This was my first week of summer holidays yet I spent 4 days at school sorting, tossing, packing, cleaning and then bringing some stuff home each day. 36 years of teaching materials means a lot of stuff if you are a collector. I did sell some books but have many more to sell! I hope to have a yard sale the end of the month. It is so hard to let go of units and lesson materials you have used. I threw out so many things. But it must be done. I will probably be at school a couple more days next week.
Then I still have more work at home - to sort and toss materials at home.
I did get a bit of art done. The daily ICADs (through Daisy Yellow) are a fun diversion and I have been working on my Stamp carving course this week, so some of my cards used stamps I carve. Still need a lot of practice tho.
July 3 - flowers from a stencil on the gelli plate
July 4 -carved flower stamp - stamped on gelli paper
July 5 carved stamps
July 6 - carved heart stamp, on gelli paper in honour of our 11th anniversary
July 7 carved horse stamp - in honour of the Queen's Plate in Toronto - which we attended and enjoyed.

I finally completed the challenge for Paper Traders - "Do the Right Thing", using a tag.
