Happy Anniversary, Flannel Friday!

ff-birthdayHappy 3rd anniversary, Flannel Friday!!!

I can’t even begin to express my appreciation for Flannel Friday and what it has done for me. You guys *saved* me when it came to professional learning and development. My first library was very small and for a number of more recent years, I was the only degree-holding children’s librarian. Flannel Friday and the contacts I made from it are invaluable to me. I wish we could all have a giant Internet hug right now. ::hug::

I will NEVER forget reading that PUBYAC post inviting us to participate and immediately settling down to write a post. So, I thought I’d do a little bit of everything: a bit of reflection, a peek at my to-do, and some of my personal favorites over the years.

I love seeing the evolution of flannelboards and the different intepretations of stories! We have a bunch of universal flannels, but one in particular seems to pop up everywhere, Dog’s Colorful Day: Me, before Flannel Friday even existed!, Nicole 4.27.11, Anne 5.27.11, Bridget 9.2.11, Danielle 3.2.12, Library Quine & Kendra 9.9.11, Tracey 4.13.12, Sarah’s dinosaur twist 5.18.12, Andrea 11.15.12, & Amy 2.21.14!

[If I missed your Dog post, please link it in the comments & I’ll update it!]

One of my favorite things are tutorials. Whether it’s how to store your materials (Lisa from Thrive After Three) to how make a board (Library Quine at Loons & Quines) or repurpose a board (Lisa at Libraryland) to mastering puffy paint (Mary at Miss Mary Liberry), to making your own patterns (Melissa at Mel’s Desk).

So, thanks again, Flannel Friday! Pretty soon it’ll be four years…five years…fifteen years with you still going strong!

Anne is hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!
