Pinterest... It's a love/hate relationship

So, I've had a Pinterest account for a while now.  But, I just recently became addicted.  I can't stop pinning!!!  I've mainly been obsessed with school related pins.  It has really motivated me to get back into my classroom (this is very good because I have to go back to work this FRIDAY).   I've found all sorts of amazing things I need to try out for this school year.  However, I can't stop pinning to actually get things done!
I did find some time to try out this cute gift I am going to give to my team that was inspired by Nothing But Country

And I made these awesome scratch off reward tickets using things I already had around the house!






And I've even made a few shirts... like this one:

Hopefully I will get some work done in my classroom this week and I can show more of the projects I hope to do!

  1. I found your blog from Pinterest and I adore your starburst cup! Would you mind sharing the label you created? I'm not that good on a computer and I think this is a fabulous idea for my 2nd grade team!

  5. Sorry, here is the link for the tags. I wish I could claim it as my own creation. My Pinterest addiction has taken my creativity and caused me to steal others' creativity. :)

  7. Where did you buy the cups? I have been looking everywhere but only seem to find sites where you have to buy in bulk

    1. Walmart and Fred Meyer are two stores in my area, outside of coffee shops, that sell these types of cold cups.

  8. Hi,

    There are also scratch-off inks available on Etsy.

    They are really handy.

    Bye
