Thanks From a 4-H Gal

I have been visiting so many crafty friends during the past couple of days that I am overly impressed with all the creativity. It amazes me how much talent and variety there is. Can't wait to see more!

I am back from my friend's house. We planned two more weeks of Physical Science (static electricity, circuits, and insulators/conductors) and she already wants to get together again to plan the next unit. Phew! I told her I needed a break, so I could go craft. Of course, she understood ESPECIALLY since she liked her classroom door sign. She said I should be selling them, but I think I am going to make another one for a different teacher friend instead. I'd rather show them how much I appreciate them. : )

I have recently become friends with a 4-H gal who raised a pig for the fair and she asked to make her a Thank You card. I told her "Sure!"
I sent her this picture after I made the card and she asked for 5 total. Yeah! My husband told me he wanted one for a teacher at his school becuase her last name is Swineheart. He said, "You get it? Swine like a pig?" Okay, I will make him one too as long as I don't get any more of his funny jokes. : )

Did you see Carri's Birthday Celebration is coming in February?
I know it is early, BUT why not let the party begin now. : )  
Stop by to say "Hi!" to that BusyBee. She always has neat projects, giveaways, and design team information.

Off to make another "Thank You" card. This request... it has to be bright and full of bling. Ooooh, how I love to make cards!
