Just send my check to Hobby Lobby

An innocent enough trip to Hobby Lobby for ribbon and a tri-board did not bode well for the ol’ checkbook. But, I could spend hours in that place! It was just me and littlest Lamb today and he was on a mission to find a toy. He ended up with these from the clearance! He loves to pose.
And here’s my swag for school. You’ll notice all the following pictures are from my car’s backseat and trunk. They could possibly be used as incriminating evidence of shopping, so this is where they’ll stay!
sweet birdie {I’m all owls, trees, and birds in my room} Used the 40% coupon on this one. He’s pretty big. I will hang him above the library with my FICTION letters {more to come on those} See in the background…The huge daisy will join other ones for a display in a corner near my guided group table. And that’s a roll of weathered wood fadeless paper for my Power Pix board!

Here’s a gorgeous door handle knob for my school bag to hang. It was 50% off! Have you browsed in this girly section of Hobby Lobby?! There are some frames that will be mine by week’s end!
and here’s some recent goodies from target. My dollar spot just changed over! Here’s a fair warning about my mood for my students! I love Mr. Men! And Lorax pencils! I also found these posters I will hand out to students of the month. Many of my kiddos cannot afford poster board, so they never have a poster to display. There are 10 in a pack. And here’s the sign of the moment…My way or the Highway! and a lovely little marker board for things to do. Every thing below was $1.

I fell in love with this bright red color. I am changing my nonfiction library baskets from white to this. It will look great paired with my green ones! I buy the entire stack every time we go. I think 3 stacks should be enough!
Hit up the party section! Last year I snagged fabric pennants with cupcakes. They no longer have fabric ones, but they have paper ones in this bright pattern. I have those and these paper lanterns. And this week they have these tissue flower garlands. Each lantern and pennant set was $5.99. The garland was $6.99
