Crafty Classroom Décor #1

School is in full swing!  Most of you can probably tell that by my inconsistent post lately.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!  This week was a little more than crazy!  We had a regular school day and then we met with parents at night for parent-teacher conferences.  So I had a couple of long days and late nights. 

It takes Kindergarteners a little while longer to adjust and for us to really get into the swing of things.  (Thus resulting in one TIRED teacher!)  So hopefully, I will be a little more consistent here on the blog within the next month.

I talk about my classroom…. so I thought I would show you around!  I also thought I would show you some crafty classroom décor! 

Here are some fun, cute flower pots that I painted several years ago.  These were painted with acrylic paint.  My pens and scissors have had a happy home now for several years!  I could see this being a cute teacher gift.  I LOVE FUN PENS!  So paint a cute pot and fill it with some fun and colorful pens!

In this picture you can see the rocks that I added to the larger flower pot.   It just looks safer if the points of my scissors are stuck down in the rocks.

This concludes the first post of Craft Classroom Décor!

Stay tuned for the second post!

GIVEAWAY!! My Memories Digital Scrapbooking

I am so excited!!   I am doing my first giveaway!!!  WOO HOO!!!

I was super excited when contacted me and asked my to do a review of their Digital Scrapbooking software!

I have had tons of fun playing around with the My Memories software this week!  This Digital Scrapbooking software is so versatile!  You can have fun creating and printing digital scrapbook pages, photo books, cards, calendars, gift tags and making videos!  Really, I have not begun to mention the endless possibilities that MyMemories Suite software has to offer! 

With MyMemories you can use their already designed scrapbooking templates or you can choose to design your own!  I played around with both methods and found them both user friendly.  I loved using the fun backgrounds and the cute embellishments to add spice and interest to my pages!  (I am already thinking I could make some really cute class Christmas card for a parent gift at Christmas time!)

Here is a calendar that I made!  This was not a pre-designed template. First, I choose a background and then I downloaded the FREE calendar template from  (Did I mention that they have a totally awesome FREE download section…with AMAZING templates and EXTRA pre-designed scrapbooking layouts?!?!?!)  After placing the calendar on my background; I played around with the word art, fonts and embellishments.  There really are endless possibilities!

My October calendar. 


Here is a fun gift tag template that I will definitely be using at Christmas time!  This gives you the option of adding little circle or square pictures to your tags!  So fun and festive!

Girlie Travel Pillow

It is tough traveling with little ones.  I really hate turning around and seeing them fall asleep in their car seats.  Their heads and necks bobbing all over the place.  My 6 year old is now in a booster seat, so I bought him a neck pillow a couple of months ago.  Of course, my 3 year old thought she just had to have one because her bubba did! 

So, I thought…I can so throw one of those together!  Here is how it goes!!

1.) I used some fleece that I had lying around.  I just free-handed a pattern out of a piece of freezer paper.  I knew what shape and how wide I wanted it.

2.) Cut it out with the insides of your material together. 

3.) You will then sew all the way around it, leaving a 2-3 inch opening.

4.) Turn your pillow casing inside out and stuff.  I used fiber fill to fill my pillow.

5.) Lastly, sew your opening closed.  I just slip-stitched the opening closed.

Girlie Neck Pillow

There you have it!!!  A cute and girlie travel neck pillow!

My daughter was thrilled to have a pillow just like your brother!

Yellow Day

In Kindergarten, the first two weeks we have all of the kids dress in the color of the day.  Each day of the week is a different color!  I always try to participate but find myself lacking certain colors.  This year I had a hard time with the colors yellow and orange.  I guess those are just NOT my colors!  So “yellow day” came and no yellow.  (I really wish I were one of those people that planned ahead, but I am usually just not.)  I finally decided that I would throw together one of these cute little t-shirt scarves that have been all over blog land.  Like as in..I decided to throw it together around 6:00 that morning!(Umm yes, running around trying to make a yellow scarf before leaving to go to school at 7:00!)  I did get to school on time and with a very cute and “yellow” accessory! 

Here ya’ go!  This is what I wore on “Yellow Day.”



I actually had fun making it!  The flower took longer than anything. (Basically, just cutting out all of those petals!)  I would definitely recommend making a few of these to accessorize with!  Here is the tutorial that I used for the flower!

Fun, Simple and CUTE!
