I do not have anything to post today (have to confess that I mailed several things off without taking pictures)!  School has started and I haven't had a lot of crafting time.  Boy, have I missed it!  It has been a busy month in other ways, also, including a celebration of my 60th birthday.  I guess it was good to have a celebration because I had not realized how many friends I actually have!  It is almost overwhelming.  I am the luckiest woman I know.

The main reason I am posting right now is that I want to be sure everyone knows about the Link Up for Pink affair that begins Oct. 1.  Click the button on the right to find out more.  This is a cause that we can all support!  Hope to see you there!

Sympathy Card

My daughter called the other day asking me to make a simple sympathy card, everything she found was too elaborate or just said the wrong thing.  I used the Mucha Flower from A Day for Daisies and 2 coordinating papers, inked with walnut distress ink.  I was pleased with it, and have made a couple more for myself.  I even printed a sentiment of my own inside in a matching color.  I learn so much from reading everyone's blogs.  Thanks for the inspiration and tutorials.  They really are a big help.

School has begun, hence my absence here.  (Oh, and had to get a new computer, what a pain!)  We are already 3 weeks into the school year, a couple of my students even commented on how fast the time is going already.  Hope they still feel that way in February!  I had been expecting an easier load this year, and so far that's held true.  I'm plunged into an early round of special ed. meetings (I do all paperwork, make all contacts, and conduct all meetings) so I  haven't had much time for myself, but I don't plan to give up my card making.  I do love it!

Thanks for visiting me!
