Holy Necklaces, Batman!

This picture is a closeup of the 107 necklaces I sent out today for a cheerleading team in Dallas. Most of my business comes from boutiques and larger organizations. I had to snap a pic of this pile of ribbons and washers before I wrapped them all up because it looked so cool. They all say the same thing...I googled it...evidently it is a double secret cheerleader code that no one knows except the cheerleaders and coaches! I was so happy to ship them off today, only to get an emergency order for 30 more today! Rah Rah Rah! ;o)

My double secret life!

Yes, it's true...I'm a middle school teacher in real life, but most of you know that already. I've been blogging with my students for the past two years and have found it to be incredibly valuable. Here are two of my informational blogs (ones students don't post on) for any other crafty teachers out there.

The make.a.difference project is a year-long 8th grade project in which each of my 8th graders is required to choose a person or an organization that has made a positive impact on humanity. They research, write, present, and do 8 hours of community service based on their project.

The middle school advisory blog is designed for teachers that are using an advisory program. We meet our advisory 3 times a week for a theme based life skill or character building lesson. The goal is to have the student be able to connect with an adult in the school community where the advising teacher acts as an advocate for the child.
