Welcome! After almost three years of reading other people’s blogs, I have finally decided to join the masses. Motivated (and helped) by my wonderful sister-in-law, I am ready to share all of the DIY creations and projects that I have been doing to keep busy “in the meantime.”
By “in the meantime,” I am referring to my day job as an elementary school teacher. For almost 6 years I have been teaching in other people’s classrooms in a supply teacher role, or as a long term replacement for a teacher on maternity leave. I remain hopeful that this will be the year that I finally get some type of contract, but the job prospects for permanent teaching positions in my city are slim.
Supply teaching is unpredictable and there are weeks where I teach only one day, or all five. I am a procrastinator by nature, so when faced with an unplanned day off I like to spend my time crafting, trolling Google Reader and Pinterest for ideas and searching for bargains in unexpected places. Only when I run out of inspiration do I turn to cleaning!
In November I received the holy grail of crafting tools for my birthday – a Silhouette Cameo. I love it! I am still learning the ins and outs of this tool but it has shown itself to be useful in many unexpected ways. You can look forward to many Silhouette project posts in the future including some to tuck away for Valentine’s Day next year since I was a little slow to dip my big toe in the blogging ocean.
So . . . stay tuned and thank you for joining me on my blogging adventure! There are many parts of my blog that still need to be set up, but I just can’t wait any longer! I look forward to seeing where this journey takes me.
Thanks for reading!
