So Indecisive!!

Ok, so like everyone else, I've been planning for next year....I'm currently working on my pirate themed classroom...
these are the desk pockets I make/use...

My problem is....I can NOT decide on the backgrounds on a lot of it - harrumph!!

So far, I have:
Desk pockets (can't decide color/clip art)
Name tags (I have LOTS of different versions, and I've narrowed it down to like 2!)
Word Wall Letters (can't decide on backgrounds)
Center labels (big and small for the board and buckets I use - different versions for Reading and Math)
Job chart

What else am I missing??

I'm not so sure I'll be selling this one though - it's too hard to make it so generic that it would fit everyone, right?? 
What do you think?
Should I sell it?
I think I need some help in making decisions, is what I think - ha!!

Anyway, I also made these labels:

They're monthly labels for my buckets...
I believe it's 6 quarts..that's how I store all my monthly stuff. And they stack pretty, too!!
If you don't use big ones like that, I also did some small ones that could go on smaller bins, filing cabinets, or binders, maybe..

It's goes with my pirate decor - but more importantly, it'll go with
You can grab them for free...just leave me some lovin' :)

Also - ONE WEEK until our blogger meet up!!!

I'm calling tomorrow to make the reservations to The's a brunch ordeal, and we have a BOGOFree coupon they said we could copy off for everyone!! woop woop! (well, I gotta FIND it first - lol)
And then we can hang out at the Tikki Bar afterwards - I just gotta see if kids are allowed, because I'm bringing THIS cutie!!

hehe..I'd bring A too, but then I'd NEVER get to sit and enjoy myself!!

Also, there is a parking fee, but I'm pretty sure he said that if we make reservations, then that fee is waived - I'll let y'all know for sure!!

I have a pirate theme too! I sort of had it in my classroom this year but, being a first year teacher, didn't have much to it. Something that I noticed I HATED about my room this year was that even though I did have some pirate stuff, none of it matched (some was from online and some was from college because we were the pirates) and I had so many colors in my room it didn't look good. Next year I am making all of my pirate things look uniform and am going with a red, black, and white color scheme to make everything look cohesive. I am not a huge fan of red but it is easy to find pirate things in red so it made it easier. Hope this helps!

I know a Flordia teacher!!! But I do not think she has a blog! My childhood best friend's aunt is a teacher there... I can't remember what part... although I think its pretty close to Disney!

ANYWAYS.... I just wanted to tell you that I am a new follower and that I love your storage labels!! I haven't seen anything like this with the topics on the label as well!!! Thanks for sharing them!

Please consider checking out my blog

I love your theme. I was thinking about doing pirates as well, but ultimately decided on my woodland theme. I've started making things for next year and we haven't even finished school yet. I live in Southern Florida and wish I could make it up for the Meet up. Hopefully, next time. LOVE your blog by the way.

I'm planning on doing a pirate theme too. I'm working on collecting red, white, and black colored things. Maybe red would be a good background color. I think you should try selling it. Pirates are the new "in thing". What do you use the desk pockets for? I am curious.....

I can't wait to meet that cutie (oh and you too)! I will try my best not to squeeze her cheeks! =)
