Builders Board

Builders’ Board

SG had a project to be an inventor.  I created a bulletin board to celebrate all of the student’s work.  It was so fun to read all of the different ideas they can and how they created inventions!  This is not my most creative board as I was trying to capture some different words they used to describe what they did.

Thank goodness for the Cricut and having all these different fonts and images to use to make the board more interesting.

 

Are these ideas just amazing for 3rd graders?!  I’m so blessed that I have the time to volunteer and help out.  I thank CTMH for the ability to be my own boss so I can have the time to volunteer in my daughter’s classroom.

May things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by corner of the internet.  I’m so proud of all the kids and excited to make the Builders’ Board   Have a creative day!

 

Blogging on a phone!

Blogging on a phone!

I say kudos to those of you who can blog by your phones. I’m trying to do this on my phone so that my blog doesn’t go without a post this week. Starbucks makes a great stop to do this! On Sunday night we had a horrible storm, lots of thunder and lightning, and that left us without any phone, internet, or cable TV. It’s been a quiet few days which is kind of nice. I don’t think you realize how much noise comes from all of these services.

Then the quiet days I’ve been working on a little bit of Bible journaling and editing a workshop for Studio Sue. In between my volunteering and all of my mom duties.

It’s been a nice time of reflection. We have Sarah Grace’s 10th birthday party this weekend. It’s really hard to believe we’re in double digits now. I look at her and realize just how fast she’s growing up.

And then I’m off to get ready for a Memories Made Here crop the following weekend. Can’t wait to see everyone in York, PA!

Maybe doing this on my phone isn’t do bad. I’ll have to figure pout how to watermark my pictures this way.

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!!

What a day, April 1!  Seriously.  Happy Easter, everyone. He has risen!  It’s also April’s Fool Day.  And if that’s not enough to celebrate on one day,  Jeff and I celebrate 18 years of marriage today.  This also coincides with 18 years with CTMH.  Poor Jeff has never know life without CTMH since we were married.  This is the perfect to celebrate many important things: Jesus, fun, my best friend, family, CTMH which provides an outlet for my passion to create and all the marvelous friends which come from this love.  Very rarely will this occur on the same day.

The 1st of April also means changes in CTMH’s specials.  Let’s take a look!
