This week has been a crazy one! It is chock full of holidays!  I’ve had to keep myself (and my daughter) super organized so we remember everything.   Although, not normally my best quality, organization that is, it has been going alright thanks to the (free in the mail) calander my mom brought over last month!  

Last week we started the prep work for THIS week… it started with making the Semi-homeade Valentine’s cards for my daughters class, about a hour and a floor covered with paper doile reminents later, they were finished!  
By Monday we were in full swing… the juice boxes and the Valentine’s cards had to be brought in to school for the upcoming party (and so we wouldn’t forget them), Tuesday came and it was Presidents Day and Mardi Gras…. and we are crazy about Mardi Gras!  We used to live in Texas and it’s a big holiday there, in New York not so much.  But that’s ok because we still celebrate with good food, music and King Cake!  Wednesday was Ash Wednesday, another holiday for us to talk about!   Thursday- today-Valentines and (early )President’s Day celebrations!!
Ahhh, the list doesn’t stop here, tomorrow is the 100th day of SCHOOL!! I’m not sure about others, but we had to come up with a collection of 100 (small) things.  The choices are endless but in reality, coins make your hands stink after counting 100 of them, crayons are the common option but also a boring one, they’re not allowed to bring in food items so macaroni was out, and we have a bunch of cotton balls but not quite enough… SO we used beads (and they sure are small but they fit in the ziploc!).   I had one hard time keeping them on the table to recount them and make sure there were 100!  The 100 Days collection needs to go in tomorrow and we should put it in the backpack tonight otherwise we’re apt to forget tomorrow! 

After that is there a break…maybe, temorarily, but probably not.  It’s a whirlwind but it’s all fun in the end!  I have no idea how I have time for my own artistic creations among this, but somehow I manage! Happy Week of Holidays my friends!!

      Hi Betsy, JoAnn LOVES the heart necklace!! The length of the chain is perfect and it is so lightweight, a feature that is really appreciated here in the hot desert! We love your work!
