July's Currently

I am posting with Farley's Currently for the first time!  Here goes!

Listening: To reruns of Grey's Anatomy.  I don't watch a lot of tv but during the summer, I do like to catch up on old reruns.  I don't know why, but I never seem to get into a tv show until it comes on as reruns.  Perhaps because I can't stay up late enough to watch it when it comes on the first time? LOL  This summer, it seems to be Grey's Anatomy.

Loving: That my kids are playing nicely!  As a mom of three boys, I do not get to say this often.  Usually I hear sounds of wrestling and arguing coming from the play room.  It is nice to hear the sounds of giggling every once and awhile!

Thinking: About what my theme will be this year.  I didn't really do a theme last year.  My theme for my blog is monkeys and I do love monkeys but haven't really found anything cute to go with it.  I am contemplating making this my next project.  I am thinking, cute monkeys and bright polka dots.  What do you think?

Wanting: To paint my living room.  My house is in desperate need of some new colors!  I love painting and redecorating throughout the summer.  Usually I choose a room each summer.  I am thinking this summer will be the living room!

Needing:  A good book to read.  I feel like it has been so long since I have sat down and read a good book.  I have been so busy with the kids and school and TPT products that I just haven't really taken the opportunity.  Any suggestions?  Looking for a good author.

Tips, Tricks, and Hints: Give newbies a chance!  I have been blogging and on TPT for nearly a year now, but I still feel like a newbie.  I don't have a lot of followers and I probably don't post on my blog as often as I should.  This internet world can be difficult sometimes when you don't receive feedback on something that your worked really hard on or you ask a question to get no answers or you make a comment and no one responds.  There are SO MANY people out there with great ideas, it is easy to feel a little "lost in the crowd."

Well, that is my Currently!


  1. My husband says that I redo a room in our house every time we have a break. Since I've painted the last 2 spring breaks & summers, I guess I have to agree with him. :) But when else do we have the time?!

    I don't really have a theme in my classroom because I could never commit to one thing. I just stick with bright colors - it's easy to find things & if I get sick of it I just move things around or find new baskets, etc. My classroom still looks put together and kid friendly!

    You're right...there are SO many people with blogs these days. It's hard to keep up with them all! Just do what you can to promote your store & keep linking up with other people to get your name out there. I'm a new follower! ;)

    1. I love painting my house. Perhaps it is part of the ADHD in me that I can't keep it the same way for too long! Lol But you are right, summer, spring break, Christmas break....these are the only times I have to take care of things at home!

      Thank you for following!


  2. Love your blogging tip. :) So true.
    We are doing a Space theme this year. Trying to figure out how to get a spaceship in my

    The Teaching Twosome

    1. I did a space theme once and I made a rocket using a carpet roll! It was fun. I made little "windows" on it and put pictures of my kids in the windows like they were flying to space!

  3. Jessica I left you a note on your facebook page that I nominated you for the Liebster Award. I don't know if you got it or not. So I'm leaving you another note. Pop over to my blog to get the details.
