Have a Wonderful Day!

Happy Thursday! How's it going? Hot enough for you?! hahahahaha, what an original thought!


Wow, am I getting busy now that the "final last days until school starts countdown" has started! I have had this Pleasant Av card for a long time, but all it had was the grass, the street sign, and the sentiment. I could never decide what to put on the grass. So In the meantime, when I was working on the Great Stamp Room Overhaul of 2011, I found a tag swap thing with an Andes mint inside (old and ewwwww, from the looks of it, didn't try it! ha!) and this owl on the outside of it.


Lightbulb!


Rip the owl off that tag swap thing and plant him on the grass on Pleasant Av. And yes, I think it works, good enough! Between you and me, I have had that owl punch since it first came out brand new (was it last year's catalog?) and still never used it! Argh! But now it looks like I have! ha!


If you're still here after that long story, God bless ya! Here's another old card, kind of simple, but he seems to go with the other one.




Feel free to skip this teacher part if you like...


Now, my brand new campus was opened today and teachers could start moving stuff in! That's good...and bad...you know what I mean?! ha! But I was thrilled to start getting this huge pile out of my living/dining room. Two carloads later, it's looking much better!



Here are some pics of my brand new classroom, just the way it looked as I walked in, before I started hauling my own junk inside! You can see some pictures from last year here and here, and two years ago here.






Everything is so shiny and new! I'll keep you posted with after pictures, I have lots of ideas! Luckily, I don't need to buy many things (she says after a *little* trip to Target today!), but here's a rug I love, I just wish it came larger...it's only 4' x 6':
Lastly, I'm thinking of starting a teaching blog, unless someone can stop me...


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

You should buy the rug. If you want a bigger one, buy two pieces and stitch them together (Am I helping here?LOL) Regarding the teaching blog, go on and do it! I have been teaching in classrooms while writing blogs about the things I teach. It is actually fun, putting into writing the things that you are usually speaking. And by the way, you cards are neat and cute! I love them!
