Weekly Roundup

This was the first week of school, so I have been rather busy, but I did take the time to read a few blogs.  Below are some of my favorite reads.  I'm linking up with My So-Called Chaos and High-Heeled Love for their weekly roundup.

Chalkboard Clipboard Signs at Organize and Decorate Everything

This DIY is right up my alley since I'm a teacher.  And it seems so easy.  I haven't tried it yet, but I have no doubt that I can make this, and I can envision so many different ways I could use this at home and at school.  All you need is a clipboard, painter's tape, chalk paint, and chalk.  I loved her idea of having her children hold a clipboard with their grade in school for their first-day-of-school photos.  I would like to make one that says, "________ days until Christmas/Valentine's Day/Easter/Summer/or whatever countdown I want.  I can also see it as a welcome sign in my classroom.  What a great idea!



3 Odd Things That Make Me Ridiculously Happy at I'm an Organizing Junkie

I like this post for two reasons.  First, I've been reading OrgJunkie for a while now, and it was fun to read something personal about what she enjoys.  I like when I get to read a post that helps me feel like I know the writer better.  Also, I love what she did with her refrigerator.  Go take a look!






15 Amazing Personal Ads From the ’90s, Presented With Commentary at The Cut

This post was light-hearted and funny!  The author put together 15 real personal ads from a New York newspaper that was in circulation during the 1990's.  Considering that's almost how I met my husband, I found it quite fun to read these!  My husband and I met online via personal ads back when it wasn't cool to meet online - before dating sites existed.  You may remember a website called Excite.com circa 2001?  They published personal ads much like the newspapers once did.  I'm pretty sure our ads sounded nothing like these.  One of them begins like this:  "I'll Shoot My Dog!"  What is up with that?  The commentary on the ads is pretty clever!

I hope you enjoy these!  Have a great week!
