I HEART FALL!

Pinterest has me feeling very inspired lately!  I wanted to share a few Pinterest projects I've been working on!  They are all projects for my home, but I still thought you'd appreciate!  :)

I used Glow in the Dark Puffy paint (the kind for t-shirts).  It doesn't "glow" as much as I'd like, but it still looks super cute!
Front stoop decor!  I found the basket at Michael's.  I'm still looking for the perfect fall plant to go inside the basket.  Maybe a mum?
The mantle is super simple....lanterns from Wal-Mart and fall garland from JoAnne's Fabrics.  {I can't remember where the wooden pumpkin came from!?!}  I figured the bookcases were pretty busy so I didn't want to overdue it on the mantle.
I found this darling wreath at Joanne's Fabrics.  I bought the letter P at Michael's and decorated it with Mod Podge and gold glitter.  Gotta love Pinterest!
I fell in love with these when I saw them on Pinterest.  They were SUPER easy to make.  I gave them out as party favors at my Mom's 60th birthday party last weekend.
And last but not least....Mason jar floral arrangements for my Mom's party!  I wrapped each mason jar with burlap ribbon and then tied a lace bow over top.  The hydrangeas were super cheap so this project was fairly inexpensive overall!  :)

The Magical Product Swap!

MrsStanfordsClass
I'm so excited to be part of The Magical Product Swap hosted by Jessica Stanford at Mrs. Stanford's Class!  For this swap, I had the pleasure of pairing up with Elita, Lisa, & Loriana.  These three have a wonderful blog called Teaching Rocks and an awesome store on TeachersPayTeachers!  Their store is filled with 67 incredible products.  For this swap, I had the opportunity to choose ANY product from their store to review.  I chose "Your Essential Teacher Binder: Classroom Organization Kit (Monster Theme)."
Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this product!?!?  I'm slightly obsessed with organization, binders, and cute monsters, so this product was PERFECT for me!  This product contains 73 pages of goodness!  After I downloaded, I enlisted the help of my trusty helper {Boise the kitty} and started printing, cutting, and assembling my Essential Teacher Binder!
I chose a bright green binder because I thought it looked great with the colorful monster theme!  Here's my masterpiece!
As you can see, I added tabs for extra organization!  These tabs are my absolute favorite because they are easy to move and adjust!  The sticky works well, and it's easy to move!  

 I created five sections: Planning, Meetings/Prof. Development, Substitutes, Student Information, & Goodies!  I also added a piece of colored card stock to the end of each section (see below).
 
This product is awesome, and I feel so organized and prepared!  Here are a few screenshots of the great tools you will find in this product.
 
I'm so grateful to the girls at Teaching Rocks for creating this invaluable resource, and I hope you'll check it out too!  Don't forget to check out Teaching Rock's blog to see which product they swapped from my store!  

If you haven't signed up for my $25 Target gift card giveaway, take a second and do that now!  The giveaway ends in three weeks! :)
