  4. I definitely left my spray painting to the Mr. as well! Although I don't think he likes me "supervising"! Check out my....I mean 'our' crafts on my page! Your chair is awesome by the way. And I completely know what you mean about tons of ideas popping in your head, hence why I have a mini spiral to keep them all in.

  11. I just bought the Scotch laminator too. I read that it doesn't do well with cutting the sheets. Is that true? I saw you had small cards for your Fishing for Compound Words. Did the laminating stick when you cut them apart? I have been afraid to try it.

    1. I have cut out several things so far and have had no trouble... BUT I also leave a small amount of space around each thing... I do not cut SUPER close to the thing I laminated... so that might have something to do with it... BUT I have laminated all types of stuff so far and it is fine

  18. I love your chair! I just made my own crate seats for my guided reading table and became a little OCD about what the bottoms looked like. Whenever the bottoms didnd't look so nice, I had to keep reminding myself that it's about what the top looks like...

    Glad I found your blog! Check mine our if you get a chance!
