Double the Pleasure, Double the Fun!

I have a really good excuse for not blogging the past few weeks...We are expecting in April! And it's twins! We just shared the news with our families and friends this weekend. It's been so hard to keep it a secret, especially since we found out there were 2 little beans!

Tomorrow I will be sharing the news with my coworkers and wanted to do it in a creative way, so I bought a bunch of little packs of DoubleMint Gum and attached a little poem to it. I'm planning to just leave it in the staff work room in the morning and listen for the shrieks and squeals from my classroom that's just across the hall and down one room. (I work with some very excitable people!)

So here's the little basket all ready to go.

And here's a close up of the poem.

I hope to be back to my perky, crafty, blogging self soon, but I have a feeling that it might be a couple more weeks before I get my energy back. Keep an eye out though, because this is post number 99, meaning the next post is my 100th post and I will have a giveaway!

Have a great week!

Labor Day Weekend

What a weekend it's been! My husband was in his cousin's wedding on Saturday - which meant we had rehearsal on Friday evening, a full day Saturday, and breakfast and gift opening yesterday morning. Then last night - after I took a nap - we had some friends over for supper. They are missionaries at a school in Africa and have been gone for the past 4 years. It was fun to catch up with them and see how much their 5 children have grown!

Here's a picture of the family at the wedding reception...

Now onto a card...

I just love this card and the best part is it was so incredibly easy to put together! Stamped the background, added some ribbon, and adhered a Color Couture Embellishment.

Hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend! We are spending today recovering and then heading to a cook out at some friend's house before heading back to work tomorrow. And speaking of work, tomorrow is Andrew's first day at his new job!! Yeah!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my ramblings!

Back to School

Yesterday was the first day of school. It went great, but I was so exhausted by the end of the day - I forget every year how long it takes me to adjust to being back with students all day!

Anyway, I made a these cards - one for the other Kindergarten Teacher and one for the Aide in my room.
I'm still trying to make it to 100 posts...this is 97. Not sure when I'll get there now, but if you still want a CHA set keep your eyes peeled for my giveaway when I finally get to 100!

Have a great day!
