After the 3rd week of school, I had to get all of the kids in the school tested in reading, and then there was a writing assessment we had to do. Of course, all of these assessments are hand scored, so...guess what else I've been up to?
School isn't all I've been doing lately. I have managed to get a little time in stamping. Thank goodness, otherwise I wouldn't be able to maintain my sanity. I started a monthly stamp club in September. We are still looking for a few more members if anyone in this area are interested. Another thing that took up a lot of my time was an annual Stampin' for a Cure event that I and several other local demonstrators sponsor each October. It is a fundraiser event for our local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We charge a fee for participants to come to one of two sessions, a.m. or p.m., to stamp. This year participants made 7 awesome projects. We also solicit donations from local business for snacks and beverages and silent auction items. We also do drawings for huge baskets filled with Stampin' Up! product. It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. This year, we raised over $6,000.00, but that wasn't even the final total. So I am sure we raised a whole lot more. There is a photo of the card I designed for the event at the bottom of this post along with a few other special photos.
I also became a Nonna for the second time in three months. Back in June, my oldest step-son and his girlfriend had a beautiful baby boy, Noah. And just recently, my youngest step-son had a baby girl, Madisyn. I will post photos at the end of this post.
