Boho Birds courtesy of Carson Dellosa!

The lovely folks over at Carson Dellosa saw a comment I posted at Teeny Tiny's blog and were nice enough to send me over some of my very own Boho Birds decor to display in my classroom!

I couldn't believe it, and when my package arrived, it felt like Christmas!

Here are some pics of the first project I made with them (just ignore all the junk on top of my cabinets--what's a girl to do?!)...

I really think the birds' bright colors complement my poms!
(Click the pics to see larger images.)

The branches are really intended to go sideways with the birds 
perching on them, but I improvised to make a tree instead.

(This pic is from their website, so you can see how the branches are intended to be used (I tried to embed the pic, but it wouldn't work, sorry!).

Still deciding what to do with all the leftover birds & leaves!  
I actually saw some GREAT inspiration of how other teachers have used the Boho Birds set in their classrooms on Carson Dellosa's Facebook page.  
Here's the link to check it out:  

I absolutely LOVE how she used glue dots, push pins, & the boho bird cut-outs to display student work.  I am SO ON this for our student work displays in the hallway.  They are pretty darn boring with just large black sheets of construction paper (laminated) with nametags and paper clips that hold the work.  Her idea is SO MUCH CUTER.  And of course, if it's not cute, why bother??  Am I right???

Well, I hope this inspires you to check out the Boho Birds or some of Carson Dellosa's other new spring-y collections--they have tons of cute ones, and I won't lie--they've always been my favorite supplier for classroom cuteness.  And I'm not just saying that!  :)  Another one of my favorites is the Calypso Set--I LOVES me some bright colors, as you know.

Another big THANK YOU to Carson Dellosa--if I wasn't already a loyal customer, I would be now!  :D

On another note, my little boy will be turning TWO in less than a month!  Where has the time gone???  Also--must switch into party-planning mode like, NOW.  :)

Hope all you teachers out there are enjoying your weekend.  Our weather here in the Dallas area has been GORGEOUS today.  :)


  1. That is so awesome that they sent you the Boho Birds. Congrats! I like how you made it into a tree. The websites branches looked great also, but yours is very creative.
    Hope party planning is going well!

    1. Thanks, Antoinette! Is it sad that school just ended 2 weeks ago, and I'm already thinking about my classroom for fall!? LOL.

  2. That is a wonderful present! I'm doing my dollar days linky! I would love to have you come back and link up!

    1. I know; I was so surprised and excited! Thanks! I will come by and check it out!
