Check, Check and Check!

Happy Summer Friday! Or is it Monday?  Tuesday?  No, it's Sunday.  I never know what day of the week it is once summer vacation hits. 

There were a few things on my to-do list for this first week off...

1. Buy something fun for my classroom.... {check}

Magic Music Wand from Chinaberry - click the picture to go to their website.  Duct tape from Michael's!
I've seen the magic wands around blogland and thought I needed one of those.  They are so cool!  I plan on using it when I need to call the group together.  Just a sweet sound when you tap it on something. 

I can't wait to do this with the duct tape!  Michael's had so many cool was hard to choose!

2.  Wish upon a rainbow.... {check}

This actually is the second one this summer.  Maybe where you live you see them all the time - but I've only seen a handful in my life time - so whenever I see one it gives me goosebumbplies!  This was  a double rainbow right above our house last night!

3.  Create my first product for TpT! {check} I've spent DAYS on it and had a lot of fun doing it!  So now it's up for sale in my "store"...ha, why does that make me giggle?  I have a "store"...who says that?!?  If you're in the market for a parent/curriculum/open house/beginning of the year parent information toolbox you'll want to check it out.  Seriously, without tooting my own horn or anything, I think it's full of stuff you'll find useful!

Click the picture to check it out at my "store"!!!!! I'll give you a great big hug if you do!

I'm pretty happy with my first week off. Hope you are enjoying yours!!!

What's up next week?

At least ONE full day in the sun and ONE full day in my pj's...


  1. Sounds like you have gotten a lot accomplished!! :) I love that patterned duct tape. I think I'm going to have to check Michael's out!

  12. I love the duct tape on the door. Do you think it will take off the finish? I bought some cool duct tape to go with my rock and roll theme, but I would hate to tear up my door.
    We had a horrible storm right before our wedding, but then during the reception we had an awesome double rainbow. :)
