I have a slight confession to make...I have to cover my eyes and slowly take a peek through my hand when checking my bank account now. Why? Because I am officially in back to school shopping mode(ha ha..like I ever STOP shopping for my classroom) and I am just too chicken to look at my statement full force and see the damage. Teacher problems, anyone?
-----> It will be okay! I am going to comfort myself with all of the new goodies that I brought home from IKEA this past weekend. The closest one to mi casa is a good 4 hours away, but I hopped in my trusty Honda and headed to Charlotte! I fell in love instantly. I could have spent the whole day there and am already planning another trip with some of my teamies at work.
Here are some of the things that I got!
Some adorable standing photo frames ...
....that I made into table signs! Click here for the downloadable version from my TPT store.
I also snagged some of these colorful 8 x 10 frames and put Hope King's inspirational signs in them. I can't decide exactly where I am going to place these in my classroom yet. In truth...I don't know whee I am going to put anything!
While at Ikea, I purchased some other goodies that I can't wait to show you once I can get into my room.
Earlier in the week, I happened to be at Lowes and wandered trough the lawn and garden. All of a sudden....I wanted to throw together something flowery to sit outside of my classroom. So...this happened. Hopefully, my student gardeners can keep it alive....poor Mother Nature knows she can't leave me responsible for keeping a plant alive!!
Now, I am heading over to see the other Monday projects and get some more ideas!
