**Think Out Loud ~ #2 ~ On Volunteering**
As many of you know, I have an addiction. I'm addicted to books in both digital and paper formats. But what you may not know is my addiction to paper extends beyond books. ;) I'm a papercrafter, too. So when the opportunity to create locker decorations for the high school band came along, I naturally volunteered. I love creating stuff and I had a great idea for a decoration that went along with this year's show theme. It was simple...easy!
If anyone see me raising my hand to volunteer for making decorations for the entire band again, slap my hand the hell down!! LOL
I like the end product but it was a lot of work.
And now you know what I've been busy doing this week. ;)

That's really awesome, Brandee! It looks really good, you're very talented :) I'm sure all the students appreciated your hard work :)ReplyDelete
What instrument do your kids play? I'm curious and want to know more:)
Have a wonderful day!

Thanks, Lexxie! They were really simple - the theme is The Night Sky - but mass producing them was just more work than I'd thought it would be. :)ReplyDelete
My oldest daughter plays alto saxophone in the marching band. (which is what these were for) She also plays alto sax, baritone sax, clarinet and piano. She's in jazz band and concert band as well as marching band.
My younger daughter is also in the high school marching band although she's not in high school yet. She is a member of color guard - she say she throws weapons. :) They are the flags, rifles and sabres on the field - what she says makes the band look pretty. :) She plays violin and piano and is in the middle school orchestra.
My son is not in marching band...yet. He is in band at the middle school though. He's a percussionist - and is trying to pick up the trumpet as well. Oh, he plays piano too. Anyway, both he and my hubs are drummers so you can imagine the noise level at the dinner table when they're tapping a beat on the table while eating. LOL
There you go - everything you wanted to know and more! LOL Are there any musicians in your family?? :)
Hope you've had a thrilling Thursday, Lexxie!
They look really good.. Not sure I could do anything like that.. lol. Luckily my girl is only six and in first grade right now. Also, no interest in instruments yet.ReplyDelete
Thanks! And you better get ready...she may not be a musician, but I bet there'll be something you'll have to do crafts for! ;)Delete
Oh wow Brandee! Those are fantastic! Great job gal!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Think! It was fun - just very time consuming. :)Delete
LOL I don't think I'll be able to be that crafty even if I'm an art graduate. But it's all great for looking good and crafty in a band. :)ReplyDelete
We did not cover this other side of your paper addiction over lunch. I am your opposite. Please do not even look my way when seeking volunteers for crafty projects. I'm lame. My brain shuts off. Make me tutor the kids at math. I'll do that. I do not cut straight. My ability to accurately measure is for shit. Really, I'm an asymmetry type of girl out of necessity. I love the decorations. The silver tails make them look like shooting stars. You're too cool.ReplyDelete
LOL We make quite a pair - I can't teach much math...my brain shuts off. LOL And I like symmetry, too. ;) LOL Thanks, Robyn!Delete
This is the first time I'm visiting your blog :)
Great job with the decorations! I must confess I'm terrible when it comes to crafting.
and it's nice to discover another cool book blog :)
Hi Rosa, and thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you'll come by often. :) And thanks for the compliment on my decorations...I have to admit I took on more than I was anticipating. ;) But it was fun!Delete
