I had such a great day yesterday. My DD's school does a program called Everybody Counts. The goal of the program is to make children aware of different disabilities. One day each year several volunteers spend a little over an hour with the children doing hands-on activities with them. Each grade level focuses on a different disability. I got to spend time yesterday teaching the kids in L's class about hearing impairment. There was an experiment with sound waves and a quick game. I had such a good time and it reminds me how much I miss teaching. I am not quite ready to go back yet but I do miss those sweet faces and being in the classroom. Tomorrow I get to be with the 4th graders doing activities about physical disabilities. Should be fun!
I wanted to share a quick card with you. I do like that a little bit of the paper piecing is making a come back. Not sure if I am ready for all the paper piecing projects of my past (you should see the little girl on the slide I made) LOL but I do like using it once in a while. To create this card I simply found a soccer ball image and printed it to match the size of my Magistical Memories chipboard circle. I then cut it apart and used it as a template for my black pieces. I did it this way because I wanted to change the direction of the stripes on the ball but you could easily just print it on the back of black patter paper and cut it out. I printed a second ball on white paper and used the back for the white parts after inking the edges. Piece everything back together on a painted chipboard circle.
The mountain of laundry in my laundry room is about to take over the whole house so I better go dig in. Have a wonderful day!!!
