Birthday Freebies

Hey yall!
I am loving that today is the first day of fall! Its *officially* my favorite time of the year :)
What have I been spending this splendid day doing, you ask?
Why, getting things ready for my new classroom, of course!
I printed out a ton of my Owls on Dots stuff-desk tags, alphabet, number posters, weather set, 'where are we?,' clock numbers, calendar buddies...{I still have to print out my word wall, schedule cards, welcome postcards, and Daily Five posters!}
But then I realized I never made anything for birthdays!
I had downloaded these adorable birthday charts from the lovely Randi, and had every intention of using these for my classroom.

But then I decided that I really wanted some colorful ones that matched my room! I loved her idea, so I just made some that kept with my colorful owls and polka dots theme. Thanks, Randi :)

Then I decided that I needed to make those birthday balloons that are all over Pinterest! You know, the ones like these?

So of course I had to make some that matched my theme!

Now, here's my problem. I cannot find those dang giant pixie stix anywhere! Any suggestions on where I might pick some up?
I have also been busy cutting and laminating Anna's First Grade Common Core and More Content Word Wall cards. I LOVE this set and it was well worth the money!
But takes a lot of time trying to get all the cards ready!
Do you see that giant stack??? That took me about 2 hours...and that's not even HALF of the cards! I still have about 60 more pages to print out...eeek!
I seriously have gone through a brand new color ink cartridge just today! No, really. I bought it last night and it ran out today. That's how much stuff I've been printing! It is totally worth it, though, because my room is going to look fab :)
Last thing before I head out for some dinner and to watch my dawgs beat Vandy....
My BIG giveaway is going to start on Monday, and will be 5 days of fun! Make sure you stop back by to enter to win!!!
Happy fall, yall!
