A Bunny to Light the Way...

Here's a fun and creative bunny lantern that I saw at a garden and home interiors shop in La Center Washington. It's amazing how creative artists can be. Someone had to actually think of this idea and then bring it into life as a real object. I am always amazed by the creativity of the human race to come up with beautiful, fun, funky, strange useful objects.

Now, I have been busy too but most of my creativity has been in the area of space planning and restructuring of the computer lab in the library at the middle school I work at. I have been working on a space plan that will allow the teachers to monitor the computers more easily, teach the students more efficiently and for the students to stay on task!

We went from L shaped tables that only had a couple ways of being set up in the space available to rectangular tables that are more logical in the way they are laid out. It is amazing! after only a week and the lab area being used almost every period of the day the library feels quieter and more like a real teaching and learning environment! People have been commenting on how much more focused the students are...

We'll see how long this lasts!

More creative stuff--I've been doodling little cards and sewing up cute little felt critters and such in to pins. I may just have to get an online sales account someplace so I don't drown in felty cuteness! I have sold 3 of the original 4 Recycled coffee bean bag totes and have been asked to do some more to replenish the stock at the Nor'West Coffee shop. Yeah! very exciting if I do say so my self. :)

I'll get more photos uploaded in a few days! As soon as I take some of the cute felt stuff. :)
