    DIY Decorating My Classroom on a Budget

    I am enjoying my summer break, but I am also thinking about my classroom.  I am not quite ready to start mulling over curriculum because I am having way too much fun planning how to redecorate my classroom on a budget.  I want to keep my black and white with pink accents color scheme but I want to update my walls and other decorations and I have a ton of ideas for DIY decorating my classroom on a budget. How to Get a Big Bang for your Buck About four years ago, I wanted a way to add interest to boring bulletin boards around the room.  I was tired of using…

    Make These Adorable Disney Coasters

    So I got this idea when I was making the photo coasters with the ceramic tiles.  I wanted to do Disney themed coasters, and I thought cork would be fun.   http://weekendsintheloft.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/Mickey-take-2.mov Supplies Needed: Cricut Design Space Red Siser HTV White Siser HTV Black Siser HTV Plaid Clear Acrylic Sealer Cork Coasters  I have to admit after I ordered these coasters off Amazon, I remembered I had a roll of cork left over from another project.  I could have cut the cork out using my Cricut and my deep cut blade and housing I had just ordered from Amazon. I’ll have to try that the next time around. How to Make…

    Getting Ready for a Disney Trip

    My girls and I are total Disney fanatics.  We live in Central California and make the trek to Disneyland at least once a year.  I usually make us matching shirts for the trip, but this time I made us each a different shirt.  I love the classic Minnie and Mickey theme.
