|Not my shoes. Wish they were.|
Anyhow... This will be the first of a couple of conference posts, looking back on a whirlwind long weekend. I represent our region on the state board of trustees, so my trip began with a board meeting Thursday night, prior to the official Friday morning opening of the conference.
Last year, it was my idea to institute a table that I named 'Bling Your Badge'. With a marvelous supply of materials donated by Nasco and School Specialty (thank you!!!!), it was a great success that we repeated this year. Everyone jumped at the chance to spend a few idle moments with a hot glue gun and wiggle eyes, jewels, shiny buttons, patterned foam, pipe cleaners, ribbon, pompoms, and more. Here's a couple of name tag photos, starting with my own two-sided badge.
|Buttons! Super name badge!|
|Happy Sheetrock carvers!|

Two hands-on workshops that were scheduled concurrently with my workshops, but that I would have loved to attended: Tree Houses with Recycled Materials, and 3-D Weaving. But from talking to people, and looking at their results, I think I should be able to figure them out.
