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.

2 Sketches 4 You

Today we have a delay before school so I have a quick moment to post this. I made this card for the challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You. You can see the sketch here. Tomorrow is my birthday and I always get pretty reflective around that time. I feel so extremely lucky to have such a great husband. He is as my grandmother would say truly a mensch (Yiddish word for basically a really good, caring guy) Yesterday I watched him play with the kids, shovel our driveway and quite a few neighbors and still have enough energy to build a snowman with Reid. So anyway, underneath all this dribble is this maybe I haven't done everything I wanted to do in my soon to be 38 years but I have (in my opinion) a charmed life. :) Okay enough sap. Thanks for letting me ramble.
