  12. Elizabeth says:

    How awesome are these? You know, I'm going with that same color scheme next year too…black with bright (teal, lime green, hot pink, purple). I think you have rubbed off on me quite a bit πŸ™‚

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these (and everything you do).

    I was just thinking to myself (about 10 minutes ago), "I haven't read/heard from Kristen in a while…I hope she's OK."

    And, here you are…all OK.

    Have a great 11 days.

  13. Mrs. Parker says:

    These are seriously great! I want them. Is there a way to print them on black card stock/paper instead of using ink? Just thought maybe you thought about this.

    • Kristen says:

      Hey Mrs. Parker! I was wondering that too, but I think the ink doesn't come out white…I think that part just stays blank and the rest is filled in. I consoled myself with the thought that black ink is cheaper than colored ink!! Ha! πŸ™‚

  14. Elizabeth says:

    PS-love vintage Dollar Tree baskets, too πŸ™‚

  15. Love, love, LOVE! These would go perfectly with last year's theme-heck, they may still work with this year's theme!

  18. Jessica says:

    They are SUPER CUTE!

  19. I have been out for two weeks but doing homework everyday! I wish I was planning for next year but I won't be until my classes are done in July! I love your labels. I think they stand out even more now that they are black!! Good luck girly with your last few days!

  20. Jessica King says:

    Love the signs-I was just putting up black boarder thinking along the same lines as you (white walls, white floors, etc) so funny! We ended last week and I am STILL not finished "closing down" my room!

  21. Cynthia says:

    I am totally loving these signs! The "vintage" baskets look like they are in amazing shape! My decorating sounds like it is following yours. I'm dropping the zebra, pink and green, and going with black and brights! BTW, I'm still in school, too! Kids get out next Thurs. and teachers' last day is the 15th!

  22. Mrs. M says:

    Love the black signs with white lettering. Thank you for sharing.

    Yay! Kristen's back!
    I love the white on black! They look great!I can't wait to see what else you make! I've been out since May 22nd, but I spent my first week off painting my new classroom. It took forever, but was totally worth it! I can't wait to start painting my cabinets, but I have to wait until the custodians are finished with the floors in my hallway before I can get back into my room. You can check out before and after pics of the walls on my blog. Do you plan on doing any more blog designing over the summer?
    Hang in there! You'll be finished soon!

    How Cute Is This?

  25. Oh so cute! I just love everything about your signs. πŸ™‚

  35. Ms.M says:

    ROFL, I logged on this morning saw the post and ran over here to read. I thought for sure I would be one of the first 3. LOL! No way I am like 40 something. ROFL. Anyway, as always they are fabulous Kristen. How did you make them? Did you make the background black? Did you use a lot of ink? Was it black paper? So curious.


  36. Dawn says:

    LOVE these! Can't wait to try this in my room.

  37. heather says:

    I am like Ms. M.. I am so curious on how you made these???
    They are sweet! <3

  38. Ximena says:

    Again, you have created an amazing idea. Love it!!

  39. Mrs. Saoud says:

    I love the makeover. The colorful baskets and black/white signs are sharp. It's bananas. Every time I visit and leave a comment, you have like 1,000 more followers. So proud to know and grow with you!


    P.S. With the transition to Kinder… I'll be thinking about a few more changes with the pages. I'll collect my thoughts and contact you. =D

  40. Gladys says:

    These are just too stinkin' adorable! You have a great eye for design, Kristen! πŸ˜‰


  41. I do like the "flipped" ones much better! Super cute!

    Do you ever do any of your signs in Spanish?

  44. Anonymous says:

    ok these are amazing!!!!

  45. Unknown says:

    I love these! Where are the ones I saw on Pinterest with the sharpened and unsharpened pencils?

  46. I have similar crates…how did you attach them to the crates?

    • Kristen says:

      I always laminate the signs then hot glue them. It holds them on really strongly, but can be removed later if you tug really hard. The hot glue usually peels off (at least from the containers shown above). I hope this helps!

  47. Did you use a Cricut to cut the signs into the funky shape?

  48. Marci says:

    I love the neat and bold look of your design. It is fun and efficient. If we are going to spend most of our day in the classroom, it needs to be a fun place.

  49. Kim Leighton says:

    What is the design shape of the labels? I want to get that shape to make labels and other displays, but I don't know to search for it… Thanks!! πŸ™‚

    Hi Kristen!
    I love all your creative ideas!
    I especially love the font you used on these labels. Would you mind sharing where we can get that font?
