Teacher's (and parents') Delight

This time of year it takes me twice as long to read the morning paper because I am ever on the look out for colorful enclosures to use for artsy purposes.
The ad magazines and full page adds are SO plentiful that my collage/scrap box is overflowing. You'd think that would be enough, but noooo...
What does it say about me when I start selecting the packaged foods I buy for the colors of their boxes?!!

If I am to believe my weather person on TV, much of the country is either already or about to be gripped by cold or wet weather and a lot of kids are going to be wondering what to do with their time indoors. Well, here is the answer -- use what's in the house already and see what you can create. 

With teaching on hold until January, shopping and decorating done, and presents wrapped, 

(I can't even BELIEVE I'm this far along this year) maybe I'll even see what I can do with some of these household finds.


  1. Check out Michael Albert and Cerealism a
    It might give you great ideas for your cereal boxes plus put a smile on your face!

  2. Thanks. I took a look at it last week when you and Erica were commenting to each other about it. My smile was quite wide -- loved it!
