“Gloomy Impression”

Description from Julie Shane: You know those days when people leave a really not-so-good impression on you. And you don't *really* want to hang them from their toes until they cry... but you kinda-sorta do!
My 10th graders did NOT create a good impression today.

    Been there, Julie! Only with the tinier tots! Some days are like that and others make the whole profession worthwhile! At least you’ve got this beautiful pick out of the day! Love the gray components with the Impression Jasper! I hope tomorrow brings you many all good things!

    Well you kinda have enough stringing material there to hang quite a few gloomy mood causers up. But the colora are so tranquil I’m sure you forgot all about that while picking them. I never realized jasper came in such a pretty soft color.

    I’m guessing there’s enough string here to do the trick… how many of them did you say there were? :) I like the straight up (not dyed) impression jasper and never thought to add the beige-y color to it. I like this a lot and you have given me a use for my stash of stones. thank you!

    Hi chickies… Yes, today was better. They are just SO ready to be done with the semester and move on to Christmas! Aren’t we all??? :)

    Becky, I have 134 this year. I don’t think that’s enough string… LOL

    Maria, I HONOR you! There is no way I could deal with tiny tots!!! They tend to invade your personal space and they are very needy. WAIT! That’s what my 10th graders are doing too! Ha Ha…
