Celebrate the Small Things: Repurposing the A-Z

Well, I'm coming to the end of the week rather exhausted but pleased with myself. I completed an aviation display for our airport's annual Desert Aire Fly-In this coming weekend.


Pilots will be flying in from all over to have breakfast, show off their planes to the community, and talk about aviation. Some Fly-Ins are huge, but being a small community, ours will be held in one hangar, large enough for a small crowd and three or so displays. And of course, there will be plenty to see on the tarmac with all the planes. The kids love seeing the planes.


The display looks great. I made a collage of photos on poster board of all the "Pioneer Women in Aviation" pilots from the 2016 April A-Z, and copied the blog posts into two notebooks. Love that I could repurpose my favorite A-Z theme thus far. It's something I've always wanted to do.





Enjoy the weekend!

    1. Thanks, Hilary. Lots yet to do. A group of us will be decorating this afternoon. Planning for this event begins as early as Feb. My neighbor is doing an excellent job chairing the event.

    1. Oh, absolutely! Love Bessie's story and how she had to travel to France to pursue her interest in flying.

    1. Thanks. Just learned the double stick tape isn't working. Looks like I'll be pasting photos as they fall, but still love the results :)
