It has been 7 months that I have not updated my blog on crafts. During the “off” time, I was very busy but I or my children had done quite a bit of different crafts, just had some much going on … laptop broke down (I have lost some of my pictures although I have back up some of them in an external drive), kids’ crazy school and activities schedules, visits of different siblings, left feet hurt, shoulder and arms hurt …. just did not able to sit down and write something. OK, I have decided to resume blogging and hopefully I can keep this blog up, at least once every week on blogging art and craft projects.
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week. In my children’s school, PTA asked parents from each classroom to help out on creating a Thank You notes album. The PTA parents sent out a secret packet to each kid with a note to the parents to help out the kid to write a thank you note to his/her teacher. After the notes have been turned in, one of the parents from each class would help to put the notes into an album. The album will be given to the teacher after the Teacher Appreciation lunch today. Unfortunately, some note cards were too big and the kids wrote from one side to another side of the cards. Trimming the cards might not work that well. Plus some classes only turned in only a few pieces. The idea of a lot of “thank you” did not work well. I used some color paper stocks and made an album to hold all the notes. My children were so excited to help out.
