Pin It


Teacher Thanks

Happy Saturday! It's the weekend! Whoo! Hoo!

Here's a card I made a few weeks ago and seems appropriate since I've been *living* at the school! ha! The base is SU Bordering Blue, which retired, but I've always loved it.

I'm finishing up a project here at home and heading back to school...still some more details to finalize. My room actually looks pretty good, but there's still more I can do. I'm going to try and make myself stay away tomorrow. I get so obsessive-compulsive, it sucks! I probably wasted two plus hours yesterday obsessively scrubbing the desks and trying to remove every last stain and bit of tape residue. Don't even ask how many Mr. Clean bars I used! ha! The day before it was the walls, baseboards, door trim, etc. It smells good in there at least!

Here's a pic of my library I took with my iphone last night and facebooked. I got that rug last year (you may remember, hee!) and it was pretty stained by the end of the year. Well, it cleaned up great with that Spot Shot cleaner. I've avoided pillows in the past because of lice, but we haven't had any cases for the last 3 years, and this pillow and case were so dang cute at Target, on sale for $7.49 each, I couldn't resist!

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Sweet card! That library area of your classroom looks very inviting. It's nice to hear a teacher care so much about her kids and her classroom. The kids are lucky to have you!
