apple jar_apieceofheartblog

I have two projects for you today.  School will be back in session here on September 7th and I always look forward to seeing all the kids after a summer of empty halls and a break from interuption.  To welcome the students back I decided to make a special jar to hold some pencils.  It never fails (especially during the 1st week of school) that students will come to the office looking for a pencil so I’m going to be ready with my jar of pencils and some extra special encouragement.

I work in an inner city high school  as the Accounts Administrator where I deal with a lot of high-risk students, typically from very dysfuntional homes. These kids are near and dear to my heart and I am privileged to interact with them on a daily basis, especially those with behavioral problems as I often see the same kids day after day, and in a lot of cases, several times a day. I try my hardest to make connections with each and every one of them. It amazes my co-workers that in a school of just over 1100 kids, I could probably tell you 95% of their names. It's a standing joke that when a Principal comes around with a picture of a student on their phone wanting to know if anyone knows who it might be, the first thing they say is "go ask Sharon, she'll know", lol.  That’s why I wanted to add an extra something special to make them feel good and show them that I care.  I feel like my workplace is my own little mission field and it’s a blessing to have the opportunity to instill a little positivity into a teenager’s life because they probably do not get a lot of that at home.  Here is a close up of the tags on the pencils. They say “You’re A Star”, “Make No Mistake, You’re Awesome!”, and “I think you’re absolutely “uh-mason” (a little hard to see it but that’s a mason jar).pencils_closeup_apieceofheartblog

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My second project is a card.  This year I’ve decided to try something new. Every month I’m going to pick a student who has shown that they are making an effort to do their best, whether that be by having good attendance, achieving good marks, or by demonstrating an act of kindness to another student, and I will award them with a gift card tucked into a special card.  This card will be for September’s “student of the month”.  I’m excited to see the look on their face when they realize that it’s not always a bad thing to be called down to the office, lol.

This past weekend one of our students was gunned down and fatally shot. The police are still investigating but my theory is that it was most likely a gang related incident.  I’m hoping that my new project might make some kind of difference and go a little way toward preventing hatred and violence on the streets.

The Lazy Days of Summer…

 

Happy

Saturday

and Welcome

 to...

The Lazy Days of Summer Blog Hop!

If you have just stopped by to visit with me, thank you and welcome.  Please make sure to start at the beginning of the hop with our Hostess, Robin Lane from Create-A-Latte, just to be sure you do not miss any of the wonderful projects that are included in this hop!  So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

The theme for this hop is Summer …

One of the things I think about when I hear the word Summer is biting into a big, juicy piece of watermelon. So yummy! I decided to go clean and simple with my card to help me ease back into the swing of things.  I even managed to dress up the inside a little. I tried to let it go but the perfectionist in me cannot do it.  When I uploaded the pictures of my card to my blog I realized that I spelled the word “melon” wrong.  Grrrrrrr.  I hope you can look past my error and enjoy what I made anyhow.

 

Thanks A Mellon_apieceofheartblog

ConGRADulations!!

It’s been over a couple of months since school let out for the summer and I’m so very proud to say that my oldest daughter graduated from her College program after 3 years of hard work, perseverance, and much determination!  You all know the struggles she’s had this past year and a half  with her illness (and if you don’t, click on the label in the Blog Archives to the right and select “anorexia” to read a bit about her story) and I’m so proud she persevered despite that obstacle and graduated with … wait for it … High Honors & a 3.97 grade point average (highest one can get is a 4).  I don’t know where she gets her smarts from but it certainly is not me, lol. 

KaylasGrad_apieceofheartblog

 

I made this card to celebrate the occasion and thought it turned out pretty cute considering how little time I’ve spent in the craft room lately.

Speaking of little time in the craft room, I have joined some blog hops to hopefully help me get my mojo back and get into the swing of things again.  The first one is at the beginning of August so keep an eye out for that!

 

 

 

 

I guess that’s about it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a freebie so make sure to check back to grab that.  Thanks so much for sticking around in my absence.  I know I have been saying this a lot this past year but I really do hope to get back to blogging more regularly again.  I’m really hoping those blog hops work for me!

Take care and enjoy the rest of this beautiful, sun-shiny day (well, at least it is here).

Monday Freebie (With Optional Digital Cut File)

Hi friends, I’m back again with another freebie sentiment just for you.  I know I haven’t been around a lot lately so, if you are still with me, I really appreciate your willingness to continue following me.  I’m trying so hard to get back to a regular routine but in dealing with my daughter’s eating disorder I have definitely lost a lot of my mojo.  But when it hits (and it does in small doses) I try to do something with it.  So, since Father’s Day is just around the corner, I thought I’d honor Dads with this cute little sentiment.

