Online Thirty One Party, Pinterest Linky & Currently...

Hellllo :)

Gosh, it is a gorgeous day here (hopefully it is the same wherever you are right now).  I wanted to share a pinterest-inspired craft I am working on and the link to my online Thirty One bags party.

I haven't ever had a party before, but the most awesome sub ever (I mean she is AWESOME- she loved my students this year like they were her own) mentioned the specials for this month & I was tempted.  If you spend $35, then you get a large tote for only $10

So- are you looking for a new lunch bag?

Perhaps a new school bag?
Then click on my link-

My Thirty One Party

The items you purchase will be sent to you directly after my show is over on the 10th (just make sure you click for it to be shipped to you instead of me!).  If you order, let me know :)  Thanks for supporting me!

So, like I posted about before, I have reallllly wanted to make these lights:

I have to tell you a secret though... I am an awful estimator.  Like seriously- I either buy wayyyy too much of something, or totally not enough.  This time I underestimated.  I will probably need about 4 times what I bought to finish this, but I wanted to share what is done so far.

What do you think??? I love it lit up and off.
Love Pinterest?  Made anything for your classroom so far?  Join up at the Monday Made-It  4thgradefrolics Pinterest Linky
And last but not least... (I have ALWAYS wanted to do one of these!!!)

My currently for June:

You should go to Oh' Boy 4th Grade and do your own! Oh Boy June Linky

I am thinking about doing a spray painting tutorial later in the week- would anyone be interested in that???


  1. Annnnd I'm a dork- Saved my currently pic before it was finished- Was supposed to say "a coconut snow cone, let's see if I can talk hubby into it".

    Oh well... :)

  2. Haha! I am a terrible estimator too, it is pretty ridiculous sometimes!! I love your lights, super cute.

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  3. Your lights are REALLY cute! I bet they'll look great when you are all done!

    1. Ummm... no comment on the cost lol. I may have to take a loan to afford it. I just keep telling myself how cute it will be when it is done.

  5. I am right there with you on being a horrible estimator!! I love your blog and can't wait to read mroe.

  6. Your ribbon lights are so cute! I just posted about organizing computer files in my "Work Smarter, Not Harder" series. That's what I accomplished last week.

  7. I would love a spray paint tutorial! I saw that you spray painted your plastic organizers and want to do the same. Spray painting isn't as easy as it looks: ( Your lights look great, I'm thinking these would be cute for my daughter's room


  8. I am getting ready to order something from your 31 party! I just love their stuff!!! Yeah for joining Farley's linky too! She is so wonderful! I have actually met her in person!

  10. I like the spray paint tutorial idea.

  11. Those bags are adorable!! Your "needing" reminded me of an awful task I need to do as well. All my TpT creations, downloaded fonts, clip art, downloaded TpT purchases are all floating around in one massive folder. What a mess. I don't even want to think about organizing it, lol.

  12. I SUCK at estimating! You can't even imagine...
    Your lights are super cute. I'd probably light myself (or my house) on fire!
    I hope your husband finds the job he loves! Mine still hasn't found his - but that's what you get for being a musician in a small town! :)

  13. Adorable! I must try my classroom color scheme of course! ;) starting my blog at the end of the week!

  14. Those ribbon lights are adorable- are you worried about them getting too hot and being unsafe? (And they were probably super expensive, weren't they? *sigh*)

    SO cute, though- and I'm a new follower! :)

  15. Hi!
    I am a new follower and a fellow 5th grade teacher!
    I was drawn to this because I, too, have this project pinned on Pinterest. Yours turned out soooooo cute!
    I haven't started mine because I'm not sure exactly what to do with them, only that I love them.
    Out of curiosity, what are you going to do with these adorable lights?

  16. We're a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community. Your web site provided us with valuable information to work on. You have done an impressive job and our whole community will be grateful to you.
