My sister shares my love of baking--so we spent the entire weekend doing just that! We made strawberry cupcakes with a strawberry whipped cream frosting and chocolate cupcakes with flowers!

|I realized today that I have started collecting really random things in my classroom. I guess its normal... I just hate to get rid of these things hoping they will make a cool project one day!|

step1: find objects that you would like to put in it. Rocks, moss, sticks, beads, things from your travels
step 2: find an appropriate container: cake dome, fancy plate, etc.
step 3: assemble found objects in an interesting way in your container!
I made 2 different terrariums because I wasn't sure which one I wanted to go with. So try out many different combinations of objects and containers!
This semester I made sketchbooks with my students. We just used 2 pieces of sturdy card stock and made the filler pages with recycled paper. We used a simple binding technique, variations of which can be found here. Everyone had to completely cover the card stock with other materials/papers and make it their own! These books would be great for travel journals,notepads,or just regular sketchbooks.

I have a new found hobby. After not wanting to spend 4.99 and up on a card that didn't completely thrill me in the greeting card aisle, I decided to start out on a more personal note(pun intended) and give my friends and family handmade cards that I created! Here's my first few so far.
|For my friend that ran her first marathon:)|
|For the husband on valentine's day...|
|For my sister's birthday|
