UPS Delivery Truck - Flames

Don't you just love those big brown UPS trucks?  I know I do because they always bring me good awesome stuff! This truck is even more special with it's flames down the sides....never seen one like that! I was so bummed because he didn't come before I had to leave for a senior trip meeting (I'm my son's senior class sponsor.) to discuss our cruise for next summer and get it booked! It's looking like a 5 night cruise to the excited because I've never been on a cruise! 

 Anywho, back on topic, so, he left my package with my cousin across the road and she got it to me! You might remember a few days ago I blogged about the awesome fabric I ordered from this place. You can read that post here. Well, it's here and I am beyond thrilled to have it! It is very nice quality fabric....much better for the price than you can get at your local fabric shop! I can't wait to make some delicious decor for my classroom! My plans are to make a valance for my one lonely window, a bunting or perhaps two to hang somewhere in the classroom, and a skirt for my desk/table. If I have enough of the chevron print left, I might even cover my desk chair to match! Here's a picture of them all together. 

The pink was a piece I had bought at Wal Mart, but I'm going to look for a pink and white stripe to replace it before I start creating! I like the way the other four have white in the fabric and I think the pink needs some white in it too. I am very visual and this just isn't pleasing to my eye! I am hoping to find a pink and white stripe. I know, I know....I have a problem! LOL...:) Good news is, I am going to the big city of Gainesville (home of the Florida Gators) later today and I will run by JoAnn's and see what they have! I also got my handy dandy teacher 25% discount card in the mail the other day, so that will come in handy!

Before I go, I wanted to let you in on a SWEET giveaway! I really don't want to share but I have to in order to get my name in the drawing 5 more! I know....I'm selfish!
