woo hoo for gift cards

I'm sewing some pioneer style satchels for my mom. She is a teacher and the whole 5th grade class at her school is going to Sutter's Fort here in Sacramento and she asked if i would sew her 66 satchels. I said I was glad to, and thought I was just contributing to the experience of the children, which was good enough payment for me. I just found out that I will be getting a $50 gift card to Michaels!!! Yahoo

Now to decide if i'm going to build my stamp collection or get a cricut cart. LOL

That sounds like the $50 gift card is well-deserved! That's sweet of you to sew the 66 satchels! Take pics of them.

I have a sensitive side for teachers because my mom is one. They don't get the credit they need most of the time. They clearly don't get paid enough for what they do!

I also feel bad for the children who have parents that don't care about thier schooling. Sad
