Post It Holders for Back to School
Guess what I got?
I finally took the plunge and bought a smartphone! I am currently sitting here learning how to use this little beauty! Right now I am listening to music on Siren (Macklemore and Ryan: Same Love~Awesome song! Love that Mary Lambert). I am sure it will take me weeks to learn how to use all the features but so far I think I am going to LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
Anyhow, one of the first things I did was sign up for Instagram and then snap some photos! I have to admit I am NOT a good photographer at all. I am working on it though. I love that I can send my photos directly to Picasa and then use them on the blog! I plan to take a lot of pictures in my classroom again this year. I hope the phone comes in handy for this...I don't always have my Canon with me when I need it.
In June I had purchased some photo holders with the intent of making post-it note holders as a thank you gift for some of the teachers on staff. Well, life got in the way, and I didn't make them. Fast forward to last Monday. I was prepping my classroom for next Tuesday, when low and behold, I came across the frames and the post-its I had bought. I decided I would give a sticky note holder to each of my colleagues as a little back to school gift.
I realized that I would need more frames, so I headed out to my nearest dollar store and purchased more frames, sticky notes, double faced tape and some scrapbook decorations. The store didn't have the same sized frames as I had purchased back in June, but hey, go with the flow right? I decided to personalize the frames for each staff member using the scrapbooking decorations I had purchased. I think they are super cute and turned out great. What do you think?
I apologize that the pictures are not high quality. I am still getting the hang of the camera on the phone.
Do you do anything for your colleagues for back to school?
