Ok so I know its a lil early but there are days when you are just bored outa your mind right? Well how about we make it productive. 

I was writing down things I would need for school, then things I wanted to make/get for my locker and I had the coolest idea pop into my head. I have a ton of faux fur left over from making monster purses and I thought it would be so cool to hang it up in my locker like locker wallpaper type deals people do. The only thing is I don't know how I could be able to get it to be temporary but still stay up...I was thinking I could glue magnetic sheets to the back of it but do you think it would be able to support that weight and also do they even have magnetic sheets ive only seen stripes. 

Neways I was thinking whenever we get bored or just get in the mood to craft for school we could make different things and share with everyone what we've created.  We could do it like the one we did last year.  I'm thinking Notebook decorations, decorated pens/pencils, pencil pouches, locker decor, maybe even someone is crafty enough to make their own backpack!

What do you say? Grin

 Shocked I am starting college this fall and will need stuff for my dorm room (even though my college is 15 min away, I wouldnt give campus life up for nothing! The dorms at the college I am going to are pretty sweet and there is so much fun stuff to do!) I am so excited and feel like a super nerd because I actually want classes to begin  Roll Eyes well the fun activities and learning new things, I am so excited to go to a new school and meet new people. I just can't wait. So, would my dorm stuff count?? I will probably do some class related items too. Like a binder for my Classical Studies class. (The name of the class is "The Mythic Imagination" How cool is that???) Right now I am working, but I definately have alot of stuff planned. Like a room divider for when one wants to stay up later than the other, then I can put it up and with my sleeping mask (another project to make) I will have no problems with the light.

Oh! I also need to make atleast two message boards and some fun desk accessories. I dont have much money so I have to make just about everything  Grin My classes start in mid august so I dont really have a ton of time. Especially since I love making stuff for swaps. But I think I can do it, this may just help me get it all going.
