Hi, friends. Sorry for being MIA.ย I’m popping in quickly to give you a little update on things!

Most of you probably know that I’m currently in my senior year in college to become a kindergarten teacher. Last Friday, I received my results and I’m super excited to announce I officially graduated with distinction. ๐Ÿ˜„ย Hooray! That means I’m DONE with being a student and my career as a teacher can kick off in September once the new school year starts.

The last couple of days I’ve been busy getting ready for graduation, celebrating with family and also sending out cover letters to nearby schools. That’s why I haven’t been card making in a little while. However, I’ll get back to it by the weekend. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย Do you have any requests for me? Specific techniques or themes for a card and video? Just let me know in the comments.

Thanks so much for supporting me throughout my studies. I appreciate it. I’ll see you in a couple of days. Have a nice day! ๐Ÿ’›



  1. How awesome, congratulations. You will make an amazing teacher. Good luck getting a job.

  13. CONGRATULATIONS Laura!!! I know it’s always such a relief when you can put the school work behind you and move on to the next exciting chapter. I wish nothing but wonderful days ahead for you and know that the children you will be teaching have no idea what a treasure they will have in you. They will quickly learn as will their parents. I just had a friend retire after 31 years of teaching kindergarten children….it has been Karen’s true passion. Big Hugs!!
