So I started this blog with the intention of being crafty ALL the time. Apparently, my thought process went a little something like this:
I want to be crafty ALL the time, like those craft bloggers. They always have the best ideas. How do they do it? Witchcraft? Maybe… Deal with the devil? Nahh I think the devil mostly deals with the people in charge of the education system these days… OH! Maybe it’s just the fact that they have a crafty blog that makes them crafty. That makes total sense. I’ll just make a craft blog and POOF. I’m craft-tastic.
Now, I realize the flaw in this logic. In fact, I admit that that logic really just doesn’t make sense. My point IS (bet you were starting to wonder if there was even going to be a point), I haven’t been very good about doing crafts. But I just did one. So I thought I’d share.
My Mom pinned this on Pinterest:
I could have just downloaded the print from the website, but where’s the fun in that? (I also didn’t know that until I went to write this post.) So I opened Publisher and went at it. It took forever but I finally came up with this:
I printed two out, slapped ’em in frames and BAM. I’m a craft goddess. I made a pdf for you guys to download but the size fits the Ikea frame I bought which has a matte. That means it’s kind of a weird size (3.5”x5.5”) but hey! If you go to Ikea and buy their $2.50 frames you’re in luck. Or you could just use a 4×6 and have half an inch of paper around it. I think it would look fine either way.
I printed mine on card stock I just happened to have and really like the way it came out. I’m giving them to my two favorite teachers in the world-my mom and my sister!
Here’s the PDF: Classroom Lessons
The first picture is linked to the website it’s from. I snooped around a bit and it looks like they have A LOT of awesome free printables, so you should check it out.
