Not sure I'm really "back" yet; BUT

I did need to finish this little project!

I was so inspired by Laurie's creation HERE, and wanted to make something extremely similar for our young man's teacher - she's really a great teacher!

She loves K-State, so it's purple all the way for her - too bad for the kids in her class that are not K-State fans - LOL!

A super quick post-it note holder and gift sack filled with 3 colorful pencils. I figure she can hand the pencils out in class as a reward to students and save the post-it notepad for herself!

The images are from Our Craft Lounge, the dies are all from Shop Verve. Totally CAS; hope she likes it!

Take care; I'm hoping I begin to ease my way back into my craft room very soon! I'm still on breathing treatments and have about 4-5 more days of antibiotics, then I really hope I've beaten this junk and we can move on to Spring and a much healthier household.

Another thing that makes it so difficult to recover is when your week looks like this:

Doctor's appointment after school for youngest daughter.
Pick up oldest daughter from soccer practice after work.

Oldest daughter has 2 soccer games beginning at 5 p.m.
Youngest daughter has volleyball practice and a clinic.

BIG day at work - major project due.
Staff meeting at lunch.
Appointment for our oldest daughter at 7 p.m. - that means drive home, pick her up and drive back to the City

Another BIG project due at work and a luncheon meeting off-site.
Oldest daughter has 2 soccer games beginning at 5 p.m.

Leave for volleyball regionals in Kansas City; return Sunday afternoon/evening.

Hmmm...is it any wonder I'm run down? LOL I wouldn't tradeour life for anything, but when you're trying to get well, all the running sure makes it tough.

Regardless, I'm so tickled you stopped by! Take care!!
