First Steps...

I'm taking my first steps into the blogging world!  I've been following blogs for probably close to a year and finally decided to try my hand at it.  So I figure I should start with a bit on an introduction.  

My name is Samantha and I am a kindergarten teacher in Oklahoma.  This year will be my third and I am very excited! The first year was about making it to the end and my second year was about getting more comfortable.  But this year I feel like I really have a true teaching style and I'm actually branching out and doing things different from my teammates!  Anyway, I am 29 and engaged (getting married Sept. 29, 2012!).  I love bad tv shows, the color orange, being crafty and teaching!

This summer I joined everyone in the pinterest rage and fell in love with some crafty school projects.  Here are a few that I did for my classroom.  Please excuse the picture quality; photography has never been one of my creative excursions.

My crate seats!  I <3 them!
This is a close up of my fabric.  Cute letters!

I made these initials for my teammates.  I love how they turned out!

I made the wreath for me since my initial will be changing after I get married.
It's not the best wreath but it's good enough!
So thanks for stopping by my new little blog.  Feel free to leave suggestions for improvements :)
