An apple for the teacher

Debra Burgin Apple for the teacherUm, no, look closer … DH brought this gorgeous red pepper in from the garden for me, so before I cut it up for supper last night, I included it in my front entry tablescape.  The sheet music leaning against the wall is “Recess Time March” from 1911.  Can you imagine — 100 years old!  Occasionally I scout out the sheet music bins at antiques stores in hopes I will find one for my tablescape themes.  I’ve been able to get some really fun titles for practically nothing.

I deserve an apple.  I’ve been working so hard the last month on school stuff that it’s been really stressful.  Lots of sitting, lots of late nights.  Yesterday I vowed I would not stop for lunch until I was done with the material and it was emailed off to the printer.  At 11:30 I couldn’t stand it anymore; good thing I didn’t wait, because I didn’t finish till after 2.  Then I took a little break on the back porch with the grocery ads and headed down to the studio — remember me? — for a lovely afternoon and evening.  I have a big stamping week next week (three camps!), so I must keep ahead of things.

Just around the corner is Super Saturday.  I have created a card that is very unlike my usual work.  I think it just might go to Stampin’ Up! for the monthly Art Contest.

Did you know that Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, has a design contest each month?  September’s theme is Christmas Cards.  You can read more about her Creative Challenge here.  Six people win free stamps each month — why not play along?

    Can’t wait to see your card! but do you have to be a demo to enter Shelly’s contest? I guess I thought it was only open to demos?

      No, you don’t have to be a demo! Most of the entries seem to be from demos, but I think that’s just because we know about the contest, I think. Looking forward to seeing your submission!
