School’s Out for Summer……!!!!

June 16, 2009

WHEW!!!  Can I say I’m relieved??  No more getting up early, no more 6 am calls asking if I’m available to substitute teach………

I got the teacher gifts done before the end of school- I made paper cake boxes filed with chocolates. My kids wanted the give gifts to not only their immediate teachers but about 10 others at school!  And wouldn’t this be great for any party or multiple gift need?  At Christmas, with a poinsettia-type flower on top- adorable.

I’m now on to other projects.   Today’s project was to make 10 dozen (yup- that’s what I said) rolls commissioned by someone at church.  Thank goodness hubby got the kids a Wii this weekend as a good grades reward (and this will be the ONLY time you will hear me say that- I’m not a video game person)- they played for hours while I baked for hours! [Although I will also say it’s addictive to make those Mii people- I’ll have to post a picture of what “I” look like]

Next up, a bit more work on the Tea I’m organizing at my church for next year- I’m SO EXCITED!  It’s a fundraising project for our ECW Outreach (we give $$ to many other groups) but it’s also a new fellowship idea.  The plan has been approved, people have volunteered for most of the committees, I have entertainment, and I decided the theme and favors already!  “May Day” is the theme- so it will be about flowers. (And the favor is the cake box from above- SHHH! Don’t tell anyone!)  But more about that later….

At home we are having our 2nd annual Midsummer’s Eve party this weekend.  I’m really praying for nice weather!!!  It was great last year, with the bon fire, and tiki torches, and candles and all (and the sangria!).

I’m also “booked” a few places this summer to speak about my 365 project, which is crazy cool.  A friend made a video for me, set to music, which has gotten rave reviews.  I’m even impressed by my own work when I see the video!!  If it ever gets posted to Youtube I’ll let you know.

It’s very late and I need some shut-eye -next time I’ll tell you about the country store auction I went to on Saturday. Man I wish I had more space for stuff and a wad of cash- bargains were to be had!

Shirts with original tags, STILL in the display case.
