Mini-books

I love mini-books.  Here are a few that I made last year.

Tribeca Film Festival : In May of 2007, Hung’s film Going Home screened at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC.  Since I’m his biggest fan, he flew me to New York for the week and we partied like superstars.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun : Each summer, my girlfriends and I take a trip to Yosemite.  In 2008, Lisa joined us in the adventure.  The most memorable event of that trip was our attempt to climb Half Dome.  Here’s a look at our adventure …

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun : In May of 2009, I took two students on a trip of a lifetime.  We went to the Houston Space Center where the girls presented their research on potassium alum crystals to NASA engineers and other NES students.

Deep Freeze : In November 0f 2009, my students made ice cream in the classroom.  The ice cream lab is by far the most popular lab in 8th grade (well, next to eyeballs).

    @kristen, Hey, I say “attempted” because we didn’t make it to the top. We made it to the granite rock and climbed the steep granite steps. By then we were so exhausted and scared, we decided to turn around. We did the 16 mile hike though — just could not muster the strength, courage and energy to get to the top.

    @autumn, One day I would love to take a trip to USA and California would be high on my list. Its a great shame I didn’t have the money to do it a month or so ago, the exchange rate was awesome!!

  4. Love a glimpse of your mini’s! They inspire me! Especially love the different shapes, sizes and tags you include, and the peek- a-boo holes.
    Say, you ARE getting quite a following, aren’t you? At least I can say that I remember when (before you became famous!) XO LA

    @Emily Turkalj, I’m conducting some tests on my blog — like checking to see if you get notified of my reply. After struggling with it for a few days, I think I’ve finally got it! :) Let me know if you get this.
