Girls Gone Crafty will host an online crop in our forum. Just join us @ 6PM on Tuesday, May 5th. Challenges will be issued and games will be played. Jump in @ anytime. It's going to be a lot of fun.

I can't believe the school year is almost up. I'm anticipating the summer, but at the same time it will be a busy one. We have a lot planned and hopefully summer school isn't one of them.

I've been quite intrigued with how our society has shifted to a blameless one. We focus all our energy on finding ways out of being responsible for it, but it could be a little easier if we just faced things head on and took responsibility. I've mainly encountered this in our school system. I've probably been in the system for 10 years off and on and see it everywhere. Especially with the blame always falling to the teacher. I will not say every situation that this would be true, but what are we telling our children when we don't give them ownership over their lives to some degree. What are we telling our children when there are no consequences or we dismiss their consequences. What are we telling them when we accept them failing in a class and look to the teacher for the reason "they" are failing. Are we telling them that what they did was okay or that it is someone else's fault, and are we telling them that they don't need to take responsiblity for their own work and that someone else is to blame when they fall short. I truly think it's something to ponder over.
