May 2009 Newsletter, Issue 7
Can you believe it is May already? I just heard that May is the second busiest month of the year with of course December being the busiest. I believe it. I’ve always found May to be full of end of the school year activities, field trips, ceremonies and so forth.
I’ve been teaching 6th grade religious education at St. Thomas Aquinas and in May, I’m wrapping up my school year with the children. My middle child, Emily and I have been and still are taking cake decorating over at Michaels Crafts. (If you’ve been on my blog, you will have seen some of the cakes we’ve made). Then there are boy scouts and Venture scouting activities that include lots of camping. Top this all off with my children’s birthdays and so needless to say, May is a very busy month. It is for that reason; I’ve decided not to hold any classes in my home during this month. I hope you all understand and I’m wondering if your schedule is as full as mine is.
Have you been to my blog lately? I’ve been putting up videos on it as well as on YouTube that teach the novice how to weave baskets. The videos get posted weekly and take you step by step through the weaving process. They are the same video in both places; it’s just YouTube gives you a bigger viewing screen. So for any of you, who have been hesitant about what it’s like to weave a basket or if you forget and get stuck in the weaving process, just take a look at the videos and if you want, follow me along in them. As I complete the basket, I’ll post full written instructions on my blog.

Happy Basket Weaving and
Baskets of Blessings!
