Sneak Peek

I decided that The Perch needed a little extra "something" for next year, so I incorporated more color. I found this awesome pink chevron fabric at Hobby Lobby (6.99 a yard then used my 40% off coupon). I couldn't wait until August to put it up so I went ahead and covered my bulletin boards before school got out. Here is the sneak peek. I'm revamping the entire room next year to allow for balanced literacy and changing some centers around, so I'll post more pics when it's all said and done. What do you think?

Amazing Find at IKEA

I made my first trip to IKEA this week and was just astonished at all of the amazing things they have to offer. Let me just say that I am a storage bin addict, so it was really dangerous and detrimental to my health to be there. But, I practiced restraint and only got little things. But, I have to let you know about my deal of the century. I've been looking for the magazine file boxes for my Read To Self storage but they are pricey, even online at Amazon. IKEA had a pack of 5 for.......are you sitting down?.........$1.99. That is right. One dollar and 99 cents for a pack of 5 cardboard magazine boxes. It was no fluke either. It was just their price. So, if you need them and are within driving distance to IKEA then run, don't walk, and snatch them up before they're gone!!

The Etsy Betsy Store

Well folks, I've been thinking about it for a while and have decided to open an Etsy store to sell vinyl decals, gifts, and...drum roll Dry Erase Circles!! That's right. I'm going to be making and selling the dry erase circles I blogged about earlier in the year. I'm working out the details for the shop but I hope to have it up and running this weekend. I'll post with the link once it's ready to go. I plan to focus on things for the classroom but also offer gifts and crafts as well. I'm super excited and also super nervous at the same time. Fingers crossed!
