Anyway, thinking today about colors and my room. I think because yesterday I downloaded some pictures off my camera and there were some pictures of my classroom - I had great plans to do the Clutter Free Challenge - ha! (I think if you click here, it will take you to this.)
OK, here are a couple of lovely pictures - and as I was looking at them yesterday, I just thought - this is not welcoming; this does not look like a fun place to be.
Now part of my problem is I'm not an all-cutesy type gal. The other part of the problem is I just don't want to do a ton to make my room all special. (And I applaud and admire those of you who do - there is a teacher in my building that did a Caribbean theme this year - it looked great! But I just know I would not do something like that.) And a final problem is that I just get used to seeing things and don't really take in how it looks or how appealing (or not) it is.
Happily enough, Clutter Free Classroom has an idea I just might steal. See this!
I think this would work nicely with my beautiful (ha) orange wall that I'm stuck with.
OK, so, Clutter Free Classroom is selling on TpT her Bright and Beautiful kit - terrific. Maybe I'm the only one, but I can't stand to think of all the ink it is going to take to print things out.
I was thinking, I need to pick my colors and get some color swatches and carry those with me wherever I go. Because you never know where inspiration might strike! (Like today at Target, which I did not give in to because I wasn't sure on my colors - yeah, me!)
So that's my rambling for today - from somebody who wasn't even sure what she had to say!
If you've thought about your classroom decor for next year, please leave a note.
Please enjoy your summer. I'm trying hard.
