Look What I Got!

 They came! They came! I'm so excited! The vinyl letters and polka dots that I won from Precious Perks and The Polka Dot Patch are here!!!

Didn't they turn out cute?!

I got the silver pails at a garage sale for 25 cents each! Even better than the dollar they were selling for at Target! When I found them, I knew I wanted to use them for my "sharp" and "dull" pencils. So I was EXTRA excited when I found out that I won an item from Ashley's shop!

I was able to choose the colors and the font and Ashley gives such easy, and clear directions on how to adhere the vinyl. It took me like 2 minutes, and it looks amazing! {I made the little pink circles with my hole-punch because I LOVE how Ashley uses different sized polka dots in her classroom}.

P.S. I am currently obsessed with owls and if I didn't already waste all of my printer ink printing out my beach theme classroom decor, I definitely would change my theme to owls!! haha...

  8. I love owls too! I wanted to redo my theme this year but when I thought about how much time and money I'd put into my sports theme, I just couldn't. I've wanted to for about a year though so I think next summer I'll make the switch!!!
