Book Giveaway!! and an update of sorts..

In honor of the new school year I am giving away two books to ONE lucky person!  To enter, leave a comment on this blog post. 


I LOVE Sark.  So inspirational, colorful and fun!  The first book is called "Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper" which is about writing.  I picked this up from a library sale, so it is a discarded library book with a little bit of water damage.  I personally don't care if a book has a bit of damage, as long as you can still read it!    Then, there is "The Bodacious Book of Succulence."  This book is in excellent condition.. I think I picked it up at a garage sale or paperbackswap.com.  I want to share the love with you.  All you have to do to enter the giveaway is to leave your name in a comment and I will pick a winner out of a hat next week. 


And.. I am LOVING this blog post about how to organize all of your lesson plans from Pinterest..  Print out the little squares, cut out, sort and organize.  

Next week Thursday we have our first day of teacher inservice and the kids come the following Monday.  Are you ready for school yet?

I've been trying to jam pack as much as I can into the last month of summer break.  This week we went to a farm and here's Daria feeding the goats with a bottle of milk.


I LOVE those eyes!

And, last night I bought an electric piano!  I used to take piano lessons for about 8 years when I was a kid and I've been wanting a piano for about 5 years now.  We got it off of Craigslist.  Love Craigslist.

I love your graffiti fabrics and collages. I studied textile design, and would love to incorporate more fabric design in my classroom.

So there I was reading your blog post and I thought, "Hey cool! Someone else did a blog post on lesson planning and Pinterest." I click. And boom. It looked pretty familiar! Thanks for referencing my post.

And I would love to be entered in your giveaway!!
