AP Math & Mason Jars #NaBloPoMo

My next class (that starts tomorrow – EEK!) is AP Math, or Surveys of Mathematical Methods. Yikes.

Well, I’ve been reading the text – thanks to a $150 book – and apparently, I haven’t lost the math ability I had in high school! Color me completely relieved! I was totally freaking out wondering if I’d be able to pass this class because I haven’t had to use advanced math skills since oh, the last time I was in a math class. So today, I’m thankful that a major nervous breakdown has been averted.

I have another up-cycling idea for you too!

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I LOVE to craft…so my office/craft room is jammed with stuff for making things. Naturally, I pretty much am willing to cause physical harm to people in order to keep everything neat, but functional.

How cool are mason jar sewing kits? There is NO SKILL required to make these – just put a puff of pillow filler on top of the lid insert, cover with fabric, and glue the fabric to the back of the insert!

A huge thanks to Up-cycle That for this amazing idea!

Veterans, Credits, Bed-time, & Upcycling #NaBloPoMo

*author breathes a HUGE sigh of relief*

Connor is finally done being sick, and I managed to pass my environment class (the only 4-credit class required for my degree) with a solid B- even though my professor is apparently suffering from multiple personalities. She was more than willing to give me an extension because of Connor’s illness, but took huge points off my final paper for things even my English professors said was okay…go figure. So today, there are two HUGE things I’m thankful for – that the class is over and I passed, and to all the men and women who have or are serving our country.

The other thing I’m thankful for is that Kyle is sound asleep in HIS OWN ROOM. His bed. Not ours. Not Connor’s…his own bed! They’ve both been sleeping in our room since Connor got sick a couple of weeks ago, and although I love cuddling with them, I’m looking forward to a night of sleep without someone’s head jammed into the middle of my back. It didn’t take long to get him to go to sleep (he’s in a big-boy bed now), and there was no crying or anything…just some tossing around for a bit, then he just made himself comfortable and went to sleep! YAY ME!

Last for today, I found an awesome way to store thin ribbon – the kind that ends up a tangled mess no matter where you keep it. Can you believe how simple this is?

A huge shout out to Cut Out + Keep for this awesome up-cycling idea!
