I was sprucing up my classroom today when I found something I'd never seen before--as in, I didn't know it was in my room this whole time, and also, I had never seen a box of thumbtacks quite like this one! This box is a very nearly perfect cube. I wish I knew the exact year it was made.
The main reason I was at school today was to drop off a few items--folders, a pillow, a new-to-my-classroom desk chair, a few dry erase boards for homework assignments, some decorations--and put up new fabric on my bulletin board.
Know how I do fabric? Know how I have perfected the art of measuring things carefully and consistently? I have. I totally have. I sew things. I sew really cool things. You have to measure carefully to pull that off!
Guess who didn't measure her bulletin board before buying bulletin board fabric today. Go ahead and guess.
Colorful! Spicy! Bold! Inviting! Fun!
...and at least 10 inches too short.
I'll keep you posted on how this works itself out. In the meantime, we can all meditate on the merits of measuring twice (OR AT ALL) and cutting once.
