Five 4 Friday:the LAST friday in May!

I feel like it has been forever since 
I Five 4 Friday'd it up. 

Well it Has and Has Not.

Last time I linked up on a Fraturday.

So today, on this very last Friday in May,

I just had too. 

I feel like it is in the Blogging Handbook.

On Fridays, thou must link up with Doodle Bugs.

So, without further pointless rambling....

One: I've gon Copic Crazy!!

After some serious soul searching,I have decided to 

And with a little You Tube browsing I found out
about these lovely babies.

But man are they pricey!

But I still bought some.

As we speak I am waiting for a shipment (due tomorrow)
of their Special Edition Set w/ the black barrels.

And like 23 individuals. AHHH!!!

But while I wait I had to take advantage of 
Michaels Memorial Sale!

So I went in for 1 marker.

Silly me.

I got one and asked to go through the line again.
And lucky me the manager said yes!


I went through and intended to by two more.

Then I picked up another.

And found out that one was reduced to $1.99

So hence lucky number five. Also $1.99

*V000 and V01

I also ordered that cool looking Copic Inventory booklet.

That I did not need but.....

I also did not need Studio 3 Solutions Color Cubbies.

But I ordered 3. And I am glad because....

And I ordered mine on 5/29/14!!

Be on the lookout for a Copic Marker/Storage Video

TWO: The Frozen Flashdance

Wait...What is it called when you break into song, 
but do not dance?


Well, we took the 3rd graders on a trip to the

National Air & Space Museum.....

Which was pretty cool, even though 
it did exactly make my five).

What was even better was the Coach Bus ride.

We watched FROZEN.

And the kiddos did this.

I just want to note that one of the loudest voices 
was a little boy.

He was incredibly precious and not only knows the
songs, but the line-VERBATIM and motions.

FROZEN has taken over our school.


Not only am I a undercover fat kid, I love to cook!

And this week I made ribs for the first time.


CLEARLY, it is not the last time.

Pictured you see Baby-back Ribs, Chopped Kale and
Corn Muffins made with Real Corn Kernels.


I have every intention on making a food linky.

Does anyone want to be involved?

FOUR: Digi Stamp Crush

With my "Return to Art" initiative, I ran across Digital Stamping. 

And fell in love.

I am going to assume you know what Digital Stamping (DS) is.

And for those who don't-GOOGLE.

Anywho, I have not purchased many because I am

waiting for my Copics.

(If you haven't been listening, scroll up to number one.)

Okay, but all the DS I have purchased are all from

The artist, Krista is super amaze-balls.

They remind me of urban, super cute....
 and not scary/creepy Precious Moments images.

I plan on ordering way more! She has one with a mustache' for $4.oo

Anyone wanna gift it to me?

Pretty Please is implied!!!

After my post, scroll up to where I linked her and 
check out her work. You will love it!!!

FIVE: Speaking of Stamps....

When I went into Michaels to ONLY but one Copic Pen,

I found these cute stamps.

And guess what? I only paid $2.00!!

*pats self on back*

And again with the Washi Tape...

I know, I know.

But I could not resist.

I cannot wait to show you guys my collection.

I am still waiting on a few tapes from China.

Yeah, China. 

I ordered from Amazon and did not pay attention to

where they were coming from.

I may or may not have an online shopping problem.

After you comment and tell me you love me and that I do NOT
have an online shopping addiction, then head on over to 

Doodle Bugs Teaching and link up!!! 

If you have already linked up,

1. Kiss Your Brain

2. Let me know in your comment.

P.S---> Congrats to those who crossed over to Summer Vacation!!!
I am super jealous and envious of you all. Thanks to SNOWMAGEDDON,
our kiddos are in school until the 13th.

And then we have two days of mandatory Common Core Training.

SO we are done June 17th at 3-4 ish.

Can you hear the excitement in my voice?


  1. I've been out of ART:CREATING:CRAFTING for a while. I'm going to have to look into Copic markers! I'm heading to Michaels tomorrow for paint, so I'll take a look! :)

    Enjoy your weekend!
    Suntans and Lesson Plans

    1. Definitely look into Copics. They are usually on the display of markers near the register....I never paid attention to that until I found out what they were. Make sure you check back on my blog in a week or two to see my reveal posts on my Copics and Washi Tape. Hopefully you are following my blog on Bloglovin so you will get the update!

      Thanks for commenting :-)

  2. Someday we have GOT to meet in person! You are exactly my kind of gal! I can see us doing some serious damage in Michael's! I want to look into Copics. One of my friends suggested them to me a while back.
    Love ya girl!
