Something a Little Different

Lately, there hasn't been anything blog-worthy happening around the Elgin household.  The only projects I've done consist of Powerpoint presentations for my Masters classes and projects for school.  Needless to say, it's not been very eventful around here aside from having a sick puppy.

I did, however, get a couple of projects done today, once again, revolving around my job.  I made a poster today for my sophomore classes who are preparing for their state graduation exam.  During their writing, it helps to have an idea in mind of exactly whom they are gearing their writing to.  After holding a "Test Lady Pageant" this was our winner...

They named their test lady Medusa Doonesbury Hotcakes.  I don't really know where they name came from...I didn't ask.

While I was working with the Cricut, I decided to try my hand at making a card with one of the new program I got for Christmas.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

I could make an envelope to go with it, but that requires a Cricut that uses 12x12 paper, and mine only uses 6x12.  So, I'm either going to have to use a friends and make a bunch of envelopes, or figure out a way to sell my Cricut and use the money to get a bigger one.  I think I'll go with the first option.


  1. I just absolutely love Medusa Doonesbury Hotcakes's princess crown on the poster! Ms. Hotcakes and the power of your teaching will no doubt help the Soph's pass their ECA's.
    Love it!

  2. I tried to comment on this the other day from my Ipod and just gave up...
    ANYWAY.. when you told me about the test lady, I was thinking like a lady who gives test for IEPs or something, hahaahaha.
    I love it!

  3. LOVE the card you made me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE!
