CuRrEnTLy, PLUG another, & creations

Can you believe it is AUGUST...
where did it all go?
some of you are already back in school
(((moment of quiet for them)))
I still have a week before I go back...
and what does the start of AUGUST bring us...

 OK B2S must haves (back to school must haves)...
pick up to 3 things that you have to have to go back to school...

a personal laminator...
OMGEE where have you been all my life...
I just ordered one this summer and I am in PUFFY HEART LOVE...
this thing is ah-mazing
here is the one I ordered!!!

I am telling you this thing is AWESOME...
I even named it... NATE...
NATE and I have a great relationship..
he puts on a thick lamination and I smile

if you read my blog... you KNOW I love me some Jeff Anderson...
I get to see him AGAIN... giddy with glee FO SHO

anywho... his newest book is my book of the summer and it is a great resource 
if you want  a great resource for mentor texts and easy to implement ideas... this is the book for you... it is a SUPER easy read and full of life changing ideas... seriously I have said this before and I will say it again... his books have changed my life as a teacher... teaching writing is such a joy now!!!

I LOVE mustaches... duh
and I want everything mustache...
here is your oppurtunity to promote ALL of your mustache stuff!!!
link it up on the mustache linky (yes i am having 2 linkies in this post... it's my bloggy and and I can have 2 linkies if I want to... LOL)...
BUT really...
you would be amazed how many people contact me about doing a mustache theme in their room... like me... LOVE IT

I had to add this because I have had several people link their Currently up here and I got all excited about all the mustache stuff and then there was no mustache stuff... whaaaa
so here is the MUSTACHE LINKY PARTY...
please link directly to your item in your store... link as many times as you need (no duplicates please)

OK now back to currently...
here is your template...

1. RULE OF 3... if you link up I ask that you go and look at the 2 in front of your link and the one after you AND comment... this SPREADS the LOVE for sure!!! and it was a HUGE success last time :)

2. on the B2S must haves... I am completely OK with you promoting one of your store items HERE... BUT if you promote one of yours I am asking that you also promote someone else too... so if you think you have an item that someone JUST has to have for B2S go ahead and PLUG IT but please PLUG from another store too...

3.  there are several people that have fab tutorials on how to create a Currently and link it back...
Jen is one of them... if you are not sure how to do this ... please PLEASE head on over to
 OK 3 rules... that is it.. and they are pretty easy...
and now bring on the linky...

OH my gosh ... I have one more thing... I need to post the winner for my ETA give away... HOLLA
so and the WINNER IS.....

a Rafflecopter giveaway
that about wraps this up... hope you made it to the end... 
if you did i wanted to direct you to the TOP of my page..... 
where it says... CREATIONS... well on that page you will find some of my freebies... I am in the process of adding more so keep checking back
and THANKS so much for showing me so much LOVE...
last Currently there were OVER 300 links... WOZERS.. 
 LOVE YOU ALL and hope you have a FANTABURIFIC weekend...
OH I almost forgot to show you my new phone case...
I am slightly obsessed with the Olympics and so this just fuels my obsession... 
hey I needed a new cover and this one was just there and it looked at me and said
and I said
YES I DO ... get in my basket...
plus I am mending my broken heart because that Mango Tango Jeep SOLD
the day before we were going to go GET IT!!! 
double *tear* *tear*
pretty sure HUBS appreciates that a phone case is helping my heart mend... that and watching the 
men swim... I mean COME on...  I got to do what I got to do and those boys are CAAAAA UTE!!!



  1. Okay, I have to say it. I don't get the mustaches!! They are so cute and yet so random. Where on earth did they come from??

  4. I was hoping that there would be a Currently up here! I threw a little man baby shower for one of my best friends. We had straws that had mustaches on it! So CUTE! Have you seen those blenders that blend EVERYTHING, Vitamix? They are CRAZY expensive... my sister in law has one and it is AMAZING! Thanks for hosting this linky!

  6. I just came across your blog through your Currently link and I am so glad I did! What a fun place it is! I love all your mustache things. Last year my friends and I had a Mustache Bash for the July birthday kids. It was hilarious to see everyone in real or fake mustaches!

    I hope you can come visit my blog!

    1. Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one who linked up on the wrong linky first! Sorry, Farley! Is there a way to delete the wrong link-up?

  14. Hi! Love Linky time, but I have to say I did it wrong too :( #7 in mustache should go. I thought I saw 22 posts when I worked on it and then there was 7 as I scrolled up and down, on a MAC (which I love but don't have so it was a little crazy). To make my story worse was I trying to post for my sister Andi (she was traveling and I said I'd help)... and now we are 93, oh dear, I might get fired. As I was trying to get tech help from my mom, all she could say was "But I'm confused, Who is Farley?" Duh... Our favorite Linky Lady! And my sister specifically said MAKE SURE YOU READ ALL OF THE RULES. It was the scrolling I tell you, I'm getting old! Thanks for the Linky Fun and all of the adventures from there!

