Creative To Do List

Unfortunately, with school back in swing and my duties keeping me busy I have not had time to craft and create- unless of course we are talking station charts, picture schedules, behavior plans, and bulletin boards. Here is a list of the creative things I'd like to try when I have another break (sorry for not posting pictures... I'm feeling incredibly lazy tonight):

1. Cute Address Display... over at The DIY Show Off she has created address numbers on flower pots and pumpkins! So cute!

2. Classy Wipe Off Calendar from Stacie over at The Creative Crate

3. Letter Block Displays also from Stacie at The Creative Crate

4. Basically anything from Stacie at The Creative Crate... judging by the starred projects on my Google Reader

5. My teaching clipboard is in need of some major love like this one from Amy at Modge Podge Rocks

Pink Saturday- posted early!!!

As a stressed out teacher, I have had a full week of meetings before, after, and during school with plenty of frustrating situations. To further entertain myself and stretch my limits I signed up for a two day conference Friday and Saturday... thus the early blog.This is my beautiful goddaughter back a few months ago when she was spending time with me, and my poor dog who was transformed into a pink mummy... how she managed to get him to sit still for this still baffles me. Happy Pink Saturday friends! Rest and relax your weekend away as slowly as possible!

Photobucket Fun

For those of you wondering how in the world I got sunglasses on my cat... the secret is good ol'

1. Sign up for an account
2. Upload a picture of your choice
3. Select "Edit Images"
4. Pick your photo to edit
5. Check out "Effects" for added fun, I really like the "Old Photo" effect
6. Click on "Decorate"
*If you want a border add it before you add any stickers
7. Choose "Stickers" and position where you want
8. Click "Save Copy"

I then highlight and choose "Save Image As" to save it to my computer from the website

Here are some fun alternatives to my blog pic:

Google Reader

Okay fellow bloggers, if you don't know about Google Reader you HAVE to check it out. My friend Sarah over at Love, Love, Love shared it with me. It's awesomeness! It tells me all the new posts to my fave blogs on one page! Gotta try it! <3 href="">

You Know You Have OCD When...

For the benefit of my own entertainment... you know you have OCD (the Obsessive Compulsive clinical kind) when...

1. you leave the flea market with the overwhelming need to find the nearest sink and wash your hands
2. you have to edit all of your blog posts to make sure the font is the same and unbold the ones you accidentally bolded
3. you stop and line up all the candles perfectly straight on your entertainment center
4. you refold and rotate the wash clothes because they didn't match the rest of the others folds
5. you have to get a different dress off the rack because the one you had picked up had a stitching of white thread that should have been gray

We won't even go into my nightly rituals that will start here in about five minutes, but these are my top five for the day.

Pink Saturday!!!!

This is one of my favorite retreats in the house... my pink bedroom... with my sweet little Tinkerbell daydreaming.

Missed Pink Saturday- Here's Pink Sunday!

Okay, so I happened upon a "Pink Saturday" blog and decided I have to do that on my own! Unfortunately, it's Sunday... but I figured no one would mind a Pink Sunday! So here is my pink find that I cannot wait to start using at school tomorrow!

Kitchen Work Top

Okay, this is a project I started in October 2008. I measured the recess of a kitchen wall and decided I was going to install a 'counter top' or desk -like area for my laptop and teaching related work. Originally it was going to be stained to match my handmade cabinets, but the staining process was a nightmare. After five different types and shades of stain and tons of sanding that got me nowhere (the stain stayin!), I decided to primer the sucker and paint it red to match the rest of my kitchen. Here is my finished project. As soon as I finish cleaning up the kitchen I'll take pictures of how it looks as a whole picture!

Awesome Little Wire Bird's Nest

Just Something I Made

How cute and neat is this little nest? I can't wait to try it out on my own!

Okay-update on this bird's nest, here are my creations:

The silver wire is 24 gauge and was the easiest to use. The bronze/copper color wire is 30 gauge and took a ton of time to finish because it's so small. Sorry about the blurriness, my camera isn't what it used to be.
