Welcome to The Beginning of School Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the Beginning of School Blog Hop hosted by our ever talented Kathryn from Creations With Kathryn. You should have arrived from Lissa's So Many Crafts So Little Time. Doesn't she have the cutest stuff. I love her ideas.  If you just happened on my blog and would like to start at beginning, go to Creations With Kathryn.

Well school is just around the corner for my nieces and it has already started for many. I had planned on making some bulletin boards for my classroom, but I was unable to find a job around here (again). Schools are just not hiring. I feel sorry for the students. Too many kids in classrooms make it hard to learn.  I am gonna put in a political plug (sorry) but please encourage Congress to put money back in the schools and classrooms. Taking money away is only going to hurt the USA in the long run.

Well today I spent time at my parents with one of my nieces. She is getting ready to start 6th grade. I can't believe she is going into Mid-High. Seems like yesterday she was Honorary Flower Girl at my wedding. She was 1.5 at my wedding and refused to walk down the aisle with her sister. She is wanting to learn to sew. We taught her how to make a pencil bag. she had so much fun making it, she made one for a friend too. She even got to embroider her name on the bag.

Well, I hope everyone is enjoying this hop. I am up to 95 followers. I am excited. If I can get to 150 followers during this hop, I will do some kind of candy. Not sure yet, but I will do something. Your next stop on the wonderful trip is at Jen's Confessions of a Scrapaholic. Yum, Yum, I just saw the cake she had on yesterday's post. Yesterday was my 10th Wedding Anniversary. She should have made a cake just for me. :)

Until next time ~ VinDeeLoo

Michelle said...

This is a great idea and I love that she did it herself... I totally agree with you that the school's need more $$$ and more teachers.... that's the one thing that shouldn't be cut... at my kids school they now have no sports programs and no arts programs and they did away with 6 teachers assistants... what a mess no one is going to learn anything. Okay hot button subject... sorry.

Good luck at reaching 150 you can do it.
