Wednesday Write Up




Hello friends! 
Here is is already Wednesday. Whew!

This is what is going on here:
I am two days OUT OF SCHOOL and 
I am so excited! It wasn't a bad year
but it was so full of drama and I am 
glad to be away for awhile. Things 
will be so different next year---
should be interesting.

Before we left, we had the annual 
party for those retiring or moving on 
to new adventures.
For our retiree, I made this "candy cup" . 
The cup had words on it that fit her 
retiring. She loves chocolate too. It was 
a fun little gift among the many she 
received.





Our niece's graduation party was last 
Saturday and for part of her gift I made 
this jar. We put filler in it to match her 
college colors and then we put rolled up 
dollar bills in it. She can use it for laundry, 
snacks, emergency cash etc.





I put a cute label on the front. When it 
is empty she can refill it with loose
change or she can use ot for something 
else.




We put it in a bag that matches her 
high school colors.

Today I finished unloading all my
school stuff, sorted through it and 
put away what I need for next 
year and tossed what I didn't need
anymore. I can see the dining room 
table again!!




~Keep on Dreaming~

    1. It is always great fun to find our table. It is used a lot and usually has stuff on it besides dinner.
