Can you imagine your world without books? I couldn't. I have 4 books on my shelf waiting to be read! As a kid, we always had books around. I became a Reading Teacher because I wanted kids to enjoy reading. I wanted to make it easier for them to love books.
Love this picture of a child with his own book.
This is one of the projects we made in my class this week. When you open the card, you see a box that holds hot chocolate. The foam is our new snow puff paint. You put it on the card and heat it. It puffs up to look like foam or snow. It was fun to hear the ladies squeal when the foam started to form!
This is the 3-D item we made, which is a purse that can contain cards and envelopes or anything for gift giving. This is card a bag in a box. It was much easier than it looks.
Sunday, our featured challenge was Diana. Here is her card that way my inspiration for my card.
I kept the stamp set the same and kept some of the elements the same. I like how it turned out. There's nothing like navy and silver.
Yesterday a friend came to dinner, then helped me with some of the card prep for class today. She was a huge help to me.
First she made her cards for class, then she helped me make some of one of the cards. I misjudged how long it would take to make the card in class. As it was, we finished 3 of the 4 projects for class.
So I owe each group of ladies, one extra project next class.
These ladies were just wonderful and understanding. I felt horrible but they reassured me that it was okay and they loved the projects. They would be worth the wait. Thank you God for such wonderful friends.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 7:1
You know, it seems that these days people believe that if you don't agree with them, you've judged them and hate them. When did it become not okay to disagree with people? This generation has really changed a lot of things in our lives, and it's not good at all.
I read that one of the Democratic candidates for President said, If he's elected, he will take away the tax-exempt status to all churches who don't believe in gay marriage. Wow, what happened to Freedom of religion? You know, The constitution of the United States, the document we established early on in our independence from England. This is scary to me that a minority can whip up a frenzy on issues that they hold dear. God is on His throne, and I'm so thankful He is.
Wow, what an anthem for believing in Christ! Check out this song and its powerful words. I need to put this to memory to help me fight during the tough times. Thank you Emily.
Blessing of the Day: I heard from Ben, he's been sick with the flu the last week. We'll see him tomorrow after he drops Zoey off at daycare. It's been a while since we've seen him. I'm so happy he checks in now and then so we know how he's doing. The other 2 kids don't do that.
Tim got some more things done on the bathroom.
Tim and I got to watch the Yankees go down to defeat tonight in the playoffs!
Thank you for stopping by to visit.
