WYLTC Chalkboards

Today we are sharing our take on chalkboards, this month's theme over at Wood You Like To Craft!  Ours is a copy cat version of a chalkboard we liked at Ballard Designs.  Super simple and it involves no painting!

Make sure to head over and see all the cute ideas that Wendy, Krystal and Melinda have shared this week!

Teacher Appreciation Door Sign

This week has been C*R*A*Z*Y!!!!
We've gotten such great feed back from our school on how
spoiled the teachers all felt!
I love hearing that!
Our final gift this week was a door sign for my daughter's teacher.
I made one a couple of years ago for her other teacher
who had just gotten married.
I cut out a cute pencil shape and decoupaged papers and letters onto the front.
I think this one turned out fun too!
I'm going to list them in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested for end of year teacher gifts.

The funniest thing about this week was yesterday as I chatted and confirmed that I had the sign all done with my Co-Room Mom Meghan~who also teaches at another school, she said that she wished that one of her students would make a sign for her!  I could barely keep a straight face since I had just finished making one for her too!  I hope all of the wonderful teachers out there know how much they are loved!  Thank you for all you do to help our little ones!

Teacher Appreciation Door Decorations 2013

I promised you door decor and here it is!
This year my daughter and I decided to do a Harry Potter themed door for her classroom.
Her class of friends have all started reading the first few Harry Potter books
and they have their own version of Harry Potter tag they play at recess, so it seemed fitting.
Her teacher is dressed up as Professor McGonagall casting a "Smartify" spell!
I personally think it's hilarious and so does my kid~so that's all that matters.
Her teacher said it filled up her Happy Well for the day~and that made my day!

I always beg to do the Librarian's door because she is one of my favorites at our school!
I have a thing for paper fringe right now and new it would work great with this Lion!  Yes, the lion has apparently been snacking on a few too many zebras, my daughter scolded me when she got home and saw it.  I guess it was supposed to look more like a Littlest Pet Shop lion....

Here's all the other doors!
I personally loved the scrubbing bubble door for the janitors~so cute!
The ice cream cone is completely 3-D, with Ikea kid plates wrapped in cellophane to mimic candy!
Didn't they turn out cute!?!

We celebrate all week long at our school.  Our PTO and volunteers provide a potluck lunch, each day with a different theme, all week long.  I'm in charge on Wednesday with "Finger Foods"~so all things appetizers.  I thought it would be a fun twist for this year.  We do all sorts of raffles and prizes for the teachers all week long as well as each individual class doing their own list of things.  Tell us, what do you do at your school to celebrate Teacher Appreciation?

Patricia Wojnar Crowley!

Thanks so much to everyone who entered!
It was so fun to see your sweet comments and hear what you liked!

I've got everything ready to post tomorrow morning for our Door Decorations for Teacher Appreciation week.  I know, I promised Friday, but there were 4 doors that had been missed and should be up tomorrow morning before school starts.  I felt like I was stalking the hallways of the school with my camera...  So I promise *yes, pinky swear promise* that tomorrow morning I'll have them all ready to show!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!  The weather is perfect and gorgeous here and I'm headed out for an afternoon nap!:)

Bake Your Teacher A Thank You!

As I'm scrambling to put the finishing touches on my
Teacher Appreciation Door Decorations tonight
I thought I would share a fun idea we found for Teacher Appreciation Week.

Over at The Mom 100 Blog they have a cute idea you can
not only use for Teacher Appreciation Week but also for any time of year!
It's called Bake Your Teacher A Thank You
It's a Potluck of different cookies that can be
baked and brought to your school to show your teachers how much you care.
It's been so popular that some have a special cookie day once a month.
I know our teacher's would love that!
Make sure to head over and see their cute ideas and recipes!
Also they have a great "Bake Your Teacher A Thank You" Sweepstakes
you'll want to make sure to enter!
Now back to gluing on letters.....:)

PS. Don't forget to check back this weekend to see who will win the Gift Certificate from Shabby Apple and to see the Fabulous Door Decorations for this year!  Squeal!  I'm so excited to see what everyone does!
