I know, I know, I said I would do better with updating this blog but I haven't done a whole lot of crafting lately. I did make one more dvd bag, but I've decided for now that the whole new years resolution in going out the window. We've decided to move and I've been busy with that. I did, however, make the kiddos' teacher, aides and bus drivers presents at the end of school. Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of any of it. I painted sayings on ready made canvas bags for them. For the teachers and aides (5 total), I quoted Dr. Seuss's The Lorax:

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not. (If that's not the direct quote its darn close, LOL, I've already packed the book so I can't quote it exactly)

For the bus drivers and aides (3) I simply wrote: Bus Ladies are Cool! I was going to paint the Dr. Seuss quote for them as well, but after painting it 5 times before, my hands were tired. I kinda put off making the gifts for lack of inspiration. I didn't start them until the Sunday before school let out.

We have been steadily looking for houses and we finally found one. We are moving into town, woohoo. When we bought our current house, we didn't realize just how isolated we would be. It will be nice to be around people on a regular basis again. It will also be nice to have our kiddos in better schools. We've lucked out so far with their teachers and such but we felt it was better to move now. I think the whole family is excited about the move. I know I am.

Oh but here are the pictures of the Easter Chickens I made this year. I made pompon chicks to go inside the eggs. I made them for a friend at Gavin's speech.
