Thanksgiving Bulletin Board :)

Happy Thursday...the last one before Thanksgiving! YAY! I am super thankful for our DELISH Thanksgiving lunch feast today! We are blessed with an amazing lunchroom staff. Seriously, I want to ask them for their recipes on multiple occasions! Their sweet potato casserole is to die for! :)

This year, my Thanksgiving hallway crafts came from 2 of my fave bloggers!

First shout out is to Hadar {Miss Kindergarten}
We made these pies the very next day after she posted this cutie! I ADORE the saying...'First Grade is As Sweet As Pie'! Super easy and precious...the perfect Thanksgiving craft! :)

 I have recently gotten a few questions about the ruffle border! This idea is from one of my former co workers! She had this cuteness everywhere and I made her do a demo for me! :) It is hard to explain, but you cut strips of butcher paper about 4 inches wide {it doesn't matter how long the strips are}. Then, you hold the paper with both hands and scrunch it up using your pointer fingers and thumbs. Great description, huh?!?! :) The best part about the ruffle border is that it doesn't have to be perfect!!

I found this cute little number last year and this was my second year making it! Ridiculously adorable...

If you have a few extra minutes {HA- funny, right???!!} over the next few days, The Legend of the Five Corn Kernels is a super quick, but impressionable, lesson. You can click on the pic below to snag it for free from TpT.

Have a great rest of the week! :)

Where It All Started!

Happy November, y'all! Hope you had a happy Halloween! Sugar high, anyone??? Put. down. the. Kit. Kats. and Milk Duds. and Butterfingers. and Baby Ruth. Oh, let's be serious...the whole dang candy bowl!  Ha!!!

Any Modern Family fans?? SHANTS??? I die! 
I also HEART the new show Nashville! So fun! My little sis lives there so it is fun to see all the hot spots in town on the show! 

Last November, I contacted Denyse at Scrappin Doodles and asked her to create graphics for all of the Old Lady books. I was SO PUMPED when she emailed back to say yes!!!! She is such a fabulous artist! The crazy Old Lady has been a fave of mine since my first year of teaching! I even made an old lady puppet for sequencing! *Will update with a pic tomorrow from school!

My very first Old Lady unit, I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie, needed a little sprucing up! TpT buyers and sellers..can't you instantly tell your first few units??? :) It kind of makes me cringe! HA!
