Ah, Summer....

Still one more month of SUMMER VACATION...... I love to sleep late, shop anytime I want and just have a chance to regroup.  To my husband summer vacation is his worst nightmare.  He is constantly telling me, "Not everyone has off all summer," "What time are you coming to bed?"  "How much stuff did you buy?"

Last week, I went out for a fresh cup of ice coffee, a bag of dog food and a bag of Pirates Booty.  (The Pirate Booty was for him, as an I'm sorry for coming to bed at 1:45 am and woke you up.)  Well that small quick trip to the store turned into this....

  A new year, needs new bins! Out with no matching and yucky baskets


My brother-in-law and sister-in-law teach high school they don't do chevron and fun baskets.  So I made them these NEON fun table numbers and number circles.  My sister-in-law is going to have her students use them on their science lab supply boxes.  Bright and fun!  

Thank you for making it all the way down to the end of my novel.  I am making these BRIGHT NEON numbers free until   2:45 E.S.T Until 6 pm E.S.T   
Please leave me some love so I know you enjoyed it!  :) 

More Polka Dot Cuteness...

 If you haven't seen Whimsy Clips you must get moving over there.  She is AMAZING!  Her attention to detail in the illustrations are exact. 

 My next door neighbor was having a party and asked me if I could make her table numbers.  I whipped these up for her.  She was so shocked that I didn't just do the printed number in a picture frame idea. "These are beautiful, you should sell them!" she squealed.  So I took her advice, I thought they would great for a classroom theme!  So here they are.  I included 5 different color accents, all on a black and white polka dot background.

I Heart Polka Dots.  Always have and always will.  

Bright, Sweet, Polka Dots!

My nephew just turned 5 and will be heading to kindergarten in September.  I asked him what he thinks his classroom will look like.  His response, "A Candy Store! With so many things to pick!" 
So I created this Sweet Candy Classroom set.  
When I emailed my sister-in-law a picture of my work to show him.  He told me it looks like cotton candy!

On a side note, my pile of school supply swag is currently being hidden from my husband.  But I am slowly taking pictures of it all to share with you.     
What have you been doing? 

500 Friends! Five minutes to celebrate!

Thank you friends for all the TpT love.  Please be sure to follow my Facebook page for the Flash Freebie tonight at 5pm EST and also a 5 hour sale in my TpT store. 

I am busy sleeping, reading, enjoying my friends, creating and just happy to be on summer vacation.  Looking forward to my trip to Italy in August.   Here in NY it is 98degrees.  ( I sure wish that Nick Lachey and his group were here to keep me cool.)

Happy Summer.  See you at 5pm! 

My 3 favorite words.. Chalkboard, Chevron, Dots.

I now have somewhat of a feeling as to how a DJ feels at a party.  Requests are nice to get, and it's so hard to say no!  As it turns out this summer, I am taking requests from all the teachers I've worked with and also some very sweet supporters of my little TpT store.

What started out as a personalized good-bye gift from me to my student teacher,  has turned into chevron, chalkboard and polka dot heaven!  Since officially starting summer vacation on June 27, I have created word walls and alphabet charts of all styles, all colors!  I even printed them out on card stock and laminated them for a teacher who is on a medical leave.  ** She is on her own to cut them out ;) ** 

Funny thing, is my husband doesn't seem to get it. Actually, he  thinks I'm still working on the same product.  He walked pasted me last week and said, "Geez, You're still doing that!  Maybe you should begin something else on that to-do list!"  Shows how little he knows!

So these are the sets.  I am talking a break for now to do the other things on that to-do list.

I never actually got started with the whole Candy Crush Craze.  But these cards made me rethink it!  I will add it to the bottom of my to-do list!

These are REVERSED Black and White Polka Dot Word Wall Words. 

 I believe when something/someone is good to you, they should be rewarded.   MY PRINTER has been VERY good to me.  So good that I decided to make polka dots with less black.  The printer thanks me.  Here is the link to my printer.  I love it so much and it never lets me down.   The price is an investment, but it saves me time and money.  I have had going on the 3rd summer and I think I refilled the ink two times.  You can check it out here. 

Everything needs to match so here are the alphabet posters. 

One friend was looking for color, so she got chevron!

What colors do you like together?  I still can't decide on ,y class theme.  I travel to a few schools and I also have different grades.  I just do it all!  (except cook, clean and the other boring stuff)
