For whatever reason, too many teachers are receiving pink slips. In other words, being terminated. We need to personally support these hard working souls with humor, caring, or just a quick thank you. Sometimes a teacher just likes to laugh. Here are some suggestions:
 “You know how to tell if the teacher is hung over? Movie Day.” Jay Mohr
“School is like a lollipop. It sucks until it is gone.”
“I would thank you from the bottom of my heart, but for you my heart has no bottom.”
Gym Teacher or Coach
“As long as teachers give tests, there will always be prayer in school”
School’s out for Summer!

Biology, Botany, Science, Ecology
“A gifted teacher is as rare as a gifted doctor, and makes far less money.”

Time was, sending out Christmas cards was a time-honored tradition. One not to be messed with. Lists were made. Names were checked off as cards were sent as well as received. Every precaution was made so that no one was left out.The cards were displayed in inventive ways with pride. It was always a part of the decorating scheme. So many were usually sent out that printing the signature line became de rigueur. Businesses also sent them out. Even address books came with a separate line for each name to keep track of Christmas cards sent and received.
However, soon flocked Christmas cards with elaborate designs gave way to cheap photo cards made at the local drug store. Time to show off pictures of the kids, grandkids, dogs, cats, and vacation shots. Ho hum.
With today’s busy schedules and the general cost of postage, we think twice about to whom we send cards. This may be the one time of the year that our high school friend or college roommate hears from us. Maybe there is a lonely aunt who whose day would be brightened with a special card. Certain in-laws get them, others, do not. However, who wants to spend money on something that will eventually be thrown away? Enter the quilted fabric postcard.
Fabric postcards have long been the rage in the quilting world. It started as a way to experiment with new techniques and exchange with other quilters. Usually a stiffener is added as the batting layer for easier mailing. The 4 X 6 inch cards cost only 27 cents to mail.
Today it is a booming business on Therefore, I have just added 5 new holiday cards to my Postcards and Quotations series for the Holidays. The cards use old photographs, raw edge applique, and landscape techniques.I will be adding more cards up until the holidays, so stop back often if only for a giggle for the day at
