grrr, i accidentally published this post the other day... sorry if it's a re-post for any of you!
good news- i've been picking up more students lately!
it's been a great blessing. but truthfully, it's part of the reason i've been feeling a little overwhelmed lately. more students mean more responsibility, more things to remember, more skills to learn, etc.
organization helps me with this. so i got an ugly folder at staples in which i could keep files, lesson plans, and papers to mark down weekly progress. i thought it might be more fun to look at if i jazzed it up a little :)
first, i made a little cutout from brown wrapping paper, stamped it, and glued it on the front cover (a process which unfortunately, i did not document.)
but i felt like the folder needed something else... so i decided to glitter it up.
i just mixed a few drops of water with about 1 tbs (?) of mod podge in a bowl, then added a packet glitter i had floating around.
it didn't turn out quite the way i wanted, but i do like it better than before. my glitter wasn't very sparkly, and next time i want to focus on getting a more even coat.
oh well. at least i have a place to store my info now!
