Something New Sunday: Fabulous Finds LINKY!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!! I hope you have all had a fabulously blessed day and weekend. 

Any of you have to work tomorrow? I will be enjoying my day off with my kids. Not sure EXACTLY what we will do, but whatever it is will be OUTSIDE! The weather here in AZ is just amazing right now.
Gorgeous days to get outside!!!

OK, so, it's SUNDAY, and today is the day I share SOMETHING NEW!

This is perfect timing because I can link it up with Fluttering Through First's LINKY!

They have this cute linky party to share something NEW that you've been using this year at school or in your house (in the NEW YEAR).

I'll start with HOME:
With the new year, I've been working on some new products, projects, and digital scrapbooks. I have spent LOTS of money on digital papers and backgrounds and then finally decided it was time to start making my own!
I purchased the Photoshop Elements and absolutely L-O-V-E it! It has taken some time to get used to, but I have made some really fun backgrounds and have had fun making them!


I've also started running, well...trying to run. I've worked my way up to running/walking in 5 to 7 minute intervals. With all the running I've done in the past couple weeks, I've quickly learned that my current running shoes are not going to last much longer. 

SO, technically I haven't bought these yet, BUT, they are going in my "cart" online TOMORROW!
They are the Saucony Triumph 7 and have really good cushioning, which I really need! So ready to get new shoes!

OH, and one more thing!
I'm not much of a make-up person...I wear makeup, but I'm a minimalist. I like to look like I have on only a tiny bit. The problem is...being a minimalist...I don't put on a lot, and then, by the end of a long day of teaching it looks like I have NONE on! 
It all just slowly fades away....

IN WALKS my NEWEST addition to my makeup routine:
MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer
I got this Primer from Make Up For Ever from Sephora! It basically creates a clean, nourished "canvas" on my face before I put on my foundation and helps everything "STICK" longer. AND, it totally lives up to it's claim! 

Now, in my other life...at school:

One of my most recent purchases was a packet of Laminating Pouches! I've NEVER used laminating pouches before...just the laminating machines with the big rolls.

So, having these are going to make things a bit easier when I have small/quick projects! 
Classroom Laminating Machine

What else is new at school???? Not much! LOL...in fact, I've been pretty boring lately with my classroom purchases. The only exciting things have been my newest TpT purchases~ Ha!

What about you guys??? Anything new?? Go link up! Just click the LINKY button up top!

  3. Alright Marie-we've been eying those personal laminators... We have a big one at school but when we're working on the stuff at home it seems like it would come in handy. You may have sold us on it!
    Thanks so much for linking up with us!

  4. The shoes are very cute! I applaud your running regimen. I will have to check out that Sephora primer-I'm very simple with the make-up I wear too, but it would be nice if what I did wear lasted longer! :)
