I made it through my first week back at school. I am so excited to be back teaching kindergarten after a 2 year hiatus teaching music.
But let me tell you - this past week was a DOOZIE!!
In all, I have taught kindergarten for 10 years but the last 5 school days have got to be the most crazy first days I have ever been through.
Between the girl who yelled at me non-stop for 2 hours straight, the 3 children who showed up in diapers (not allowed!) and the surprise Autistic child who kept escaping from the classroom - I was VERY ready for the weekend!!
Needless to say, there wasn't a lot of extra stuff being done around our home this week. However I did complete a decor item that I started in August and finally got around to taking some pictures.
I am very pleased that my project fits in nicely with a new project link up party that these bloggers have put together:
Each week they'll give us a theme for our project and hopefully many, many creative minds will link up their creations.
Here is Septembers list of themes:
For my "BLUE" project I created some art work to fill the ho-hum space above our master bed.
I've wanted to do a monogram project for ages so I figured this was the perfect opportunity!
I had the large wooden letters leftover from another project that didn't quite make it into fruition. The lacey laser-cut frames are from Michaels.
Here's where the BLUE comes in!!
(It's Martha Stewart craft paint in Aquarium.)
The frames got a quick shot of cream coloured spray paint before hubby and I centred them above the bed. A few tiny nails in each corner hold them in place.
It took a few tries before we figured out the best way to hang the letters. In the end I used stick tack ( you know - the gummy stuff that teenagers use to hang posters up) because it held the letter close to the wall and I could apply it in several places to ensure a good hold.

|"B" for Bronwyn|
Whew! That space above the bed has been empty for nearly 5 years. I never thought I'd get anything up there!
Thanks again for popping by!
