DIY Wooden Washi Tape Tic Tac Toe Game

A few days ago I revealed my new office makeover and the fact that I have a problem hoarding my craft supplies.  I buy fun and pretty craft and party supplies with good intentions to use them, but then I stash them away in my office and either forget that they are there or convince myself that it is too pretty to "waste."   Well with the start of the new year and a freshly organized office I've decided to use up those pretty things and use them to create extraordinary memories and fun, like this … [Read more...]

There are only 7 days left until Valentine's Day and I'm back with another easy idea for classroom valentines.  These "You're a Great Catch" valentines are perfect for boys to pass out next week in class.

Valentine Link Party

I'm normally not a big fan or pink or red, but for some reason I simply adore Valentine's Day and the explosion of pink and red hearts everywhere.  I think it's because (A) it gives me yet another reason to create a party, like our Whoo Loves You Valentine Party and (B) you get to write sweet notes and remind those around you just how much you love them.  It's fun to leave sweet little notes for my kids in our Valentine Monster Box and another tradition that our family loves. Valentine's is … [Read more...]
