Of course, a transition means teacher gifts for the ones we're leaving behind :-( I'm not fond of buying clutter that will just clog up their houses, and I often think about how teachers must dread the end of the year when they get a zillion apple/blackboard knick-knacks... so, I made them cards and baked cookies.
The cards are done with paper quilling, which I dabbled in a bit in high school and decided to take up again... because, say it with me now, I needed another craft to do. Not really, but I did it anyway. I'm enjoying it, and for some reason, I don't like to knit much in the evenings right now. This seems a nice option - I can do a couple of cards quickly in an evening. I'm hoping to do some for Christmas, but we all know how well I do with deadline crafting...
Time to check on those cultures... and drink some coffee... and think about my big boy all grown up!
