Today brought my 22nd kindergarten student and a building with no air conditioning. Needless to say, I'm really glad that today is over! Hopefully tomorrow will be a calmer, cooler day.

It's time for me to send out my annual plea for postcards from your hometown and/or vacation spots. We use these in class to learn about other places and compare them to where we live. I've done this project for a few years now and it is always such a big hit with the kids in my class. There is nothing they love more then receiving
these postcards from far away and not so far away places.

My school isn't really in the inner city, but it isn't in the best of neighborhoods either. Most of the kids in my class have never traveled anywhere other then to the houses right on their street. Many of them don't even go to the beach and we live in Miami! Your postcards open up the world to them and gets them thinking about places they would like to visit or even live someday.

We will be collecting these all year so if you can't send us one right now it's Ok. We'll be happy any time they arrive! Here's our address if you can help us out...

Ms. Brown's Class
Greynolds Park Elementary
1536 N.E. 179th Street
North Miami Beach, FL 33162

I've got a second part to my request this year. Will you please make a post about our project on your blog? You can either put the address on your blog or send your readers here to get it.

If you make a post on your blog, please come back here and leave a comment with the link and on Friday I will pick someone to win a $5.00 gift certificate to the store at Stuff to Scrap.

I'll keep you updated on how many postcards we receive!

I'll be back later to post my part of the STS September Blog Train!

Oh man, has this weekend ever flown by. I didn't get nearly enough done, but I did get lots and lots of sleep. I'm heading back to bed again soon. LOL!

I told you that april has been busy this month and she's still working agay. She sent me a picture of something she drew today and it is going to be cute! I can't wait to see the kit she puts together!

In the mean time, here's a preview of her kit called Wood N Plaid. This is a fun kit that's perfect for some of the handy man pictures you've got laying around.

I used the kit to make a QP for you. The download link is below the picture.

I've got to get some sleep now. It's Independence Day at school which means the kids are coming into the building without their parents. I hope their parents can take it! LOL!

Another Sandy Beaches QP

Download wordart here

Have you ever had one of those days where everything you do takes twice as long as it should? Well, that's how my day went. I didn't get half of the things done that I needed to because I just couldn't concentrate. Oh well, everything left undone will still be there tomorrow. LOL!

I was out running errands today and I actually met up with some friends that I hadn't seen in years. They're in town on vacation so we had lunch together and got caught up on things. I'm jealous that they're on vacation and I'm not!

I have another QP for you that I made using April's Sandy Beaches Kit. By the way, have I told you that I love this kit? Well, I do! LOL! The download link is under the picture.

I'm going to go catch a little bit of Big Brother After Dark before I go to bed. Enjoy your day and look for me on Digifree

Well, I'm up bright and early today, but that's OK since I've got so much to get done. I wanted to stop by and tell you about a bright, cheerful kit from Manda's Scrappin' Creations called Bright Star. This is a beautiful kit that is perfect for scrapping pictures of the little star in your life. I plan on uising it with lots of pictures of my class this year. Check out this preview...

Ok, I am officially a wimp! I went tout for dinner and drinks with my friends and was so tired I had to call it a night and come home early. I've already napped and am ready to go back to bed for the night. LOL! Man, this week really kicked my butt!

I do have the QP that I promised you earlier. I made this one with April's new kit called Sandy Beaches. I love this kit! Just look at this preview...

You can get the kit in April's store at Scrap it Sassy and the link for the QP is below the picture.

In honor of surviving my first week back at school I thought I would stop in and give you an extra wordart. I thought this one was a perfect fit for how I feel this week. LOL!

On Monday I'm losing two students, but gaining three. How's that for Dade County math? LOL!

I also wanted to tell you about this super cute kit by Sudesh Designs. It's in the store at Stuff to Scrap and it's only $4.00! This fun, colorful kit comes with 13 papers, 42 elements and a full alphabet set. Just check out this preview...

Finally Friday!

I am so glad that this week is ending. I plan on getting all kinds of sleep this weekend!

The bright spot in my otherwise horrible week came today when one of my students from last year came by to visit me. He said that my class room was his happy place. He made my day, my week, my month and very possibly my year.

I have another QP for you from April's My Dad Kit. The download link is under the picture.

April has really been busy lately getting some great new kits into her store. Make sure you check them out! You'll also want to stop by here again to pick up some quick pages I've made with her Sandy Beaches and Wood N Plaid Kits.

I'll be using April's Freedom Kit to make the certificate's I give out on Monday when we celebrate Independence Day at school.

Is it Friday yet?

Download wordart here

It's amazing how tired the first week of school makes me! I plan on sleeping through the weekend----if it ever gets here! We had our first fire drill of the year today and that's always fun. NOT! LOL!

My lunch didn't get stolen today so I guess that's a plus. LOL! I did tell my assistant principal that I would be constantly reminding her that I have to eat lunch alone. She just laughed at me. Sometimes, it's a bad thing when no one takes you seriously!

I've got a QP for you that I made with April's new kit. The kit is called My Dad and is a wonderful tribute to her stepfather. Here's a preview of the kit...

The download link for the QP is below the picture...

The quote is on the QP, but I thought you might like to have it separately also so you can download it here

I really should be asleep now, so I'm going to bed. Enjoy your day and remember to look for me on digifree.

Today was horrible!

Download wordart here

Have I told you that I have to eat lunch alone? Because of an absolutely horrible schedule that we're not allowed to change everyone is finshed with their lunch before I take my class so that means I have to sit all by myself to eat lunch. I hate it! Today, after a very LONG morning, I go to get my lunch out of the frig only to discover that someone had stolen it. I had eaten a bowl of cereal at 6:30 in the morning, it was now 12 noon and I had no lunch. I should have stayed in bed!

