Well where to begin? Let's start with the card. I made this for the last Paper Crafts Magazine call. This one didn't get picked up but in happy happy news another one did! So finally I will be published. To say I am excited would be an extreme understatement. I was shaking as I mailed that baby off! LOL! Anyway this card was for the paper piecing call. Let me just say cutting out that flower was so hard! But I love the way it turned out and now that it has been rejected I can give it away to a friend. ;)
On Tuesday I go back to work so if the blog goes quiet for awhile don't be concerned I just need to relearn how to budget my time. The first few weeks of the school year are always the hardest. I teach in the state of California, home to the world's laziest legislature, where they still haven't managed to pass a budget. I (along with all the other teachers in my district) took a big pay cut and there still isn't any money. The whole thing is beyond frustrating.
I bought a new computer! It was definitely time for an upgrade. I am now the proud owner of a MacBook Pro. Its my second Mac and I am thrilled with it so far. My kiddos will be pleased to be able to play with the old one. I know they will want to be dragging it off to their rooms but I insist the internet be used where I can see it. There is so much bad stuff out there.
Thanks for stopping in today! I will post the card deets below. Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
