Currently and Saturday Snapshots

Thanks Farley for hosting



Tips, Tricks or Hints
Well, today I'm starting Saturday Snapshots to share photography tips, cool photography apps, and shots from my life. I'd love for you to link up sharing any photos that you would like. They don't have to be recent! It could be wordless... It's going to be open for sharing moments/memories that you feel are worth sharing. Since Five for Friday is going on a hiatus for the summer... feel free to share random photos of your week. 


Saturday Snapshots is about your life. It is about capturing, documenting, and preserving all that is important to us.
I want you to be more attentive to the everyday things that make up your life … instead of only focusing on the big moments.


Some ideas to record

Photograph your routine
Capture the milestones
Your favorite hangout spot
A favorite piece of furniture
Favorite school snack
Projects
Favorite piece of clothing
Your purse/teaching bag
Your family
Self-portrait
Inside your car
Work outfits
Books your reading
Your city’s landmarks
Food photos
Pet portraits
A current love

 I think my obsession started when I got my first  DSLR. Now it's a hobby! Here are some tips that I typed up to share with you. 



And...here are my Saturday Snapshots


 Grab the button and come link up!


Favorite new photography apps





Instagram-I'm loving the video portion. Take a picture or video, choose a filter to transform its look and feel, then post to Instagram — it's that easy. You can even share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and more. It's a new way to see the world.

Snap Chat-Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless your friend takes a screenshot!





Pip Camera-PIP Camera is the best companion for self-snapshots! Make your photos extra fun with creative shots!

Saturday Snapshots


Just love this commercial! It's so me!


I've recently been obsessed with photographs and preserving memories. I think it's super important to document life. We do not remember the days... we remember the moments is my new motto. I love documenting every aspect of life. My resolution this year was to take at least 5 photos a week. I try to take as many pictures of my students to create scrapbooks and end of the year dvds for the families to cherish.

Monday Made It -Freebies for the Early Birds and Giveaway



I promise I'm going to stop with all the chalkboard accessories next week. :)
I have some fun Monday Made It's in store the rest of the summer but TODAY I had to complete my chalkboard obsession. These ideas are really nothing new as I made them last year for my Monday Made Its. They just needed some updating. 

I have some freebies for you all too! You will have to go look in my tpt store. Let's just say there are a lot of chalkboard items. These files will be free until I wake up from my Monday morning nap.
 Bonus *** Leave feedback on tpt and come back and leave your email for a chance to win some Seeds of Happiness Seeds.  I'll announce winner on Tuesday!


I updated my hand signals. These little guys worked wonders last year. I have included many different versions because everyone has different hand signals. The file also has some multicultural hands for you to pick and choose.




My transportation chart was a HUGE hit last year. I think I customized at least 200 for you lovely fans. Each school had some very unique clubs and after-school programs.This year I made the file editable. You may add all the after school care names you would like. 




Look at these fun calendar items I scored over the weekend. The framed one is from TJ Maxx and the paper calendar was on a Target Clearance Aisle. I need to go to Hobby Lobby and Michaels to get some fabric and ribbon. I need a little section to display the new calendar items. I'm hoping to redo my bulletin board soon. I'll post some pics as soon as they are finished.


Do you have a Kirkland's? This little chalkboard hanger was $9.99. 


Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday. I'll be back to see who left feedback. Winner of the seeds will be announced tomorrow! Thanks Tara for hosting.










I do sell the seeds if interested. Just email me or comment to order. I can send a paypal invoice.

Bag of ten seeds $18
Large seed $18
