We're on our third day! Blowing right through these - so here goes nothing!

Today, I want to talk about creativity. As a teacher, you CONSTANTLY have to come up with ways to be creative in order to keep the attention of your students. Where do I get my creativity? Pinterest and other teacher bloggers. Maybe this isn't as creative as I could be (depending on others), but there are SO many ideas out there... why reinvent the wheel?

As some of you may know, I love doing DIY crafts. If I could professionally craft and was actually REALLY crafty, I would drop my day job and do exactly that. So, let's go back through some of my own crafts I made for my future home or for my future classroom - man, there's a lot of future in my life!

Button tree I made for a craft guest blog post over at {KELLY'S BLOG} - how uneven, but that's the character!

Dry erase Ombre frame made from paint chips - will be hanging this in my future home :)

There was a mini trend where everybody was decorating letters for the word READ or MATH, etc. So, I did mine in beach theme! They'll be up in my future classroom.

Based off of {THIS} pin. What a great quote to put in the classroom! 

DIY Dry Erase To-Do list - I'll be putting this either in the office or on my desk to be able to quickly jot down things I need to do.

M frame for my little, Melanie and U frame for my future home :)

 Wreath I made for a swap partner based upon {THIS} pin.

These are just a FEW of the projects I've made. They're all posted somewhere here on the blog, but I plan to do so much more. For instance, my upcoming projects are:

There are SOOOO many more things that I'd love to make, but these are just a few upcoming projects!

Where and how do YOU find time to be creative? How do you develop creativity? Share with me - I'd love to hear about it!

Back to working on this ever-so-lovely Masters degree. It's kickin' my butt to say the least!

See y'all Tuesday for Letter D!
