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!
