it works...

we've been trying out succulents lately...
and they are super cool additions to the garden, but can get pricey...

I'd posted HERE about some clippings and now I'm 
trying to propagate from leaves...

here they are freshly plucked...

and just two weeks later
Whallaaa, little baby buds growing out of the leaves....
omg love it! 

now, you've got to be a patient gardener to wait for the 
propagation to run it's course...I think I can wait...
I'd love to fill up this space with TONS of baby succulents
so it looks like succulent carpet...
happy gardening!

easy cuff diy

I found the cutest diy cuff supplies at Michael's...

you can find the cuff and findings for under 4 bucks each...


all you'll need is the cuff, findings, and some E6000 or Hasulith glue 

I attached some mixed metal rosettes to this cuff... cute! 

happy jewelry making :)

genius bar for the classroom


summer is the perfect time to get the Cricut out 
and make some new posters...

with our school going 1:1 with technology, 
I thought it would be a great idea to set up a Genius Bar
in the classroom...
I may also call it the Collaboration Station
where students can get together with their laptops and
collaborate.  I also purchased some large laminated
whiteboard poster boards to line the Genius Bar
area with...how cool will it be for the kids 
to jot down notes as they work? 



I pinned this classroom HERE 
"How About Adding a Genius Bar to Your Classroom?" Engage Their Minds, 8/08/13


I realize we don't all have the furniture and resources to 
set up this type of collaborative learning environment. 
However, with some creativity and thrift store/garage sale finds,
it's possible to add a few pieces of furniture to make this happen. 
I plan to give up my favorite rectangular table that houses 
In-Boxes for all of my classes, forms, worksheets, etc.... 

let's see how this goes :)

succulents

I'm sort of in love with succulents lately...

they are so hearty and water-wise...a great choice for 
our SoCal gardens

I found these little guys at the farmer's market
and put them in one little pot...so cute :) 

click HERE for tips on propagating these guys...super easy,
and an affordable way to add plants to your garden :)
  

yikes, they are so darling anywhere in the garden!

I have lots of little clippings going in this little planter...

jewelry organized

I convinced the hubs to pop out some closet doors 
so I could move an armoire into the space...

I used some teacups to organize earrings...

bottles for bracelets...

previously these fabric covered canvases were on the wall...
but I like them so much better inside the armoire~

boutonniere pins hold the earrings in place...

yes, I basically took over the top half, but all of my 
jewelry is contained in one place...

:) happy Thursday!
