As a first year teacher, I am BUSY BUSY BUSY.
Accident report: Several broken needles, sent a girl to the hospital (she got her finger stuck in the needle and when she pulled it out, the needle broke off inside her finger!), used several bandaids.
BUT the kids have learned how to: Hand sew (basting and backstitch), we have over 200 frog puppets that we will hopefully donate to the Festival of Trees, they know how to make a loom hat and are currently working on a 9 patch pillow project.
Parent/Teacher Conferences are Thursday- wish me luck!
Zack and I have discovered Glee and The Biggest Loser. We enjoy watching them together. Its been so so nice to have Zack home at nights with me so I am no longer the MTC Widow.
I have made some new and delicous recipes!
I got the biggest paycheck of my life Sept. 15th- very exciting!!
I am on the Enrichment Committee for my Church and we have our big quarterly activity this Saturday, it's going to be great :)
And last, I thought I would give you a sneak peak of my latest craft venture. One mans trash is another mans treasure- SO TRUE!! A few weeks ago I went with my Mom and Sister to George's Architectural Salvage. It is in downtown SLC and we picked up a few treasures to make new again! I'm still working on them, but for now you can just see the 'before' and wait until the big reveal!
In case you can't tell what these are, that is an old window pane (glass still in tact) and a very old drawer. I also bought some old knobs too.
