From the TeachersPayTeachers store of speech-language pathologist Becky Mitchum, ANOTHER MONDAY: WHY NOT SMILE? is an original line of cards for you to download to cheer a colleague near or far. Download each for $1 once, use a million times for a million friends.
Every day can feel like a Monday, especially with difficult caseloads, classrooms, or faculty/administration, but friends like you can make any day better! Original whimsical sketches with silly text bring a smile.
Download the cartoon to print on cardstock: it is outlined in black for easy cutting and pasting to your own blank card (you provide). You could also mount it on raised dots for a special 3-D effect. Blank cards with envelopes can be purchased at any craft store, along with the raised dots. In central Arkansas, for example, Hobby Lobby sells packs of 50 blank cards and envelopes for around $8, about .16 per card.
"Of Corset" is an illustration with text describing a singer's determination to reach a life's goal. Text reads: "Erline had all her ribs removed so she could get a corset tight enough to support the high notes she knew she would have to be able to hit if anyone at the New York Metropolitan Opera was ever going to take her seriously."
The text appears to the right of a woman singing, in an old typewriter font. Boom. A one-of-a-kind card to show a colleague you've got her back, and to remind her that life is too short to be serious all the time. Today might be Friday, but there's another Monday ahead: why not help someone face it with a smile?
