Wool Journal Covers and A Lil' Graduate!
My dear friend "Betty" gifted me a wonderful wool appliqued journal cover back in February. It is truly a keepsake. So I found that I had some little booklets tucked away in a cabinet and thought why not make some little covers for them. It was really quick since I used very simple little designs. Look what appeared out of the scrap basket.
I plan on putting some in our lil' booth and think they would make great gifts for someone special and are just the right size to tuck in your purse.
I also made some larger ones for two very special gals. Sloan has been going twice a week for 2 1/2 hours to a preschool. He has loved every minute of it. Miss Carolyn has been helping with preschool and kindergarten since my children were in grade school. You can really tell she enjoys the children.
Miss Teresa is a retired school teacher and loves to sing. The children run to her each morning they arrive and love to get a hug. She taught them so many songs. For the end of the year program they sang many of the songs that they had learned. It was so darling to watch those lil' ones.
They each received a certificate and cd of photos. I know he is going to miss going during the summer months but I'm sure we will fill those days with going to the park and swimming.
Today was a nice crisp, cool day that felt just like fall. Love those cool days and I know before long the dog days of summer will be here until then I'm just going to enjoy every minute of those cool breezes!
