My new color scheme for the 2012-2013 school year

Ta-da!! Here it is!  My new color scheme for my classroom.  I was inspired by the summer picnic isle at Dollar General.  They had all kinds of cute baskets in various sizes.  Next I found a 4 pack of view 1" binders in the same colors.  Then to top it all off CVS had a sale this week on all their summer picnics stuff (which happened to be the same colors) and baskets for $0.80 instead of a dollar. I also found a fabric kit for making a pennant banner that was the right colors that had been marked down to $5.00 and it was the only one.  How can you beat that deal???  I thought it must be meant to be and I grabbed it all up.  I took all of the baskets they had at my CVS and will be hunting for more as we go on our trip this week.  So now it looks like a blue, pink and green monster threw up in my trunk. Oh what fun I am going to have!  Thanks to all my blog friends for the inspiration to be cute and matchy!


  1. Grrr! I can't remember how I made my header. I need to change it to match my new color theme. I think I did it in Picnik, but that is gone now. Any one have a tip on what they use now that Picnik is gone?

  2. Hi Tawnya! So I am also a mother of 10 year old twin boys (and an 8 year old girl), been married 16 years, and teaching 15! We've been job sharing for 10 years and feel so blessed that we are able to still teach and have time for laundry!
    We LOVE your trunk finds! We've just recently stocked up on bins, baskets, and tubs as well to give our room a lil facelift! So glad we found you!
