Sunflowers in February

Planted a few of these babies to see how they'd do at this time of year and have had great results. Think I'll add more!

Ya' Gotta Be Quick

Once or twice during our "winter season" it gets cold enough to snow in our local Topa Topa mountains. I grab the camera and click away because this scene only happens briefly...lasts only a day or two...before it melts and you can't see the ocean and the snow at the same time. Crazy California weather!

Happy Valentine's Day!

With the help of netflixorigami.com I am wishing you a happy day of hearts and love and all that gooshy stuff. Only if it works for you, of course. As my first graders said (of Cupid)...."He's really only a baby in diapers with an arrow anyway."

Valentine Fun

There's nothing quite like Valentine's Day in first grade...
from wonderful food...


to art projects...

to drawing...


to sitting down with all your best friends and opening those wonderful cards...


It really doesn't get any better. I told them and they agreed that this was most likely the best day of their whole lives...all six years of it.

Got these very cool things to use in journaling from an exchange in my online class.




Thanks again, Jan!

Cut, Snip, and Paste

I felt the old urge to cut, snip and paste over the weekend and looked to the scrap basket for inspiration...



Decided to do greeting cards because they are small and fun to do and always come out different from one another...



Sometimes it just feels good to get in there and do something mindless...
