Mentor Award

Summer blogging is nuts!  Keeping up with all the posts is impeding my daily reading and floating. Kudos to all of you sharing and inspiring....I am going to catch up one of these days!

A big thank you to Owl Things First.  I like to call her my bosom blog bestie. (because we both love Anne of Green Gables.)  She has awarded me with the Marvelous Mentor Award.  I don't know a whole lot about lots and lots and lots of trial and error is how I figure things out.  But I help when I know something:-)

Here are the award rules:
1. Thank the person for giving it to you.
2. Give it to people who helped you learn the blogging ropes.

I would like to pass this award on to 
Ladybug's Teacher Files  She always has helpful ideas as well as new ways to make things cute...for the blog or the classroom.  A whole section of her blog is tutorials.  Also, I am in love with the "flipped" black/white circles!
I needed to label some of my drawers and thought it would be a great way to try out the flipped funness.  This one is on my teacher area (hence the cursive writing)  Inside the drawers are file folders for RTI, PBIS, Schoolwide Awards, etc.  Another has the stamps and jewels for the clip chart and student "stamp cards."  
This one is for students to turn in weekly work.  I like having students sort work as they turn it in...saves me a step at the end of the week, when I check it off.

I also redid my calendar days and months, using the same technique and a circle.  Here is my question, I really need a circle cutter!  Do any of you have a circle cutter you love?  Suggestions?

Also, don't forget the fun Inky Linky Party happening at Mr B's Beach Brains.  It is all about tattoos and I am loving seeing other people's ink!

Happy Friday,


  1. I'm probably rather ignorant, but what do you mean by "flipped"?

  2. I'm very touched by this, thank you so much!!! It means a lot to me and I am delighted you've been able to use some things from my blog! I love Anne of Green Gables too and had to laugh at your "bosom blog bestie" phrase!!

  3. Thanks for all your kindness, Laurie! You are my BBBF! I can't go to the Linky Party because I would just feel jealous and have to run out right now to get my own!!
