What I Have Been Up To the Last Two Days....

When my little boys were at the old elementary school, I did the bulletin boards in the front entryway every month for them.  When the new school opened last year I wasn't asked and I didn't volunteer to do their boards.  I honestly needed the break.  Well, a few days ago I got a call from the vice principal asking me if I would do the boards this year. I said Yes, I have trouble saying no :)

So, for the past two days I have been up at the school getting the boards done before school starts next week.  Ya, I didn't realize how HUGE these boards are!! The old school has two small boards, so I wasn't used to working on this grand of a scale. You can see the doors in the pics to give you and ideas of how big they are.

I really Love how this one came out and the tree ended up better than I imagined it would.
 I'm fond of the little puppy I painted :)
 Can you see the 3d affect of the tree?
 I'll leave the tree up all year and change it with the seasons.
 Even the janitors commented on how much they liked it, made me happy!
 This is the other board, they use it for birthdays each month.  This one came out OK, not quite as good as I had envisioned it to be.  And wow, there were a ton of candles to do for September, 53 students have a birthday that month. I'm hoping the other months won't look quite so cluttered.
9 + hours of work on these boards, believe it or not. Lots of cutting and laminating and figuring things out.  But they are done and I am glad I didn't wait until Monday to do them!  And I am very grateful for my 14 year old daughter who helped me out.

Have a fantastic weekend,



  1. Boards look amazing!!! You better plan on getting asked every set the bar so high no one else will take the job!!! :)

  2. An incredible job Tiff, you are such a talented and creative lady. I'm positive the staff and students will appreciate the bulletin boards and all your hard work.
