I spend most of my morning reading kindergarten blogs and finding some really great ideas for this upcoming year. The teachers that created those sites are awesome! I have loved seeing what other people do and it makes me want to get moving on my room! I made a scavenger hunt for my kiddos and their parents on the ice cream social night and I created new labels for each of my different boxes of books (20 in all!) Then I managed to work out, clean, do laundry, get Bailey to the vet, and run some errands! Whew!
One of my projects today was to finish making some cards so here are the final products...
Congratulatory card and birthday card
Birthday card and congratulatory card
My personal favorite, the inside of the button flower card.
I really enjoyed the time I spent making these cards. It was late afternoon, it was nice and cool in the house, and my scrapbook room is pretty peaceful. Not to mention the amazing music Pandora was playing for me. Indulge me a moment and just sample a taste of the playlist that came up...
Hallelujah- Jeff Buckley
Dream a Little Dream of Me- The Mamas and The Papas
She's Got a Way- Billy Joel
American Pie- Don McLean
Peace Train- Cat Stevens
Our House- Crosby, Stills & Nash
Turn, Turn, Turn- The Birds
Pandora, I thank you for a perfect mix of music for the evening :)
The rest of the evening could be summed up by the next two pictures...
Dinner... wine, cheese, crackers, and grapes
My new favorite- laughing cow cheese - only 35 calories for each triangle :)
And something else that is a bit more than 35 calories... my beer bread!
It turned out really well! A little moist in the middle but I took it out a few minutes early so the sides wouldn't burn. It probably could have used a couple more minutes.
In Colby's words... "It was very good!"
Off to spend some time with my loves!
