Sunday Smorgasbord

I'm linking up with Fabulous in First to share a Sunday Smorgasbord. So fun!

The school supplies are out at the stores and I am finding some great things that I am very convinced I need.
The Target Dollar Spot never disappoints. I'm going to use the 2 buckets for sharp and broken pencils. I love the pocket file folders. Such fun designs. I am going to make one my copy room folder. I always forget something in my classroom that I need to cut or copy. This might help my forgetful mind. Cross my fingers!
Staples had a coupon for 50% off Avery Labels. It was only one per person so I brought a friend. Shhh, don't tell! Index Cards are 1 cent for the first 2! I also got the cute notebook to be my writing conferring notebook for my kiddos. This following year I am going to follow Deanna Jump's and DeeDee Willis's plans for writing. Here is a link to their fabulous work. :)
The Dollar Tree had these cute bins in my 3 classroom colors. I am going to go back and find bigger baskets for my word work and math centers. I'm thinking green for word work and red for math. If I can find them too; I'll do blue for the library.
Nailpolish can glitter letters in cards without puckering the paper! I am the Maid of Honor for one of my best friend's wedding this summer. I have currently been working on invites for her Bridal Shower. After I printed them, I realized they needed more sparkle. I had just finished painting my nails and lightening struck. Here's a picture of just part of her name.
I did a light sparkle on the heading "She said Yes!" and a heavier sparkle on her name. You know, it is all about the bride. :) I didn't show the heading because the light sparkle wasn't really showing up in the picture.
 Now if you click here or the picture it will link you to my post about my new headbands, wristbands, backpack, and shirt tags for how to get home on the first week of school. That is not why I posted it.  I actually posted it because I am new here in blogging world and I need a little help. PLEASE! :)

I want to add a link to the bottom of my comments when I write on other blogs that will take you to my blog. I see that lots of you have them and I want to join the club. I have googled and tried to do it on my own and still can't seem to get it figured out. Hi! I'm New Here! Please Help!

Thanks for stopping by for a Sunday Smorgasbord! Be sure to stop by and visit Fabulous in First!
