Creations in the Makin'

Wow!! I've had a busy day! HA! For summer anyway :)
I'm currently homeless because of the job change and move. So I'm staying with my Grandmother until my apartment is ready. One thing about my grandmother she is the QUEEN of garage sales!! I knew I had to harness this power fo the good of my classroom ;)

We set out on our first adventure today in the big city (she lives waaaaay out in the country :*) Although we did not make it early enough for the GOOD goods at the g-sales we aren't giving up so easily.

Plus I still managed to gather goodies for my classroom and I CAN'T wait to start creating!!

Tissue paper and checkers and pipe cleaners...oh my!!

Check out this adorable ^^ animal print tissue paper!!

The animal will my safari theme perfectly and with the bright colors I will add my own little flair ;)
But what am I making you might ask??

I'm planning a unique game for my new English classroom!! Again come back to see how well it works out (I'll be testing it on my Grandma...she doesn't know hehe)