Tomorrow I can fix it so that my lunch doesn't get stolen, but I'll still have to eat by myself. It's so sad!

On a brighter note, I've got another layout to share with you that I made using Deanna's The Old Academy Kit. I've also saved this as a QP and the download link is under the picture.

I survived!

I survived the first day of school, but I am so tired now that I can't see straight. LOL! I've got 18 new kindergarten students and there isn't a shy one in the crowd.

Today I gave the other teachers on my grade level a CD case calendar that I made using a mixture of graphics from Deanna and April. I tailored the calendar to match our school year so it goes from August to June. You can have the calendar too. It makes a great teacher gift. Just add the school info for your district and you've got a great and cheap gift. LOL! The download link is below the picture.

Did you remember to visit Deanna to pick up today's part of The Old Academy Kit? I used some of the graphics on the calendar. I've also got a QP for you that I made with the kit. The download link is under the picture.

Come back tomorrow and I'll have another QP for you that I made with this awesome kit!

Another Chili Pepper QP

Download wordart here

I was at the deli in the grocery store today waiting in line behind another lady and her daughter. The little girl was picking out the deli items she wanted for her school lunch this week. Someone pointed out that all the kids were excited about school starting tomorrow. This got the three adults standing around me talking about how they were ready for their kids to be in school again so they were all excited too. I spoke up and said that I was a teacher and I wasn't excited. Everyone laughed at me. LOL!

I've got another QP for you that I made with April's Chili Peppers Kit. the download link is under my layout.

April has added two alphabet sets that match this kit to her store. Make sure you check them out!

Deanna is releasing an awesome back to school kit on her blog this week called The Old Academy. You're going to love it! Just look at this preview...

I've been playing with this awesome kit and I'll have a LO or two to show you tomorrow. Right now, I've got to get some sleep because tomorrow is going to be a long and busy day for me.

Chili Peppers QP

Download wordart here

I've been so busy trying to get things done today that time has just flown by. I sure do wish I could add an extra day to this weekend. LOL!

My friends and I went out for dinner and had a nice relaxing night. I needed it after the stress of the past couple of days and because of the stress that I know next week will bring.

I took some time to play with April's Chili Peppers Kit today and I decided that April and I just can't be friends anymore. Seriously! She used actual peppers from her garden to make this kit. Now, I have to ask you, is it fair that she has artistic ability and a green thumb? I think not! LOL! OK, so I guess I am being a Drama Queen today. LOL!

Anyway, I figured it was the perfect kit to show off how hot I think George Clooney is just in case you have somehow missed the fact that I am totally in love with him. I saved the LO as a quick page and the download link is under the picture. I wasn't sure if you would want the writing on your page or not so I saved the wordart separately and you can download it too.

I told April that the colors in this kit match the new paint in my class room wonderfully. You'll see what I'm talking about next week when the kids start school and I take some pictures.

Come back and visit me tomorrow for another awesome quick page made with April's graphics and don't forget to look for my blog on digifree.

I'm heading to bed now. Enjoy your day!

What a day!

So, Kindergarten Orientation was unlike any that we've ever had before! Since the main campus is still undergoing remodeling construction the parents came right to the classrooms. The list of students we had in our class did not match the letters that went home to parents. So, all of my pretty nametags were useless! We were able to laugh it off and not concern or upset parents. I had a room FULL of parents and if I'm lucky about 5 of them will actually have a kid in my room. LOL! Monday should be interesting!

I'm going to bed now. Enjoy your day!

Well, the first day back at school wasn't so bad. They fed us breakfast and lunch! Tomorrow morning is Kindergarten Orientation, so I'll get to see some of my kids before they officially come on Monday. I've got the camera charging now so that I can start taking pictures! LOL!

I'm really tired now, so I'm going to call it a night and go to bed. Enjoy your day!

Chili Peppers

Download wordart here

Check out this awesome new kit by April! It's called Chili Peppers and it is on sell at Scrap it Sassy for only $3.24. The kit comes with 11 papers and lots of elements!

I've been pretty busy the last couple of days and haven't gotten the chance to play with the kit yet, but I am really looking forward to the weekend so I can! April has already got an awesome QP for you on her blog, so make sure you go pick it up.

I ordered a new printer and it arrived today. It was really funny because I have a new FedEx delivery guy and he couldn't find me. LOL! The phone rang and it was him saying he thought they had my address wrong so he told me what he had and I confirmed that it was correct. Fifteen minutes later he still hadn't arrived with my printer so I walked out in the hallway---no sign of him. I walked down into the lobby---no sign of him. I checked the three other hallways that people get lost in when trying to find me---no sign of him. I asked the ladies working in the mail room if they had seen him and they hadn't, but assured me they would point him in the correct direction when he showed up.

I got busy doing stuff and the next thing I knew an hour had gone by and there was still no sign of the FedEx guy. I looked online and saw that he had put into the computer that I wasn't home to sign for my package. I got the guys number off of the caller ID and called him to see what had happened. He said that he was in the mailroom leaving my package there because something was wrong with the elevator and it wouldn't let them get off on my floor. LOL! You don't have to take the elevator to get to my floor. There are two different sets of five stairs off the main lobby that will bring to to my hallway. LOL! I just had to laugh at the guy!

I got my printer from the ladies in the mailroom so all is well!

Tomorrow is my first official day at school. My room is almost done so I should be more than ready for the kids on Monday. I'm going to bed now. Enjoy your day!
