And what a wonderful time to have one!!! I'm down here blowing away in Florida thanks to my friend Debby!! Ok, I'm not blowing away and we aren't even close to the "target" but boy is it windy. Yesterday a wind gust picked the metal basketball post out of it's base and blew it down. We are in store for lots more today so great time to be blog stalking and getting inspired!!
Again, THANK YOU all for linking up and all the wonderfully yummy ideas!!! It makes my head spin with joy!!!
I have 2 Classroom Made Its to share today:
The first was inspired last week from Confessions of a Teaching Junkie's post about the magnetic poetry kits she made using the wonderful Jen's awesome kit at Runde's Room. Jen's kit is brilliant and free!!! Gotta love that! Now............who knew there was such a thing as magnetic paper?!?!?!?!?!? Not I!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you kidding me?????? Oh, the possibilities!!!! (you don't want to be in my mind right now.......lots of chaos!! See?? Spaz!!) Anywho, I was totally inspired to make my own kits
I am calling them Poetry Pots.
They will be oh so fun to use during Work on Writing in our Daily 5. (or word work for that matter!)
These are set to go. I have several cookie sheets in my classroom waiting for these cute sets:)
Classroom Made It #2: A welcome sign to hang outside my classroom door. Now this was inspired from Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten and if I'm understanding the post right, her sister's classroom. I have had this baby pinned for a long time and finally got around to figuring out how I could make it and doing it:))
(p.s. you can see the new color of my walls here behind the sign)
I have had a few of you ask me to put some of my Made Its in my stores......well, the ones with digital papers are too big so I have to figure out how to do that. The welcome sign I have added to my store.There are 3 color themes. One with bright colors and backgrounds with black (the one in the pic). I also made a Black/White/Gray themed one.....
and one with a Chocolate theme:
If you want to check them out, you can do that HERE.
Home Made It:
Now, last week I missed my Home Made It. Well, I am making up for it this week! I have 2, but one you are only gonna get a small peek at one of them........
WE painted my bedroom!!!!! Amazing what a little coat of paint will do! My bedroom is now a yummy gray color:))) It's called Pewter Mug from Home Depot.
I also painted a vintage dresser that was in my bedroom to......guess what color????????
Turquoise!!!!! I LOVE it!!!! I painted it and then sanded it in a few places and then waxed it.
The color is Martha Stewart's Lagoon.
(People, these pictures don't show the true color..it's brighter than the pic, and so fun!!!)
Now, the glass knobs are vintage. The silvery ones are from Hobby Lobby but I am missing 2 until next week:(( I hate waiting!!!!! God is growing me in the patience department;) So when it is done, only the top drawer will have the glass knobs, the rest will be the metal pulls.
If you look closely, you can see the gray color of my walls:)
Now grab your java and let's get our craft on!!!!!!
Update woopsy!!! If you already posted could you pretty please come back and grab my cute button by The 3 AM Teacher. I was in such a hurry this morning to get this posted and run before the next bad batch of rain came through, I forgot to add it:/ Well, I didn't beat the rain.....I can now cross running in a Tropical storm off my bucket list!!! Kinda refreshing BUT I couldn't see where I was running.....thank God the drivers could:)
