I'm new around here!

Hi Friends!
Allow me to introduce myself. I'm Denise and I write a little blog called Sunny Days in Second Grade. I've been teaching for 17 years and I'm also married to another teacher, so we talk shop - a lot! I also have a Teachers Pay Teachers store so I spend lots of time developing items for my store and freebies for my blog. Long before I started my blog and TpT endeavors, I was a big crafter. I spent many weekends selling my goodies at local craft shows, in local stores and even had my own Etsy shop. Although I still have a deep, deep love for crafting, I think spending my time on all things education related has kind of moved into first place. However, craftiness is still a big part of me and I've found lots of ways to incorporate my love of crafts into my classroom. As you can see, this blog is the perfect fit for me!

Here's a shot of my happy place. This is my craft room (when it's all neat and pretty, which is definitely NOT the norm...)

Here's a "vintage" post from my blog to give you an idea of how I blend my love of crafts with teaching and school related things. Click {HERE} to see how I altered the Altoids tins in the pictures below. They make perfect gift boxes and they're great to store small pieces for games.
I'll be popping in from time to time to share some of my crafty creations, so I'll see you soon.
Stay crafty, my friends!


  1. I'm jealous of your happy place!!!!!

    My dream is to have one room in the house just for myself with a cozy library area & craft area!
