It has been a while since I've blogged. I've been really busy with the end of the year and tearing my room apart only to pack everything up and then have to unpack it in August. (And I'm recently engaged and loaded with planning a wedding and managing the end of the year as a first year teacher.)
In the process of packing things up, I was able to clean things out and do a lot of throwing away. I somewhat have a problem when it comes to throwing things away. Most teachers keep everything because they never know when they may need it...me....I throw it away without a 2nd thought.
Yesterday was the last teacher workday and today is the FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF SUMMER BREAK! I woke up at 9:13 and im angry at myself because I complained all year long about wanting to sleep in. I just knew I was going to sleep until at least noon. But my mind had other plans. Anyway, I woke up and immediately began planning for next year.
I've been really inspired by Brittany over at Sweet Seconds. I happened to stumble upon her blog because it is the same name as mine. BUT SHE IS SOOOOO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS LIL OL BLOG OF MINE. If you have time, check out her blog. She has lots of great ideas and everything is so cute.
This year I had a monkey theme but I kind of fell of bandwagon and stopped incorporating it into my decorations. Over the summer I am revamping everything and turning my room into a Sweets Shop. Think cupcakes, lollipops, candy, ice cream, and anything sweet and sugary. I have lots of ideas running thru my head and can't wait to start on them.
My first project will be crate seats. I know you've probably seen them all over blog land. Its a hanging file crate turned into a seat. Can't wait to get started so I can show how they turn out. Another big project will be organizing my classroom library and labeling things. This is where I hope that Brittany can help. She has lots of adorable labels that I'd like to use for my library.
Anywhooo....I've rambeled enough. Let the DIY projects begin!
