About Me

I am a high school English teacher by day, and a lover of crafting by night/weekend.  I absolutely love my job, and I adore crafting.  This is where I like to share my crafty projects and general musings, so I hope you enjoy!

  1. Hi, i saw your dictionary pencils on etsy.com, and i was wondering if you’d ever consider making pencils like that for the novel The Great Gatsby? If so, just email me back and let me know, because I’d be more than happy to purchase some!

  2. Hello. I just came across you other blog tonight, and I am so glad you added a link to your new blog. I would have to agree with you, the layout, colors, and design is much more appealing. I saw a comment that you had left on Sometimes Sweet (http://sometimessweet.blogspot.com/2010/01/my-life-as-english-teacher-how-i-got.html) about being a high school teacher and that is how I found you.

    You are so creative, I love the costumes you made and wore to school. I am sure your students loved them as well. After graduation, I too will teach secondary English and, I am curious if I could get some ideas/suggestions/tips on fun ways to decorate a classroom? If you had a photo of your classroom, that you did not mind sharing with us, that would be amazing.

    I like the idea of old world charm/ travel theme. I would like to have an old typewriter, books, postcards, etc. What do you think? I want to make it a warm and inviting place for both my students and myself.

    Keep up the great post, and creative projects. You have inspired me to get out my dusty sewing machine and create something new.

    Be well, do good work, and keep in touch.

  3. I just want to tell you that I think your pencils wrapped with pages from great books are simple, genius, and so wonderful!

  4. Don’t ask me how I got here, but it was fun to stumble upon an old friends blog by accident and find that she had a baby this year! My wife Steph and I just had our first in March as well, so it’s nice to relate to the excitement I see in your posts Mariko!
