Oh my word...

Can I just tell you how long it took me to make this dadgum bulletin board?!  I was up at the school for 8 hours today and this is the only major thing I accomplished!  So, it didn't take me the whole 8 hours to construct this board, but it did eat up the majority of my time.  I also did a little yapping with the office staff and helped one of my preggo teammates hang things.


Excuse the pic- I only had my phone with me today!  I made those palm trees probably 3 different times before they turned out decent (I'm still not overjoyed with the result, but it will have to do for now!).  The surf boards are made with leftover fabric scraps.  I really wanted a lighter color for the sand, but it wasn't going to happen for me!

Here's where I got my inspiration from- I literally copied their entire bulletin board:

So, that's it for now.  I'm beyond exhausted and my back is killing me!  Maybe a catnap would do me some good!
