Order a swatch to verify your favorite color! I ordered a few, and found the colors were fairly true to form – but it did give me peace of mind to see it in person! They include multiple types of fabric on one swatch.
There is a new Star Wars movie coming out! It’s going to be called “The Force Awakens.” In honor of that, I am posting about the “May the Fourth” Party I helped host!
If you don’t know, May 4th is Star Wars Day (get it? May the force FOURTH be with you! If you don’t get it, you may need to have a Star Wars marathon!). The

Enjoy! I love to hear comments of how you’ve done your Star Wars Party!
I work with deaf and hard-of-hearing students of all different ages and levels. I use Bitsboard with so many different levels and ages of kids (currently 3-year-old to 8th grade). It’s a must-have app for teachers! I’ve used to to introduce topics (school objects, actions words, sight words), auditory training (animal sounds, Ling sound check, environmental sounds), and to support vocaublary in the classroom. This app is amazingly free and incredible!
The basic concept: Create or download a set of flash cards, called a “board.” Each flash cards consists of a picture and a word. You can add your own pictures or select one from the app.
The app includes a number of games that can be used with any “board.” Every update has seen more new games, and they’re always awesome!
With the new update, you can also add different users. This will be great for me, since I work with many different students – I can track their progress and more!

I really enjoy scrapbooking. I have a terrible memory, but I love to remember. Therefore, I take a pretty good amount of pictures and scrapbook them. Scrapbooking is also my “creative” outlet. I typically have to find creativity. I am not one of those people who can just come up with things on my own. I also love to organize. It took me a while to get my scrapbooking area into a way that works for me, but it’s almost there! I was chatting with my aunt about the chaos I had to organize before I could even start scrapbooking and decided to write it all out! I am one to search for ways to organize better, to scrapbook better. I figured, why not share with others out there who may need the help too! I’ll probably end up posting about cooking, baking, and other projects as well. But I will start with my organization of photos and scrapbook stuffs.
