Add Craft Lady to my list of many talents

Tomorrow, we’re doing fun Friday of activities at school. It’s a fund-raiser for sorely needed funds to spend on student and staff incentives. Over half of our students have paid the $10 fee to participate in the glow party, color run, dance, robots, bubbles, and yes CRAFTS.

I was tasked with finding craft activities that could be done at little or no cost to the school. Well, I’ve certainly taken advantage of the opportunity offload my slime supplies, Perler bead and yarn collections. I planned slime for 475 kids, pom pom making for 100 kids, melty beads for 100 kids and a butterfly paper plate craft for 150 kids. Everything except the grade level slime kits is prepped. I merely need to portion out the classroom kits once the final numbers are in tomorrow morning.

And those sewing machines I was gifted? The Janome is at school, the Kenmore with me and the other two were deemed “landfill” by my sewing machine repair person. I’m kinda bummed about the vintage White machine, but it’s not worth it to repair, especially given the previous repair slips I found and shared with my friend. I’ll keep the accessories and list the machine as a parts only machine on eBay.
