DIY Monster Dress-Up Shirt

Our school is celebrating Red Ribbon Week with a different dress up for each day. Today was monster day. My friends (my kindergarten team) and I needed a quick and easy costume that wouldn’t break the bank. Here are our monster shirts and the kids LOVED them!

Craft Class at The Creative Cactus

This year has been amazing. As many of you may know, we started out 4 years ago as a blog called, “Connoisseur of Creativity.” We loved that blog and will always remember where and how we began, but we decided with the new year that we needed a new name, new look and we needed to really start turning our dreams into reality. Texas Craft House was born in January and we hit the ground running – we are crafting more, blogging more, doing craft booths, opened an Etsy account, and started teaching craft classes at a local art and craft studio. This was a wonderful opportunity and we had so much fun teaching our first class on how to make Elisabeth’s very popular Americana wreath.

Volunteer Gift: Painted Pots

I have been combing Pinterest for the perfect thank you gifts for my parent volunteers. I teach kindergarten and I couldn’t get through my year without the help of my parent volunteers. I wanted something that they would keep, reuse, and remind the parents of the kids and classroom for weeks to come. This idea I found and pinned to my Classroom Gifts pinterest board where I collect ideas for parents, other teachers, and gifts to students.
