Great story! If you bought the cricut, do not worry! Your kids school projects will be professional!

Good to hear from you. What a story! Congrats to your daughter on her graduation.


Jan, you are too funny! I get my birthday presents the same way you do! Congratulations on Emily's graduation.


Jan.. I have to confess something to you. I haven't been faithful; I have skipped reading your blog for a while.. gasp! In my defense, I am a teacher & school has been INSANELY crazy so I just haven't been doing anything enjoyable lately.

Not all teachers (myself in particular) treat parents as this one has treated you. Shame on her! And payback (hers) is a #&$@%! Karma is gonna get her!

On to BETTER things.. CONGRATS on your free trip to convention & the fun times to be had! Can I come in your suitcase?

You know, it's odd how life throws garbage at you over & over.. then I (we) get a Jan Tink treatment! ¡Mil gracias! Luv ya!


Jan, that is quite the story! And. . . that teacher missed out BIG TIME on having your creative talent help her out.

Now, enquirin' minds wanna know --- what cutter did you get? A Cricut???? :-)

I have to say, Shame on that teacher!! Gee, now why don't more parents sign up to help out at their kids schools? Just think, they could have had a Jan Tink Masterpiece! Loved this post.


you are so much nicer than me!! I would have said ok . Than I would have made your cute little movie boxes and handed them out and they would love them more than the frames she suggestion and you would have been hero!! haha

Great story! I love your writing as well as your stamping! At least you scored on the die cut machine. Have fun.
