About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Stamp Something or in this case Don't Stamp Something

The challenge over at Stamp Something is to create something without stamping. UMM-Okay! Today was Reid's Pre-K teacher's birthday. She has had a rough time lately so I wanted to give her something that would make her smile. I made a paper flower and I attached a picture of her and Reid at Purim last year. If you would like to read a tutorial on how to make these go to Angie's website. Once you are there go to her side bar and click on tutorials. She did a great tutorial a while ago that I still refer to. For my flower I used 4 by 4 squares to make it a little bigger.
Thanks to all of you who have weighed in (get it) about losing weight. I am on the second day of my new life. I have decided for now to try it on my own by adding more fiber to my diet, cutting out processed foods and eventually (when I get my new workout dvds in the mail) exercising. I am also trying to close my kitchen after dinner, last night I had a cup of tea instead of a snack and I was okay with that. I will keep you posted.

This came out adorable! Good for you on what you are doing for the weight loss. I cut back on my soda...and I started eating the 100 calorie snacks.
