First Day of School Card

My best friend's oldest started 1st grade this past Thursday. I wanted to send him something to let him know I was thinking about him on his big day. I found this on A Child's Year cartridge and thought it would be perfect for him. Hearing his sweet voice a few days later calling me to say thank you is why I love making and sending cards to people I love. Good luck, Brett Brett!

Open House

I'm heading to Open House with Caleb in a few to hear and learn all about what's going to happen in 5th grade this upcoming year. I still have a hard time realizing that this is his last year of elementary school. WOW! I wanted to post a few pictures of a gift that I made today for his new teacher. I spoke to her last week and she seems so sweet. I also snagged the role of HOME ROOM MOM while on the phone with her. There is just something about that title that I love and scares Caleb at the same time.

I wish I could take all the credit for this idea but I can't. I got the pencil bouquet idea from The Rachel Berry Blog but didn't have any vinyl to create the wording. I dug thru my mounds and mounds of paper to find something related to school and loved the numbers. My Cricut did the rest of the work to make it turn out so cute. Caleb loves it and said that his new teacher is going to love it. If he likes it then I must have done something right.

Can you say neglect? I can with a frown on my face. I have neglected this blog, my creative side and especially my Cricut. It's all sad, I know. So what am I gonna do about it? Turn my frown upside down and do something about it.

I've got to find better ways to balance my day so I can play in my scrapbook room. I feel like I'm not being productive at all with my days outside of caring for my home. I so want to have that blog that people wait to read and get ideas from. I have the ideas stuck in the back of my head somewhere way back there but I just can't seem to find them. I need help, inspiration, a pat on the back or possibly a kick in the butt.
