December FEEL THE LOVE Project

Wow, I didn't realize I had been missing for so long.  I apologize, things have just been crazy between school and home.  Seems like I used to handle the fall and Christmas season better than I am this year.

My students and I have created cards again for Madison's Feel the Love project (http://funkycards.blogspot.com/2011/11/i-feel-love-novemberdecember.html).  We have had a good time.  You might notice that the girls have improved their design skills and their cards are a bit more complicated today.  I hope they will continue to show improvement.  Our small school has no art program (typical of schools with so few students), so this is a chance to provide something they wouldn't get to experience otherwise.   

 The first card was made by Katie, using Create-a-Critter.  Katie really enjoyed turning her favorite animals into Santas!
 I did this one.  I tried paper piecing with a digi from A Day for Daisies.  I love their designs, always special.  I think I enjoy coloring more than paper piecing, but I do like the look...  The background paper is from Create with TLC.  I use Paulette's papers often.
Jesse made this card, also with Create-a-Critter.  She had become very independent at using the Cricut and even bought her own (original) to use after she graduates next year!

Thank you for visiting us.  I will try to get some other things posted that I've been working on.  I really haven't done much.  I broke my glasses (oops!) about 6 weeks ago and have been wearing an old pair.  My eyes are so tired at night that I just can't do much close work.  I really miss it!  Hopefully my new glasses will arrive in a day or two and I can get back to normal.  I can't even read my new book!

Have a great time preparing for your holidays.  I love this season!
