UPDATE: The puzzle is complete and is now up. Thank you to everyone that helped out!
This past Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday was puzzle decorating in my suite. This is a blank puzzle that can be decorated however you want. I thought it would be a cool idea to have my residents decorate the puzzle pieces and then put it up on the wing to show how everyone is different but a lot of people have similarities. I can’t wait to finish the puzzle and put it up. Thank you to the 5 people that stopped by and decorated a puzzle piece. Now I just have to finish decorating the rest of the 48 pieces.
This board is entitled Think Before You Speak and is about using inclusive language. It contains information on what inclusive language is and examples of inclusive and exclusive language. It also contains words and phrases that should be avoided. The phrases that are listed contain a reason why you shouldn’t say it. Always remember that you don’t know everyone’s story so it is important to use inclusive language!
I have put up a new bulletin board on the wall of the wing. This board matches the dress door decs that I made and contains a variety of Breast Cancer facts. I would suggest reading the facts because a lot of the information I didn’t know and it surprised me. Breast Cancer is a serious thing and I hope that one day we will find a cure for it.
This last week was Homecoming and Southwest’s theme was Southwest Safari. Our house decs turned out really cool and I think the judges liked them. Walking into the room you felt like you were surrounded by friendly animals of all different groups just like here in Southwest. I want to thank everybody that came down to help; I couldn’t have done it without you.
To honor Breast Cancer Awareness month, I made pink dresses. These dresses are made out of folded paper doilies and hearts that were punched out of cardstock. I found the idea for these on Pinterest and knew I had to make them. They are in honor of all of those fighting breast cancer right now and those that are survivors. Be on the lookout for a matching bulletin board later this month.
There is a new board up on the wing. I decided to do this board Halloween themed and have it contain some spooky facts. The facts that I found were very interesting and some were surprising. I decided to include some spooky houses, bats, witches, ghosts, and of course some halloween eyes in place of the O’s in the title. Be sure to check it out and see how many of the facts you already knew.
There is a new elevator bay bulletin board up. This board has about 20 different free but useful apps. These apps include everything from video editing to password keepers (we know it’s sometimes hard to remember all of those) and are available for your phone and your computer. We have also included a space to recommend other apps that are not already up there. Be sure to check out this cool board and find out what apps you need in your life!
