Craft Bloggers Unite 07/25/08

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Friday 25 July 2008 at 3:34 pm

I finally managed to carve out a little craft time for myself today. I’ve been grading and grading and grading compositions endlessly lately, so today I allowed myself an hour of “play time.” It’s amazing how much more relaxed and better focused I feel. I try not to grade when I’m too grumpy because I don’t want it to affect my students’ grades. As it is, by this point in the semester I feel like screaming sometimes when I see a comma splice! But, just about a week and a half to go and I get a short break before fall semester begins. Needless to say, I’ve already started my craft “to do” list in anticipation of my time off. If you have been working way too hard lately, take a break and pick up some crafting ideas from my fellow craft bloggers.
