This past week I didn't have to work at all! It was WONDERFUL! This summer I am nannying for a family and they were on vacation. This week I am back to work, only for one day though! I could get used to this!
Last week I was VERY busy getting some things ready for my TpT store as well as doing a little crafting. Here are some things I have been making!
Last summer my boyfriend and I went to Florida for my 30th birthday! This is a picture from our trip. I have had this large picture printed for months and haven't done anything with it. This past week I took my leftover fabrics from my file cabinet makeover and created this hanging frame.
Here is what I used:
1. A piece of scrap wood (about 1 inch thick)
2. Spray adhesive
5. Staple Gun
6. Sewing machine (it could be done without one)
So basically, I took the chevron background and used the spray adhesive to adhere the fabric to the wood. Then I used my staple gun to support it by securing the fabric to the sides. I used the spray adhesive to adhere the picture on top. I sewed the little triangles, so they won't fray, but you could simply cut them out with fabric. I hung it in my little craft area!
Last week, I pinned the cutest idea from Pinterest. The idea was to take brochures and use those for persuasive writing. So, this weekend while up in the NC mountains, I grabbed a handful of brochures. I created this little basic template (nothing fancy) to go along with it. Click on the picture above to grab it on google docs.
Last week, I finally finished my Reader's Notebook Starter Kit! You can grab a copy of this mega pack at my TpT store!
I also finished my packet for the book Amelia Bedelia's First Day of School! This has been on my to do list for a LONG time! This can be found at my TpT store, too! I also took 7 of the Amelia Bedelia packets I have and created a zip file with all of them. It saves you about $7.00! WOW! Check out what I've been up to over at my TpT store!
