Dollar Tree Deals

I am loving summer!   As hard as I try to forget about all things's just in my blood!   I have a feeling that pinterest is gonna keep me very busy this summer. 

We are moving to a new building next year and merging with another school.  Although I don't know what grade I'll be teaching yet...all the rooms have several cabinets and one section that is open without doors.  I'm going to keep my Safari theme and am trying to slowly convert to red and black decor.  I found the cutest oval shaped buckets at the Dollar Tree.  My plan is to use them on my open shelves...but of course I had to jazz them up with some vinyl first. 

   The wording on them may change but for now I like them.  

   I also found these little guys:

   They are intended to be added to top of papers...Not sure how I'll use them.   I have a couple more projects currently underway and will post them also when they are finished.



  1. How cute!! You have got to love the Dollar Tree!! It's a teacher's dream come true! :)

  5. Cute buckets! I have yet to meet a teacher who doesn't love buckets. I can't believe you are going through a whole summer not knowing what grade you'll be teaching or what room you will be in! You are a brave person! I would be going stir crazy, and yet you sound so calm.
    Look forward to hearing more about your new room set up.
