Co-op Fair

After so many weeks, days and hours dedicated to my co-op board, I am finally done and I couldn't be happier! I don't think anyone understands how much work I went through! There was so much planning, sketches, supplies, money, and sleeping hours spent on this project! It was all worth it though!!! :-)


 
To be honest, at one point, I wanted to rip my board in half because it wasn't going my way at all! I couldn't achieve the right colour shades, glue wasn't sticking, things weren't standing, trying to stick and fit these individual triangles was a pain,

 
and time was running out!



It was difficult to juggle homework, work, social life, jogging and blogging at the same time! Looking back at it now, I have no idea how I managed!

 
In the end, everything fell right into place. :-)



 I think my motivation for working so hard on this was because I wanted to stand out from all the other teaching boards (2/3 of the co-op students did a teaching placement!), I wanted to represent my supervisor and I wanted people to actually enjoy their time at the co-op fair because I know I didn't when I had to visit it in the previous years! Truth be told, I actually looked at it as a bunch of kids ...standing there... who didn't want to be there as much as I did and it was a way of getting out of class...Hahaha

 
On the day of the co-op fair, all of the participating students had to be at school by 6:30 to set up their stations and prepare breakfast for the parents and supervisor! I actually only had four hours of sleep that night and I had the most uncomfortable sleep ever! I painted my nails at midnight so I had to hold them out while I slept so they could dry!@#$% Hahaha!



Here are some of my friends' stations! :-)

 
It was cool having Catherine beside me, since she was serving cake. :-)

 
My teacher located my station at the front of the entrance, so when you walk in, my board would be one of the first ones you would notice!!!! Woop, woop! :-) It was good because I was rarely standing alone. :-) When people started to arrive, I was so excited and nervous!



My friends were so sweet, they came to support me and only hung around my station! Haha :-) My daddy also came out to support me!



Are you guys ready to see my co-op board?

 
I got so many compliments and praise which totally made me forgot all about my problems! :-)

 

My supervisor was so impressed and honestly, her opinion mattered the most to me!

 
I was smiling so much that day that my lips felt numb ...like my toes! Those heels were cute but no blood was flowing!!!!

 
It made me happy that people visited my co-op board because they were genuinely interested and didn't come for the treats! Look at the inspiration for my co-op board! :-)

 
Pretty similar?! :-)

 
The co-op fair went so well, there's nothing I would change about that day! I handed out so many treats,

 
and the best feeling that day was when I got to take off those heels! Oh baby!!!

Before I end this post, I would like to say thank you to my dad, sister and brother-in-law for driving me back and forth to wal-mart to buy supplies and develop photos! I would also like to thank everyone for supporting me at the co-op fair, it really meant a lot to me!!! :-)
