A Birthday Candy Gram!

I work with a great bunch a people!
Yesterday I was greeted with this big candy gram outside my classroom door and the entire staff wearing black!  I of course, stood out like a sore thumb wearing my "You Can't Scare Me I am a Teacher" flourscent pink shirt, as THAT's what my team said they were wearing. (Friday is dress down day) Good trick huh! But, of course, a birthday in an elementary school is always happy and fun!
  (I'm totally going to "pin" this to my candy/food fun board!)
This weekend finds me with a household of family and friends celebrating my 50th. 
19 months old and 50 years old
 May has been a slow sewing month....but with only 3 1/2 more days left of school, I promise some quilty inspiration in June! Especially from some projects I picked at the HMQS.

A very Happy Half Century to you Val, and I'm speaking from experience when I tell you, that the years that follow, will fly by at the speed of light. I know, I'm full of happy thoughts, but sincerely do wish you the happiest of birthdays, and for all those to follow. lv2bquilting2@comcast.net

Love this. I'm saving the idea for when hubs turns 50 next year. I bet you had a great day.

That's a great birthday card! I made one similar to that eons ago and it was great fun, too. What a time for a birthday - right at the end of the school year. But you will survive. And here's a positive note: the 50's are wonderful! Why? Because you have 10 whole years before you're 60, haha!

Barb said...
