Today has been a hectic day. I had to run errands this morning (one was to pick up the forms for my job!). Then, I went home to get a few things done. After that, I ended up cleaning my grandparents' downstairs. That took me from 12:45 until 4:30... their housekeeper isn't going to be able to clean for them anymore, so I'm their summer fill-in. I figure it will be nice to have some extra money to buy supplies for my classroom.
I made a vase of sunflower pens today. You can visit this website for step-by-step instructions (scissors will work instead of wire cutters). It turned out so well, I don't want to use it for my classroom... I made one for our house a while back, so maybe I'll just switch them out. However, I did use nicer pens in the one for school. I figure I will be using them very often, so I purchased my favorites (RSVP fine point). I'll have to post a picture later. I purchased a glass bowl with a fluted edge and some craft stones to house the flower pens.
