Christmas Cheer

I have uploaded my Christmas Kit to my online store at http://www.ndisb.com  Click on me, Andy Designz.  Turned out yummy with 16 papers, 10 elements and a full alpha and numbers in individual pngs.

I just love the sugar plum colors in this kit.  It was fun to do and I think you will like it too.

Going to meet Kris and Jake at the China Star Buffet soon for dinner and then to their house to decorate their tree and do our annual ornament exchange.  This will be a lot of fun.  On our way home Kurt and Iwill drive around and look at the Christmas lights up in the city.  Little America Hotel always has a great display and the city decorates Wheeler Park which has many, big trees.  They are both wonderful displays to see.

I am finishing up my decorating inside, including the tree.  Kurt will get to the outside lights this weekend.

I have been doing a lot of substituting at Sinagua Middle School in my friend Carol’s classroom for one of her aides who had surgery.  I love Carol’s kid.  This class was the feeder class to my class at Coconino High School.  These are wonderful young people who have cognitive delay.  We used to call it mildly mentally retarded (MIMR).  The all try so hard to do well and are a joy to work with.

Make a good day!  ~Ann

Jessica Sprague CT Call

My favorite scrapbook teacher Jessica Sprague is having another call for her Creative Team.  Creative team members  use the designers’ products and showcase them in layouts  to give customers ideas of how these supplies can be used.  I entered the call last spring and didn’t get picked.  <sob> <sob> so am trying again.  You know that old saw,  ” if at first you don’t succeed…….”  Here are the pages that I entered into the call:

Wish me well this go around as this is something I really want to do and I think I would be good at it too.

Make a nice day!  ~Ann

Sparkling Autumn

I have made a page out of my part of the October collaboration kit for http://www.ndisb.com where I am one of the designers.  The kit will be exceptional.  I have seen many of the previews and it will be a mega kit.  It is a customer appreciation kit and is free with an $8.00 purchase.  It is called Sparkling Autumn and will be well worth your time to check it out.  It will be available on October 1st.  This page is of my hubby and his bodhran.

We have been have sensational weather here, what I like to call pre-fall.  Just a little nip in the air early and then gorgeous days and evenings.  We went to Williams,  AZ last Saturday night for a birthday social and sat on the patio well into the evening and it was wonderful.  I am busy designing a kit called,  Burning Foliage.  The papers are almost done and a few elements are finished as well.  Need to finish to get it in the store for the fall season.  I am not teaching at a regular assignment this year.  I had a job share for the last two years at South Beaver but that is one of the three schools that FUSD closed and my teaching partner and I had no re-hire rights as we were part time.  Since then nothing really has panned out for us.  I do have 5 days of subbing lined up for September (well one of the days is Friday Oct. 1st) so I will be keeping my hand in a little.  Hope all is well with all of you.  Here is the page of which I spoke:Make a nice day.
