So, it has been quite a while since I've sat down to post something substantial. I promise I haven't been sitting around being lazy...quite the contrary.
For the past two years I have been adjusting to my new role as the Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at my high school.
(Haha! Obviously a posed picture of me ironing a whole lot of nothing!)
German was phased out and as sad as that is, I am so lucky to have been given the chance to teach yet another subject that I LOVE!! I actually get paid to teach kids how to sew, cook, live a productive life and be good parents. It doesn't get much better than that! It surely has been keeping me busy. It's kind of like having a whole other house and family. I'll talk more about that in a different post.
I missed blogging and making stuff that didn't pertain to school, so I recently had the genius idea (haha!) to combine the two. My blog will still be my creative space, but maybe with a slightly different focus. I can't wait to give you a glimpse into the day in the life of the Home Ec teacher! I can show you all what I am doing with my students in class and hopefully as I learn the tricks of my new trade, I will have more time to sew things that aren't for school, too, that I can share.
Sewing still remains my passion! I have done a little sewing for a local craft fair and I just joined the #blackandwhitequiltswap on Instagram. That is the first sewing swap that I've done in years. I'm so excited to start! It feels so good to get back to what I love to do! I hope you'll continue to follow along with me on my journey.
