Final Touches

Tinsel made on the tree after all and a few "new" ornaments made it, too. 

This week is flying by as I have a lot of school duties to attend to. 
We're heading out to see Star Wars this afternoon for some mommy bonding time. 

I can't wait!

I sincerely hope that this Christmas season brings you joy, beautiful memories, friendships rekindled and good health. 

Best Wishes to you and yours from all of us at the fab household,


2015 is FLYING by!

I spent the time before Thanksgiving break organizing my classroom and bringing in a few Christmas decorations.  New pencils in winter designs and bling were a huge hit when we returned to class. I picked up another couple of classes in recent weeks so I am spending a lot of time preparing for classes these days. My posts will be few and far between as a result.

Munchkin has been a busy bee helping with the various mini trees and placing ornaments on the big tree this year! A few new ornaments arrived in the mail the other day and we ooooohed and aaahhhhed together in harmony. It's not quite finished yet but I had a few minutes available to post. We still have several cases of ornaments to look through and the heated debate over tinsel continues. 

Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas season and a very Happy New Year!
All my best, 


More goodies for class!

DH was kind enough to pick up a whiteboard for me so I don't have to erase mine and re-write several times each class. It will really save me some prep time each and every day.

The room is starting to come together with a few little touches. I plan to bring my orchids and remaining bins this week. The students had a great time playing medical terminology JEOPARDY this week. I'm thrilled with their progress in just 3 days! MY STUDENTS REALLY ROCK!!!!

Looking forward to an awesome school year.

Deal of the Week

Target had a beautiful selection of brightly colored plain notecards with envelopes. It has 100 of each, I believe. I had a $3 off coupon, making the final cost under $13. They will make terrific welcome back to school notes for my classes.
Happy Back to School Shopping!


Getting Organized!

 These fabulous containers were made by Sterilite. I always plan to spruce up the sewing room but they seem to be urgently needed for classroom organization. I plan to take 4-5 extra deep and 3-4 of this size to start the year off.  I'll be hauling my new school supplies to class in a few and when they're emptied, they tuck nicely away. Each class will have a designated basket to make collecting and returning work a bit easier. I also have the cutest miniature pails from Target (a score at the $1 aisle) for spare pencils, pens, paperclips, etc. I ordered my planner today but it may take a while to get here----'Tis the Season.
