A busy start to the new year, Fab Finds, and a Freebie!

I spent most of yesterday printing, cutting, laminating, cutting and preparing the envelopes for all the new winter centers I plan on using as we return to school tomorrow! I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Kodak printer, it was a little difficult to install but now that it is working it has actually worked EVERY TIME I tried to print with WONDERFUL color and I have NOT had to restart, reprint, or retry anything!! I have printed 400 pages of activities, the black ink has run out (this is probably because my husband and daughter printed their Christmas sheet music which I was unaware of at the time), but I still have half a cartridge of color ink left and it only cost $9.00 to replace the black!! It's just such an improvement over my old printer and it has made me SOOO HAPPY!!

I had to run out for that ink right, and office max is right next to Target, so I had to stop in, I just had to see what they had in the dollar bins, I knew they would be restocked, I was actually hoping to find some of the dry erase pockets I've seen some of you picking up but they didn't have much out! They had a few stickers and dry erase boards, makers, erasers like they had for back to school but the rest was either empty or Valentines. I was excited to find these great Valentine goodies......
Pencils and sticky notes!
The cutest felt bags to hold centers
Heart erasers and a nice heart container to keep them in!
smaller heart containers for making a memory game!

Cute paper trays, they also had magazine holders, and boxes in these cute prints!
And finally I created another activity using my cute cute cute Scrappin Doddles clipart I got over the weekend! Hope you can use this!

Happy first day back after break to all of you who are heading back into the classroom tomorrow, and enjoy your time if your still going to be sitting around in your pajamas - now you can feel sorry for all of us!


  1. Love your Target finds!! Last time I went our Target didn't have all their Valentine's stuff out yet. I did get some table scatter that would make good math counters though. The felt bags are too cute!

    What kind of Kodak printer did you have? It seems that I am always buying more ink for mine. Thanks for sharing your Snowman Missing Numbers.

  2. Ahh. AWESOME finds. It looks like I will be checking out my Target dollar section this afternoon. =)

  3. Now why did you have to go and do that?!?! I have been keeping my distance from Target and now I don't know if I can resist any longer....

    How much was that printer? I have given up on printing color things because I go through my color ink in no time...just way too expensive.

  6. Im definitely going to be having a laminating party tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Good finds! And I'm with Holly - which printer is this? $9 for black ink??? SERIOUSLY??!! That is amazing. I like my printer and I don't have trouble with it but I get two black and one color ink cartridge in a package from Sam's for almost $90!!!!
    Thanks for the freebie!

  8. I go the printer for $59 at Walmart online with free same day pick up in the store, it was $79 in the store. The website keeps going back and forth between 59 and 79 pretty much everyday I just watched it and waited for it to be $59 ordered it and then sent my sister the link it was $79 for her, the next morning she looked again back at $59, so if you want to save $20 and it's saying $79 it will probably be back at $59 soon! Here's the link if you want to check it out!
