Meet the Teacher- Mrs. Olson




So apparently I am REALLY behind for this blog post but right now I am celebrating that it is up and finished! WHEW...Better late than NEVER right.


THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I used to dream of being a wedding planner. I loved everything about weddings. I thought I was going to be a wedding planner until I realized how much work goes into wedding planning. And how many weekends of your life are focused on other people and no time for yourself or family. However, if I wasn't a teacher now I don't know what I would be. Maybe a SAHM with a crafting business!

THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Crafty, Optimistic, Caring

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"
I love spending my weekends tearing and sorting workbook pages OR
Summer is so relaxing and work free.


Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?
Lucille Ball. I have loved "I LOVE LUCY" since I was a kid. I've always wondered what it would be like to meet Lucille Ball. She still makes me laugh to this day.


Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?
"The Non-Stop Teacher" or "The Coffee Crafted Teacher"


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
Invisibility. Need I say more. 
 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE OR SAYING?
"I can do anything through Christ who gives me strength.- Phil. 4:13


Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
"Don't Stop Believing"- Journey
Not sure that's proper for a female voice but I belt it out every time it comes on the radio.
 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?
Well...I don't LOVE the morning. But I do get up at 5:00 am every morning for an hour workout before school. I like the fact that I get up and get it done but I sure love sleeping on Saturday's. In the summer I tend to be more "night owlish" since I don't HAVE to get up.

 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?
Well, I've never created a resource for TPT. That is one of my goals for this school year. Hopefully I will have some soon!


Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 
I used to dance when I was younger. I loved it and quit to take piano, which I was no good at. So I went back to dance and stopped as a junior in HS. I wish I had never quit. I loved dance!

Sunday Smorgasboard

Happy Sunday! 
Whew. Sunday is a busy day for the hubs and I.
He is the production assistant at church and I sing in our worship band at our 10:30 and 5:00 service.
I love Sundays but they are busy.

Today I am linking up with Fabulous in First for her Sunday Smorgasbord.

I love how she says a whole bunch of random! 
This will be random!


Ok so I know everyone has been SO SWEET about my door hangers! 
Several of you have asked me if I have an Etsy shop.....well not yet. 
However I do have 2 door hangers for sale if anyone wants them....
They are random. 
Two that I just wanted to paint ...just for the heck of it!
I'd love for 2 of you to have them if you want.

The watermelon above will come with a green and black bow at the top. When it's finished it looks like this below!
     This one is $30 plus shipping!! 

Another door hanger I made is this one: 
I love this pencil!
This one is $30 plus shipping and free personalization. It will also come with a multicolored bow and hanger at the top. 

If you are interested in either of these please email me at mrseolson31@gmail.com or acraftyqueen@gmail.com

Payments would be sent through PayPal. 

Happy Sunday!
Hope yours was as random as mine!

Five For Friday- 4th of July edition

Happy Friday!!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Can't wait for some Braves Baseball and Fireworks tonight!!!

Today I am linking up with Doodlebug's Teaching for Five for Friday.

It's been a fun week! 
Here's my favorite 5!

Well my big Really Good Stuff order arrived last week.
The hubs and I hauled it up to the school this week and unpacked it.
It was staring at me to do something with it so....I did.
I went and started sorting and labeling book bins..
I didn't know what a CHORE it would be.
ICK.



And then this happened!
I got an email saying I had 150 followers on Bloglovin'
150?? WOW. 
Y'all made my day!

I may just have to giveaway one of my door hangers...
What do you think??


Speaking of door hangers...
I finished a custom hanger for my co-worker.
She ordered them for her sons' teachers this year.
I am in love with this door hanger.
I wish I was a science teacher.


I purchased Kinder-Craze white library labels.
They are turning my mess into an organized mess :)

They are GREAT!

Lastly, I am enjoying a weekend getaway the hubs in ATL.
We're enjoying World of Coke, Shopping, ATL Braves game and the Zoo.


Happy Friday to you!!!

Pinspired Thursday!

Happy Thursday!
I am posting from the road today.
The hubs and I are finally getting a weekend getaway JUST US 2! 
Wahooo..

Today I am linking up with Just A Primary Girl for her Pinspired Thursday!
I just love her little person from Melonheadz! 
I want my own little person! :)

So I made this recipe from Pinterest twice last week.
The hubs loved it! 
Frito Chip Taco Salad by Six Sister's Stuff.
I left out the tomatoes due to me not being able to eat them but it was REALLY good.
I mean really good!
This is a keeper!

My next pin is from Kinder-Craze blog.
I adore her room. 
I want to be a kid in her room.
I fell in love with her framed rules she painted. 
She gives a whole tutorial here!
Aren't they cute??

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/173247916890367083/

I have some rules I printed off last year for my room that needed a REDO.
I've painted mine but haven't added the gloss sealer yet..
Not bad..
Can't wait to hang them.

Lastly...
I love this pin
I just recently purchased new bins from Really Good Stuff.
I want to print these labels for my tables so each child knows WHICH number table they are! 
Mine will be one blue, one green and one pink!

Happy Pinning!

What I'm Wearing Wordless Wednesday

Y'all...I've blogged 3 days straight.
WOAH.
I won't give myself too much of a pat on the back because we're going out of town tomorrow and I may not blog till next week.
I have a goal to get the blog posts ready today to post each day.
A goal...hopefully it will be a reality.

Today I am linking up with 2 great blogs for Wordless Wednesday and What I'm Wearing Wednesday.
Wordless Wednesday is hosted by Sugar and Spice


I went to my room to tackle sorting books yesterday.
Well...I got this far and I was done.
At least its now halfway organized.
Next week I hope to finish.


I am also linking up with Ideas By Jivey for What I'm Wearing Wednesday.
Here's my thrown together outfit of choice today. 
Trying to stay cool since its blazing hot.
But look stylish too!

 Sorry they are blurry. I was in a rush!

Shorts:// Old Navy
Bracelet:// Lenny and Eva
Necklace:// Caroline G. Shop

I am slightly convinced I may have an obsession with crazy shorts/capris/pants.
just a slight obsession...
maybe :)
