This is an Autism Awareness frame that I made to put a picture of my students in. We actually made these frames in my classroom last year to send home as gifts to my student's parents. We had taken a photo of them and put it in the frame. I really liked them so I decided to make one for myself. I thought it would be cute to sit on my desk!I made it just by taking an old puzzle that was missing some pieces and spray painting them either red, yellow, dark blue, or light blue. I then just hot glued them to a frame and wah-lah! I think it's cute, and it will definitely have a spot in my room!
I love these wooden letters that you see everywhere! I found this one at the craft store and I thought it would be great for my classroom. I have a thing about using "Rainbow Colors" as I call them, otherwise known as ROY G BIV (But in my opinion the I and V should be combined to make a P for purple, and another P should be added for pink!). So I use ROY G BPP....Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, and Pink in most things that I do, and for pete's sake, please let them be in that order!
One of my best friends from college, Amanda, is getting married in October. Her Bachelorette Party is this weekend and so I had the task of making her a sash to wear for the night. This isn't my first sash to make, in fact this is my third! I just think that the options in the stores to buy are just so plastic-y and boring! So I bought some purple silky fabric, a fusible webbing, and some of those crystals. I use the no-sew fusible webbing to hem the edges of the fabric to the size I want, then I hot glue the crystals on. I can knock one of these bad boys out in about an hour, so bring on the next bride!
