Make Yourself at Home-Guest Blogger Tammy

Hi.  My name is Tammy.  I'm in charge of a little blog called Forever in First, and I'm thoroughly honored to fill in for Natalie while she's having the time of her life in Japan.  I've never been a guest blogger, so I really do think this is about the coolest thing ever.  Here goes...

I suppose this is an odd time of year to share this post, but as they say, better late than never.  Last August was forever ago, but I remember how I spent a few days of it - on a hunt for 20-something cheap garage sale frames.  Those few days were also spent with a can of black spray paint in hand as well.  Why the frames and paint?  Look below.   

Sprinkled throughout my room are pictures of my kids - on countertops, on tables, on walls, and on shelves.  I hope it sends the message, "This is your place as well as mine. We're one big happy family, so make yourself at home."  

At the beginning of the year I sent home a letter asking parents for help.

Although I love a nice pat on the back every so often, this one belongs to The Sisters.  I'm fairly confident they'd love that I'm passing it along to you though.  


  1. What a fabulous idea!! Definitely saving this for next year in my classroom.

  4. I love this idea. I loop so next year I'll have the same kids. How cool would it be to use pictures that we took last year and put them around the room. Thanks for sharing this awesome idea!
