So my boys and I decided he needed something to help him feel a little bit better. Rylan and Trace love to color! So we thought a new coloring book and a new book to read would help! Hope you feel better soon!

Little Inspirations Bookmarks

It's almost time to head back to school. So that means I have started working on back to school baggies for Rylan and Trace's friends. Well, actually just Trace's so far. Trace will return to the same school this year. His bags are a little easier since he attends a Christian school. This year Rylan will attend public school for the first year. That also means I have to alter many of the things have put in the baggies in the past. It won't be that hard (seeing as how I do it for my own classroom). Recently, I was required to stay off my feet and REST! Rest isn't easy when you have two small children! I was having issues with my back so I of course became obsessed with E-bay! While on E-bay I came across a rather old Stampin' Up stamp set called Little Inspirations. The minute I saw it I had to have it. I knew exactly what I would do with it when I had my hands on it! So here is what it did:

The first book mark is stamped in Daffodil Delight. Then it is layered with Brights DSP (Pacific Point) and then on solid Daffodil Delight Card stock. The second bookmark is stamped in Pacific Point. Then it is layered with Brights DSP (Daffodil Delight) and then on solid Pacific Point. These bookmarks will me one of several items to go in back to school goodie bags for Trace's classmates. I will be back soon to share the rest!

Happy Birthday

Daddy's Birthday

Sunday was my dad's birthday. Rylan loves cake so we had to put a cupcake on the front. Trace loves blue so we had to make sure it had the color blue somewhere on the card! Simple but tasteful. We gave me a gift card to eat out, so we made a quick envelope for it.
