Sunday Smorgasbord (June 7th) and SALE!!

(Just click the picture above to get a link to the button)
Hey all,
    I'm back with more random.  If you would like to link up your random posts, feel free by entering your link at the bottom. I just ask that you grab the image above and link back here.  Onto my ramblings:

I hope you all had a great 4th of July! It was yucky and rainy here. I was very jealous of my friends on vacation. But we made the most of it.  

I'm pretty sure I can say we teachers spend way too much money on our classrooms.  This might be a stash I'm hiding in the spare bedroom. I think I might have a problem.

 I loved this new stool! To decorate or not? 
 New Table Caddies. 
I loved my circular caddies but I think these will be easier to decorate and fit more  goodies. 
 Another frame for posters. I love the look of my posters in nice frames.

 Why did I buy this magnetic metal? I have no idea. I'll figure it out though! :)

 Another random purchase.  It was just too cute to pass up for a buck!

 And my folders will look so much better in this adorable file holder! Loved it!

 My room is ribbon, ribbon, ribbon, so  I had to buy more.
I really prefer ribbon to paper border.

Scentos on sale and chisel tip. Yes Please! 

And the most exciting news is this fun 12 day SALE! 
So today is ... 
 I am putting my Morning Menus on sale.  If you want to read more about the way I make morning work fun and give students a choice, you can click here.  My menus are also perfect for fast finishers and I've created covers and notebooks for fast finishers within the pack.  My kiddos absolutely love it.

I also wanted to give a little preview of what they are like. So if you head over to my Facebook Fan Page you can grab yourself a Fast Finishers Freebie under the tab that says FREE.  Following me on Facebook is also a great way to keep up on the deal of the day.  

Don't forget to check out all of my friends who are participating in the 12 days of discounts.

    Thanks for hosting.

  6. Love your blog and your creative ideas! Please put down where you bought the items, just in case....hmmm!

  7. Thanks for the opportunity to link up! Love your blog :)

  8. Those might be the biggest sparklers I have ever seen. How long do they last?
    We had some Dollar Store ones that would burn out every 15 seconds. Those things look like they would last all night.

  10. Paint that stool!! Aboslutely!! I hope you'll show us when you're done!!! I buy tons for my classroom too. I love, love, love this linky party. I'm off to do mine know!

  11. I found tubs similar to those at Target last year and used them for each of my table groups! I love them! Can't wait to see how you put them to use, you always give me such inspiration!


  12. I'm totally a ribbon border type of girl too! I think I have a lot of the same ribbon as you do. I love the stool you go. I think you should decorate it :).

    I have two little boys too! Yours look like they are close in age, just like mine. Mine are just a few days shy of being exactly 2 years apart. I love it.

    I linked up as well.

    Thanks for sponsoring this linky! It's fun!


  15. Michelle, I can't believe I've never thought of using ribbon as a border. It's so perfect! I do know some people who cover their bulletin boards with pretty fabric though - doesn't show the pin holes and looks gorgeous.

  21. I might have to make a trip to Hobby Lobby-who knew they were hiding such goodies! I have a stool like that decorated in my class-I love it! :)


  22. I loved reading all about your randomness. Your boys are so adorable! I think my favourite one was the random metal purchase. Why? Because I do that ALL THE TIME! Sometimes I find uses, sometimes I look back and laugh and say "why the heck did I buy that?"

    I am following your great blog. (Will you be switching to Bloglovin'?)
