Quote of the Day

November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.”

Elizabeth Coatsworth

Classroom Wednesdays: Post It Up!

I love Post Its.  In fact, I consider myself the Queen of Post Its because I have so many.  I thought this idea from Molly at Wild Olive is such a great way to personalize your Post It, especially if you into leaving cutesy little notes for your loved ones here and there.  Now go spread some love by checking out the tutorial here.

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

Classroom Wednesdays: Recycle that phonebook!

It’s always nice to be “green” whenever we can and I think this funky pen holder takes the cake.  It is made out of an old phonebook!  Isn’t that a wicked idea?  I tell ya, some people are so great at thinking out of the box!  If you are intrigued and want to make one of your own, head over to Chica and Jo and see the tutorial here.

Classroom Wednesdays: Rings!

Aren’t these ribbon rings unique?  Jessica of Happy Together created them and has a wonderful tutorial to share with you. See it here.  Now, this isn’t my thing in terms of jewelry, but they’d make gorgeous napkin rings as well, don’t you think?  Enjoy!
