Gettin' my Craft on with Michaels #create2educate

I'm so excited to have teamed up with Michaels for the HUGE create2educate event this year!  I have been working hard for a couple weeks ~ shopping and crafting and I can 't wait to share what I've been doing.  Here's my stash - Check out that long receipt:
 
 
I posted this on instagram...I've been busy!
 
 
 
 
 
First I purchased these super cute, sturdy straws for my student's birthdays.  I added a little banner and they are all set for the year:
 
 
There were so many choices ~ I picked polka dots, stripes, chevron, etc.  I know my kiddos will love them.
 
Next I needed an update on storing my pencils so I purchased these adorable clear jars... and now my students will have a place to return broken pencils and grab new ones...
 
 
Next I am switching grade levels this year and the older kids have much smaller desks...so I added a teacher desk to my room.  { I haven't had one in years }.  Well my teacher desk needs to be cute right?!?  So I made a M for Moore and that pink owl in my window is from Michaels too!  They have everything!
 
 
 
Next up I purchased an oversized clothespin and modpodged some fun scrapbook paper to the front - now I have a pretty decoration I just have to decide do I want it at school or in my home office....decisions decisions...
 
 
 
 
 
I have an owl theme...you could use any theme you have to create a fun banner with some coordinating scrapbook paper...
 
 
Oh my goodness is your head spinning yet?!?  But wait...there's more...
 
 
 
 
 

One of the last things I want to share with you is this chalkboard bubble I bought...it will be darling to have above my student's head on the first day for pictures...
 
 
Oh and one more thing...you know they also sell candy right?!?  As you are checking out there are some yummy goodies...well I picked up some candy and made a fun little blogger gift for my blogger meet up in San Diego yesterday.  It was a big hit!  Maybe you can make something for your students or parents for back to school night...the possibilities are endless!

  1. You have done so many amazing projects and I might be in love with all of them. I cannot believe how clever so of these are. I need to get crafty ASAP. I wish you would just come over to supervise me. Look out world when I have spray paint in my hands!
