Whew! I had such a productive Monday yesterday. It felt so good to actually get some stuff done. I did NOTHING for the past week because I have been enjoying some sun and sand. It was so great to spend a whole week relaxing. I haven't done that since I got my job!

Other than vacationing... I have been thinking/dreaming/debating my color scheme (I'm avoiding a "theme") for next year every single day. I am horrible at making decisions! I have decided on just using a RAINBOW of primary(ish) colors. (So basically I decided to not pick a color scheme and use every color...HAH.) I haven't been able to find an alphabet wall banner that fit my classroom, so I decided to make one. I am SO happy with its beginning stages. Tomorrow I am going to get it laminated and then I will string it together. I am excited to show you guys the finished product as soon as I get done.

Sneak Peak =)

I also can't stop thinking about the first day(s) of the new school year. Because I started my job in November, I still haven't had to do any sort of back to school stuff. AHH I am nervous! =) Well, to ease my nervousness (and to be productive), today I whipped up some back to school postcards. I plan on sending these out a few days before "Meet the Teacher" day. I will print them on card stock, write a note on the back, stick on a stamp/address, and head to the post office. As a kid I would have loved to get a note from my new teacher, so I am hoping my new students will feel the same way.

Postcard Example:
(Available for grades k-5.)

You can download these postcards for FREE on my TPT store by clicking HERE. 
The font I used is from Kevin and Amanda.
The border is from The 3am Teacher.

Well, I guess that is all for now. I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer so far.
As always, I would love for you to leave some love (aka comments! hah).
