A few things to share

Between my finger, my craft room being turned upside down ( I started that before I hurt my finger, so it is taking me FOREVER to get it put back together), and taking online CE courses so that I can renew my license I haven't been able to craft much. :( 
I have to say that I haven't had to "study" for a long time, so it has been hard to get into that groove and get it done. Not to mention it is so hard to read and retain things when you have kids around! LOL!! I don't know how people do it!! I am half way through a class and have 2 more to take...
So in the mean time I thought that I would post some other fun things!

This is a picture that my 6 year old drew at school yesterday! I thought she did an amazing job!!

 And this is a card that my mom sent to me for Mother's Day! Of course the words inside really touched me (thanks mom) but I LOVED the outside too! My daughter knew exactly who this card was for when I opened it! She said "Look Mom! It's your favorite colors!"

On other EXCITING news! I got my E2 last week and I am so excited to be able to play with it!! I was able to carve out a space in my mess to set it up! Now I just need to carve out some time!

Teacher Appreciation Thank You

I got this idea from a make and take that Robyn did. Thanks for the idea! She had this in a folding card but I just did a 3 by 3 square of green and stamped a saying on the back and this cute froggy from Create a Critter cartridge. My Unfrog-getable stamp is from Robyn's More Punny-licious stamp set. I used the Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder.
 The stamp is used on the back if from Stampin' Up Full of Life set. 
We are going to punch a hole in the corner and tie them to our gift on Friday! I don't have to do that part! YEAH!!! lol!!  Making 55 of these took a lot of time especially with my finger!

Teacher Appreciation Menu

I was asked to make some menus to pass out to the teachers last Friday so they would be able to plan for this week. This is what I came up with.
The whole "theme" for our Teacher Appreciation Week is "Date Night" so everything we are doing for them goes along with what you might do on a date night. Each day is a progression of the date! It has been really fun!

Teacher Appreciation Flower Pots

My daughter liked the "flowers" that I made for my National Scrapbook day project so much she wanted to do one for her teachers instead of real flowers.
She helped me pick out all of the paper and she helped me cover the pots! I did the rest after she went to bed. She was so excited to give them to her teachers today!

My Project from Robyn's N.S.D

I hope you all had a Great Mother's Day and National Scrapbook Weekend!!
I have been working on Teacher Appreciation projects and didn't get to do all of the projects on Robyn's National Scrapbook day but I plan on it! There were so many cute projects!!!!

Here is the project I made for the challenge I was in charge of for Robyn's National Scrapbook Day.
If you want to see the video I made to go with it click here or visit my You tube page! 


I used my Paisley Cartridge to cut out my flowers. I used the shoe 1 and perfume icons with the button feature on.  My stamps are from Robyn's new stamp set "Hope & Courage"! This was a fun project to make! My daughter wants me to make on of these for her teacher instead of taking a real flower!! Looks like I am going to busy today! Tomorrow is the flower day for our Teacher Appreciation Week!!

Don't forget! Tomorrow (Saturday May 7th) is National Scrapbook Day! Come and join us for lots of fun on Robyn's website! Click here to go directly there.

My Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day

Also did you check out Robyn's new stamp sets she released today? They are all awesome!! Check them out along with her new and improved web design! She made it a lot easier to find all of the goodies on her blog! Make sure to check out her "Order here" button for a list of her retailers that carry her stamps and her new retailer Signature Crafts!

I meant to post this al earlier today but I got swept away to a Mother's Day surprise at the spa! It was wonderful and much needed!!

I also wanted to update you all on my finger. I met with the Plastic Surgeon on wednesday afternoon. He  was pleased with how it is healing and feels that it should heal without any major issues!! Yeah!! Worst case will be that I have to get a skin graft but I won't know for 6 months on that. So until then I just have to let it heal and take it easy with my finger because it is going to be super sensitive until my nail grows back:( Thanks for all of your well wishes and prayers!!!!

My Owie

I slammed my finger in my car door on Friday. :( It hurts! 
It is amazing how much affects the things I do everyday! I am going to see a Plastic Surgeon on Wednesday so I will have to see what he says. I am going to still try to do some crafting but I think I will be limited a little bit.
