My head is bursting with Pinterest inspired/wonderful bloggy bud creations that I must make for the new school year!!!! I MUST!!!!!
BUT, I also have a home list a mile long of things I want to get accomplished this summer at my house as well....paint my bedroom yummy grey.......paint the patio furniture......clean.......I'm not sure if it's just me or do all houses suffer at times during the school year??????
So, here is my game plan......hope you think it's a good idea........................it has 2 purposes....
1: to share and hopefully inspire
2: to keep me focused and productive
So each Monday I am going to do a post called "Made It Monday" and will do a "reveal" of a project that I have done for my classroom. I figure if I do one a week, that's good and if I do one house project a week I should be at least putting a dent in the mile long lists!!! It will also be a lot of pressure if I say I'm gonna post every Monday about it then I'll have to do it......haha.......it will keep me on task and focused and productive over the summer:))) EEEK! It's summer break and I still sound like a teacher......(I don't like pressure but work pretty well under it)
Now let me say right now that so far the projects I have done and the ones on my list are not original.......I hope to come up with an original one or two but the wonderful, amazing blog world full of creative teachers has me so preoccupied that there is no time for original!!!! As I am posting my inspired projects, know that I will always give credit and links (as long as I can find them) to the originals:)
And, if you get inspired to make something, might even be fun to have a guest blogger share their "Made It"...........hmmmmm.............
Ok, so my classroom "Made It" reveal is something I am oh so excited about!!!! As soon as I saw this on Pinterest I went nuts!!!! Oh my word!!!!!!!!
So simple yet gonna be super awesome on my whiteboard!!! I used several digital papers and backgrounds from: 3 AM Teacher, KPM Doodles, and Lilly Bimble. Go check out their stores and blogs:)
I preprinted the subjects on the paper because my handwriting is not cute:/ The frames are from Dollar Tree. I also grabbed a couple packs of photo paper from Dollar Tree too and printed on that and it turned out so nice:)) (Photo paper at Dollar Tree.....who knew!!!!)
Sorry the pics are a little blurry........
So that is my first classroom "Made It" reveal. Hope you like it and are inspired to maybe make one for your classroom. (P.S. I could not track this on Pinterest so if this idea is yours, please let me know and I will add your link to this post:))
Huge stack of pavers we moved out of the trailer and to the backyard.
Packing sand down and ground leveled.
