This has been a very interesting year. I have been SOOO busy with school things all year, that I don't think I have accomplished much else. It's good for it to be over. That is one thing I like about teaching school, you get to have a break and start over again. I am looking forward to a nice summer---with no summer school :) I will be going to several classes and a I have quite a bit of school "work" that I have to get done this summer, but I am hoping that I can find time to do some fun and crafty things. The last week of school, we made slime---which was a huge hit. We did learn that Neon food coloring makes AWESOME colored slime--but it also stains your hands really bad. I got the recipe for my slime from Steve Spangler's website.
One of my girls made this for me out of her slime---made my day.

I made this little flower arrangement to go out by Steve mom's grave. There isn't a headstone yet so he has wanted to keep flowers on it, so far we had had a live hanging basket but we are going to replace it with these. I think they turned out pretty good, i just hope the flowers stay in against the wind.

What do you give a boy for graduation that isn't going to school right off, and isn't moving away. I saw this idea on Pinterest and tried to find who did it but couldn't. I made the saying and added pattern paper and I think it turned out okay.

In the past few months I have been asked to do to many back drops. One I am not really that creative, and two it is a lot of work. Well you have seen the first back drop from a few months ago, and I will say it turned out really cute. Here is teh second back drop. It was for the 4th grade music program and we had only a week to do. I should add here that I most certainly did not do most of the work. Steve and Ashley did most of it. You should take special not of the Mary Poppins and the cat posters, they were free hand painted.

I am so excited about my Mother's Day project for school this year. I love them...and my kids were so excited because when I made my trio of flowers and put them in the classroom, one of their first questions was, "Do we get to make those for art?" I was like, NOOOO. Until I couldn't think of anything to make for Mother's Day and it was sitting there. I thought, why not? I loved having all 23 of them lined up in my windowsill. I think they are so cute, so here are pictures of the different colors.

This week is teacher appreciation and so we are giving our teacher a little gift each day this week. They have been pretty simple ones, found of pinterest with free printables for a couple of them. Megan loves her teachers every year and really likes giving them a gift, she askes everyday what the gift is suppose to be for the next day. I hope that her teachers know that she likes them and we appreciate the time they spend on our child.
