My favorite graphics designer is Irene Alexeeva and I was so tickled when she started designing "blog couture" - ready made backgrounds and headers for blogs. She recently updated her blog with a beautiful fall theme but hasn't offered it for sale yet so I decided to use her graphics and see what I could do. Not too shabby if I do say so! If you would like to see more of her work her blog address is http://irenealexeeva.blogspot.com/. The Heartistic link on the right will also take you there.
I have been very busy with the start of the new school year. For the first time in quite a while I am the sole ESL teacher and have no one to share the many responsibilities with. The number of teachers may have decreased but the number of students and amount of paper work sure didn't! Next year at this time I should be able to say "This is the last time I have to do this and the last time I have to do that." Retirement will be right around the corner!
