A School Pic and a Card

Hi friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! I was at an all day crop yesterday so I didn't get a chance to blog. I made a few cards so I'll share those soon.

Here's a much promised picture of my Brady on his first day of school. It's the ONLY good one I got. This kid did not want to cooperate with me. What can do you do? I took a couple on his second day of school but I have yet to look at them.

Ok, so school isn't going so well. Check that. Drop off isn't going so well. School is going FINE. When I come to pick him up, he's all smiles and his teacher/teacher aids say that he does great. He just DOES NOT want to go to school or be left there. That drop off just overshadows all the good parts of the day where he plays, makes art, sings, has recess, and eats a snack. I have no idea why that part is so hard for him but we are working very hard on trying to make it better. We are got him The Kissing Hand book and we've been reading it everyday. We are going to let him take a lovey to school with him to keep in his cubbie and I will make him a little photo album for his backpack. If anyone has other suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment or email me! Any help would be great!

Ok, here's a card I made a few weeks ago at my friend Gina's house. I decided to make a little thank you card using a Paper Smooches stamp and some Echo Park Country Drive Paper. I used three different colors of Divine Twine to embellish it.

Have a great day everyone!


  1. This is SO CUTE!! I feel so bad for you and for your boy....I really hope it gets better soon!

  2. This card is so cute! I love it!

  3. So cute!!!

    Try reading "my first day at nursery school" - it seemed to work with J when he was hating drop-off. Good luck!

  4. Awww, he is so cute! I am definitely not looking forward when it's my turn to drop my kiddies off :(. Hang in there, mama!

    Your card is lovely! Awesome combo of patterns!
