A CASE of Theft!

Yep, I'm a complete thief and I'll own up to it! This card is the only one I've made this week and it's a complete case of a set that Debbie Olson made. Her blog is Thinking Inking! She is a huge talent! Debbie posted a full set of cards in May on her blog AND for The Classroom at Ellen Hutson. Of course, I can't make a bow like she can! LOL! I'm having withdrawal from no time (and little mojo) to color!
Why does life have to do so much with two things I dislike! What are they?
CHANGE AND CLEANING!
I'm packing up my whole classroom to move to two half classrooms in two school buildings! (Remember last year my job changed!) Now I'll be the Resource and Consultant teacher in two of our elementary buildings and because we're tight on space sharing a room in each of those buildings. So I'm really throwing a lot of stuff away, a pile for each of the schools I'll be working in and another pile of stuff too good to throw away! I'll be working two days past the end of school and then who knows how much time in August to unpack. But then, I come home to a house that I have not even started spring cleaning on! CHANGE AND CLEANING, UGH!

Thanks for listening to me whine a bit! I'm grateful that my followers list is growing and I'm approaching 200,000 visits! Yeah!!! I'm gathering some good giveaway stuff so I hope you'll stick around while I deal with the above and get back to coloring!
I will have a Christmas card tomorrow for the Magnolia-licious Christmas All Year Long monthly blog hop (the 25th).
So thanks for hanging in there with me! I'll see you tomorrow!
Hope you have a great day!
Cheryl

Hello Cheryl, love your card! It is so stylish and delicate. I've been in change & cleaning lately, and I'm happy to read I am not the only one with these feelings towards these tasks, and delays, etc. Let's be patient.
À demain, with the Christmas Card blog hop.
Hugs.
Danielle.

Hi Cheryl, I follow your blog and love your work, but rarely comment. I just had to today after reading your comment about changing classrooms. I recently retired from teaching in Alabama, and I had to change rooms more than I'd like to remember! The last time I moved, it was from one school building into another a couple of miles away. I taught a computer class, and I moved ALL of the computers myself because I didn't trust the movers to move them safely! I can relate to your situation! People who do not teach really have no idea what dedicated teachers do every day, after school, and during the summer, for our students. God Bless you for hanging in there for over 30 years, especially with the added challenge you have with special needs students. My hat is off to you, and I will keep you in my prayers.

I feel for you, Cheryl! This is the first year in 3 that I WON'T be moving! I'm so grateful for that! So being a thief at this time is A.O.K. with me! And your bow is lovely!

I just read Donna's comment...thanks for the nice comments about teachers! Moving computers from one building to another yourself is true dedication on your part!
