I wanted to do something that Brady would always remember for his graduation.  Something that he could always look back on and chuckle about.  And here is what I came up with:

It only took me 3 1/2 hours to roll up all the dollar bills but it was worth it! I had to roll them up as tight as I could and then I tied each one of them with curling ribbon in his school colors.  In order to find out how many dollar bills were enclosed, he had a diploma like letter to read and the contents of it said:

Brady, we are so very proud of
 how much you have accomplished
 during these past 17 years. 
Here are just fifty ways to say

Cheery Christmas Cards

The Gingerbread Men are my favorite!
In total, I made close to 80 cards.

Christmas Ornaments

Yes, I know it's a little late to be posting Christmas creations from this past year, but this is the first chance I've actually gotten.  I made each one of my students one of the ornaments and I also made each one of our children one for the tree.  In total, I made 64 ornaments because I did sell quite a few to co-workers.  I cannot wait to make these again for our upcoming Christmas.  I'd love to do a Twilight theme and WVU Mountaineer set.  :o)

2012 Class T's

Well, finally I am posting! It's been an extremely busy school year and I have had my hands full.  I wasn't prepared for the amount of time it added to go from a class of 20 kids to 30! But we did it! After 9 long weeks, I finally got everyone's class t-shirt designed and finished.  The parents loved them and I thought they turned out pretty cute myself.  Hoping to post more pics soon! Have a great summer!
