Packing My Classroom

The last time I walked out of my classroom (Friday, March 6th), I was eager for Spring Break.  Little did I know that it wasn't a typical break. 

Today was the first time back in my classroom.  I was there about the same hours as a typical school day.  However, today the bells didn't ring.  Students didn't walk into my classroom.  Nobody asked me for pencils or permission to charge their phones.  There weren't conversations about their vacations or the newest blockbuster movies or latest video games.  The student notebooks remained vertical aligned and my classroom library books were still standing spine out.  I didn't have to remind anybody to put their earbuds away.  My coveted Flair pens didn't magically disappear.  

One day we'll be together again, but for now, even the annoying little repetitive things in a middle's school teacher's daily life is what I truly miss.  


350 Sales!

WOW...I can't believe that I just made 350 sales.  From the bottom of my heart --> THANK YOU!  

¡Besos y gracias!

I love Stitch Fix

Do you Stitch Fix? 
I was reluctant at first but I'm so glad that I took the plunge.  I just received my 11th Stitch Fix last week!  I've been adding cute quality pieces to my wardrobe for the past 2.5 years.
If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix, it's a NO subscription and NO hidden fees, online personal styling service.  The first time you sign up, you complete a styling quiz which provides your likes and dislikes, measurements, price points and how many times you want to receive a Fix.  They match you with a personal stylist and a few weeks later, you receive a personalized selection of clothes in the mail.  It's fun trying out new clothing in YOUR bedroom.  If you love an item you pay for it online and if you don't (which rarely happens), you return the pieces in a pre-paid mailing envelope.  
I have set up my Fixes for 4 times a year, one Fix per season.  I often visit the Stitch Fix website to view how to style certain pieces or add additional items to my wishlist.

I am a bibliomanic... a book lover... an avid reader.  I love books! 

If you search my previous posts (label = BooksRead), you'll find a multitude of book cover collages.  Every book that I read is a special reminder of a story lived, a journey traveled, and hours spent immersed in somebody's reality.   Last year, I read 75 books!  My 2020 Book Challenge is 80 books!!!  Every month, I inch closer to my goal.  

It is only fitting that I create a bookmark.  Not just any bookmark, but a glitter filled bookmark to celebrate and shine a sparkly light on my love for books.  Visit my ChickRocks shop to snatch your bookmark. 



Heart Mini Cards

I love cards!  ❤️
These cards are so cute and perfect to give to a loved one or use as a gift tag.  Each card is designed, printed, folded, etc by me. The cards are 2.5" x 2.5" in size, printed on cardstock, and comes in a clear cellophane sleeve.  Cards come blank on the inside for your own personal message!  Visit my ChickRocks Etsy shop for more info.

Books Read - April 2020

I did not read as many books as previous months because the demand for fabric face masks have been at an all time high.  I'm not complaining, I get to listen to hours of my favorite podcasts while I'm cutting fabric, ironing, or sewing.  I will share some of my favorite podcasts in a future post.  

These are the books that I read during the month of April 2020.  Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond, Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore, Children of the Stars by Mario Escobar, and The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell.  Click on the book covers to learn more about the book on Amazon.

300 Sales!

Thank you! I can't believe that I just made 300 sales.  I love making things, whether it's fabric face masks, bookmarks, jewelry, etc.  I'm very humbled and grateful anytime that somebody purchases ChickRocks!  ¡Besos y gracias!
