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!
