WOYWW -Its been a very hard two weeks.

Good morning all the wonderful people from WOYWW and all the other amazing people that come to visit me and leave such wonderful comments. Today I took a photo from a different angle so that you can see the 'shove to the side' method I have been using to make space to create. That pile on my right is starting to take on life threatening proportions. I fear for my life every time I walk past the desk (or some poor grandie walks past!)
 The last two weeks have been very hard indeed. I have been trying desperately to stay on top of things and I think I have just about done most of the things I should have done. The principal at the High school I teach at lost her dad and the funeral was yesterday.
One of the girls in my homeroom class was fetched from school on Thursday last week to be with her mom while they switched off the life support. She had been suffering from brain cancer for a very long time.
That caused mass crying in the grade 11 group and we spent a good hour or two in the chapel, just praying for her and her family and counselling the rest of the girls. That funeral is today at 11h00, so please remember Megan and the rest of my girls in your prayers.
 I leave you with the cards I made doe her and her family as well as for the principal and her family. As you can imagine a whole lot of people needed sympathy cards. The first one is from my homeroom class to Megan.They all signed and wrote messages inside
 The next two card were made using white embossing and household bleach. LOVE the results I was watching a video on StampTV and just had ro try.
 Then there were a whole lot of other quick, clean and simple sympathy cards. Also made after watching Gina K on Stamp TV.

Hope you have a great week. Hopefully I will get to visit some of you now that things have calmed down a little bit.
