Hello again!

Well, I'm still here, just haven't had much time or energy for blogging since school started again.  I have 3 new students and 4 who were here last year, and in my high school special education classroom that adds up to 9 subjects that I am teaching plus study halls for freshmen, sophomores and juniors.  I frequently have multiple subjects going at a time.  Thankfully the school did give me a paraprofessional this year, which really helps.  I hold down the fort in my classroom and she either follows students into other classes or works with groups in the room across the hall.  She has already proven herself to be wonderful, I don't think I could be effective with so much going on and no para. 

I have a new card today, a sympathy card made on my CAMEO.  The cut file is a freebie from Cards by Bird.  I highly recommend her files!  Unfortunately this is another sympathy card, but I'm happy to say that I'm getting (a little bit) smarter, I made 2, one for today's funeral and one for my stash.

There is no school today and tomorrow, and, hurray! my hubby has to work so we "have" to stay home.  I cannot think of anything nicer right now.  We've been on the go almost every weekend. I am already enjoying time to slow down and get a few home things done, read a book and craft, craft, craft.  I hope...

Have a great week!

  1. Glad to hear you have a little more help this year in you classroom! Thank you for what you do!!!
    Your card is gorgeous and she makes some wonderful cut files!!!

  2. Gorgeous sympathy card! I love the intricate details and subdue color! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Hope you so some free time to get crafty when not teaching!

  3. As the mom of two special needs kids - THANKS!! I can just imagine the relief of having a para to assist - and the demand of needing to master every single subject.
    This card is gorgeous - so detailed & yet visually calming, perfect for the reason. And good idea to make 2 at a time - it's so hard to make them when you NEED them.

  4. Love the cut outs in the front of this card! Really nice! and...while I'm here my link to the freebie has now been put right and the unwatermarked digi replaced with an unwatermarked digi!

    ((Lyn)) sorry about that!

  5. I love the die cut as well! It has the perfect feel for a sympathy card!

  6. I hope it doesn't sound bad to say this is stylish, but it is. The Silhouette cut is just wonderful as is your neat crisp stamping. Beautifully done!

  7. I'm sorry that you needed a sympathy card, but this one is really beautiful. I'm sure the family will find comfort through it.
