Friday Finds: having fun with the app Waterlogue

A special thank you to the many of you who have been supportive with your comments regarding my teaching frustrations.  Wednesday evening was parent/teacher conferences and I saw 4 (yes, that's right, FOUR) parents in three hours.  I can only say that the classroom in clean, filing caught up and papers are graded. Spring break begins today at 3:00 pm!

This awesome ATC arrived in my mailbox this week from Lisa (LoveToCraftInAZ).  Thayer is my oldest son’s name and as you can guess, hard to come by things with such an unusual name.  If you are wondering, it means “from the nation’s army”.  His father and I were both in the army stationed in Germany when he was born.  I am creating an altered book for him and this will have a special page created for it.  Many thanks Lisa!

 I have been envious of those bloggers out there using the app Waterlogue to create watercolor—like images with their iPhone's.  My hubby set up Dropbox for us so I can take photos from my phone, drop them in the Dropbox then use his iPad to play in the app.

I have this bumper sticker on the bumper of my car:
A couple of years ago someone placed this special note on my window shield one day while I was out shopping.  I ran across it this week and it made me smile all over again.

Like most pet owners, our pets make our life complete; the house just doesn't feel right without them. Thankful everyday for the gift of their presence.
