Monday Made It July 14

I am linking up with Tara at 4thGradeFrolics for her Monday Made It. I thank her so much for this fabulous linky that keeps me inspired and on my toes always!

My first made it is center signs for my classroom.I am in love with how they turned out! They make me so happy!


My second made it is using the same theme of birds and aqua. I am going to put the child's name on the birds legs like it is holding the tag. 


This is my favorite made it so far! I love how my nameplates turned out. I used the aqua chevron for all of them and changed the color of the bird and the heart. 


I also made my toolbox match my new aqua and chevron theme. I love the way it turned out! It looks so much better than my first one.


 Off to another cheer camp. I cannot believe we go back to school in three weeks! Where has summer gone?? Don't forget to check out all of the other made its for great inspiration.

Monday Made It July

It is Monday again! I look forward to everyone's creative ideas every week! I am linking up with Tara at 4thGradeFrolics for her fabulous linky.

Since I am changing my classroom this year I made a new first day sign. I downloaded the letters from Moonlight Productions on Etsy.


My second made it was with my niece.  We used smores marshmallows, candy pens, candy eyes, and sticks to create our own monsters. She loved being able to eat them when we were done!

 My next made it was a challenge. I love the burlap wreaths but finding a tutorial that made sense was really hard for me. So I did a combination from many different ones. It needs some work still and a bow but not too bad for my first attempt. It looks navy in the picture but it is actually a beautiful aqua color. I guess the lighting was bad.

 My final made it for this week. I found this cute ribbon at WalMart and knew I wanted to use it somehow. I had this J that painted and put the two together. I love it. I think I might give it to a friend for her birthday!

I am off to cheerleading camp now. I cannot wait to check out all the links later!

Monday Made It Again

Well our beach trip saw more rain than I expected so that left me with time for Monday Made Its! I am linking up with Tara at 4thGradeFrolics.



This is my small group board. I have four small groups. Two are teacher directed and two are independent unless I have a student teacher. I will use Velcro and attach the students pictures and they will move as needed. I just bought a foam board and cut it down to 20 X 20 then added glitter scrapbook paper.



My second made it is coordinating baskets for my small group tables. I used the same scrapbook paper and attached it to the basket with double sided tape. I also laminated it for durability. My Pre-K students can look at the board to see what color they are on and where they will work that day. It works very well. I got my baskets from the Dollar Tree. 

My next made it is my classroom rules in aqua chevron. I am really excited about these and cannot wait to utilize them in my classroom.  If you would like you can download them as a FREEBIE from my TpT store. Just click on the image above.



My next made it is not for school. I updated and organized my workout book as well as made my workout calendar. I cannot show the workouts because they are not mine. However if you are someone who needs workouts you can do right at home then I suggest you check out Taylor Ryan at Fit Womens Weekly! She is fantastic. It is 19.95 a month and you can do most workouts without any equipment and just your body. My friend lost 100 lbs using her workouts!

 I cannot wait to see what everyone else has posted. I am off to check them out. Have a great Monday!

Monday Made It #2

I am back for another exciting link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her fabulous Monday Made It! I was inspired by so many people last week that I cannot wait to see this weeks posts. Be sure to check out the other great ideas.


I have decided to change my classroom theme for next year from Wild to Aqua chevron with black and white. So I bought the schedule clip cards from Teacher At Heart. I love these cards because they are editable and she gave multiple options to chose from for each content area. They also come in several colors. 


 I found these super cute monsters at the Dollar Tree. I knew I wanted to use them somehow but did not decide until later. I made a beginning sounds match out of them. I cannot wait to use them in October when we do monsters. 


I have been wanting to try out the chalkboard writing for sometime now. I found this cute chalkboard at WalMart for $1.00 so I couldn't resist. I don't think it is bad for my first but I have a lot to learn to make creative ones like I see on pinterest! 

Have a great Monday! I am off to another week of cheerleading camp!

Monday Made It 2014

WOW! It has been a LONG time since I have blogged anything. However, I have been extremely busy taking care of my sick parents. My mother has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and my Daddy had a massive heart attack in November. So I apologize for the lack of posts and hope to do better! I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for her Monday Made Its.

WE MADE IT!! After my Daddy's heart attack, he had to wear this ZOLL LifeVest for 6 months until he could have a permanent defibrillator put in because only 26% of his heart is working. It was a long six months of changing this vest in and out and it going off from the slightest movement he made. I am very thankful he had it and Praise the Lord it did not ever have to go off because his heart stopped. So although I did not invent this incredible contraption. I am celebrating that we now have a permanent AICD implanted and no longer have this vest! 

My second Monday made it is this picture frame. It was a craft I did along with my niece. We hot glued sequins onto the wood picture frame in rows by color. I haven't decided on a picture for this frame yet but I love how it shines. 

I did this as the end of the school year gifts for my niece's teachers. I figured what better way to say thanks than with a gift card and of course to Target! I cannot take credit for this idea. I downloaded the card from Landee at The teachers loved the card and it was a HUGE score!

Be sure to link up with Tara and check out the other posts!
