Sharing Jaan’s Creativity for Leader Appreciation

Sharing Jaan’s Creativity for Leader Appreciation

My children attend Awana at our church, and my husband and I work with the Awana program.  Last evening was Leader Appreciation Night and I wanted to share what my my middle son, Jaan, made for his leaders.

Jaan asked me to show him where the t-shirt dies were before I went to take my Sunday afternoon nap yesterday.  He was planning to make a little something for his leaders.  I showed him the dies and then went to lie down.  Apparently he got pretty busy while I was sleeping!  When I came back down, he showed me this.

In Awana they wear uniform shirts and this looks like the shirt for his class!  He made one of these for each of the leaders in his class and then wrote a little message on the back.  Supper cute!

He told me he made something for me as well, but didn’t want to show it to me at that time.

I work the check-in desk at Awana,   On a normal night I’m asking them if they have certain items and then they get “Awana Bucks” for having the things they need.  At different times throughout the year, the kids are given the opportunity to use their Awana Bucks to purchase items from the “store.”

When Jaan came to check in, he laid this on the table.

This is his version of 5 Awana Bucks!  He did such a good job and had me laughing – I love it!  This is about the size of a business card and he wrote a nice little message on the back.  (The real thing does have a dog in the middle with it’s tongue hanging out, just in case you’re wondering.)

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the creativity from Jaan today!  I look forward to seeing several of you in classes tomorrow for the Stamp of the Month, Step It Up, and Lighthouse Decor classes!

Quick Trip North Spring 2017

Quick Trip North Spring 2017

I had plans to write blog posts this past week while we went up north . . . but I’m afraid being on vacation went to my head and I forgot all about my resolve.  My brain just clicked into vacation mode and now I find myself at home with no blog posts being written this past week.  Don’t you love vacation?!

I thought you might like to see a quick picture, we primarily spent our time with Andrew’s family in New York but we did sneak away to Vermont one morning.  This is a picture of a covered bridge we crossed over during our trip.  (We may have turned around and gone back just to make sure we crossed it and I was able to take pictures!)  As it turns out, Norman Rockwell’s house was at the end of that particular road, but we did not have time to stop and explore.

In stampin’ news, here is a simple card we made with the High Tide stamp set in the High Tide Stamp of the Month Class the other week.Continue reading

Upcoming 2017 Stamp of the Month Classes

Upcoming 2017 Stamp of the Month Classes

As you start pulling out your 2017 Calendar, you’re going to want to mark down these Stamp of the Month classes!

I have made some changes for the Stamp of the Month classes in January – March, I will see how things go, and reevaluate at the end of that time to see if I would like to continue with those changes.  What are they?  January – March you may choose to attend the Stamp of the Month class without including the stamp set (and any additional items like dies/Watercolor Pencils) in your class price.  Those choosing to include the stamp set/dies are getting a special deal since their class fee costs just a couple dollars (once you figure in the cost of the product and tax/shipping).

Let me know what you think of this change.  In the meantime, here are the upcoming Stamp of the Month classes!Continue reading
