Dollar Tree Fun!!

So if you are anything like me you LOVE finding amazing things at a VERY low price. Of course one of my favorite places is the Dollar Tree. I love a place you can get so many different types of items for such a cheap price. I have found at times (although rare) that similar items can be found else where for a better maybe Walmart or Target.

I recently found a great blog which you may already know about. Here is the link I can't stay away! I haven't had a chance to start any of the projects but, can't wait to get into some of them.
Here are a few of my favorites so far..., So cool and I want one!

I really want one of these for my classroom....

And here is one that every little girl would love...

When I make something I will post a tutorial...looking forward to being creative = )

So as you can see wow! LOVE IT! Got to check it out if you like to make crafts and save money.... Lots more I didn't post there.


So the school year has begun and I find myself having almost no time for this blog. I don't like when that happens. This school year has been very different this year so far. For one, I am now a 1st grade teacher and I am working with a new team. I was so blessed and lucky to work with my Kindergarten team last year. Each and everyone of them taught me so much about teaching and team work. I hope I bring that to my new team and that we get to know each other just as well.

I do have some familiar faces in my room again. It is really nice to have a few of my old students from last year. I am learning every day what first graders are like and what needs they have. I am excited to watch them grow this year. It is just a rough beginning. But, here I go!!

Found a Great Blog with amazing Kids stuff!!

So as I was browsing the Internet last night I found this great blog. Chez Beeper Bebe has some really cute things such as projects, etsy and recipes. I decided to click on the link to "Cool Kiddo Things". I immediately fell in love. Not only was I able to make my own superhero (and boy was she amazing!!) but, there were so many different sites listed that my kids loved. You can print out vintage paper dolls, paint, read about arts and crafts and many many more options. I highly recommend! Here is a link. Check it out! And that is not an order its a demand ; )

Way too long!

It feels like an eternity since I have blogged! This will not be a very long post but, I will be posting soon with pictures and stories of our trips to Ireland (!!!) and New Jersey. Tons of fun on both parts but, when we returned too much was going on. So much actually that I have not had enough time to blog. I am now a 1st grade teacher, not a kindergarten one any more. Not the most happy however, I am excited to work with my new team and to have some new experiences. This is how we grow and learn right? I may even get some of my old kiddo's back. That would be great! lol. Well maybe...

While we are talking kids, Kenna and Aidan are good. I am ready for them to head back to school. They were spoiled rotten on vacation and need a little reality check. Kenna is heading into 3rd grade! Can't believe she is half way through elementary school and Aidan is going to be a kindergartener! WOW! My baby boy is also growing up. They are driving each other CRAZY!! In return me and their father as well. I know they will occasionally fight but, my goodness lately it is like cats and dogs in this house. I will soon be posting some of my favorite crafts and ideas that I have worked on all summer. Gosh I have missed blogging = )
