New Blog Address

I'm still here.  I hope you continue to follow my blog.  I had just started adding buttons, links and other bloggy stuff.  ;)  I had to change my email address, and I couldn't figure out how to keep or transfer my original blog.  Suggestions are welcomed.

Teacher Workdays actually start next week, but I've tried to get a head start.  My room is pretty much set up.  Right now I have tables for the students.  I will probably need to change that, because I will have more students than I anticipated.  Adding another table will make it too crowded, and there won't be enough storage for the students' supplies.

Enough with the obstacles.  I was able to use my new Cricut E2 to make vinyl adhesive letters for my leveled book bins.  All my trips to Target last year and this year has paid off as far as book bins.  My leveled book bins look so much neater than last year.  Do you think I should straighten up the letter "H"?
Leveled Book Bins
Most of my leveled books are from Reading A-Z.  I do use some of the leveled books from the school's book room, but there usually isn't enough copies.  Maybe that will be next Donors Choose project.


  1. Where did you get the vinyl that you used? How did you affix it? I love that idea! :)

  2. It's Provo Craft adhesive backed vinyl. It's like Contact paper. Just cut, peel and stick. I bought it at Wal-Mart. My daughter has bought different colors at Hobby Lobby. Other craft stores sell it also. I wish I could find patterned vinyl.
