Erasable Office Supplies

If there’s one thing that makes teachers happy it’s new office supplies.  When I saw these from Shoplet I knew I wanted to check them out!  I was not let down.  They’re ERASABLE!

Monday Made It: DIY Share Chair

I’m linking up for my first ever Monday Made It.  I’m not the crafty type.  As much as I want to be, and I want to be successful, I just don’t have the crafty gene.  Most of my stuff is worthy of being on Pinterest Fail.  I try and I try and I try and I try.  And it just never quite comes out the way it should.  So I generally don’t care to share
