Well I have been gone from the blogging world for a while, but I decided that it is time to start up again! So here goes! I will do my best to stay in touch as much as I can and maybe help others along the way. I have been working hard on my website for my students and TPT projects so you can go check those out too. They might help or inspire you to create something too! Here are the links.

Inspiration Strikes Again....

I saw this on Pinterest and decided that I had to make me a box top container. I had my children save the Pringles cans this summer because I knew I could use them for something in my classroom. Well here is my version of the Box Tops container and an additional one for our soda can pull tabs. I used Pringles can, polka dot wrapping paper, label that I made on Pixlr from a frame jpg and hot glue! It took me about 5 mins wrap both cans and cut the cut holes in the lid/paper. I then attached my label after I made it. SUPER EASY AND CUTE!!  Use my idea if you want and if you do leave me a comment /pic so I can see how cute yours turned out. Here are mine:
