Oh the life of a teacher--tomorrow it's back to work. We've had such a nice break with all four of us off. That makes it even harder to go back. We've been catching up on movies and playing with all the new toys. Today, after over a month of searching, I finally got my hands on a Wii Fit, so that's been our fun for the day. I'm already feeling it, so I know I'm going to be sore tomorrow!
I wanted to share a couple things I've been working on. I attempted to make thank you cards for all my students who spoiled me with gifts, but gave up after about five. I can't do simple and quick, apparently. I went today and bought thank yous. I just knew I wasn't going to have time to make 20+ cards and still get everything I needed to done. Here's a couple of my completed cards. I used CTMH Caprice papers and Snow Friends stamps. You can't see in the pics, but I filled in the "snow" with Stickles.
For Christmas, I had photo calendars made at Costco for everyone. Well, I neglected to make one for myself, so I created this desk calendar over the last few days. I used CTMH's Display album, Moment in Time Stamp of the Month (calendar), Word Puzzle stamp sets and various paper packs. I love the way it turned out!
Now I can have beautiful reminders of my boys all day :)
Even though I couldn't get a kit since they were sold out by the time I could get the website to work, I still want to do this project. You can see all the info at Becky Higgins blog. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will make this kit available again. If not, I may just have to make my own. In the meantime, I'm thinking that this is exactly the kind of scrapbooking that I have time for :) Here's a couple of pictures from my list so far.
Making pizza--this was the activity Austin wanted to do for New Year's Eve.
My Peppermint hot cocoa--complete with candy cane (and of course, my favorite mug--anyone else still miss this show?!)
