Transformatin of an old cardboard box

Student were leaving odds and ends on my ironing table and around the classroom on a regular basis so I needed  a spot where I could drop these things in.


We have an old carton box all dressed up to work as my organizer.

I've had this fabric for years intending to make hubby a shirt from it but my sewing pals thought not.

I still don't agree but maybe they see something I don't.

Well, the fabric is perfect for this project! Did I mention that my classroom is suppose to make me feel like I'm still in Hawaii? Everything in there is tropical and I have big plans to add to my collection -

I smell a palm tree in my future!

I wanted to keep this apron even though my name is not Janni!
This was my second attempt, somehow first ones never quite make it.

Personalized Covered Chair


I love this.

My own lepeord skinned office chair. I can't take all the credit for this - I had a very talented student work on this. I started it and she took over and this is what we ended up with. It was relatively easy and adds so much spice to my workroom...
