It's official!

Well folks, it is official.  As of today I have a kindergartener in my midst!  She was pretty happy to go off to school today, though I know she was nervous once she was around the other kiddos.  She wouldn't even say hi to one of her little BFF's because she was feeling so shy!  She will work it out though, I know.  I shed some tears but I am feeling better about it now and get to leave shortly to pick her up.  Here are some photos of my love on her first day.


Blueberry was pretty excited too!  She loves learning! ;)

So... Are you tired of hearing about how simultaneously sad and excited I am about my big girl and her transition to Kindergarten?  I don't blame you since this is a craft blog. :)  How's about I give you a little info about that cutie little sign I made to mark the first day.  One thing I like about this sign is that I can put it in a scrapbook page or something, it will be a nice add on.  It was pretty simple to make really, just a little DP, a fat popsicle stick, some dies and some apple stamps.   The black letters really pop and scream school all over.   I know the words on the stick look runny or smeared but that is just from curve in the vase...  The letters are from my favorite Quinn's ABC's from Lawn Fawn, the Apple from the Smarty Pants set from Paper Smooches.



Did you think I was done?!  As if I wouldn't enter it into some challenges since half of the ones out there are all about school right now!!!  First Lawnscaping's A few of my favorite things , second- CASology's #60 apple and third- Curtain Call's Back to School.   Maybe this cutie pants model of mine will get me some extra points in the challenges! ;)

So today's Question of the Day is- What was your favorite subject in school?  I know you all must have liked art!!! :)  If that is your answer what kind of art?  I liked art myself and enjoyed using colored pencils and watercolors, though I was no star.  I really enjoyed studying various religions in college, pretty fascinating what people believe in and how they come by it.  We are all so different and yet all people- pretty cool.  OK, your turn to answer the question.

Thanks for stopping by again!
