Fifty Shades of Crafts

Okay, I have been missing in action for a little bit, but I have a GOOD excuse!  We have been out of school for a little over a week.  During that time, the LAST thing on my mind has been school.  I have been totally engrossed in the Fifty Shades of Grey books.  I finished book three today and I have to admit I loved them!  If you have not read them, I would recommend them; however, I will say, they are not for the faint at heart.  I am really hope that there is a movie for the books.  I already have the perfect Christian picked out.  Tell me what you think, ladies!  Is Ian Somerhalder the perfect actor to play him or what? 
After I finished the book this morning, I decided I was going to make a trip to Hobby Lobby.  I have been thinking about my classroom decor for the new school year.  I have decided to go with a black and white polka dot with lime green and hot pink accents.  So anyway, I thought I would see if I could find anything cute for my room.  I was also on a mission because I found this really cute wreath on Pinterest and wanted to make it. 

While I was shopping,  I came across these cute pink and green baskets.  These puppies were only $2.29 a piece.  I thought that was a real bargain, so I bought six of for each of my tables. 

To doll them up a little, I bought some black and white polka dot ribbon go on them.  I simply weaved the ribbon through the little holes and hot glued the ends in place.  Then I attached a bow on the front.  I thought they turned out really cute.  :)

Okay and last but not least....the whole reason I went to Hobby Lobby was the purchase the supplies to make this wreath.  I got the idea from Pinterest.  It was from Miss Kranz's website.  I just simply used the colors in my classroom.  The green is a lime green and looks a little light in the photo, but it matches perfectly in person. 
I guess you could say that I have been fairly productive today.  :)  I plan to work on novel study tomorrow and hopefully I will have it posted sometime early next week. 

Well, I kind of have a headache.  I think it was all the paint!  I am going to take a Tylenol and head to bed.  Good evening!
