I've discovered so many new things this summer since I started blogging - Linky Parties, Thermal Laminators and everyone's favorite - Pinterest! Who knew? After spending weeks pinning amazing ideas that had me talking out loud to my computer, "OMG, how cute is that? I need one of those!" I decided that it was time to make some of my inspirations come to life. So, I headed out early this morning and hit Joann's, Michael's, Walmart and Lowes. Five hours and too many dollars later, I arrived back home armed with ribbon, fabric, containers, organizers and a bunch of other stuff that I'm not even sure what I'm going to do with yet.
The first project I tackled was a really cute one. Marlana over at Lil' Country Kindergarten made a set of really adorable pencil buckets for her sharpened and unsharpened pencils. I knew when I saw them that I absolutely had to have some too. I found these great little buckets that actually have pencils on them - how perfect is that? (I found them at Walmart in the celebrations section with all of the party supplies and they were only 97 cents!)
I made some cutsie labels with picture clues, printed them on cardstock and voila - Project #1 done! I love the way they came out! If you'd like a copy of the labels just click below the picture. I wonder which project I'll have fun with tomorrow?
