Colors, shapes, and a little freebie :)

I went into my room for the first time this summer and my room wasn't too bad. We did have to pack everything up, but I tried to get organized and throw a lot out before I left! Here is the view from the door...
I walked in to find a really nice surprise too! They had our carpets professionally cleaned! They look brand new! I was so, so happy!
I also had another surprise in my room...
a brand new rug!! Wow!!
Here is a view from the other side of the room...
If you look at the cabinets on the right you can kind of see my old shape posters hanging. Well...I took those babies down right away and hung these up!!
I hung the shape posters on the cabinets and the half size color posters above. I love how they look in my room with all of my other polka dot decor! 
You can pick up the shape posters HERE
and the color posters HERE

I also did a quick little craft project that I had on my to-do list. I actually made a to-do list haha
Now I can write my list with a dry erase marker and have it right on my desk for me (I probably needed a much bigger frame to write all my to-do's, but this one will work). The frame is 5x7 and you can grab the insert here, or by clicking on the picture above, for FREE!  :)


  1. Your room seems so big! I love your to-do list too!

  8. So pretty! I love the yellow cabinets. Looks just like my school. Mine has yellow or red cabinets. I got stuck with red and would have preferred yellow. Your shape and color posters look fab!

  15. Wow! I am IN LOVE with your bright and cheery classroom. I also have cabinet envy!

    Your new posters are very cute. I love how the 3d shapes are included - you are making me want to get a new pack!

    I love your write-on/wipe-off to-do list. This is a fantastic idea. I think I will make one and save a few trees this year!

    Cannot wait to see your room all set up!
