TGIF everyone! I’ve been waiting for today all week! LOL Not because I’m not totally in love with my new class, but because things never run smoothly in September as they do in June. All I do in September is talk and talk and talk, oh, and talk (and talk and talk). EVERYTHING needs to be explained from how to print the date to how to sit in front of my rocking chair. Kind of like Ms Plut boot camp! LOL However, all this prep work will pay off in a few months when I can stop micro managing my students and have them pretty much self sufficient in our daily routines. My main goal right now is to keep everyone happy and excited about school and I think I’m accomplishing that :) I came home dog tired Tuesday night and the only relief (besides a glass of wine) was getting inky. I had placed the doily and the new Stronger Love set down on my desk as I left the studio last Sunday, knowing that I had at least 2 ideas for Teresa’s Viva La Verve sketch this week. As my friend, Lynn, said recently, this sentiment is perfect for so many cards, love, anniversary and even sympathy. I grabbed some lovely Studio Calico papers, the doily on my desk and this sweet little number came out :) I hope you head over to the Viva la Verve Forum and join in the fun! Complete all the sketches this month and you could win a $100 gift certificate to the Verve store! Wowwee! That would totally come in handy with all those fabulous new stamps and dies in the store right now! Good luck and have an awesome weekend!
