Tuesday Tried It- Pinterest Product

It's Tuesday, time for  Tuesday Tried It with Holly over at The Fourth Grade Flipper.

This is one of my favorite linky parties, but I will admit, I have a love/hate relationship with it.

First, it keeps me trying new things, which is fabulous!

Second, it lengthens my to do list each week! I see such amazing things from some really amazing teachers. I love that, but I hate adding to my to do list. (sort of)

It's kind of like Pinterest for me. I spend a LOT of time on Pinterest. I pin a lot of stuff. I attempt to make a lot of stuff. I have made a gazillion recipes from there. I haven't liked a gazillion though.

I attempted to make a no sew workout shirt. I cannot wear it out of the house. My husband thinks I should not wear it inside the house.

My products rarely look like what I have pinned. Some times its an epic fail. But, I am addicted and I just keep pinning!

Saw this on Pinterest and loved it.
Elementary and Middle School Inspirational Back To School Bulletin Board Idea

This was easy. I made it, laminated it and hung it up for my summer school classroom.

This was a Pinterest Success Story!

Can I count Summer School as a Tried It? I just finished my first day of summer school. I say, SUCCESS!
I am teaching 5th grade Math. I have three sections, less than ten kids in each. IT IS AWESOME! Today was definitely the honeymoon stage. They were perfect!

I am really enjoying the staff as well. Most our from the three elementary schools in our town. They are so nice and fun to be around. Plus, it is cool to work in a different school. I am in a super old building, which is also kind of different for me. I am really glad I signed up. Ask me in one month if I feel the same though.

Happy Tuesday everyone!


  1. Wowzer! Summer school is a month??? Ours is only 10 days. Good luck!

  2. Oh my, you had me nodding my head and then laughing out loud at the beginning of this post! I too have a love/hate relationship with my OWN linky! I love all the new ideas BUT it sometimes gives me a little anxiety of all the things I am adding to my to-do list!!! A no sew workout shirt? haha! THat is right up my alley with my no sew curtains!
    I love, love your inspirational sayings on your door! Summer school? Wow! I hope you can recharge your batteries soon:)

  4. I can totally identify with your feelings about this linky! Every week I look through the posts and keep nodding my head and adding things to my list (and Pin boards). Have you ever checked out the site http://pinstrosity.blogspot.com/ ? Be prepared because it is a black hole you will get sucked into...but I can promise it will make you 1) laugh and 2) feel like you are Pinterest super star!!
    Love the door! I did a version of this for my room at the beginning of this past school year and got tons of compliments on it. Good luck with summer school!
