Fabric. The fabric of our lives.

Happy Sunday friends! I love Sundays. Love them from the tip of my toes! Such a time to plug in and recharge. And I love me some sunday morning worship surrounded by my church family. I then love having lunch w the family and running errands w mom. And by running errands I mean target. Duh.


Today, mom and I got crazy and ventured to the local fabric store because I have decided I want to re-cover the stools I created last year (Pinterest inspired...project pictures later...I have to drive to school to get them) I wanted brighter fabric and a fresh look for a new year. (My dad, who spent many hours w this project last summer, thinks the old fabric was perfect.) 

I also searched for fabric for the curtains mom is making me this year!!!! "Wait, Cait I thought your classroom didn't have a window?" You might ask. Oh, you're correct, these will be real life curtains for my fake window!

I scoured that fabric store, looked at and touched every fabric in that place...and nothing spoke to me. See, I can't just buy ANY fabric for my windowless window curtains...it has to be perfect! That window is like my alias, my theme song, my thang. 

So, I left w out curtain fabric, but snagged some cute stool fabric and a nifty two inch hole punch :) 




I hope you're plugged in and recharging for the upcoming week! Let me leave you w some words that spoke to me today. 

Everyone has something he/she is totally crazy about, addicted to, fixated on. What if we all took that zeal we have for that thing and applied it to our faith? I mean holy moly what could be accomplished if we focused our fixation and our crazy towards The Lord! I need to work on this, because ill tell anyone who has ears about my laminator...but I shy away from talking about my faith. God blessed me and all of you w the zeal for all things teaching, lets give it back!

Love, love, love the orange fabric! I have been toying with the idea of making milk crate schools for my classroom, but I think I need to get some other projects out of the way first (like making black and white polka dot curtains for my room out of bandanas).
