Down and Dirty!

Hi All! I spent yesterday trying to be all crafty. Mrs. Dillard over at inspired me with her Dr. Seuss chair.
Here is Mrs. Dillards Chair.. cool or what?!!

I had an old, white bookshelf in the garage that was serving no purpose... so- I decided it needed a makeover. Check. it. out.

 I will add it to my classroom library! I can't wait to get it to school and add my flower arrangement that I made {I will post that too when I get the ribbon on & all cutsy patootsie!} All of this blogging and pinterest has gotten me all inspired to try and find my creative side. Ok.. anyway.. here is what I used to create my bookshelf!
tools needed
I used:
  • bookshelf
  • Dr. Seuss's ABC book (got at half price book store for $2)
  • Sponge brush
  • Pampered Chef nylon pan scrapper - for "no air bubbles!"
  • scrapbook paper
  • tissue paper
  • Modge Podge- I used the paper/gloss kind
Love?! I think I do!  I  will post it's home when it gets there! I am trying to stay away from school for a few days. :)

TODAY-- I went to my parent's farm to help out with shucking, cooking, and packaging my favorite.. SWEET CORN! YUM in my TUM! Guess what I am having for supper??!

Dad cookin and coolin the corn! Then it was packaged! mmm..mmm..good!

Last night.. I also got my hair done.. oh, how I love that! Spur of the moment.. we added a blue and purple {fav. colors} feather to my hair too! If I wasn't sitting in my scruffs with "un-did" hair I would show you. :)
From You get the point?!? ha!
 Ok.. I'm done rambling! Have a great night! Time to solve some Wheel of Fortune puzzles.. :)
