Two weeks ago I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a convention in San Diego. This was a four day event for Activity Directors (ASB folks) and administrators. That convention is amazing! I always walk away with new information AND it's a lot of fun! Last week I was on an accreditation team that visited Oxnard High School. Every high school goes through WASC accreditation every 3 to 6 years. I was thrilled to be housed at a hotel on the beach and also to work with a team of great people - administrators and teachers from other schools.
Needless to say, coming back to work last Thursday was exhausting! So, after I got a few chores done, I was able to work on a banner that I've been wanting to do since the beginning of March. Today was the day!!
I got the idea for this banner from a blog called "Twist Me Pretty" (www.twistmepretty.com) and I'm really liking having some decorations in my office, so I thought this one would look nice on my windows.
|This banner would work well anywhere!|
This banner is made from burlap, different fabrics for the triangles, and ribbon. It took a couple of hours to make, but it wasn't too terribly difficult. It's a bit different from the one on the previously mentioned blog, which was modeled after a Pottery Barn banner. All the directions will be on the crafty directions page.
