Ring...Ring...Ring....It's Time for the Back To School Blog Hop

The day has finally arrived!
It's time to begin our First Annual Back to School Blog Hop.

Thank you for joining us today. We are very excited that you have decided to visit. We have planned this hop to last an entire week which means many different things.

1. LOTS of projects will be shared that you will be able to create for teachers, students, parents, and/or for your own child. We have created numerous projects for this week, which means that one will be posted every day. Be sure to come back often so you do not miss out.

2. Comments will be necessary. I am an elementary teacher and reflecting is part of growing. PLEASE share comments!

3. Followers...We teach children to become leaders, but in this case we need you to become followers so we can see what you are creating too. Remember it is sharing not stealing (at least that is what we say in the world of education).

4. Goodies! We all have blog candy so visit often to increase your chance of winning. Winners will be announced on Monday, August 16th.

Here is the line up for the week. There are only 5 of us so you do not get lost along the way. We hope you enjoy!

Day 1
I created this centerpiece using Locker Talk and My Community. I am going to use it at our Meet Your Teacher Day which is the Friday before school starts. I chose vibrant colors for each picture and various subjects. I attached each cut to a bamboo shoot and that is colored rice in the vase. How do you make it?  Just use food coloring and a plastic cup. Then spread out on a paper plate to allow drying time.

Be sure to hop on over and visit Dorcas at 4 Crafty Angels now.

I hope you will come back tomorrow for another Back to School project.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

 
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...I entered this project in the Back to School Challenge at My Sheri Crafts. There are some more wonderful projects there.

  52. I think I hear my cricut getting ready to groan.. :) Going back into the classroom after being in the dark side of 'administration' for the past couple of years... and all of these idea's are great! Where to start is going to take time to figure out. I love this idea as a gift.. would be great for the secretary/secretaries in the office.. maybe with a 'Please Sign In' poking out of it. :) Thanks so much for sharing!
