Getting My Toes Wet in the Blogging World

Being fairly new to the blogging world is very exciting, but quite intimidating as well. There are so many amazing blogs out there!! Each day I am wowed by all of the creative and fantastic ideas that are posted. I wonder how do these people do such incredible things and do them so quickly. Hope from Second Grade Shenanigans 

literally blows my mind. I found her blog last year and was super excited because she was doing a rockstar theme. So I stalked and stalked all year. Hope...Do you ever sleep? Is there anything that you can't do? Thank you so much for all you create and share. I hope someday I will be able to create and share back.

So as I continue to stalk  follow all of these fabulous blogs and spend a good chunk of time on Pinterest, I decided I wanted to share my first big project with everyone. I am going to revamp and upgrade my Rock Star themed classroom.  Right now it is all packed up so they can do a deep clean for summer. 

Some book shelves and computer area

More stuff to organize!

More books!

So here are the only 2 photos I could  find  from my "Rock Star" themed classroom last year. If you are wondering why I only have two photos it is because I am notorious for taking photos and then forgetting to download them to my computer or print them out.

A "rockstar" reading area for the kids!
After seeing many cool stools on Pinterest last summer,
I tried one for my own classroom.

I have been searching for new ideas and thinking of how I am going to change it up.  I look forward  to sharing my changes with everyone throughout the summer.

On another note...I want to thank Tammy from Forever in First for helping the newbie post a button that will actually link back to the person's blog. Since you were so kind I wanted to say thanks and let everyone know to go check out Tammy's blog!!
