Five for Friday Link Up

Happy Friday, y'all!!!

Today, I'm linking up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for my very first link up!!! YAY!!

I am super excited about my NEW lightbox to help me take better quality photos of my products 'in action.' My husband and I (well- mainly my hubby) built a lightbox after I got tired off fighting with horrible lighting! In my blog post, I give step-by-step procedures for how to build the lightbox! It was super easy, and it cost LESS THAN $40. Check out my blog post on How to Build Your Own DIY Lightbox.
We had a fantastic time on the Fourth of July!! My son LOVES building random things out of PVC pipe. In fact, two years ago for his birthday, he wanted PVC pipe!! A day or two before the Fourth, he bought bigger PVC pipe and made a gigantic bazooka. My husband got this BRIGHT idea to put a smoke bomb in the bazooka. As you can see above, my son had a blast with it (but now the inside of the bazooka is a jumble of nasty colors)!

I FINALLY finished 'The Fifth Wave' series. If you haven't read the trilogy, you're missing out! There are lots of books on my wish list to read, but there's not enough time in the day!

I just signed up for TrafficWonker which is a lot like Tailwind. I just started adding pins to the scheduler, which starts pinning this Sunday. I am super excited to see how it saves me time as well as how it helps with gaining followers and repins. OH YEA... I almost forgot to mention... It's FREE!!!
Last, but not least, I posted my first BUNDLE on TPT!!!! Woo Hoo!! I have been working on science task cards that I can use with my students this next school year! My students are absolutely going to love using these task cards because they can use a QR code reader to check their answers.  AND who doesn't love using technology!!!!

Thanks for reading, friends!!! Have a fantastic weekend!!


  1. Courtney,
    Love your lightbox. I'll have to check out your post on how to make one. I'm excited to see what you think of Trafficwonker. I'm new to this whole planning pins thing and will look into it too! Have a great weekend!
