{glitter gift} #sol16

A week ago I celebrated my birthday.  It was a big birthday of sorts.  After living with that birthday for a week, it really seems as if not much has changed.  

Another year, another number.  I guess I'm good with being forty {sigh}.

This weekend I was lucky enough to meet up with a dear friend and fellow slicer.  She gave me one of the best birthday gifts ...



My very own sparkly and purply and glittery board (with a side of delicious chocolate).  

I remembered seeing visions of the fabulous #glitterboards on Twitter mentioned by the always sharing and inspiring JoEllen McCarthy.




It didn't take me long to find the perfect spot in my classroom, right by my door and across from my classroom library, to share words of insight and inspiration.



Thank you, Chris, for one of my favorite birthday gifts that will bring me -- and all those that visit my classroom -- the joy and power of words!  And, of course, a little reminder of you ... every day!

  12. Happy birthday. Great friend and a great gift! I love the idea of a glitter board with changing quotes. Sometimes I write student quotes on the white board ("Thinking is a great tool.")and it would be fun to have a more dynamic, glitzy setting. Neil Gaiman is eminently quotable, isn't he?

  14. You are very welcome - of course the glitter board had to be purple! May you have an excellent decade!

  15. Humm...glitter boards, that's new to me and I like it. I really like it. You have even found the perfect quote to place on it and the perfect place to share that quote. About that {forty sigh}...been there, done that. No worries, it's all good and you'll be fine.

  17. I know that at certain age ( just kidding) the gifts don't matter so much any more but sometimes some gifts are wonderful to get. The glitter board will lift your mood for a long time.
