back to normal…

Hooray!!  I’m done with the class projects for my kids school auction…life has been put on hold for pretty much a month and now I can get back to normal… or  life which is pretty much a three ring circus around here

the skinny is every grade, K-8 has a project they do, led by me…the projects are then put up for auction and they can go for some stupid amount of money…I’m not really into kid art,  but hey, to each his own…here’s what my blood, sweat and tears have been up to…oh yeah, and the kids helped too

The hubby’s favorite…

6th grade

 

5th Grade

This one is one of my favorites, the kids write someone or something they pray for or a verse or Psalm on the strips of paper…I get a little choked up when I read them…

7th Grade

This was done by kindergartners using ink and their fingerprints,  not sure how I feel about it…

Kindergarten

The one I can’t wait to see finished is getting stretched on a canvas and I won’t get it back until the day before the auction…nothing like a little procrastination to get the heart rate going!!

Now I will be cleaning off every surface  in my house that has been covered for the last month…I have a list of projects I’ve been wanting to do and it’s now a mile long…I’m so excited to start getting shiz down around here I could cry…for real

Bring on Christmas!!

DIY Christmas globe…

I just realized a few days ago that Thanksgiving is next week so I really shouldn’t jump ahead of myself and start thinking of Christmas already…BUT, I am.

Some girls and I went to a little store that’s owned by a friend of a friend of mine.  They only open the third weekend of every month so you pretty much want to commit to getting there…

They’re all ready for the holidays and I got some cute ideas…One in particular I spied on the holding shelf of their store.  Every time I walked by it I checked to see if the person picked it up and checked out.  I thought I was about to luck out until I noticed it was gone…and into the hands of one of my friends whom I cussed out immediately!!

The said item…

Now it looks like I’ll have to DIY my Santa globe…

Here’s a couple other ideas I got from their store, easy, cheap DIY’s…

good for a kid’s room…it’s stacked lamp shades!
