Early Christmas Gift for Myself.

Each year I try to get myself a little something for Christmas. It's usually a product I have had my eye on during the year and felt too guilty to purchase without any particular reason. Last year I was fortunate enough to find the Cricut Expression on sale at Walmart. This year I am super fortunate to have found the Gypsy at Michael's for $99. As a bonus, I was also able to purchase an ATG at 50% off.

Missing my Dad, a Vietnam Veteran

In 2009, I lost my father to Multiple Myeloma, a form of bone cancer that continues to afflict many of the Veterans exposed to Agent Orange while serving in Vietnam. Diagnosed in January, he fought a valiant battle - symbolic of the soldier he was. Unfortunately, he lost that battle May, 2009. Today, I would like to honor my father's memory by sharing him with all of you, my scrapbooking family. Although it has been more than a year since his death, I still cannot find the strength to scrapbook our most special moments together. I am inspired by my father's love of life and family. He was taken from us much too soon.

I would like to share my love of scrapbooking at my local Veteran's center by volunteering to hold scrapbooking classes. I am just unsure if this would be meaningful enough to them. Has anyone done anything similar? If so, would welcome your thoughts and ideas.

Thank you for allowing me to share my Dad Victor with you today. God Bless our Veterans, our soldiers who continue to serve and protect, and God Bless our Nation.

Seeking donations for project-based learning materials for high school students with special needs.

It is my policy never to ask for anything, but today I am not asking for myself. I am a high school teacher of students with learning, behavioral and physical needs located in a high poverty area of the Bronx, New York. Donor's Choose is a wonderful program that profiles teachers and projects that are in need of funding. I am seeking nominal donations for basic art supplies in the classroom. Please spread the word. Click on my link...please feel free to read my project and ask questions. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
