Woodland Animal Birthday Party


I love decorating for birthday parties as much as I love classrooms! Making the day extra special for my children brings me so much joy.  I love seeing their excitement and hope to create memories that they will remember forever. My daughter, Eden, had her 5th birthday party right smack in the middle of my […]

My New Classroom


I’m teaching Kindergarten next year!  Woohoo! Just a recap of my last six months (in a nutshell)… 1.  My husband is a principal and his Kindergarten teacher resigned in January. 2.  I ended up taking over for the rest of the year as the long term sub. 3.  I decided that I wanted to stay […]

Varsity Prep

Varsity Prep Inspiration:  This is my husband’s office.  He is a principal at a Catholic school in my hometown.  Our story is a long one, however, the inspiration for this room…not so much. He loves sports.  Period.  I was hoping he would do something fun and crazy, but that’s not his personality.  While we were […]

Chalkboard and Polka Dots


Chalkboard and Polka Dot Inspiration:  Two years ago, I created the first chalkboard classroom decor collection!  There wasn’t anything on the market like it.  I was SO proud and so excited to offer this classroom classic!  Fast forward to now, there are several chalkboard collections on the market that you could choose from, however, none […]

Hello, Sunshine!  Inspiration:  When I moved into my new house, I stopped at this adorable home decor shop in my town.  When I walked in, I was instantly drawn to this iron sign that said, “Hello, Sunshine.”  It was one of those moments where you knew you HAD to have it…I was not walking out […]

Hooray for Hollywood!


Hollywood Inspiration:  This has been one of my most requested themes since the beginning of Schoolgirl Style.  When I envisioned a Hollywood theme, I always thought of a color combo of red and black.  Quite frankly, the whole thing was turning me off.  It felt too typical…too predictable.  I enjoy being different, so I held […]

Oxford Blue


Oxford Blue Inspiration:  Navy was the biggest color trend this year!  Every time I turned around, another big brand was featuring their products in this pretty shade of blue.  One day, I went on the Kate Spade website and they were featuring all of their new arrivals.  As I predicted, almost every single product was blue. […]

Happy Rainbow


Happy Rainbow Inspiration:  Do you remember the room that I designed for Maria Manore from Kinder Craze?  Oh my goodness!  Everyone LOVED this collection!  Maria did an amazing job putting this room together and she created such a beautiful learning environment for her Kindergarten students. Here is a photo… To see Maria’s entire room, click HERE There […]

Midnight Orchid and Tickle Me Pink Paisley

Paisley Inspiration:  First of all, there is nothing that I love more than a pretty paisley pattern (well, maybe polka dots), but paisley comes in a very close second.  The inspiration for this collection was simple…I love the combination of purple, turquoise, lime, and black.  I knew that this trendy color combo had to include […]
