The kindness of strangers

3 or 4 weeks ago, one of my 8th grade students had to have major surgery on her spine. She was born with Spina Bifida, and has had health problems throughout her life. I put a note on the CKMB asking if people would like to purge their scrapbooking supplies to help her. The generosity of these women was overwhelming! I recieved so many wonderful papers, stickers, and embellishments, even adhesives! I can never thank you enough for all your kindness. I'm going to give her the goody box tomorrow. Her mom said she would be so excited. Here are a couple of pictures of some of the things she will have.

Thank you!

March 3rd already?

I'm behind. I totally skipped the whole month of February, even though I had really good intentions of updating this blog. It's just been really, really busy!

Right now we are knee deep in prom stuff. My classroom looks like a glitter factory! These prom companies are making a killing on the decorating...junk; several hundred dollars for styrofoam & cardboard! Oh well, we paid and are are moving on. Prom is the 17th, so I'll have some good pictures to post....I hope. My darling daughter has the pinkest dress I've ever seen! She's a junior, that's how I get roped into helping with prom decorations.

Duty calls, so I must answer, time to make some "Phantom of the Opera" decorations. Wanna help?
