Medium time and effort projects - mostly just time in front of the computer.

|Thanks again to Tonya's Treats for Teachers for this idea|
|Thanks to Clutter-Free Classroom for the tip to trim a calendar with ribbon (or in my case glitter tape)|
The next two are items that I created with Print Shop and then ordered from Vistaprint
|My version of the ever popular tracking thinking posters|
These I made with Print Shop, printed them on my color laser printer and then glued them together
|There are three banners I needed for my room the largest is 6 sheets long|
The last items were definitely more of a time/effort investment.
|an ocean version of facebook/classbook - I ordered it from VistaPrint|
|and coordinating headers for showcasing kids work with their picture - printed myself|
This was a project that I expected to be simple and it just wasn't. After ordering the aprons from ebay they arrived smelling terrible (mildew and cigarette smoke). I first tested out fabric paint to cover the logos - no go. Next I washed them all to get rid of the stink and then had to untangle the MESS from 30 strings (well actually 60 since they have 2 strings each). I sorted the ready to go ones and the others that seriously needed ironing :-(
Well there you have it. If only I was always this productive. It helps that my hubby was out of town and the only thing I had to do was an evening wedding Saturday night. Actually now that I think about it I did spend about 6 hours in my classroom Friday too - pictures still to come.
I originally was going to load up several of the files to Google docs and share but I ran out of steam. If you are doing an ocean theme and you would like any of the files just leave a comment with your email and I'll get them to you.
I leave this evening for California and I don't return until next Monday so I won't have a chance to make anything for next week. Well, maybe I'll just do something late. I will of course stop in and check out everybody else's wonderful stuff.
Thanks for stopping by... and reading this far :)
