I know that I've been unusually quiet these past couple of weeks but I've been super busy crafting! My school decided to do a fundraiser to help the family of one of our students who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma last May. She had to go through some aggressive chemo/radiation treatments and is now thankfully in remission as of this past January. The money raised is to help her family pay the medical bills that very quickly piled up on them.
Now, I have a soft spot for students who have serious illnesses but this particular young lady found a super special place in my heart. You see, Taylor is an amazing student across the board. She managed to keep the third highest average in my Spanish class and is determined to be a foreign language teacher some day. She missed around 3 days a week throughout the Fall semester due to chemo or dr appointments, but she never missed a beat in keeping up with what was going on in class. She will walk through my door chattering away at me in Spanish, always with a smile. Taylor never once let her cancer bring her down. She approaches every day as an adventure and kept her chin up even though I could tell with my mother's eyes that she was in pain. She's a real trooper!
Anywho, let's continue on before I get all mushy and teary eyed. :)
One of the fundraisers was a garage sale/craft fair. I decided my contribution would be Nom Noms. I pulled out my scraps and just started sewing. All told, I think I made just under 2 dozen of these little monsters and every single one of them sold.
