The Vinyl makes the wall pop!

A big shout out to Melanie Duspiwa for cutting and applying the wall art above my windows. Not only is she a fantastic second grade teacher at my school she also has her own business, Memorable Moments By Mel, where she creates beautiful wedding gift plaques and other personalized gifts like you see here. Be sure to check out her website. She is very reasonable!

Delta Kappa Gamma SWRC ~ Branson, MO

I can't believe a week has flown by since my fellow teacher, Judy, from Streaming Thru Second and I attended the Delta Kappa Gamma Southwest Regional Conference. The hotel accommodations at The Hilton at Branson Landing known as the Hilton Promenade Hotel were very nice and we certainly enjoyed helping at the registration table. We always have the best time and love seeing key women educators from all over the world. We are looking forward to going to Indianapolis next summer for the 2014 DKG International Convention!

If you are interested in joining Delta Kappa Gamma please go the website and search for a chapter in your area. Judy and I have been members for over 14 years and both have served as chapter president. We have grown professionally and our chapter has provided assistance to many charities as well as giving two grants-in-aid yearly to high school senior girls who are planning to study education in college.

Monday Made it!

Monday actually it was more like Tuesday around 3am when I completed a few more projects. Check them out! Now I am off to take them to my classroom. TTFN!

A 31-derful Delivery!

I was so excited to open up my box from Thirty-One!
 I just had to have a couple of large utility totes in the striking Black Floral Brush Strokes to go along with my Black & White classroom theme.  I just love how classy this one looks!

A Painting Kind of Day

It's amazing what a few cans of black and white spray paint can inspire one to do. First, I wanted to paint my vintage free-standing mirror holder white. Between my mother-in-law and myself it has been reflecting 45 years of kindergarteners. 

I have had blue supply tubs in my room for 13 years. They are still in good shape but they needed some freshening up. I cleaned them up with Goof Off spray then hot soapy water.  The picture shows the first coat. They will be a glossy black thanks to Krylon Fusion spray paint specifically made for plastic. 

I had a red and gray plastic drawer organizer that I wanted to change to black and gray. The red front just popped right off. Two coats of Krylon Fusion and that was completed today as well.
