Maria’s Holiday Card

There are a LOT of teachers at preschool. Or it seems that way. There are main teachers and various helpers, and then there are teachers from the other rooms because some time the different classrooms are combined. Oi! And gifts for all those without understanding their roles are hard. So we have opted to do something for the classroom (Target gift card addressed to “Preschool 2″) and then have cards for each teacher. This is the card we made for each of the teachers (printed as a 4×6” photo).

Maria Holiday Card 2011


Recipe Collection

I am good at trying recipes. Good at documenting them and pretty good about documenting them on my blog, but have been looking for a way to get them printed. I hate writing them out on cards. I’d rather print them off so I can read them.  But then I end up with sheets of paper and printing them every time I make them. Plus I have a bunch of ones that I am finally admitting are not going to be made again (or ever)…

So now I am taking my favorites and converting them to cute printable 4×6 photo-sized cards.  I had them developed and stuck them in a little 4×6 pocket photo album. Perfect.

Here are a few…

Here’s the link to all the one’s I’ve finished. Feel free to borrow or share. I will be adding more out here too… not done with all my recipes…

I Fight. I Write.

So I have this pretty amazing friend. Mom of 2 young girls.  Self-Employed (Independent Contractor – meaning she has to find her own work every couple months).  Who found out she was pregnant with #3 in December, and then days later found out she had cancer.  Yeah, that sucks!

So while she was growing that little baby in her tummy and watching that cancer (praying that it doesn’t spread too fast), she started another project. It’s called “I Fight. I Write.”  and it is all about creating custom journals for other cancer patients. The idea is, the day they get a diagnosis, the nurses at these cancer clinics can give the patients a journal to go home and start documenting their journey.  Awesome, huh?!  Her goal 100 by the time she starts treatment. She’s got a ways to go, but is getting help.

The I Fight I Write Facebook page if you’re interested…  And if you want to help, I’d be happy to give you the specs on the journal covers. She got the actual books donated from Russell+Hazel along with some other materials, but still needs help getting covers made to go inside the books.

Here are the 2 sets of covers that I did this weekend:

Bonus with making these this weekend, was I got to play with my new Silhouette SD (a Mother’s Day gift to myself!)
