A New Level of Craziness and the Back to School Sale

I may have hit a new level of craziness today. I decided to head down to Michaels because I was feeling a little creative. My wheels were turning and I was going to get projects done for school. I was making my way around Michaels checking things out. I find an amazing deal on those Scentos markers. They were on clearance for 20 cents and I had just paid a dollar each at Target. So, I did what any normal teacher would do...I bought way more than I needed too.


You know as you head up to the check stand they have the dollar bins as you wait in line. Well of course I had to glance through all of the bargains and that is when I found this:

And that's when I officially began my travels to an all new level of craziness. I decided that I would buy all the letters in my name to replace the wooden train that I have in my classroom. The bright colors would go perfect with my new color scheme this year. So I sifted through the bins of letters and pulled out what I needed. 

Cute huh??? Actually, not so cute because they had no "Y" that I needed to finish off my name. So, I did what any normal teacher would do...I went to another Michaels. I was super excited because when I arrived they had way more letters!! Guess what??? No, Y. So, I got in my car and headed to another Michaels. Guess what?? Even more bins of letters!!! Are you seeing where this is going?? No, Y!!!! What the heck?? I would totally get it if there was no A or E or S, but Y??? So, I called my sister and had her check the Michaels where she lives. (1 1/2 hours away). No...Y!!!!!

It's seasonal of course, so I just might buy myself a giant Y that is way bigger than the rest of my name just to prove a point. I don't know what point, but I want a Y!!

By the way I am participating in the big sale!! Woohoo!!

A big thanks to Michelle at 3am Graphics for the cute sign!!!


  1. Your name display will be super cute - so strange & funny about the Y though!

  2. Hi Christa,
    I found you through Farley's Currently.
    I have a feeling I am going to be looking for a Y in every Michael's I visit... and I promise to send it to you if I DO find one!
