I had every intention in linking up with 4th Grade Frolics last Monday for "Monday Made It", but--alas--life got in the way! This month I have made SO many things for TpT and for my classroom, but I thought I'd share a quick and easy "I have a problem that needs solvin'" project. I am a scrapbooker AND a teacher which means I have PAPER EVERYWHERE. I often have ... Read the Post

It can become overwhelming, ... Read the Post

Washi Tape Tricks and Easy Calendars

That hasn't happened yet, but on one of my little shopping expeditions last week, I accidentally sort of bought a roll. Just one. It matched my classroom. Don't judge.
