Here is a quick Christmas card I whipped up. I wish I had all day long to craft--I sure do miss it being at work all the time. I love teaching, but c'mon, who wouldn't want to craft all day?!
POSITIVE NOTE OF THE DAY: It's half way through the work week! I'm applying to start my masters of education program this week. Wish me luck :)

I know I've already shown you all this tag, but I'm entering it into the Whimsie Doodles November Challenge which was to create something with a tag. Well, it's a tag, and I used a Whimsie Doodle imagine so yay me, I'm entering! Swing on by! They are also considering someone for the guest spot for January-- woot!

Here's a quick Christmas card I whipped up other night. I like the simplicity of it for some reason. I've been hoarding that poinsettia for about 3 years now--but I've recently given up saving my things for "special" projects...the quicker I get rid of them the quicker I get new goodies!! :)
Positive Note of the Day: Parent-Teacher Interviews for term one are complete. I only had 7 out of 16 parents attend--I was a wee bit disappointed, but it's their children so I guess I don't need to feel bad. But all the hard work is over for a little bit- can't wait to just get back into the usual classroom things now that I'm finally over this terrible cold!
Give Me Back my Five Bucks is offering the chance at winning $500 cash to put towards your financial bucket list. My financial bucket list includes: 1) Paying off my CC debt 2) Paying off my student loan (probably take me another 10 years! *sigh* 3) Save for a down payment on a house 4) Start saving for an emergency fund 5) Start a savings fund.
In my budget for the next 6 months I've actually started a massive CC repayment plan. Included in the budget is a savings and emergency fund--yay! It's going to be a tight squeeze..which equals no shopping for a year or so probably...but I think it'll be worth it.

This is a card I whipped up for my mom's friend who wanted a "missing you" card to send to her family. She didn't want anything too crazy or wild...hmmm...hope it isn't...heehee!!
Positive Note of the Day: My mom and one of her friends came to visit me. It's super welcomed especially since I am sick. She cooked me a pot of soup last night! :)

Boy oh boy it has been a busy week. Spent 17 hours of my week doing out report cards. They are done, passed into the principal and now they are handed back for revisions. So I need to devote another 1-2 hours revising and then printing again. Super fun.
And guess what!? I'm sick AGAIN. Another terrible cold...blah blah blah. Same thing all the time!!
Here is my to do list for today since my weekly list went completely down the drain last week:
- Wash bedclothes and fold other clothes
- Vacuum carpets and sweep floor
- Go get more juice and cold meds
- Start my snowmen tags for a swap
- Finish recipe book for Christmas gift
- Online Christmas shopping :)
Is that all!? Maybe I should relax so I can feel better...hmmm...

So I got this idea for Simple Sunday from My 1/2 Dozen Daily. This is totally one of my fave reads, I always stop by there every day. From this comes my inspiration to start my own Simple Sunday. I'm not feeling the best today, so I'm thinking it's back to bed to do some reading and cuddle with my puppers for me!! Hope your Sunday is going well.
On my "to-do" list today (with the way I'm feeling this could be a 3 day list heehee) is:
- Do 2 loads of laundry (DONE!--Actually I managed 5!)
- Clean master bathroom
- Lesson plan for tomorrow (DONE!--Hope I'm not too sick to make it there!)
- Set up a classroom Boggle game (as seen on Pinterest)
- Create 2 Christmas cards (DONE!--Finished 2 Christmas cards plus one custom order "Missing you" card!)
I hope it isn't too ambitious for today. I was going to go shopping but that involves a 1-hour car ride to and from, so forget that :)
