Happy Monday Made It! I have had a crazy/busy/I won't go into details week. Just trust me when I say, it's been interesting:/
Ok, my first made it I should have shared a while ago with the rules and spaced it.
These I didn't make but the FAB Megan from I Teach What's Your Superpower and A Bird in Hand Designs did:) It's my Monday Made It buttons! You can grab them HERE to use in your Monday Made It Posts:) Sorry I didn't share these earlier but now you have them:)
I have been busy creating. One thing I made was a new classroom set. (also with digital papers from Megan!) I'm glad I already have quite a chunk of money sunk in my new colors...I love this set just as much as my new one:)
I also made a new set of Take a Ticket in a Kids version because I can't get enough of these Scrappy Kids from Graphics from the Pond!!!
Take a Ticket Kids Version
This next made it is from a teacher that has been rocking out her Monday Made Its and posting some awesome stuff!!! AS soon as I saw this made it, I knew I had to have it and make it for my classroom!
Here's her box! You have to visit her blog and read all about it and all her other fab stuff!!! Her color scheme is so calming!! I LOVE IT!!!
So I couldn't find a cute box like Kelli's so I had to make one....I finally found this metal recipe box at Michaels but I didn't like how low the cards sat in the box. So, I grabbed some cork too!
I cut the cork to fit the bottom of the box and it raised the cards:)
After cork with my husband's hand photo bomb:/
SOOOOO cute!!! I wish like crazy I would have had this resource last year....I had an amazing group of readers that would have eaten this up:)
I added some burlap ribbon and the tag and we are all set to go:)
You seriously need to check her blog out! FULL of awesomeness!!
Of course I had to get a garden made it in;) I doubled my workout one day and hauled a bunch of pavers from our second lot to the backyard to expand what I call "the bird seed area". This is basically the spot where the majority of the feeders and bird seed are. My husband put down pavers for me to set things on to hold the seed. Well, for the life of me I can't find the before pics....I know I have them but give up trying to find where so you will just have to trust me when I say I made this area a lot bigger:)
My final made it is my classroom crate seats!! I have had these for a few years....never had a problem with them....until this past year....and 2 broke....BUT it wasn't because my kids were too big....I had a group of "rockers"....like they would rock on the crate and then it would crack and then eventually break:( So I do have to replace a few of the black crates.
These were last years. The fabric held up really well. I only brought home one crate for storage purposes but you get the idea:)
The tools you need are a staple gun, scissors, needle nose pliers, and some muscles...lol
I used the needle nosed pliers to pull off the old fabric and most of the staples:)
Then I laid out the fabric with the board (and foam) on top:) The duct tape around the edges of the board is so the edges don't rub and rip the fabric.
I also add the ribbon pulls to lift the lid off if I want to use them as storage...which so far I haven't:/
Whew! That's it for me!!! I should have paced myself...have no clue what to do for next week:) LOL! Can't wait to see what everyone links up this week to inspire others with:) Thanks for popping by and for linking up:) Have a wonderful week!!
