Time to Say Goodbye

This is it, my very last Pebbles post. My two years of being on their design team has come to an end. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with the wonderful people at Pebbles. It really was a fun experience. Pebbles was one of the first manufacturers to give me a chance and I will always be grateful for that. Making chevrons was a little tricky for me, you can find the tutorial I made over at the Pebbles Blog right HERE.
Today is also my very last day of being a stay at home mom. (heavy heart). I will return to teaching tomorrow. I got a letter from my district yesterday stating that I should be prepared to answer the phone between 8 AM and 9 PM today. They will be trying to reach all unassigned teachers. It would definitely be nice to know where to report tomorrow!
I will not whine about returning to work. But gosh I am sad. If only the economy hadn't plummeted... but, I am grateful to have a job to return to....
I will keep you posted!

Clever use of the chevron. It does look a little tricky.

Good luck with heading back to work. I can see how this can't be easy, but I hope you get to a great school.

BTW...any luck on the 17 Day Diet? I'm hanging steady at about 12 pounds and I'm in maintenance mode. Just wondering if it's working for you at all.

Good luck.

Long time, no see, Samantha! Oh those chevron stripes are the coolest! I so want to try those out now!

GOOD LUCK TOMORROW! I know it will be hard but you'll do great, and be back in the swing of things in no time!
