An AMAZING back to school "supplies cake"! It would take a lot of work, but as a teacher, this is the ULTIMATE gift!!!
Ursula Make-up. This is pretty amazing, and, after I watched that transformation, I kind of fell in love with this idea... It would take a lot of make-up purchases to make this happen, though
This could be a great classroom job chart idea. It is creative and will draw the attention of the students. I can't think of any reasons as to why this would be a bad idea. Yes, it would take time, but if done right then you can use it for a long time.
Making kimchi is incredibly easy - just a matter of chopping veggies, really. But this fermented veggie mix is so good for you!
Things That Are Awesome

Don’t have a lot of space for a kitchen table but would love the option of a sit-down meal from time to time? This clever picture table design is a beautiful solution — and one you could certainly do yourself.
No idea who drew this but it reminded me a lot of Asuna
I tried this tonight. It was super simple. It was just okay but I added frozen vegetables. I think it would have been better to make a side of veggies and keep the recipe as is.
I love the idea of a nude/natural look with a pop of color. This is more intense than I would do but it is cool.
I love this. It must take a lot of time but I'd love to try it one day.
This PowerPoint Presentation explains the origin of rhetoric, the three separate concepts of rhetoric, and present fallacies of rhetoric in a way that students can see and understand. There are not a lot of graphics in this PowerPoint, but it is straightforward and to the point. In a Secondary English class, this presentation would take about 20-30 minutes. It is a great way to explain Sophocles and as a prelude to Frankenstein.
This is beautiful, BUT a baby would need a whole lot of head to pull this off
Products I Lovey
Cheese reindeer! That is a very clever idea! Simple enough to make, you could have all the parts in separate bowls and let the kids make it for themselves. This would also be a fun healthy snack to take to one of the many Christmas party functions you will no doubt be invited to over the silly season. Have fun- D.I.Y Mum.
Watermelon hammocks? Would have never thought of this, but it seems like a great idea for growing the vines vertically and keeping the melons off the ground - probably cuts down on a lot of rotting, too.
In the Garden
Climate-Friendly Sunken Pool Converts into Radiant Floor Here’s a truly glamorous idea for a pool. A sinking pool! The apparently permanent stone floor in this room literally slowly drops to reveal the pool underneath. In the raised position, you can walk on the same surface radiantly warmed from beneath. And of course, having the swimming pool convert itself into a floor makes it child-friendly too: this is not a pool that a child can fall into. Once it is sunken it looks like any other indoor pool – as permanent as you could possibly want. You could design this so that it remains as just a shallow decorative pool when not in use, one that is only an inch or two deep. But the best thing about this idea is that it would also make keeping the pool warm a cinch. The exposed surface of pools give off heat at a great rate and take a lot of energy to reheat. But this one is only exposed to heat evaporation when you swim in it. This could make this extremely glamorous design also a very climate-friendly one as well. That’s because the energy expended to keep pools toasty make your swimming pool the worst carbon hog: worse even than you driving that SUV. Radiant floors or the use of thermal mass is climate-friendly design because of the slow release of warmth – reducing energy needs for heating. The super-rich with luxury housing do the most harm to the planet with their luxury high energy use architecture. So, encouraging their architects to incorporate eco design ideas like thermal mass/radiant floors into luxury architecture is a way to reduce their normally VERY heavy carbon footprint. But of course the energy consumption would depend on how much energy is expended to raise and lower the floor. Perhaps that can be engineered to be a clever energy efficient design… or perhaps not. It is designed in Belgium – if you want to ask and see, or make a suggestion on how that could be achieved.
Hmm...I would have to drink A LOT of wine, but it might be worth it.
Not sure if I would want to do this.. but it sure is a cool idea!! LOL @April Owens
Things I Like
Hidden Pantry Door: In my dream home, even the butler's pantry would be a place I would want to spend time in. This is one is sooo clever because no one needs to even know about it. But who would keep it a secret? Simply beautiful. The detail on the cabinets allow the beauty and the organization of the china to show.
I like the idea of 3-D, physical and visual representations of habitats. Creating this kind of rainforest diorama would take a lot of investigation and trial and error to make it work. I think this would require critical thinking and many cross-content skills to construct.
Getting this done. It looks like a lot of layers but hopefully it will take off some weight to my long straight across hair cut.
This is most like what the desk side of the foyer would look like. I like it a lot.
Sesame Shrimp and Asparagus Stir Fry - very simple to make, adds a big serving of veggies, and is much lower in fat and calories than take-out!
I think this would be a great activity for the kids to learn. its hands on giving them a feel of how it supposes to be written and sight for them to remember. Although dealing with macaroni can be messy and you would have to but a lot, but it is a great activity
