Happy Mail!

Here are some "Happy Mail" peppermint patties I made with my "Post A Note" set by Artful INKables. I used the sentiment and the flower; the flowers are paper-pieced. Wouldn't these be nice to receive in the mail? :)
I had a busy day at work yesterday; one of our 5th grade teachers was sick, so I administered my first two CSAP tests to her class. It was a little intimidating at first, but I was very proud of myself when we got through the session :) The kids did a fantastic job following all the testing rules. I also got some good news from the principal: I'm one of the 4 staff members receiving a "Values Award for Teamwork" from our district this year! We all nominated staff members a couple of months ago, and I am thrilled to have been chosen, especially since this is my first year working at the school :) There will be a ceremony in April which we all get to attend.

Congrats Toni!!! That is absolutely awesome! So when you finish your criminal justice degree, how about adding a teaching degree to that? (like I should talk, eh?)
