Thought I'd show a couple of things I made tonight that are going in my class for give-aways. (I teach 5th graders and they still like these kinds of things.) These are not my original ideas except I used the faces from different things on different things.
Several years ago I wrote everyday...just 5 things to say thank you for. I am now redesigning this blog to reflect things that I'm glad I can say thank you to. 1. Of course, there's family and friends (even in the worst of times it's nice to know you do have family...and friend). 2. There's my pillow. It's the best pillow ever!!! I've had it for many years...a feather pillow I got from my grandma in North Dakota...now that's old. 3. I have a home that's been my home since I was 6 months old. I live in the home where I was raised...and I raised my girls in this home. It's not fancy and I like that too. It's a home that's served two generations now. 4. I have a hobby that I love because I can share it with family and friends... scrap booking and stamping. I haven't done that much scrapping lately, but I have done things for my classroom and especially since it's Halloween I have had a great time constructing things to put candy in and give away to kids. 5. I'm glad that I have music to listen to. I love it! I like classic rock best and then it goes on to blues, jazz, some country, classical...just not hip-hop or rap. My daughter is trying to help me appreciate this genre, but I'm not there yet. I also like to play the piano. I don't do it much anymore, but it used to keep my sane.
