A Blogger's Summer Schedule...

Well summer is in full swing and I am adjusting quite well...giggles!!!!! I AM LOVIN' IT! I am able to give a little TLC to all of the things that I enjoy doing but get pushed to the side during the fast paced school year.  One of my absolute faves is getting new ideas and creating for my classroom. (Of course that time is split with several of my other faves...sleeping in, creating for my home, and time with the fam!) However, I quickly find myself scattered all over this pink laptop of mine with a bajillion ideas floating around in my head. I would imagine it looks something like a confetti of clipart, bright colors, blog reading lists, pin boards, at the moment tons of chevron & quatrefoil print, and of course the sparkliest glitter you've ever seen. I have GOT to get all of this confetti from my brain organized into some nice color coded files. Well here's the plan...I've created a little schedule to hopefully keep me on track and actually get results.

The inspiration...this fabulous little summer schedule from www.somewhatsimple.com that I've seen sprinkled all over pinboards and that I totally plan to incorporate when I'm wearing my domestic hat...

And now...A Blogger's Schedule to a Productive Summer...

I realize that it doesn't have the cute little alliteration that the summer schedule provides, BUT I really think it's going to work for me!  Here's a little commentary to the thought process of this little gem.

Get Inspired Monday: There are so many amazing ideas out there. My "Teacher Style" pinbaord is loaded with pins of activities I'd love to incorporate or adapt to fit my classroom.  On Mondays I hope to just choose 1 for the week to actually get started.

Create It Tuesday: What I wanted to say for the description was...grab your favorite beverage, get your favorite Scentsy scent going, turn on a little reality tv, and get to work (checking Pinterest one more time because you KNOW something else wonderful has been pinned). For me, this scenario looks something like this...a chai latte in my leopard print mug, coconut lemongrass in my Scentsy, and housewives of something on my tv!

Craft It Wednesday: I love adding printed ribbon, tissue poms, and of course a little glitter to whatever it is I want to display. (maybe you should check Pinterest on a break just to keep you going...since you're on your computer already, might as well take a quick look at your blog reading list too...giggles!)

Share It Thursday: I know that many blog more than once a week and that is fabulous!! Blog on! However, I'd like to be a little more consistent. And let's be honest, if we ALL blogged only on Thursdays blog stalking would be a little less exciting. Make it work for you.

Read All About It Friday!: I've got to get better at answering questions, responding to comments, and answering emails! (apologies for anyone awaiting a reply...lol!) This will also be the day I do a little reading for professional development. (and probably check Pinterest one more time!)

Well that's it in a nutshell.  Just a little organizational inspiration! Have a productive summer and I hope this helps at least a handful of busy bloggers like me!

I just read your whole blog and posted a bunch! Thanks for the ideas. I see that I can follow your blog but you don't have the button to get it emailed to me. I never remember to go to blogs I like. I just like them in my inbox to read and get ideas. I know other blogs have it, I would love to do it!!
