New Blog Design!!

I'm so excited to reveal my new blog design! I spent the day {literally} putting it together. The best part is that I designed it all by myself! I'm so proud :)

Of course, I couldn't have done it without the help of Megan's amazing blog tutorials over at I Teach. What's Your Superpower? If you haven't checked them out, head over there right now. She has so many helpful videos that walk you right through the many awesome things you can do to your blog!

Let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by :)

P.S. Only a few hours left to my giveaway!

It feels GOOD to be back!!

I am officially the worst blogger! This year has been quite the whirlwind, but now that I'm back in summer-mode, I'm so excited to start blogging and CRAFTING again!!! I was so sad when I started my new job at the beginning of this past school year and they told me that my room had to have a "natural feel" -- you should have seen all of the rolling eyes and skaking of heads when I started bringing in my Monday Made It's and cute rugs/pillows/lamps, etc. They made me march it all right back into my car and take it :( Then I had to go back into all of the cute files I had made for my classroom and change them to basic boring colors...ahh!

Now...I am actually moving again to another school to teach second grade, but it is with the same district (It's a district with lots of Magnet Schools), so I'm not quite sure what the rules will be about the look and feel of the room. Keeping my fingers crossed that they will allow more creativity!!

I thought you might want to see what my room looked like this year. There is some color (I tried to sneak it in as much as I could)!!

Take a Peek into my 3rd Grade Classroom:
