End of ASL

Oh yes, I know... I've been so out of track these days...  Between work, and the ASL (American Sign Language) class, I've had to park for a while my favorite hobby... because I am only human.  

And speaking about the ASL class... I was supposed to end the basic course today... We received a call yesterday because the University employees were going to work on some air conditioning fixing in the classrooms so the last class was postponed for April 6.  We cannot make it for April 6, so we called the professor to see if he was ok to meet in other place...or any other date.  We are just 9 students and we thought everybody was happy to end this soon...  My husband and I have worked so hard these six weeks... not because this is something we need or  will live from, but because we take it seriously.  And last week we studied everyday and practiced for the final work (3 to 5 minutes signing about a topic)...  

But I guess I still don't get it... I have to understand that not everybody is in the same page.  Most students we called were just so happy because the class was canceled!  LOL... and the  professor just... was... there...  So, I got frustrated a little bit but then thought it was ok...   But one important thing... The professor said we (hubby and me) don't necessarily have to go to that class if we can't because we definitely passed!  :)  

I prepared some party favors for the students.  Since my final work was about scrapbooking hobby, I planned to finalize my signing by inviting them to identify their names on these...

Each party favor has a name in ASL.  That was going to be fun... I know.
We plan to give the professor a video with our final work and also these gifts so he can distribute to the students.  

I embossed several goodie bags and embellished with similar elements, but ensuring each one is different and personalized.  The name is in ASL alphabet.

Here they are...

Ana


Keren

Tania

Wined

Yoliannie

Mildred

José
Carmen





But this is not all...
I had a surprise for my husband with a special little bag for him... LOL...  Now, I will have to give it to him... but I will validate if he's reading my posts and will wait until he asks me for this party favor...

Tks for stopping by and please keep enjoying this imperfect life...  it's wonderful, isn't it?
