4th Grade Frolics' party because, well, I am decisively uncrafty. I really just don't enjoy making these fabulous projects that I see all over the web. Last year, I went to get the stuff to make those amazing crate seats, and ended up buying ottomans instead (which, incidentally, were a FABULOUS purchase on my part...my kids LOVED them!) I have the tool box for the office supply organizer sitting in my car....like it has for a week. I am thinking it will probably sit there for a few more weeks....
But THEN Tara sent me a very sweet note saying that yes, I am indeed crafty...just not in the cute way. ;) (she didn't say it that way, I did, but she was very nice) And she mentioned that this isn't only about the cute stuff, but the practical. Well, that got me to thinking.....I do have practical! I was actually working on some practical right at that very moment. VISTA PRINT!!!
I am gearing up for the (anticipated) big sale. I say anticipated because they *usually* have the amazing $1 shipping sale around 4th of July, but no one has gotten an email stating that yet. I just have my fingers crossed. So, in the meantime, here is what is currently sitting in my cart.
This past year, I didn't do the school pledge, and I feel like my class was "missing" something. It was just such a positive reminder of WHY we are in school, that I am bringing it back. We will start our day with this (and the morning greeting) like I used to...I am so excited about it!
I wrote about these earlier this year. I LOVE them, so much so that I ran out. They were so helpful in keeping ME accountable for grading, as well as giving the kids the feedback they need. These are a reorder (again, made it last year, but I am still counting it) They are address labels.
Reading Olympics program that I did this past year. I am thinking that there wasn't enough accountability for it all, so I am trying to come up with a way to make it more doable for all involved (me included) These brochures have been redone at bit, so they are in my cart as well!
So there you have it. Some of my Vista Print creations! I have tons more that I have used, and I reference them all over, but these are the ones I am excited to order this year! As I figure out and make more, I will be sure to post.