AND…

For a short time only, you can purchase the digital cut file for only 99 cents (can be used with any digital cutting machine that is compatible with SVG, PNG, JPG, or PDF formats).  Just respond in the comments if you are interested in the cut file and include your email address so that I can contact you with further details.

Wait! Is That A Robot I See?!

So, strangely enough I’m sitting here watching Dr. Who (and the dialects, lol) and I wanted to reply with a thank-you to those of you who commented on my Christmas card post.  Imagine my surprise when I noticed the “Please Prove You’re Not A Robot" prompt glaring me in the face.  Now, I dislike word verification as much as the next guy so I need you to know that it wasn’t me who added that little tidbit to my blog.  After some investigation I discovered that Google has indeed come up with this “great” little function to “help” weed out spam and there is no way for me to turn it off.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  >_<

If you are a member of blogger or have another Open ID account, I do believe you can bypass this captcha box and just go ahead publish your comment but I haven’t tested that theory yet.  I’ll update this post if I find out differently.

For now, I do apologize for this annoying addition that Google has so kindly provided us with.

UPDATE:  As long as you are using an Open ID or Google account you can just overlook the Robot Prompt and scroll down to publish your comment.

Christmas Makes 2014

I’ve been gone so long I’m not even sure you’re still with me but I thought I’d take a minute to pop in and share my Christmas cards with you this year so here’s hoping you’re still around to see them.  I am so thankful for my daughter’s help this year.  I pre-cut and colored all the pieces for each of my cards and she helped to assemble them all.  It made the process go so much faster.  The first cards I’m going to share are actually from a Close To My Heart card kit. 

 

ctmh

 

The kit made 5 each of 3 different styles of cards for a total of 15 cards altogether.  I’ve never purchased a CTMH kit before, but I must say, the stamps that came with the kit are incredible!  I’ve never used such wonderfully crisp clear stamps in all my life.

christmas card 3

 

And these are the cards that I pre-cut and assembled with my daughter. I made 5 cards each of the 5 different styles for a total of 25 cards.  The embellishments and images were all stamped, colored (if needed), and then cut with my Cameo Silhouette.

Checking In & A Freebie

Hi All,

I'm not sure if you are still with me or not but I thought I should check in and update you on what's been going on with me.  It's been a long, rough summer for the most part dealing with my daughter's health issues.  We are very thankful for the physical progression she's making but mentally there is still so much work to be done.  I've said this before and I'm saying it again .. this is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with.  Watching your child struggle so hard and wishing you could just fix everything but being helpless to do so is an unbelievably difficult thing to do.  I find myself emotionally drained and physically exhausted most days.  Right now, it's especially difficult as she finds it almost unbearable to deal with the physical changes her body is making.

With school starting in just a few short days, her anxiety is extremely high.  It doesn't help that she's going back to classes where she doesn't know anyone because her classmates all graduated in the Spring.  She was unable to graduate with her class because she had to drop a few courses to make finishing her year possible.  Now she is going back to pick those courses up so she can finish her program and get her degree.  I'm praying we can get her through this year so that is possible.  We could use your prayers in this matter as I know it's not going to be an easy road.

I'm sorry that I've not been more faithful in posting my freebies and cards but, to be quite honest, I have lost my mojo and it's been weeks since I've visited my craft dungeon to make anything.  I do have some digital papers and embellishments that I created in the past and I may choose to share some of those with you from time to time.  Hopefully this will suffice and help to keep you around as I would hate to lose any followers.

Here's a card I made a while ago but forgot to share.



And here is a 12-inch x 12-inch digital paper that I created a few months ago.  Just click on the paper to enlarge it to full size and then right-click on it to save it to your computer.  Enjoy :-)

Share With Me Please

I have opened a new account with Mr. Linky.  This allows you to add a text link to the Share With Me Please page when you use one of my FREE sentiments on a card/project/layout you have made.  I decided to go with Mr. Linky because it will allow me to keep the linky closing date open-ended (In Linkz would only allow a 30 day period  for each link-up with the free account which meant I would have to create a new link-up every month).

I have converted all the links from the old link-up page to this new format.  I hope you will consider using this feature so that I can see what beautiful things you are making with my digital sentiment creations.

Keep Calm…

Keep Calm Anaheim Ducks Tumber-2

 

 

 

 

My immediate boss at work is an Anaheim Ducks fan.  I have had this idea for a long time to create a tumbler for her and with the school year coming to a close, I decided now was a good time to give it her.   I wasn’t sure what to put on it but then I decided on going with the “keep calm” phrase replacing “carry” with “duck”.  She absolutely loved it!

