Here is how mine turned out. I bought the paper by single sheets at Micheals and had a lot of fun choosing colors and designs. I'm not really the craftiest person on the planet (as evidence by the fact that I do not have cute scrapbooking paper on hand), but I gave it a whirl.
I have a few bubbles here and there as it was my first real go with the Mod Podge. But, overall I'm excited about how they turned out. Ready for the close ups? Can you see the bubbles and maybe a few other small tears? Oops!
I think the best part about these new clipboards is that I will be able to spot them on my desk. They won't blend in with all the other paperwork and other random things. Somehow, someway, my desk is ALWAYS trashed at the end of the day and I mean it is covered in...in...well, I'm not really sure exactly...everything. Now, at least my clipboards with important paperwork will be like a guiding light as I go through the daily task of straitening, organizing, and getting my life back together in general. :)
I spent the rest of my week making my house look very bare and making my guest room look like a storage unit.
We are pretty much all packed up. I have stacks of boxes strategically placed throughout my house and I'm eating off paper plates for the week, but I'm so excited to get on with this move. Cross your fingers that nothing happens and we close on our house this Friday. That means Saturday is moving day. Woot! Woot!
In the midst of all this craziness, guess what? My dog goes outside to play ball for, seriously like 10 minutes, and the pavement is TOO hot! He burns his feet and I mean, HE BURNS HIS FEET! The pad on his left front paw blistered up and was peeling off his foot. No good. He earned himself a trip to the vet and a round of antibiotics.
I'm happy to report that they removed his bandage Friday and he's back to his happy self.
Finally, if you are not linky partied out, don't forget to join Fiction Friday: A Celebration of Children's Literature. You can join anytime during the week, I just choose Friday because I'm a teacher and I like alliteration.
Only three people have linked up so far this week (insert super big super sad frowny face) but I have already heard about so many new great books (insert super big super smiley happy face). So come on over and join the fun. Why not make Monday a two for one linky special? I give you all permission to write 2 posts. I can't wait to see what you have made and what you've been reading!
