What to do with wooden blocks? (279 out of 365) #blogaday


These look really cool! It would take some time to paint each and every one, but the blocks could be enhanced and much more entertaining for the students. I would love to have this as a DIY project on a holiday break 🙂

I have two today because I missed one of the 15th..


Playful pictures of pets (181 out of 365) #blogaday

I really want to make time for DIY when I am finished with grad school. It is so relaxing to be creative, and just get in the zone of a cool project for a while 🙂 I used to be very into making designs on Publisher or Powerpoint, but I lost that part of me somewhere when the demands of college kicked in. The fifth grade classroom and my writing class started to bring back my creative side with poems and posters, but I want to strive to go even further with homemade crafts and useful things. This picture alteration seems very cool! It also doesn’t look too complex (some DIY’s have sewing or something that I am not skilled at). I plan to make these with prints of my friends, family, and pets for around my house or gifts to them.

A bunch of blogs! (157 out of 365) #blogaday

After about 6 months in the blogging world, I thought I would broaden my interests for blogs I follow. I used to stay tame with what my blog was about – following fellow teachers, children’s reading as well as writing, and education. From browsing the “recommended blogs,” I now follow blogs about DIY, music, book reviews, cute videos, food, culture (Nairobi women, African elephants), and homemade comics. It is really fun to look at other people’s blogs and interests because I am becoming more interested in their hobbies. I feel the connection of the blogging universe ha! I still can’t believe that I have over 200 followers 🙂 This #blogaday challenge has helped me stick with something and make it part of my routine every day. Creating a blog was a great somewhat spur of the moment idea.