  15. I just joined your linky party #2, My daughter's teacher last year had mustaches on sticks at her wedding for her guests to take pictures with, it was very 40's. I like your rules, I am having a linky for classroom design and bulletin board ideas, and never thought to have rules. Well when you get in your room, I would love for you to share your mustache theme at my little Linky party.

  16. I totally agree with the laminator!! I just bought mine a few weeks ago & I'm totally obsessed with it. It has been a great addition to my teaching life! :)
    Learning Is Something to Treasure

  17. Ugh I can't wait to get my own laminator! I am so jealous of you!!


  18. Absolutely love the CURRENTLY idea! Genius. This will be my first time linking up! Thanks! I am your newest follower!

  20. I'm new to this and don't know how to add text to the mustache back to school list... could you send me instructions? I LOVE (huge heart) your site, especially your humor, links, and block parties!

    Have a great day!

  21. Just linked up my currently! Love reading these! I also am ending up with a rather long B2S must have LIST!! So, thanks?? or Are you just making me LONG for more stuff.. lol.
    Hope all is well!
    Your posts are always so dang entertaining to read!

  22. Love your blog! Would link up but I'm still trying to figure out this whole blog thing....I LOVE my laminator and paper cutter!

  23. LOL, no B2S for me....your mamma is always, I love reading your blog and comments. So many creative folks out there in the blog world of teachers.

  24. I cannot believe YOUR mango tango jeep sold!!! It was so you!

  25. Farley - I figured it out. Sorry for having a techie 'duh' moment. Thanks again!

  26. Love your currentlys. I love, love, love having a laminator and my Vitamix is amazing. It blends so well and even makes protein shakes taste YUMMY. Never icy just smooth.

  27. Farley...I am going to try to link up. I'm new to blogging so this is all new to me. I am working on it, I don't quite have it figured out yet. I went over to the Teacher's Cauldron and I am trying to follow her steps. I am so excited about my progress I had to stop and comment. I just know if you taught in my building we would be friends. I use ... and !!! way too much myself (my mom is an author and when I get her to edit my posts she always tells me to take them out. I don't, she grunts. lol).

  30. Ahhh, yes I am a little obsessed with the Olympics too. That case is awesome!! I am so sad that swimming is over. When I saw Michael Phelps getting all emotional during his final medal ceremony, I was getting emotional too. I am so unbelievably sad. :-( At least there is still gymnastics!!

  31. Love your case! I am also loving the Olympics too! I look forward to reading all the "Currently" posts each month.

  35. Farley..I failed at this ....ignore my link up on the mustache part...AND B2S part I was lost, jetlagged really...

  38. Hello there,

    I was wondering if you know of any Spanish teachers who have blogs out there? I have been looking but haven't really found any worth spending time looking at. I will be teaching elementary spanish as a specials teacher this next year and am looking for ideas :)

    Thanks for any help!


  39. This was my first Currently! Thanks for posting. I LOVE your blog! :)


  40. This is my first one, YAY!

    I am so glad I found your blog, it's been an awesome find! And yay to the tutorial haha

  41. Farley,

    April over at Classroom Celebrations has designed some really neat mustache things for back to school night. I immediately thought of you when I stumbled across her blog. Go here to check it out! Enjoy!

  42. Sorry but I think I put a linky on the mustache one by mistake. I added it to the currently too. So my mustache linky won't have anything mustachy.


  43. I have that laminator and it is wonderful! I am slightly obsessed! :)


  44. I have a lot of new thinking, but always do not have the stamina to complete them.

  45. I have been MIA for the summer and am now just catching up on my blog!
    I have that laminator as well...bought it at Wal-mart last year for about $25 dollars and it has SO paid for itself already! I (and a bunch of my fellow teachers) just adore it!

    BTW, thanks for always doing the 'Currently' Linky Parties...even if I don't get a chance to do it, it sure is fun to read some of them!


  46. Ordered pcv valve, it'll be here on the 19th, buying egr valve next mo. What about MAP sensor? As far as I know, these nissan key programmer things have never been changed. I believe there was about 60 some k miles on her when I got her.Oh. Also, last month had a guy rig me a horn from the horn under.launch x431 diagun hood bypassing the one in wheel. Husband was mad 2 years ago n punched wheel breaking horn. Didn't wanna shell out that $$ for whole new wheel. Horn box is snug next to purge solenoid. And he did something in fuse box... Don't know what. But are there any fuses involved in the systems here? As in the nvld or something?

  47. Best of luck . i hope that the money will not adjust you guys as well as the firm . help save in which pertaining to consume and some other waste money . don’t allow it to drip up to your products
