DIY: "Stained Glass" Window

I work as an assistant teacher in the preschool room at an elementary school.
It keeps me hopping all day! There's never a dull moment in preschool!
I've been able to help tune-out some distractions with a SWEET window cover.
I got the idea from FamilyFun.com and tweaked it just a little. =)
 I started out with a BUNCH of tissue paper that I cut into random triangles, trapezoids, etc.
 Then, I used a regular old glue stick and started putting the paper on the window itself.
{The original idea has it on plastic wrap for easy clean-up but I needed something more permanent.
Mine comes off with a little soap and water at the end of the school year.}
Here's a closer look:
Our door looks pretty cool from the outside!
We get lots of oohs and ahhs from older classes passing by {but without the distraction of seeing them!}.
 I LOVE how it looks inside the room when the sun is shining!
It took a little time and effort but it was well worth it!

Where will you put this?

T-Moblie AZ Summer Party

I had the opportunity to attend an AZ Bloggers event at my local T-Mobile store. It was so much fun! It was hosted by Jamielyn at I {heart} Nap Time so you know it was awesome!

I had to borrow some of Jamielyn's pix because I was so busy playing that I forgot about using my camera.
We ate delicious food,
played lots of hilarious games,
and learned about T-Mobile's Family Plans & Apps like FamilyWhere check-in, Web Guard, Family Allowances and Lookout Mobile Security. You can find out more about T-Mobile on their website, facebook or twitter.

It was so nice to meet so many other AZ Bloggers! The hashtags for the night were #TMobileSummer and #AZ. We had fun tweeting throughout the night.
I met Kristyn from Lil' Luna, Heather from Kustom Kissers, Kelli from Lolly Jane,
and several other Arizona bloggers.
And I got to hang out with my friends Jenna {From Eve} and Jamielyn, The Hostess {Nap Time}

I was lucky enough to win one of the amazing prizes that night! I was so surprised; I never win anything!
Thank you T-Mobile and I Heart Nap Time for such a fabulous evening. =)
