And not a moment too soon! I actually managed to finish all the grading about 3 hours ago, which must be some sort of record for me. But finally! It's done! I have a whole month of blissful free days ahead of me! No more slightly neurotic, occasionally forgetful, but still wonderful students! They're all off relaxing (I hope...) YAY!!!!
Of course, for the next week, I'll be frantically making Christmas gifts (starting with the cards I need to go finish up here shortly. I still have 100 passes through the Sizzix to go. Joy....) I have ornaments to make, jewelry to string, wreaths to design, and a couple of gift cards to buy (so of course, I'm going to have to make holders for those!)
I also have myriad ideas floating around in my head of things I want to try... Thankfully I've got my art journal and while I can't sketch to save my life, I'm pretty good at writing descriptions... lol! I really want to work on this bracelet idea I have using weaving and earring forms... we'll see how it works out...
Right now, I'm either off to sleepy-time land, or off to finish the die-cutting... not sure which. Either way, stay tuned for pics of projects coming, since I'm out of school and have some time to play again!
