fabulous finds

I am linking up with Fun in 4B for her fabulous finds links party!

I have finally caught the new school year bug from my teaching partner and pal!

Today I hit up Joann Fabrics.....I worked my coupons and saved $75.00!  I had Caroline with me and she was such the helpful shopper....look mom OWLS!  I am trying to not have too much owls in my classroom but the other day at IKEA I couldn't pass up this....

It was just $9.99!

So Back to Joann Fabrics....the baskets and scrap pads were 40% off, I used a 40% off coupon for the ribbon which i plan to tie on the ends of the baskets for each table group, and then I got 20% more off for the teacher discount!  Using the scrap pad to make my teacher tool box super know what I am talking about.....and if not I will post that later!
The other ribbons will be tied on different buckets etc around the room....for a pop of color!

Next up....can you tell that I am all ready to make crate seats?  I just love this flannel fabric with owls on it!  Great excuse to buy that staple gun I have been wanting for my classroom too!  Woohoo!

Finally.....these last two fabrics.....the cute seer sucker polkadot will be the background for the student work board in my it for 50% off with my coupon....giddy up!  The chocolate brown will be the background for a couple other boards.  I am going to start my backgrounds tomorrow and drop off all my new goodies I found this week.  Hoping the carpets and floors have been cleaned so I can play around with my layout...

Make sure you link up too!