That’s it for today.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :-)

InLinkz & Share With Me

Hi friends, it appears that InLinkz has decided to now charge for their service and my “trial period” has ended.  This means the InLinkz link to add your card on the Share With Me page no longer works :-(

I am not willing to pay for the service so, for now, please add any links to cards you’ve made using one of my sentiments to the comments area on that page (see Share With Me link on the navigation bar above) and I will be sure to visit your page to view it and comment.

If anyone knows of another free service similar to InLinkz, please let me know so I can take a look.

Masculine Get Well Card

Spent some time down in my craft dungeon today.  I got the idea for this card the other day when someone was asking about ideas for a masculine card for a golfer who was sick. The juices started flowing and once I formed the card in my mind, I could hardly wait for the weekend to get here so that I could put it together.  I’m loving the play on words that I came up with..

 

Feeling Under Par Masculine_apieceofheartbog

 

I found the golf bag on google images and added some Band-Aids to the front of it.  I colored it with my copics and then popped it up on the card front.  The inside of the card is also an image found on google images and colored with copics.  Although you can’t see it very well in the photo, the golf ball was covered with some glossy accents to give it a shine.

 

Feeling Under Par Masculine 2_apieceofheartbog

 

That’s it for now.  Enjoy your weekend!

Father’s Day

I love my Dad!  He tells the silliest jokes but they make me laugh.  He’s generous, gracious, considerate, sensitive, kind, and thoughtful.  He’s just a really great guy and he makes me smile.  I think my girls would agree that he’s the best Papa ever!

I made this card with love just for him.  It was made using digital papers and I created them all.  Also used was my newest digital freebie sentiment offered here.  I added some buttons and a ribbon to finish it off.

 

Fathers Day_2014_apieceofheartblog

 

Here is a peek at the verse I created for the inside …

 

Fathers Day-1_2014_apieceofheartblog

 

I certainly can’t forget about my husband, the father of my children.   He’s pretty awesome, too.  I don’t think he ever expected that he would end up with two girls given that his family is all boys.  But he’s a great dad and he loves his girls to pieces.  Here is the card I made for him.

The Friday Freebie…

Hi, all.  I’m here with a freebie for you.  But first, some news.  If you aren’t interested you can go ahead and scroll down to the bottom of this post to find the download links.

Some of you may know that there may be some changes in my job situation soon.  I work for my local School Board and at the end of this month 3 schools will be closing.  This is only the beginning.  Over the course of the next few years, there will likely be a total of upwards to 10 or more schools that will be closing in my city, in part due to low enrollment but also because “they” say that the cost of repair is greater than the cost of building a new school.  Only 1 new school is being built to replace the 3 that are closing this year.  That means that there will be some job shifting and bumping happening.  I will still have a job when this is all said and done ... I’m just not sure at which school as I'm not certain whether I'm a jeopardy of being bumped at the school I’m in. A little confusing, I know. Try living it.

Last week, I applied for 6 jobs that were posted on our Board site and out of the 6 I applied for, I received 3 interviews (not bad!). I don't want to leave the school I’m in now. I love it!   However, I felt that I needed to at least try to secure a job by moving up a grade level and have some control over where I end up.  Grade level (not as in a child’s grade) is what our seniority and pay scale are based on.

I didn't get any of the jobs I applied for although I did come close with 2 out of the 3 of them. I was told by both principals that my interview was fabulous, my personality and expertise really shone through but it came down to seniority. It will be interesting to see who was successful when they post the list next week. I have a feeling that one of those jobs was filled by someone who has only 20 days seniority on me but we'll see.

There are 5 girls in our school office and we make such a great team. We all get along so well together it will be sad to see any one of us leave but none of us are secure.  My school is scheduled to close in June 2016.  If we haven't already been split up by the bumping that is happening in this round, we will definitely be when we close.

I’m trying not to stress out because ultimately it is out of my hands but that’s easier said than done.  We were supposed to hear this week whether or not we’d be affected by the bumping but it keeps getting put off.  Think good thoughts for me .. and, if you are so inclined, add this to your list of prayers for me.  I know that I will end up where I’m meant to be so I try to focus on that as much as possible!

Ok, with that out of the way, it’s time to move on to the freebie.  With Father’s Day arriving soon, I choose to do this simple sentiment.  As always, click on the link(s) below the preview to download this freebie.  This sentiment comes with or without the frame which was also designed and created by me.  If you love it, leave me a comment.  I always love hearing from you!

For my project I decided to do a twisted easel card.  I wanted to make it crisp so I used the black & white colors.  I used my cuttlebug to emboss the various layers and I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the loopy frame around my picture.
