With the baking classes behind me,
and December knocking at my door,
I decided that it was time to take stock of the projects still on my To Do list.
The second grade auction project for Little e's class is so close to being done.
I have a full color, as it will be, proof to show the teacher,
and once she signs off on it, I have order forms made up
to send home with the students!
I'm so excited! The project has come together so well.
(I'll have a full post about the project later in the week.)
Book, check. Next on the list? A felt ornament class.
Friday (a teacher planning/no school day), I'm holding
a felt ornament making class in the morning.
We'll be making ornaments similar to the ones our family made last year.
And then, the following Friday, I'm having an art open house.
I'm laying out all of my mixed media/collage stuff,
and people are going to come and go through the day
throughout the day making cards, garlands, gift notes, and whatever else floats their boats.
This will be like the Valentine's Day event I did.
In between, I'm filling orders for my little shop,
and working on a commission for friend,
all with the idea that by December 5th
I will be done with my sew for pay,
and I'll be ready for my own gift making.
And, looking at the length of this post already,
I will keep my gift ideas for another day.
If I think really hard, I can almost remember
when I felt so slow and unproductive in the fall.
It seems like an awfully long time ago now.
And a cute kitten shot, just to make the post worthwhile.
