Wedding, Retirement, Chalk Paint and TpT listing! {finally}

Greeting everyone! Gosh. I've had some big changes in the last six months! My baby got married,

 I retired from teaching, and I started lots of fun projects from home! My husband and I look for awesome junk stuff, and then decide how to make it better. Sometimes we actually leave it as is, sometimes we chalk paint it, and sometimes we turn it into something else! Here are a few pictures of some things we have done:

If you would like to see more please come visit me at

I will also be continuing to list some things in my TpT Store, which I will eventually start blogging about on The Robin's Nest Designs, instead of this blog so that I can have everything in one place.

Here is my current listing:

I hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Numbers, Penguins and Melonheadz Addict Club!

I mentioned the other day that I would share a completed "Teens" number sense activity that we did. Here is a picture of the first one:

I also wanted to mention how cute Jennifer's Penguin packet is from First Grade Blue Skies. I love it! We did the penguin glyph last week. Here is a picture:

Cute right?!

Did you know that Nikki from Melonheadz has an addict club now? Yup, I joined! Look! 
It includes a monthly coupon, a special members only blog, special graphics and other cool stuff!

Something I made yesterday for the kids that still have a hard time with the "teens" . . .there is a page for numbers 11-19. They will cut out the squares on the dotted lines and glue to a piece of construction paper in the appropriate spot. I will have to post a picture of an example tomorrow!

We ARE really here! I know it's hard to believe. . .also late New Year's FREEBIE!

Gosh, we really seem  to be taking an extending break on posting to the blog! I have been spending time just enjoying my home and family for a while. We had a great vacation to Disneyland over the Winter break. The weather was fantastic. about 75 degrees every day that we were there! That is quite a treat when you live in the cold and snow during this time of year! We are now gearing up for the New YEAR both at home and at school. For some reason, the beginning of January always makes me feel like organizing and cleaning things! do you feel this way also? Chari has started an office organization project that I am going to ask her to share . . .

We are also in the process of planning for a wedding. Our "baby" is getting married at the end of April. Wow! We are so fortunate that we love his intended like family already. :)

My first graders sure came back from break ready to learn! It is so amazing to see how mature and capable they are becoming. . .the end of the year will be here before we know it!

I am sure everyone is way more on top of things than I am and have already talking about setting goals and resolutions with your class-but just in case, here are a couple of freebies . .
