I am pooped!

I am tired. Tired in general; Tired of work; Tired of being tired.

I feel like complaining and it is only Monday....boy, it's going be a long week! LOL

Working with kids is usually so great. Today is just work. I think many of them are feeling overwhelmed with workload and other expectations. The ones I work with are just 'off'. That makes for a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day!

I wish I could just be at home...purging my belongings. I am in the mood to unload! My SIL is having a garage sale this weekend, so I will be carting stuff to her. I don't even care if I make any money, it is just an excuse to get stuff out of my house.

I also want to scrap and make cards. I was not feeling inspired this weekend, but I am now! I want to just sit in my room, with the windows open and music on, crafting away!

41 more school days (with kids) left until summer break....did anyone else just here Alice Cooper's song in their head????

Cards today - OSW (I made 10!)

I completed a OSW (one sheet wonder) today. I chose a spring page and cut it, allowing for approx. 10 cards to be made. You can really have fun with these, completing a set!

I really need to start giving out cards!!!



A lovely 'Sun'day!

Sun is out and it is perfectly lovely here in Calgary. We had a WICKED snowstorm on Thursday that took the area by surprise. Heavy snow and whiteout conditions. My usual 45 minute commute to work took 2.5 hours and had it not been for material in my car needed for a presentation, I would have turned myself right around and went home. I also had a dentist appointment later that morning. Bad girl I am....first one in almost 8 years. So, left my house at 7:15am; got to work at 9:45; dropped off materials; checked on my coded students; got back in car at 10:00am and made it to my 11:00 appointment in record time of 1 hour 15 minutes for a half hour drive! I was a walking ball of nerves.

I then had a great scrap/card making weekend. I hosted it at my school and had a small group of ladies come in Friday night and Saturday. I loved it. I am going to finish some of my cards right now and perhaps post photos later.

It's Been TOO Long!

Why?!?! I don't know. I just know that I have not been too motivated to much of anything lately. I am taking a quick break from some serious spring cleaning today. I have made some very fun altered notebooks and a few cards lately. I also finished Volume I (of III) of my Italy vacation. It is quite cool. I may make a slide show of it. Stay tuned for some pics.

Post later!!!
