Five for Friday!

Friday, June 21, 2013

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs 5 for Friday!

I still have a few weeks until I get to hit the beach! I am ready. So ready. But while the beach is a good 2 weeks away I have been feeling unusually crafty. That’s not to say that I am actually any good at being crafty, I just like doing it. It’s probably all the NON-Educational Pinteresting I have been doing. Don’t get me wrong I love all the educational ideas that I find on pinterest, It is just sometimes nice to head on over to the crafty section to see what crafty people have been doing.
I took a trip to Hobby Lobby and Ollie’s earlier this week.
1. I scored this cute toy bin at Hobby Lobby. It was on clearance.  I thought it was adorable. 

2. I found some super cute washi tape at HL so I decorated my 3 hole punch. It now has polka dots. =) 

3. I also found mustache duct tape, so I tried to brighten up the Staples holders I bought for 2 bucks at Ollie's. They aren't finished yet, so no judging. ;) 

4. On Wednesday I was super excited & flattered. My TPT store had 15 sales in one day! I took a screen shot of my phone before all of them came through. They were all purchased by the same person. I was so flattered that they loved my stuff enough to buy it. 

5. & finally the boyfriend and I had a dinner date. We went to Carfagna's. A local family owned restaurant. It was yummy and delicious and any other good adjective you could use to describe it. Also most likely fattening. Hence, probably why it was so good. 

Then when we went to leave boyfriend suggested that it would be a good time to go to Lakeshore Learning, since we were practically next door to it. Best Idea Ever. I bought letter stamps, chevron library pockets, and a pre-writing kit that was originally 50 bucks that I got for 12! TWELVE dollars people! That is a steal! I needless to say was and still am excited. Makes me almost want to start school like now.
I DID say ALMOST though. I still need to get in my beach time. ;) 

Make sure you link up with Doodle! 


  1. I have always wondered what to do with washi tape! What a great idea to decorate desk supplies! Love it! Glad I found your blog through this week's linky.

    1. Thanks! I just found washi tape too! I figured why not decorate some stuff! =)

  2. I love the beach too! If you go to my blog you will see my post regarding the first day of Summer down at the shore. I am really not trying to make you jealous. lol
    I need to find a Hobby Lobby around here...have a feeling it may be addictive!

    1. Oh, I think you are trying to make me jealous! lol. I have until July 7th before I get my beach time.

      Hobby Lobby will be addictive. I love to buy scrapbooking supplies there. & they always have good sales and a coupon on their website for 20 or even 40% off. =)
      Happy Shopping. =)

  3. What is Ollie's?? I just found out about Hobby Lobby {and traveled over 50 miles to get there!} Guess I'll add one more place to my Must Visit List! Love your washi tape!

    Lucky to Be in First

    1. Ollie's is kind of like a big lots, but I think they have a better selection of stuff. I think they are mainly in the midwest. so depending on where you are you may or may not be close to one!

  4. Did you say.. Chevron library pockets?! I wish you took a picture! Immediately, upon reading this, I decided that I MUST go hunt them down. And congrats on such an awesome find with the writing kit! Anyway, I just found your blog today, so I'm excited to be following you now! I'm also an Autism teacher, and I can't wait to start at a new school next year (still not sure which grade levels) but I can't wait to browse through your TPT store and steal some of your ideas! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

  5. I was really searching for such a nice post and got here...Thanks for sharing such a nice information, its beneficial for me...Keep sharing more.
