Friday Freebies and other random ideas

Last night was the last day of VBS. It's been a lot of fun but I'm glad it's over. I have been exhausted. I enjoyed being in the nursery with the little ones. Especially my sweet niece Kaley. Most of the little ones were 2 and that is such a fun age. Chris and I might have gotten a little teasing about me working in the nursery and when we might have a little one of our own. Since we've only been married a little over a month, I think we have some time. Although while I was at McKay's, a local used bookstore, I found a book called Our teacher's having a baby. I got it because I figured someone could use it and I will hopefully use it one day. I had it sitting on my desk at school because I wasn't sure where to put it when organizing my library. I thought about it and realized that I should put away or there would be all kinds of rumors going around school. So hopefully I put it away in time and no rumors will be started.
I've been spending some time on my computer this week trying to get a few random things done. I love the birthday balloons I've seen on blogs and on pinterest. That's what I did for my students' last year. Since I have the same kids this year, I needed a new idea. While I was cleaning out my treasure box, I found some bubbles. I have 12 so hopefully I can find some more next week. I think they came from the target party supplies. I made some labels to go on them. They just say Have a bubbly birthday. I have them as part of a freebie at the end of the post. I plan to have pictures of completed projects for my Made it Monday Post.
I have had this pin on my summer project to do list all summer. I finally decided to start working on it. When I went to the link for the picture, I found the freebies at Tattling to the Teacher. But they didn't fit my theme or the things I needed. So made some tags for my own. I would show you pictures of a completed project but I don't have a printer at home. So Tuesday when I'm able to go to school, I'll finish up this project. This freebie is at the end of the post too.
Another project I've been working on is my teacher binder. There are tons of these out there. I'm including a freebie that I made using Erin Bradley papers. I would love to make you a cover sheet of your own. If you are interested, just leave me a message and I'll be glad to email you one. Here's your freebie of the things I've talked about. Click here to download from dropbox. Please leave me some comment love if you download my freebies. I guess I need to get back to work on some units. I'm linking up with Friday Freebies at TBA. Be sure to check out all the great freebies.
