Some Notes To Some Folks and Classroom Posters

It's a cloudy, rainy, Monday here in Massachusetts. And, as it would seem, it is likely going to be a cloudy, rainy WEEK here in Massachusetts. Hmmm...I like the sun. Just say'n.

BUT...I did get some crafting done over the weekend. The problem is that I worked on my World Card Making Day stuff, which I posted on Saturday...and then I worked on a doll, which is not yet finished, and then I worked on my Skipping Stones DT stuff, which I can't post until tomorrow. Hmmmm...lots of fun stuff, none ready to post today...That means, FUN STUFF TODAY!!!!! (Well, that's all fun stuff, too. Actually, everything I post is fun if you ask me, sooooo.....hmmmm...yeah, well, anyway...moving on.)

Dear Dairy Queen,

Why do you make me hug your food? No. For reals, here, people. You put the combo meals in those convenient little boxes and then slide two boxes into a paper bag for take out. All well in good, in theory, however, because I can't carry the bag upright without all of the food sliding to the end of the boxes and getting all mixed up and squooshed and such, I have to essentially 'hug' the bag to keep it in it's right and proper position. Is this a marketing ploy? 'Cause it's a pretty funny one if it is. Just say'n.

Dear Buffy,

Thank you for making a cool, cloudy weekend more bearable. Oh, and tell Hulu thanks for having your entire series available. Just say'n.

Dear Monday,

We are not friends. Just say'n.

Dear Mary Engelbreit Planner,

Thank you for making me smile with your adorableness. The bird cage on this week's page is my favorite. Just say'n.

Dear Hubbums,

Thank you for being interested in my hobbies and supporting me and even asking me to make stuff for your classroom. Thank you for going on those lovely trips to Michael's that you *love* so much and for paying separately so I can use coupons to the max. You rock. Just say'n.

AND....for those wondering what I have made for his classroom, well, I have those to show you today. They aren't super fancy, but they work well for a middle school Social Studies room. He has them get news stories each day and so he wanted simple definition posters to put on each of the four computers they use to get the news. Here they are!

Local News Poster


State news Poster


National News Poster


International News Poster


Aren't they fun? I mean, they aren't like the most glorious scrapbook pages ever or anything, but for their purpose I think they are perfect! AND...what is better, is that the lesson is working and kids are reading the news and sharing it!

I hope you have an awesome Monday!

  18. I love that your husband will go to Michaels with you! What a guy! The posters are adorable!!!!

    I sympathize with your feelings on the rain. It was like a monsoon in eastern MA Friday when I was supposed to ride up to VT for the day (VT was forecasted to be monsoon-like as well). We did get to go Sunday though with was gorgeous!
