Thanks Dragon

Happy Friday Everyone,

Only been back at school for school for two days and what a week. We had our telescope dedication yesterday and now we are getting a stereo microscope donated too. I have absolutely NO idea what it is (yet), BUT I am happy that our STEM Lab is going to be stepping up in the science world. I am also going to work on a wish list for another grant...yay for BIG companies that like to support Title I schools.  I'll be exploring options this weekend!

Today I am sharing a card that my daughter and I worked on collaboratively. I created the background using a sketch from Mojo Monday. Yes, the sketches are back at Poetic Artistry! I selected the stamped sentiment and image from MFT, but my daughter did the stamping, heat embossing (she likes to do that to prevent bleeding), and coloring.

Here is the most recent Mojo Monday sketch.

The stamped sentiment is from MFT ~ Thanks So Very Much. I really do love this set because of the over-sized font. I just checked in the store and it looks like they don't carry it any more. Bummer!
Other Challenges:

Lots planned this weekend...I need to write some science lesson plans for the STEM lab, grade some Math Winter Break packets for 3rd and 5th grade, going to Mr. Phil's observatory on Saturday night (hoping for clear skies), create and review a couple math assessments for fractions, and I can't forget...I need to make some crafty projects! I am thinking alcohol lift ink, treat boxes, "good job" post cards, water color backgrounds, oxide inks. So many ideas but I am not sure if there is enough time for EVERYTHING!

No time like now, so I better get started on the long list.
Stay Creative,


  1. This stamp set is one of my all time favorites from MFT! Your card is adorable!!

  2. This is really great!! I love it. Kelsey did a great job on the heat embossing the dragon is adorable. Sounds like a good year planned I hope for the best outcome for you with the grant.
