Stampin' Up! Indescribable Gift

Easter... :) It's my favorite holiday and I've decided to use my stamps and paper during March. Oh, and to actually mail out the cards! I have been awful at mailing anything this year, so I hope to change that. I used the gorgeous Indescribable Gift set from Stampin' Up! with my Copics. I love this set so much!!  I don't love my pink Copics, but I like to challenge myself to use them every now and then.

She cracks me up sometimes. :) She had two awesome days at school to end the week last week. We decided to add in something new, some mixed martial arts. They are very serious about respect, so I think it will be good for her. She seems to like it when she's not off to the side for not listening or being respectful. lol

Easter Chicks

Hi all! Just stopping in for a quick share before I head out in this rainy weather get my girl. Today was their 100th day of school, so we'll see how it went. I think they did some things they don't normally do and that doesn't always go over well. We do have our ARD meeting set up for the second week in March to see how her special education evaluation went. Progress...slowly.

Anyway, I pulled out all my Easter stamps and papers this week to try and get myself in a creative mood. I did manage to make this card, so that's good. I need to add some additional lighting to my room though because it's hard to color in there. Weird shadows going on. I guess I'll be shopping later. :)  I need some Copic refills anyway, so maybe I can find them at the same place online. Fingers crossed.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

FMS 324 Teacher Valentine

Happy Valentine's Day! or Ash Wednesday. Or both. :) I managed to stamp something this week for Laila's teacher. I hope she liked it. I used the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. It's a fun one! I am not sure if teachers get sick of apples or why we even associate teachers with apples. I think I need to be on the lookout for non-apple teacher sets. lol This set is from Simon Says Stamp.

My house and stamp room are a mess, so I need to work on cleaning this week. It's been one of those weeks where there seems to be some errand that must be done every day and takes way too long. WAY TOO LONG. I was hoping to go to IKEA for some stuff tomorrow, but I might put it off until Friday and just clean. 

This is what I get when I ask to take her picture. Stinker! She had a rough morning at school, but a good afternoon. She's back at her regular class, but the behavior program failed to send someone with her to help her transition back.  They are supposed to be fixing that and if someone isn't there by Friday I guess the not nice momma is going to school. I hate having to do that, but things are reverting back to before the program. What's the point of her going if you just let it go and don't support her? Ugh. She does have a person with her in class now, but not someone that's trained or even knows her really. So not helpful right now. So send good thoughts that it gets cleared up so that I don't have to go yell.

SSSCK Feb 2018

Happy Monday. Did you survive the big game? Have to call in "sick" today? lol We had a nice time watching the game and eating snacks. I'm still battling my lovely sinus infection, so Jason did most of the cooking. He pretty much did most of everything over the weekend. I am hoping to feel better soon, but I'm back to a headache again today. I may have to call the doctor soon to make sure I don't need to do something else to kick this. I did work on a card over the weekend and finally finished that. It's using the newest card kit from Simon Says Stamp. It seemed to take forever for mine to get here. It took a lot of postal detours!  :) I wanted to enter in it their Wednesday challenge since it is anything goes. 

My pretty girl. :)  She is hopefully finishing up her last week at the behavior program this week. They will have someone with her for a while to transition her back to her class when she goes. We finally got her testing results for the gifted and talented program and she scored high enough to qualify. They'll start those services next month.  I guess that makes her an official twice exceptional kiddo and that sure explains a lot. I don't think our school district has anything special for 2E kids though. 

I'm off to have a coffee and see if I can work on a little cleaning. It will be slow going, but I want to at least get my bathrooms cleaned today. 

Have a wonderful week!
