Hello from Newberry, Florida! What's that?? You don't know where that is?! Well, not surprising- but to give you an idea, I live about 20 minutes from the glorious Ben Hill Griffin Stadium at the University of Florida :) So I am practically in Gainesville, just west to be exact! I moved to Gainesville to attend the notorious college and
Now here I am getting ready to start my FIRST YEAR of teaching and I'm so excited-nervous-anxious-scared! I didn't even know that it was possible to feel all of those emotions at one time, but I do! I hope that through blogging, Pinterest, Facebook, and TpT, I can reach out and gain some direction, mentors, and fellow teachers that will be there to help me when I just don't know where to begin. Sort of like right now! ;)
I truly am excited to begin blogging after following some of the other amazing teaching blogs out there for guidance! You guys blow me away with your innovation, creativeness, and true passion for all things education. I have
Well, I want to share what I've been working on for my classroom. It is my first big project and I am just BEYOND excited! I told my mom and hubby that I just HAD to have my very own, personalized treasure chest for my classroom. I had a picture in my mind and I was bound and determined to do it. So as my mom and I are browsing through Joann's (my home-away-from-home)- there it sat on the shelf! The wonderful, dreamy, perfectly unfinished treasure chest! AND it was 40% off- BAZINGA! (any BBT watchers out there??)
Well- I forgot to take a picture of it BEFORE I began- Whoops! Rookie mistake… However, behold- the wonderfully decorated/mod-podged treasure chest :) So excited!!
I think the red/magenta and turquoise are GORGEOUS! What do you think?
Don't mind that adorable hippo in the background- I <3 hippos! :)
Can you see the awesome glitter I mod-podged on?
Oh yes, it definitely is one of my favorite things ever! I'm not done though, once my Cricut stops being ridiculous and will hook up with my Mac, I plan on cutting out my name in vinyl and put it on the front. LOVE IT!
So what are your classroom projects for the summer? Anything crafty that you are adding this year? I saw an awesome chair on another blog that she decorated with her initial and other awesomeness- pretty sure that is next on my list!
Thanks for stopping by y'all!
