Classroom Banners

Hello! I promise I'm still here. I didn't fall of the face of the earth. I spent last week in my classroom!!  :D :D Which alternatively means I was a terrible blogger!

The teacher I will be working with also hung out with me as we moved furniture and sorted through 6 filing cabinets of stuff. I think it's safe to say, "Back to school is in full swing!" I'll share some photos later this week!

I am always seeing ideas on Pinterest and blogs of classrooms and I feel like I'm behind on setting things up and getting everything ready. Then this week and next week is teacher training / in service. Does anyone else feel behind and we haven't even really started?  I keep worrying I'm going to mess up the first day disastrously! (I've had nightmares. In this case, I hope dreams/nightmares don't come true.) My cousin who teaches Jr. High Science assured me you will never feel 'ready.' She is starting her 9th year and she says, "you never feel 100% ready no matter how much planning & prep you do.  Work on what you can get done and don't stress about the rest." I thought that was pretty good advice! So I decided to make something fun for Make it Monday instead of trying to plan something I'm not 100% sure I will be able to use.

Currently...Saturday Snapshots

I love linky blog posts...don't you? They are enjoyable and informative! :) Today I'm sharing my August currently from Oh' Boy 4th grade and also sharing some snapshots from this week with Run! Miss Nelson's got the camera! 

This week I made a new desktop background! 

I also updated my blog! :)  Check out the before & after!

 I was also crazy busy moving around my craft room, organizing all my notes, books, and papers from college and the daycare I used to work at.

I also created these super cute Pinterest board covers! Find out how you can download your own!

 Lastly, today I will be photographing a wedding! I'm super excited, this will be my 4th wedding. I also booked my 5th wedding for October! :D I love being a photographer.

Now for my August Currently:

Listening to my dog, Olive & my parents' dog, Haunse play and wrestle on the couch! 
I'm loving summer-it's so relaxing! 
I'm thinking about the wedding I will be photographing this evening. this will be my 4th wedding! 
I'm wanting a few more days before I have to begin working on stuff at school. 
I am in NEED of a hair cut. It's too hot to have hair grow below your shoulders. 
3 things for b2s: Sticky notes, calendar / planner & white out!

DIY Pinterest Board Covers

Hello teachers!! It has been a few days since I've posted anything. I have been busy! I switched my craft room around and it's taken me almost the whole week to purge stuff from other teachers, college, and HIGH SCHOOL!! (You know...the stuff you love, but never touch.) I am very proud of myself. I donated 4 boxes & 1 bag full of stuff to goodwill. I also threw out 3 bags of PAPERS! I am a hoarder when it comes to collecting papers.  Then it hit me....I have GOOGLE! :) It's more efficient to use Google than try to remember and find what I took notes on or have copied 2 years ago. Ok, enough about my hoarding, onto the real meat of the post...
