The past few days have been a little crazy...not exactly how I like to enjoy a weekend, but hey, what can you do?

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of a cute craft Post-It Note holder.

This week, I finally have a reason to make one!  This week is Secretary's Day!  I decided to make one for our fabulous secretary Sheila.  She honestly runs our school; and beyond that she is a great listener, problem-solver, child-wranger, and fixer of all things.  She is the best listener.  There's this little chair that sits next to her desk...I think it is supposed to be for children in "trouble".  However, it is usually occupied by a teacher with a wary look leaning over Sheila's desk waiting for her much-needed advice.  Also, she is so good with the kids and maintains ultimate calm...even when the child in her care has done something completely stupid.  To all of our dismay and ultimate dispair, she announced last week that she is retiring.  No!!!

I have a few little things to give her for Secretary Day, but I thought this little goody would be cute too.
I don't have the Post-It notes to put on it yet.  I wanted to get some pink'll just have to use your imagination!
(Again, sorry for the poor picture quality -- I know, I know, I'm supposed to take picture of things using natural daylight.  However, I never have time to craft and create until it is DARK outside...)

Beautiful Things about my weekend:
  • New purse!!  So to come.  It was 40% off, plus a gift card.  Score!
  • Azaleas are blooming!  I was worried our little plants would not bloom this year --- however, they exploded in white blooms yesterday.
  • Sleeping in....ahhhhh, the beauty of sleeping late.  Nothin' like it.
  • Dinner with family, followed by bedtime routine with my babies (think snuggles, "one more story", and lots of hugs and kisses)  
  • my husband -- who knows how to deal with me better than anyone I've ever known.  He can smile and love on me even when I'm having  "grumpy day" and manages to not lose his patience at times when I don't even want to be around myself.
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend -- and that the week ahead is filled with beautiful things!
