Summer Shopping

Somebody Stop Me...I feel like I say that WAY too much.

One of my absolute favorite bloggers, Kristen, from Ladybug's Teacher Files is having a fabulous linky party:


Let me show you some of my summertime purchases:

First off, I've created all of these things (of which, all of the materials needed to be purchased). 


Now, all of these are being put together to help make my new classroom color scheme come together.  My new colors are black as the background color and then hot pink, lime green, bright blue and purple.

So, I've purchased this from Amazon and I'm waiting on it's arrival:

That's 75 feet of black contact paper.  I'm going to use it to cover the side of my file cabinet, some shelves and come cubbies.  Who knows, if you get in the way, you might get covered, too.  There's 75 feel, y'all.

I've also purchased these buckets (I've got a bucket/basket addiction) for my tables:

Guess what colors I bought? 

I'm going to be using Kristen's labels for them...won't they look great?

OK, I think that's all I'm going to say for now (otherwise, I might make hubby upset).  Off to create more...

  8. I'm using similar colors too! I was planning on rocking lots of black spray paint. Contact Paper is never my friend. hahaha!

  9. I am planning on covering my clip boards and lining my plastic containers too. I think they are both so cute. I am using the same color scheme except I am using zebra print instead of black.
