Call Me Crazy 'Cause I Am!


This reminds me of a little kid getting ready for the first day of school. However, I am a grown-up (at times) and I am getting ready for our book study! I am so excited to have a binder ready with a fancy cover (I love to label everything in sight) and I bought a few other exciting supplies...
1. Page protectors from Costco - best quality for cheapest price
2. Tabs because I am serioulsy addicted to them and I can't control myself. Check out the ones with numbers (OMG).
3. Binder Pockets to hold stuff that I download and make (OMG again)
Now, have I left anything out? Hummmmm... Let me know if you can think of anything.
Now if you want a fancy cover I am giving one away!  Click here to get a fancy binder cover from me! If you prefer blue I am providing that too. Click here for the blue version!
Oh yes, Deedee Wills made the best and cutest bookmark so grab it and use it in your book. She is so clever. Click on this picture!

Yeah you...a girl after my own heart! I have ordered the book and I am waiting (not so patiently) for it to arrive. Now I am inspired to set up my own binder while I wait!

Too funny. I went out and bought a binder and some cue cards today. Love the tabs. Might have to pick up some of them too. I started the book. Had to get the ecopy as it'S not available here in Canada yet at my local teachers store.

Beads! I have a TON of beads left from various projects over the years. It's amazing how much they love to sort them---and fascinating to watch their thought processes!

Fabuloso! I've already read the first two chapters, have taken notes, and can't hardly wait for the blog posts to begin! This binder cover is perfect to hold my ideas and resources. :)

Thanks for all of the inspiration. I am definitely getting the book, but I am teaching until the end of June besides completing an MS degree with my final 6 credits. I will certainly be following what you are doing. Thanks for energizing me, really. R

Why is that binders, rubbermaid, and smelly markers make teachers go weak in the knees?! I could swim in a bed of binders. My husband just loves that I have now started bring my love of binders home. I have made a few just to help keep me organized at home! I have even put my daughter's toys in labeled rubbermaid tubs! I love your generosity and all the support you are giving teachers! You are pumping me up for the first day of school!!! Thank you!!
