Clip Artistry

I snuck in a little project while I really should've been working on my "OPAQ!"

The September issue of Martha Stewart Living had a great idea for clipboards in place of a bulletin board. I purchased 8 letter-size clipboards from Staples for about $11.00 and then decoupaged decorative paper (scrapbook paper from Michaels) onto the clipboards. I hung them in my office at school and I think it's a "good thing!"

First Days of School

The first day of school...What a wonderful day in the life of a child! (Kelli 1981--kindergarten)
(Danny-1988--first grade)

"The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation."

A Visit to Carmel by the Sea

"I see trees of green, red roses too.

I see them bloom for me and you.

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world ..."

Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world!

Whining or Shining?

It's August 1st and almost time to return to work after a wonderful summer filled to the brim with family! So...speaking of work...

It seems that there are two attitudes (or choices)...WHINING or SHINING:

1. WHINING: Ted and I were listening to someone complaining about work and talking about only putting in the minimum effort required. What unpleasant conversation! Upon self-examination, I must admit guilt to whining about my job too.

2. SHINING: Ted reminded me that we are to "work as to the Lord." Col. 3:23-24

I loved this article from Crown Ministries:

I'm choosing to shine.


Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.
--Marcus Annaus Seneca
