Easy & Quick Scarf Storage

My momma has an obsession really likes scarves.  But, she wasn't such a fan of how she had been keeping them.  So we came up with something quick, easy, and effective. 

All you need is a hanger, hot glue, yarn, a small piece of sandpaper, extra shower curtain rings, and a love for scarves!

See how simply putting them on the shower rings then hanger lets them slip and slide around to the sides?  Totally unstable and the hanger is being pulled taught.  Not very sturdy.  

We had to run sandpaper over the hanger so the hot glue wouldn't peel right off the plastic.

Put hot glue on the top and bottom of the hanger--feel free to put a little extra on the sides if you would like. 

Wrap around as much yarn as you would like.  Cover the whole thing, or, like we did, a few strands at a time spaced apart. 

Click on the shower rings, and add your scarves.  Our scarves were actually already on the rings, but either way works. 

See how pretty that looks?  And it slides right into the closet with the coats (or, if you prefer, your clothes). 

And it barely takes up any room! 

Now take 10 minutes and fix up your box of scarves (:

For the rest of the school year...

I am now employed full-time (: 

I had an interview this morning and got the call less than an hour later.  It's still a sub job, not a contract job, so no benefits or continuation for next year--but it's just what I need!  

I won't have my own classroom, but I'll be working with 3rd-5th grade Title I students (for more on that see this)--basically the at-risk and low-preforming students.  I've worked with special education a bit, but this will definitely be a fabulous experience.  

P.S. I made this skirt...tutorial soon? I have fabric for another already.  

I start on Monday!  Wish me luck (:

My Life List

I've never really liked the sound of a "Bucket List," just a little too morbid for me.  I prefer to think of it as a Life List.  This is my life and these are the things I want to do while I'm living it.  

Some of the things on my list I've already completed (yea!) and I'm going to use this blog as a place to document the list and when I complete things.  If you want to follow along I promise I won't make it totally boring.  If not, just skip over these posts.  

There will be a list as a new tab under my header to keep the list as well as link to all of the future posts about completions.  

If you want to check out my list (warning: it's long), check out my new tab up top! 

Semi-related, here's my twenty-thirteen goals (I'm not one for resolutions)
I'm always adding to the list and love hearing what's on your lists or what you'd love to do.  Let me know!

I'm Back.

Has it really been since October? Hope you all had magical Christmas' and wonderful New Years.  

My season was incredibly crazy.  Subbing 3-4 days a week, tutoring 2 days a week. Working almost every single night, sometimes until 1am before subbing the next day.  I barely had time to breathe, but I still found time to enjoy my favorite season (: 

Life has slowed.  School just started again, so there aren't a lot of sub positions yet (just some lined up in the future) and work is really slow, half the hours I did have.  So I'm going to soak up the extra time while I can.  

The good news is, I'm back! 

Tell me your favorite part(s) of your holiday, I want to hear all about it.

Happy Halloween

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Halloween! 

 My family's favorite pumpkin patch is...

...a small side-of-the-road stop. I love that people still believe in honesty, refreshing. 

 This time, they were bringing more out on this awesome old tractor.  Of course...

 ...we asked for a picture, and they told us to get on it! No wonder we love their little patch. 

My instagramed version. 

My plans for the night consist of trying to play card games with boyfriend while being interrupted by cute trick-or-treaters every few minutes (: Can't wait! 

What are your Halloween plans?
