Nope. I Didn't Lick the Paint off the Wall. It Wasn't Me.

The beauty of owning a new puppy. Yes the title is correct; she licked the paint off my wall. Gotta love a terrier.....

A Sign of the Times

Finished up TAKs tutoring this last week and my students retake the test this week. Discovered this sign in a co-worker's classroom, so I can't take credit for it. However, only a few more weeks until summer vacation, and I can hardly wait to craft up a storm.

Yo-yo Gift Tags

Yo-yo Gift Tags, originally uploaded by aaaandreaaaa.
I love yo-yos, and I made these gift tags last year for swapbot. The reason why I love yo-yos so much is that I get instant crafting satisfaction especially, if I'm short on time. Tutoring made me extremely tired this week, so no new projects. I spoke nonstop eight hours straight; the life of a Reading Specialist during this time year. At least I got some good rest this weekend, and I am ready to go again. I can't wait for summer vacation, so I have time to craft.

I sure do miss the Desert Botanical Garden. This photo was taken when I volunteered as a docent. I want to go back and visit the garden.

I love this yo-yo table runner. This is a project I completed last summer. I love how it turned it, and it made a great Christmas present for my friend Karen.
