Report Card Mania

Yes, it is that tme if year again.  To be honest, I am not really sure where all the time goes in a school term. But, here it is... two more weekends before my report cards are due, and I am trying to balance work, school, and home life. All with a threat of a possible cold looming. I want to be thinking about getting ready fo Christmas, but that is really hard to do if I am consumed with assignmens, marking, and report cards. However, I have set myself some goals this weekend, with rewards along the way to help keep me motivated. This is making all the difference!

My reward prior to starting them today, was taking the night off last night to rest. I am currently working on several projects at the momment. I am working on an Advent Calender. (I think I will have that finished today, so I will post later tonight.) I completed my Christmas Cards for friends, family and such. But, will not be posting those because I would like them to be a surprise for all of you. I will be working on my Chrismtas card for my students. I usually always make them a card to hand out at our Christmas Breakfast party. Then I am working on some Christmas decorations for my co-workers. Just a little something, and a care package for the secretaries at my school. They are always so much help. I have lots to do to complete these. But, I enjoy doing it so it is worth it.

I am contemplating that next year, I migh enter a craft fair, and sell some of my creations. I have never done this, but think I might. We will see, I might be busy with other things next year, but one thing is for sure I won't be working on my master's. Yeahhh!!!!!!

Girl's Night Album

I am enjoying my evening to myself tonight. I have beenplaying in my scraproom since dinner. I finally finished off my Girl's Night Album. It was such a fun night, and the pictures were so much fun to scrap too! I could make the layouts really girlie! Love the pinks! Then I played around selecting photos to make a small acrylic album that I can have on my desk for display. I don't have many pictures there, so I thought this album might be a nice way to show them off. I find the acrylic albums so challenging but fun at the same time. I am also going to try another project. I am going to tray to make a little card bag that looks like a cupcake. I will post pictures of it when it is comlete! That is if it turns out....

Christmas Card Package

After taking a picture of my new stamps for today's blog post. I couldn't resist making a set of cards with this adorable little elph stamp. I plan on making some more cards with the other stamps very shortly. I am hoping to use this as part of a gift package for last minute gift ideas. It is fun to make these packages almost makes me think that I could sell them. But, alas, where would that be?

A Christmas Stamp Set a Reward for a Productive Weekend

This is one of those weekends where I feel single. Andrei has worked day shift on both Saturday and Sunday, so I have been home alone to putter about. I managed to sleep both weekend days. This was by far a very lovely treat.

I worked on my Imaginative Science Unit for my course work. This is my final project for the semester. I have a really good start. I was even able to get some feedback from my professor on the project, so I can incorporate that feedback. Now for the last couple of hours I have been playing in my scraproom...a luxury these days. I am currently working on an All About me 6x6 page for a swap I am in. I belong to a message board, and all 19 of us are creating a page for ourself and everyone else in the group. I had some difficulty originally, but I think I am on track now. I was able to create a design. However, I don't know what I would do without my cricut and cuttlebug. I use them for every project.  I will post the finished product once it is done.  I need to go get the pictures printed now. But, I think I will leave that for a Tuesday night project, since Wednesday is a holiday. I will enjoy a little excursion while Andrei is working his last night shift.

The pictures is my reward for workin so hard. These stamps I found at Micheals while shopping for some Christmas Gifts! What a great price! $1.50 each. They will be so much fun to colour! And I can use these for tags and such.
