Sometimes my ideas are so silly. Sometimes they are insanely time consuming. Sometimes they don’t work out. When they DO work out? There is a beautiful happy dance in my brain and joy every time I think of it! I can try to ignore my ideas. They behave badly (the ideas) and kick at the dirt like a child who has been told no.
Each year about this time I start getting great ideas about what I would liked to do for my students and the teachers who work with them. They all work so hard. I appreciate them. I love my work. I REALLY love the idea of my creative work complimenting my education world work. It makes my balance seeking Libra soul happy.
Here’s the thing…I usually don’t do it…the ideas. I run out of time.
This year? Well, I see such hard work happening. I see people going above and beyond quite a lot. I decided I was going to do it! They might not know all the love and care that went into each step…but I will know and that is sort of the point. So…
And then I mod podged them on, and glued the magnet on the back.
Then I made them toffee. While it cooled, I sewed little bags for the toffee and decorated the gift bag.
Do you see what I mean? Silly how long it all took. It didn’t matter. It needed to be just so…and it was. I delivered them and I was happy and it was good.
