A Hodge Podge Post!

Well....today was my first day of kindergarten.....with students anyway! Our kinders stagger start so I only have 5-6 a day and then next Monday they all come! I had a really good day with them and am looking forward to tomorrow! I wanted to share one of the photos I took of them this morning. I love the sweet little poster I got for free from Run, Miss Nelson's Got the Camera TPT Store! Isn't it adorable? I found this gorgeous frame on my summer trip to Pennsylvania & Ohio for just $0.99 at a thrift store in Amish country. LOVE...:) My hubby spray painted it red for me and I popped the poster in it and here it is in all of its' adorableness! Not a word I know...LOL!
This little sweeties name is, believe it or not.....Heavens. Any idea what her last name might be? If you're curious, leave me a comment with your guess and I'll reply by e-mail and tell you if you guessed correctly!

 Does the sight of this next photo make you smile as much as it does me?
 I love the little smile shaped arrow from Amazon! I got a text earlier in the day that said my package that had been on back order had been delivered. I was excited to get home and get it! 

Inside the box was another box...but it wasn't smiling at me!

A peek inside...any guesses?

Love the colors!!!

Oh my....I am in LOVE! Isn't this class set of Westcott scissors the best! Have you ever used Westcott? I used to only use Fiskars, but I tried Westcott a few years ago when they were giving away samples of their scissors and I was sold. Anywho.....while perusing Amazon a few weeks ago, these babies popped up. I loved the color coordinated cups and scissors and the carousel with the handle is just the icing on the cake. 

But.....what I really loved was the price! Are you ready for it? The entire set of 24 scissors, storage cups and carousel was just $22.84 and then I got another small discount making it right around $21 and no shipping since I am a PRIME member! Excellent deal or what?

I just love it!

I am also excited about my first ever purchases from a few amazing ladies over on Teachers Pay Teachers!

I bought these from Teaching With Love & Laughter

These awesome & adorable behavior beads from Rockin' & Lovin" Learnin'!

and finally.....this from KinderCraze.

I am thrilled with all of these purchases! I am in awe of all the amazing things everyone creates and really want to try my hand at it....some day! For now, I will enjoy all the awesomeness of you creative ladies!

Hope your week is going well...tomorrow is hump day already! I am so excited for the weekend since my daughter is coming home and I haven't seen her in almost 7 weeks! I don't normally rush time, but I am so ready to see her...:) Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Until next time.....


  1. Thanks for the shout out, Vicky! You DEFINITELY should try making some stuff. It's actually pretty calming and fun once you get started. Just let Miss Nelson or I know if you have any questions when you do decide to try it. We'd be happy to help!
    I'm not even going to try guessing the last name. I'm sure it's good though!
    The scissor caddy and scissors looks like it is a must. I like Westcott scissors too!
    Do you love having Prime? I have debated about doing it, but I have a feeling it pays off in the end.
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'
