I could get used to this...

I haven't much moved from the couch today. I saw someone post something on ProTeacher about getting the motivation to get up from the computer. I have an excuse though... I have no way to leave today, because my car is at the car place getting his checkup. So there, take that. I have successfully made it through the morning, busy creating away from the help of this guy blasting from Napster:

{love him}

It actually all started because the kept advertising his special on CMT, which then forced me to venture to the closet to take out my boots which haven't been worn in far too long. So anyway I'm midway through his 3rd CD and I'm taking a break to get emotional while I watch my Cubbies lose [yet] again. Wah.

So here's what I've created, most of them based off request, some based off need to be redone to match my room. I'm still looking for new ideas to create stuff, but I think I'll take a break, and I dunno... take a shower? do some laundry? put away dishes? Probably not :)

Alright, time to eat my words already. My Cubbies took the lead... let's just hope it can last through 3 more innings. I think I'm getting the itch to take the Cricut out... let's see what comes from this :)

Christie said...

Thanks everyone :) I'd LOVE to see pictures of my creations in other people's rooms!! Hello, HUGE compliment!!

Amber, I have created primary calendar pieces. If you look at all my July posts find the one that says "A Few Things By Request..." it has the primary calendar pieces. I can whip up some primary days of the week tonight.

Jennifer, I'm pretty sure I have them. I'll look later after dinner and I can post them for you :)

I'm glad someone feels my appreciation for Mr. Aldean :)

Oh my gosh girl, I love all of this! Especially the polka-dot and zebras! I did a polka-dot theme the last few years, and am going to keep it but incorporate more black with bright colors. So these are perfect! Thank you for saving me more work! Kinda feel like my "to do list" hasn't had much accomplished! Can i ask where you got the clip-art/patterns? A scrapbook kit?

Amanda said...

Thanks a lot! I'm in the process of putting together the S.T.R.I.P.E. binders, and I was wondering if you have a template of your ABC's of third grade that you could share or a zebra themed reading log with columns for the day/title/genre/number of minutes/parent signature... or would consider making one? Thank you!

Thank you for sharing all of your hard work! I love your stuff! I wish I knew how to create such great stuff. Did you take a class or did you just learn on your own? Could you create math worshop (cafe) posters in a portrait zebra theme that have the following headings: Number Sense, Computation, Geometry, Measurment, Statistics and Probability? I would be willing to pay you.

Hi Christie~

I absolutely love your writing process posters. I'm wondering if there's any way you could alter one of them. We use the term "editing" instead of "proofreading." Would you be able to change that so I can print them for my classroom?

Thanks

I just found you and want to thank you so much for sharing your adorable posters! :)
