Today I'm teaming up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!
I love reading about other people's Monday Made It projects but I very seldom have stuff to share. However, this week I made three things!!!
Yesterday I used my Silhouette to create this beauty!!! It's made of wood so that hopefully it will hold up better than the last one!
In the town next to mine, there is a small local craft store. Every month they offer crafting classes on different nights, kind of like Painting with a Twist but more of Crafting with a Twist. This month's class was to make a crayon and chalkboard door hanger. Well, of course, every teacher needs one of those!
So I gathered up a coworker and off we went. We enjoyed a dinner at Olive Garden and then headed off to our craft night.
This isn't my finished project though as I am changing the ribbon to a red and burlap combo to match my room. I also have an apple to add to the bottom. I'll be sure to share the finished one when I'm done. OH and it's NOT going anywhere near my door. Remember my clipboard?!? Can you imagine what they would do with colors?
Lastly, I needed a quick way to label my popsicle stick buckets. Since I teach three classes, I have three different sets of sticks to use to call on students. I did have the buckets color coded which worked great for me but I wanted to add a little something extra to them.
So this afternoon I cut out the teacher initials for each class I teach and put them on the buckets. I think they look great!
Although this isn't really a "made it", I did go work in my classroom today! I was able to get my desks set up and my computer plugged in. I began to organize my supplies and books again. By the time I left, I really felt good about it all.....much better than when I started.
Our students start one month from tomorrow!!! Whew, one month of summer vacation left. I have a lot left to do in that month! Hope you are having a great summer!
