Five for Friday (already)!!!

I'm not complaining but this week seemed to fly by!!  I can't believe it's already Friday and you know what that means... Five for Friday.  I'm linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs for her weekly linky party.
1. This sweet little puppy is chewing everything!  Everything except his toys!!  It's been years since I have trained a puppy.  Talk about a full time job!  

2. A WONDERFUL teacher at my building is retiring this year, so I'm painting a table for her.  I usually don't get around to painting until summer.  I forgot how much I enjoy making a plain piece of furniture come to life!  Here's a sneak peak...

3. I got the chance to go and see my classroom for next year.  Right now it is being used for our corporation's weekly high ability pull out program.  It's such a huge room and a blank canvas!  I can't wait to decorate!

4. I'm almost finished with my Math Mats for grades 3-5.  Hopefully I'll have it ready to go by the end of the weekend.  Stay tuned!

5. Last but not least... we have 19 days of school left!!  I must be getting old because this has been the fastest school year yet!  How many days do you have left?


  1. Aimee, the table you are painting is fabulous! Your teacher friend will love it! We have 28 days left of school. It has flown by and I can't believe summer is around the corner-CRAZY!

  3. 31 Days left (5 Monday's). Aimee, seriously I have an entire extra dining room suite that I wish you could come over & help me paint!! I love your creations!! Maybe this summer you could do a quick tutorial and let me know what kind of paint to buy and how to do different colors on the spindles.

    1. A whole dining room suite! My dream! I keep hoping that I'll find one at a rummage sale but never do. I don't use the little bottles of paint that you get at the crafts stores. I buy the sample jars of paint from stores like Lowes. They're inexpensive and thicker than the little bottles.

  4. 19???!!! I have a million left. I think. :)
    This is all so exciting! I love your blank canvas room and your artistic abilities!

  7. Wow, that room looks like it will be a blast to decorate! We have 34 more days left, but I'm mainly counting down to state tests right now. After that, my year is basically over.
