You can spell out important words, or just have a letter or two, or even the star in the middle of the board. Or get equipped for a day at school, with your composition notebook, pencils, erasers and scissors!

This week is National Dog Week. I'm a dog person (better be, I have four of the furry monsters at home), so I'm always interested in fun little things for them. Here are a few things I found.

The kaleidoscope series is so fun, and a little retro! It would be perfect for my art classroom!
Here are some more of my favorites!

Even though I am not what I consider a "girly girl", if you have followed my blog for a little while you will notice a slight girly obsession with making flowers. I have no idea where this obsession came from but I constantly look at items and ask myself...can I make a flower out of that?
So it should be no surprise that I have yet another flower accessory tutorial. This flower is very easy to make and you only need basic hand sewing skills.
4 foot length of Doily Lace
Small piece of felt
Needle and thread (matching lace color)
Medium to large sized buttons
Gator clip and/or pin back
Hot glue gun
- Cut a 4 foot length of lace. Using your needle and thread, tightly gather one side of the lace.
Note: If your lace has an unfinished side or is pre-gathered, stitch along this edge. Even if it is pre-gathered you want to gather the lace as much as you can.
- Print out the Doily Lace Flower backer pattern. Cut out one of the shapes from the felt (Use the scale to make sure the print out is the correct size)
- Using the 1.75" felt circle as a base, start to sew the gathered edge of the lace to felt. Make sure to start on the outside, wrapping the lace around and towards the center.
- Sew buttons to the center of the flower. I used two medium sized buttons and stacked them to create my flower's center.
- Take the 2" felt circle and sew on the pin. If you plan to add a pin and a gator clip make sure your pin is sewn slightly off center allowing space for the gator clip.
- Hot glue the gator clip next to the pin and finish off the back by hot gluing the felt heart over the back part of both the gator clip and pin.
- Hot glue the pin/clip back to the felt back of the flower.
