Mother's Day

You know, the only thing I don't like about making cards for Operation Write Home (and I do mean *only*) is that by the time the holidays roll around, I am tired of making cards for them.  I have yet to get organized enough to make my family cards at the time I'm making them for OWH.  So, I finished making Mother's Day cards almost two months ago.  Now I need to make the ones for my mom, grandmother, and great aunt.  Tonight.  Mom picked out her stamp, so I at least have that much of the design decided.  I need to make three totally different cards because they'll all open the cards together and it's more fun when they're different. 

I also need to make a couple of simple scrapbook pages tonight for my homeroom's Character Counts Coach.  The kids wrote him letters and I always put them into an 8x8 album for him at the end of the year with a class photo.  I need a page for the photo and a title page.  Which means I need to take a class photo tomorrow and print it this weekend.  Hmm...too bad I already know at least one kid will be absent.  

Off to be crafty!  And write lesson plans!  And get things ready for the weekend!
