What's Happening Wednesday

Have you noticed all the linky parties going on this summer? Although I have not been posting as much, I have really been enjoying all the fun. Today I will be linking up with Greg, on his What's Happening Wednesday linky.
What is happening with me?
1. A HOT mess:
I am still working summer school. I am more than halfway through my sentence, time served, 5 weeks of summer school. I have been enjoying getting off of work at noon, but I am still struggling with those really early mornings. I've been going into my new class a few days a week and working on my classroom. It is still a hot mess but I have unpacked a lot of my boxes and most of my materials are in the cabinets.
Transitioning from green to turquoise has not been easy. Still buying all my storage pieces.
I can't wait to get to the decorating part.

2. New nautical anchor posters:
I haven't been able to decorate my class, but at home I have been working on some of the new nautical elements I will put up in my room. Can't tell you how excited I am about these.

I've been sticking to my same color scheme but giving each set a different look. Stripes, dots and chevron. I am really loving how they are turning out.

3. Etsy, I've been organizing my, absurdly large Etsy favorites:
I have to admit it has been very time consuming, but so worth it. I get a lot of my inspiration from Etsy shops and spend a lot of my extra cash there. I can't say how much easier it has been to find particular items now that I've created separate lists. My faves at the moments are my Washi tape, digital papers and nautical lists.

4. Pinterest, I've been pinning:
In yet another effort to try and organize all my nautical inspiration I've also created a pin board just for ideas and inspiration with my new class theme. I already have so many pins on it it is a little overwhelming. I will be working the rest of the summer trying to recreate some of these adorable items. Click on the image above to see some of my inspiration.

5. Lesson Planning, A Teacher's Plan:
Lastly, I just want to remind everyone that if you were looking for a customizable, editable lesson plan template made JUST for you, now is a good time to order/purchase. I am taking orders for pre-made AND custom lesson plan templates. If you have questions hop on over to, A Teacher's Plan, to read about your options.
That's all folks. Can't wait to read about what all of you have been up to.
Happy Hump Day
