Desk Calendar 2013-2014 School Year

This is the last week of summer for me and one of my goals was to post some products I made for STAAR Alt. Not knowing what the tasks are for this year yet I decided not to post them.
Today I organized my flash drive to free up some space and save some time at work looking for things. I found my desk calendar file I made 2 years ago for Christmas gifts due to Target not having the $1.00 desk calendar. I think after Christmas Target had them.
It was fun printing them out in different colors and seeing friends and family use them all year long.

Check out my desk calendar on TPT.

Make A 3D High Heel Shoe, Earn A Gift Card!

My favorite SVG site is up to it again by giving free gift card if you complete one of their products.
Here is my shoe I created. Even put a bow and button on the top of it using Zots.
I created the picture using the app PicCollege on the iPod Touch. I had to download this app for a training last year.

Glad I do not have to wear a shoe like this!

Maple Manor House

I have had this done since this file came out but been too lazy to take pictures of it. This house is all made out of just paper and glue. I had a blast making it and going to give it away to a Halloween loving person! Check out their house at Maple Manor from SVGCuts.

New Chair

I share my classroom with two of my best friends. I have appointed myself as the decorator in the room. I was tired at looking at this chair for the past 4 years and told the owner of it I was taking it home. She did not have any request so it was all up to me. Bought some gray paint and made myself use fabric I already had. Used some flannel I bought from Joann's Black Friday sale. It is durable but soft enough. There is a back pillow and an extra small pillow for it that I am still decided on what to do. The extra small pillow has seen its days and might be replaced with a new insides.

Make A Luxury Handbag, Earn A Gift Card!

My favorite (SVGCUTS.COM) and only site I pay for SVGs is having a cool promotion. If you download a free luxury handbag file and send them a picture of your bag they will send you a $6.99 gift card for your next purchase!

Here is my bag I made. I was very happy how the white flower on the quote part of the flap lined up.

I have several family and friends birthdays this month. I used the Fruity Fiesta kit from SVGCuts. It was fun picking paper and putting the glitter on! Cannot wait to make more from this kit.

I have also made a board on Pinterest of all of the SVGCut files I have. It was a good way to organize what I have and use them this summer.

Market Bag Crochet Pin-along

Now with summer starting I am free of teaching and time to craft! Saw this on Pinterest yesterday and was heading to Joann's for yarn. I am trying to not buy supplies and use the ones I have. They did not have this yarn so I decided to use some Sugar n' Cream yarn I already had. :( Today I decided to go to the other Joann's and they had the yarn and I only had 2 coupons so I bought Jade Jersey and Cotton Harvest. This yarn feels awesome and so much better than my typical cotton yarn. I always try to make something homemade for the holidays for everyone and this looks like a easy gift. 

Here is my Pinterest board for the event!

Recovered Office Chair

I was tired of looking at my husbands ugly computer chair. He says the cat is the one that made it look that way but his pants helped. I cut out a pattern out on pattern paper (that my husband dumpster dived at a closing tailor shop by his work) and then cut out the fabric. I used a home decor fabric that I had in my closet and stapled it on the bottom of the chair. It does not look pretty on the bottom but did the job. I ran out of staples and going to get some more to reinforce it some more.
