Extreme Gratitude

My blog is mostly about the art or crafts I make, but today it is about gratitude. If you know me, you know my husband and I have 1 son, Michael. He brings us the most amazing joy and we are very proud of the man he has become. When Michael was in collage we use to send him care packages, a tradition my parents did for my brother and sisters and I in collage. Every now and then we still send one to our son, just for fun. Well, today I went to get the mail and guess what was there? Yes, a care package from our son and his girlfriend to us. It had art supplies for my classroom, music, games, and a picture of Wrigley Field for my husband who loves baseball. My heart was so happy, yes for the sweet supplies, but more for knowing we have raised a son that is kind, loving and who always has us in his heart. I am filled with gratitude and love for my family. Photobucket

I'm back at school so I don't have as much free time on my hands. The first week is always the craziest, but I'll try to keep up with my blog. There may not be a lot of written text, but I'll put some project pictures in. I'm excited about my job this year. I have tons of new lessons, a new principal, and lots of great kids! This little make-up bag is recovered with a bit of crazy quilt. I love hearts, so I stitched one on the front. 001-5

Yarn "Bombed" Stool

I left my stool outside and the birds picked the seat apart to make a nest. I yarn bombed it and I think it is better than ever! Photobucket Photobucket
