Warm Up With A Book!

Over the summer, I posted one of the bulletin boards I created for the children's department at the library where I work. It's definitely one of my favorite parts of my job, seeing as I get to put my craft side to good use. :) I put up this bulletin board a couple of days ago since the weather is getting chillier here and winter is fast approaching.

It's always fun trying to come up with an idea for a bulletin board and then utilizing the library's craft supplies to make it. For this bulletin board, I actually used the fire I used on the board I made over the summer (which you can view here). I like reusing creations myself or other coworkers have made because then they really get put to good use. The penguins are made from a clipart image I found online and colored with markers. I covered the background with blue paper and then added white paper on the bottom to look like snow.

Thanks so much for reading, Happy Wednesday! :)
