The buses are running once again. Each year, since I left the teaching profession twelve years ago, I have made a point to go out for breakfast on the first day of school so that I can watch the buses pass by enroute to their dropoff sites... just because I can. This year was different. Since I am once again a student myself, I decided to stay at home and create some school supplies for my two classes this first term... Basic Herbology and Fundamentals of Nutrition. Every student needs school supplies to start the new year. I decided I needed some cheery bookmarks to keep my place as I progress through my texts.
I started out on a blog called How About Orange where I saw the cutest cupcake picks and before I know it I'm on Little Paper Dog's Blog printing off her free download to make the picks. I hang out a while there and end up eventually at sharonrowenphotodesign.blogspot.com. Now how'd I get there?! A link link here... a link link there... here a link... there a link. Everywhere a link link. That's how.
The bookmark on the left is a free download I found on Sharon Rowen's blog. To create the bookmark on the right, I changed up her colors a bit to suit my taste by using the "hue and saturation" option in my digital imaging software.
