Project Pallooza


Raise your hand if you have a mountain of school projects stuffed in the closet like I do. Kid's projects are amazing and fun to display, but at the end of the year it’s hard to choose which ones to frame and which ones to store (and... shhhhhh... which ones to toss). 

I finally wised up and created this lovely 11 x 14 collage (at Costco for only $2.99!). It's framed above my son's desk and it's super colorful and cute.

Capture projects digitally by scanning them or taking photos. Then upload them to Costco, Walmart or Shutterfly to create an inexpensive collage, a mouse pad, mugs, stationery or a one of a kind calendar. Just think of the possibilities!

Week 38: Final Thoughts


So this is it! The year is drawing to a close.

I've had so much fun with you guys this year. What an amazing group of kids and parents! I'm glad I entered the blogging world last September. Your weekly comments always brought a smile to my face (some actually made me laugh out loud!). Reading your responses and listening to you on Vocaroo, helped me get to know each of you. Thank you for playing along.

For the last week's response you can leave your final thoughts about the year.  

Say anything you want to say... to me... to WAVA... to your classmates... to your family... or to yourself!
