Five for Friday {Linky Party.. June 28th}

 
fiveforfriday
Hello Friday! Friday’s don’t have that magical feel in the summer like they do during the school year! HA! Right now, it is just a reminder of how FAST my summer break is flying by! I know some of you are just finishing up school so you don’t feel the panic yet. But, I have just over a month of summer break left.
 
I also have an announcement about the Five for Friday linky at the bottom of this post.. make sure you check out what is going on!
 
Post your five random things from this week and link up below!
 

 
We had our last art class at our local library this week.

This week the project was a fun little apple with a worm inside. We had a great time and the end results were cute!

I also spent a few afternoons this week helping to unpack and organize new books! Exciting stuff! New books always make me happy.

I have three students that had birthdays this week- so I mailed off their birthday treats. I included their birthday tag that would have been on our class calendar if we were in school, a pack of Fun Dip and a birthday sticker inside a birthday card. Fun Dip is the perfect treat to mail because it does not take up much room in the envelope.

I have been working on new notebook designs for my Doodle Bugs Paper website.. and I “released” them this week. I am really happy with the 24 new designs! I would love for you to check them out too! They are 6x9 inches, 80 lined pages inside, top spiral.. personalized just for you! I am in love!

I took advantage of Oriental Trading’s free shipping deal last week and stocked up on my favorite stickers. Love these!
 


 

.. and for the Five for Friday news! I am taking the month of July off from the linky party. The Five for Friday party will be back on Friday, August 2nd.

 
But, don’t worry.. My friend Cara is going to keep the Friday Linky Party going in July with a favorite pins link up. So, for the next four weeks link up on her blog with your favorite pins from Pinterest! See you there!

Those art projects were super cute!! Thanks for sharing!! We will also miss linking up in July; however, we will enjoy the favorite pins link-up. We started a Wednesday link up called Wednesday Wisdom, but we are only doing it over the summer. Enjoy your break!! Thanks for a great linky!!

I was soooo disappointed when I read that Five for Friday was not going to be active during July... happy for you, though, taking time off! I love reading about everyone's weeks and I just joined in myself last week. However... PINS!!!! YES! Thanks for continuing the Friday linky and thanks to Cara for filling in.

Thanks for doing the Five for Friday every week! It really helps me to look at what I've managed to accomplish, when it feels like I'm in disorganized. I'll miss it in July!
I love your notebooks.. so cute
