Teacher Anya- that's me!

Hi friends,
Today I have a card for the first challenge from The Sweet Dreamers Bloggers. Our challenge was to create a card that showed what we liked using our favorite color, as a getting to know you. So, here's what I created:


You know I'm a 3rd Grade teacher. I'll be starting year 14 at Hogwarts-- OK, not actually Hogwarts, but there are always lots of adventures that go on at my school! After all these years, I still enjoy it (on most days- wink ;)

My Anya is wearing purple because it's my fav color. The chalkboard lists my favorite things:
1. Hello Kitty (what's not to love- hello!)
2. Cooking- not cleaning up! I love food so I enjoy cooking. I have been trying Rachel Ray's 365 meals cookbook & although her recipes require a lot of ingredients, the food is soooooo delicious! It does take me an hour & a half to make a 30 minute meal for some reason!
3. Reading, especially in the horror/suspense genre. I'm currently working on Angels & Demons- which I'm enjoying.
4. Watching horror/suspense movies- I think I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie!
5. Hangin' with family & friends doing all of the above with them.

Thanks so much for peekin' today & for letting me share a little more about myself. Why don't you follow me to my fellow bloggers & meet them! (They're listed on my side bar.) They are so super talented it's just a matter of time before I'm in the board room getting fired! But in the meantime, I'm going to learn all I can from them- especially coloring with Copics. I'm still a newbie, but one day I hope to join the Colorista ranks. Ahhhh, sweet dreamin'---
Gotta Go!

  9. Sooo cute and so informative! Just love that image and your use of the chalkboard...so clever. I taught jr high for about 12 years...which probably explains my bizarre sense of humour!

  11. Adorable card. Love how you added you favorite things to the blackboard, clever! You cracked me up, because I love Rachel Ray, too, but can never get a meal done in 30 minutes. Thought it was just me!
