Starred Items (Edited)

In Google Reader, I often "star" the blog posts that I really like.  The problem is I hardly ever go back to look at these posts.  I'm a post hoarder.  :)  Last night I looked through this list, because...well....I've had plenty of spare time this week!.  I wanted so share some of my favorite things from my list with you:
Oh, and I was right -- we were out for a 3rd day in a row.  And I know I won't be at school on Friday because I'm attending a training.  And snow is in the forecast for Sunday night.  So, happy long weekend to me?  I guess...  :)  [Edited: The training was cancelled.  Not sure if snow day #4 will happen.  I don't really care at this point, because the forecast seems to indicate that we're getting more snow Sunday night.  Also, this is probably a good thing because if we are in session tomorrow, I won't have to leave a sub with my very-well rested (read: hyper) students who are confident they'll be out on Monday.  No one deserves that, but I can deal with it.  :) ]

I have made some use of my time off.  I made this layout for the latest Creative Type challenge -- use type as an embellishment.  So I spraypainted the leftover from a sheet of stickers, and put them on one side of my layout.  I like it, because the Sassafrass stickers look like lined paper in the background, and the layout has to do with the pumpkin carving contest at school.  I thought it was appropriate.  :)  And I included some journaling on the other doily, and tucked it behind the photo.  It was a nice way to make use of my leftovers.  I find lately that I'm less and less of a manufactured embellishement kind of girl.


P.S. - Head over to Sarah's blog -- she's hosting a very fun game today!

Love your post!!!! the chocolate croissants remind of me of pain de chocolat when we were in the French Islands - I replicate that to an easy extent by taking my homemade bread right from the oven, slicing a piece, and then folding it over a piece of dark chocolate . YUMMMMMMM!
