Donnie, Jessie, Hunter, and Fisher stopped at our house for the night on the way to Corpus Christi. Hunter and I played all the games we could and they we painted!
The family that crafts together, stays together. Jeremy started using his GlowForge to make wood earrings for his coworkers. We soon started working together and expanded to necklaces, bracelets, and keychains. We now have a little shop set up at each of schools to help our co-workers find gifts for their friends and families.

Jeremy is moving across the street to the new 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade intermediate school. They will not have assigned classrooms as in traditional schools, but will travel to different rooms based on what they need to teach that day. There are science labs, an outdoor classroom, and an indoor slide. The teachers desks are housed in groups of five in large communal offices. Here is how we've decorated Jeremy's section so far. He will be teaching 4th and 5th grade science.
Another teacher was getting rid of this giant spool and one fo our neighbors at our apartment was throwing out these awesome chairs. Add a little (or a lot) of cut up fabric and now I have a new seating area in my classroom!
I have been out of cards for a couple for a months. I have been making cards like a crazy person since I got out of school. Today I crossed the 100 cards mark!
This will be my last big batch of cards for awhile. I have been making at least 300 handmade cards each year for the last 10 or more years. These cards started from using up the scraps from my scrapbooking and has grown into a project all of their own. The list of people who have been receiving these cards has been growing greatly each year.
Unfortunately, I cannot keep up with my teaching, scrapbooking, card making, and keep a general balance in my life. You will be seeing a lot fewer cards from me in the coming weeks, months, and years.
Jeremy has finally received his Glowforge! He is super excited to start making projects!
