Fireplace Makeover

Brick is the most common fireplace material, but that doesn’t mean yours needs to be boring and ordinary. I’m a Craft-Doing, Coffee-Drinking, Lover of Animals, Decorating, Travel, Organizing, Painting, and Remodeling. Many people prefer their fireplaces to be homely and comforting while others prefer a more modern, contemporary looking fireplace, but your remodeling style will depend on the existing decor in the room in which the fireplace is and of course, you own personal style.

After watching Brainpop, we created this anchor chart to show what a contraction was and to also list examples. But from midnight until 1-ish I was needing to squeeze Jake’s hand during the contractions and finally by 1:50am, I asked him to call Aly.
