RePosted: T-Shirt Quilts

 Today I'm talking t-shirt quilts as I've had several questions about this lately and with graduations coming up I wanted to share with plenty of time to get your shirts together since these make such great grad gifts.

I made this t-shirt quilt years ago (I think it was pre-Mason) and it was hours and hours of work and my fingers literally bled.  I cut each shirt, backed it with interfacing, sewed them together, then did a layer of polyfill and then the back and then HAND QUILTED the whole thing before handing it over to my mom to do the binding.  IT WAS A BEATING.  


BUT - how awesome is it.  It's spirit shirts from my first few years teaching which were SO SPECIAL and fun.

What's Up Wednesday

 Today I'm linking up with  Shay and  Sheaffer to talk a little bit about what's been going on around here! I missed out on this last week when I pressed pause on the blog to get caught up on some school things but wanted to share anyway ;)

I shared our meal plan on Monday's post so if you missed that you can check it out HERE

I've also been on a big chicken wrap kick when I'm home for lunch....


... this was from Sunday and it was SO GOOD!

Teacher Tuesday - Handouts/Notes/Binder System

 


I first blogged about this new "binder system" I had put in place in my classroom back in September of 2019.  I'm happy to report that it's STILL going strong and still one of the best things I ever did for my sanity ;)  Today I'm resharing the post since I had a ton of interest in it and questions about it (as well as the worksheets/notes pages I make) after I shared a DITL over on my Instagram page last week

First up on my FAVES from the week was this pic Dave sent me from a quick park trip.  I'm 99% certain they were being punished but I don't even care ;)

St. Patrick's Day Doodle Town

Resharing this post since we're quickly approaching March and I wanted to make sure you had time to think through how you wanted to possibly use these in your home or classroom leading up to St. Patrick's Day.

Strawberry Bread

I had some extra strawberries that I needed to use this weekend and so I made some strawberry bread.  OH MY WORD!!! This was SO SO SO GOOD! I loved it with the glaze, but honestly - it would be great without the glaze as well if you're wanting it a little less "desserty".  I also think that you could EASILY switch the fruit out for blueberries, raspberries, etc. (or a combo) and it would work equally well.  If you make this I'd love to hear what you think!

Valentine's Dinner 2024

 Valentine's Day is one of my FAVORITE days of the year and I did a fun little dinner for our crew that was SO CUTE!  I ordered balloons from Party City but everything else was stuff I had and I just pulled it together to make it a little bit festive...

A (Sun)Day in the Life

 Hey, friends! It's been a while since I did a weekend day in the life and I'm not sure I've ever shared a Sunday so I decided to document last Sunday and share all the fun ;)

My alarm was set for 7:00 so I could take a shower and I ended up waking up at 6:00 feeling like somebody was watching me and LOOK WHO IT WAS! hahahaha.  Our room is blue because there was some sort of sound machine ocean thing going on there.

Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots

I am not generally a fan of cooked carrots - a steamed, mushy baby carrot is NOT where it's at for me.  However, what I am down with is a glazed semi-crunchy roasted carrot.  Today I thought I'd share how I like to prep the easiest and tastiest glazed carrots around.  You really can't mess them up and they're the perfect side to any sort of meat and potatoes situation you have going on.

Prime Lately

I had a laminator for several years that I loved and used often until it randomly stopped working and completely melted a project I was trying to laminate.  I grabbed this one because the price was great and have been really impressed!
