It's for a woman's Bible study, but there are several pictures of visual journaling. Good inspiration for several different student examples. The key thing is to get students to focus on the ideas and NOT on creating visual masterpieces. This is definitely for individual instruction for targeted students and not for whole class instruction. by leona

Before frosting, make sure your cake is shorter than a kit-kat bar, if not trim some off the top to leave room for the M’s. Frost and take a bunch of kit-kat bars (about 4 large packages), cut or gently break each bar into two sections. Place the bars on the cake, gently pushing into the frosting. Tie with a ribbon and fill the center with M’s (about 1 large bag).  This cant be good. by Small Flower

History
This sewing structure is called 3-up (or 3-on) sewing & was used to save time & materials & to prevent excess swelling of the spine caused by thread. Instead of thread going through the entire length of each gathering, here 3 gatherings are sewn at a time, the thread moving from one to the next as it progresses along the spine. This is a relatively unstable sewing structure as each gathering is only partially attached, allowing a lot of movement by helena

Strawberry Freezer Jam Recipe  2 pints strawberries, or enough to make  2 cups crushed strawberries  1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice  4 cups granulated sugar  1(3 ounce) envelope Certo  This recipe makes 4 cups, so wash and rinse 2-4 jars, depending on what size you decide to you.  This is freezer jam, so wash the jars in hot soapy water, and rinsed in hot clean water.  Give the berries a rinse and remove the stems. Mash the berries by hand in a large bowl with a potato masher. It is nice to have texture to the berries.  Measure exactly 2 cups of strawberries into a large bowl along with the sugar and stir together. Once you the two well mixed, let stand for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.  While the mixture is sitting take a small bowl or glass measuring cup and stir the Certo pectin into the lemon juice.  Once you have waiting the required 10 minutes for the berry/sugar mixture, stir in the pectin mixture with a wooden spoon or spatula.  You will need to stir for about 4 minutes until the sugar is completely dissolved and you see no grains of sugar left behind other than a bit that may be clinging to the side of the bowl.  Ladle the jam into the clean jars and leave 1/2 space at the top of each jar.  This is very important as the jam will expand when it freezes. Put a lid on each jar and leave the jam at room temperature for 24 hours to set.  Store in the freezer. This jam is good for a year. When you want to eat a jar, just transfer to the refrigerator to thaw and store any uneaten jam in the refrigerator. Good for about 3 weeks. by kandersen

For the crepe paper, all you need is a sewing machine, crepe paper, and thread.  Set your sewing machine to the highest tension you can go, mine goes to 5. It works great!  Stitch a straight line down the middle and watch it ruffle!! If you’d like more ruffles (who doesn’t?) gently and loosely hold the spool of thread on top of the sewing machine as you go. That’s it!! Isn’t that easy? I by julianne
