a window full of happy

I usually hang art up on the line to move it out of the way for new art that needs a flat surface for drying. This assortment of art waiting to go home was too happy not to photograph! We have our weather sun catchers on the window, our veggie prints hanging on the wire, our pool noodle sculptures on the shelf, and an be-glittered pine cone or two as well. Swoon!

what can we do with earrings?

A friend of mine gave me a large bag of jewelry. I took it to school and immediately took apart all the beaded bits and put them in a bead bowl. The rings, bracelets, and necklaces that were not beaded went into our classroom jewelry box for the kiddos to play with. But what to do with all the earrings?
One of the kiddos knew just what to do. This basket would be perfect. Look at that fine motor work!
Isn't it pretty? After all the earrings were snuggled onto the basket, he promptly put it in his head as hat! Ta-da!

mother's day gift wrap

For Mother's Day, the kiddos made sweet Sculpey trinket dishes and watercolor painted wood tags all wrapped up by their own hands. How sweet are these?
