Clock make over.

Here’s my finished clock, sorry for the glare.  However, there are some issues with it *sigh*  I painted it with chalkboard paint that doesn’t seem to be acting very chalkboardy.  In certain light you can see the erased writing, somehow it’s still marking the clock.  Also, I used painters tape to cover the hands while I sprayed the clock, it didn’t seem wise to try and remove them and the clock wasn’t cooperating so I left them.  In peeling off the tape the hands got unhappy.  By unhappy I mean they actually popped off and I had to stick them back on.   They seem wobbily now.  I didn’t put a battery in yet but I doubt it will keep time properly.  When I tried to move the hands to figure out the button positioning it seemed to be placing the hours a little uneven and wonky.  I stuck the buttons on with large glue dots.

It’s still nice to look at though.  Maybe I’ll just have it say ‘time to craft’ forever.

Yet another Style School project.

Finished this today, so it’s good to know that even though I’m in my jammies I’ve done something productive.   I couldn’t find the assigned ‘6 clip boards of the same size’  but I thought I’d start with an idea/need I had.  So here’s my ‘To do’ board, which I hope helps me to accomplish some things and get them to dones.

I stuck the buttons on with glue dots.  I like the idea of making them into little bullets, and I thought that having 5 would be manageable and not too overwhelming for goals

The neat thing about being a teacher is you have neat things like stickers or blackboard markers already!  So I can use them on my cute new little clip board.  However, a down side to being a teacher is after you take a year off on maternity leave you have no idea where most of your teaching stuff is.
