I am loving all the link ups here on the MMI's (that's short for Monday Made It) BUT......
can I tell you something??????????????
Can I share?????????
This summer's MMI is not focusing me like last summer:/ Boo hoo! I don't know if it's the fact that my summer is already half over and I'm freaking out?!?!?!?! I am freaking out and can't focus on ONE thing..........my mind is EVERYWHERE so I really don't feel like I'm accomplishing much......notice, I haven't had but 1 home made it:( Sad face! I've only finished one book:( Sad face!!! So maybe the fact that it is July and I am quickly running out of summer time, will kick me into gear because I need it!!!!
Alright, enough whining and on to my made its.
This made it has been on my to do list since last summer!
The ever popular and oh so pretty glitter clothespins!
I found glitter in lime and turquoise at Hob Lob. I tried to set up a system so there wouldn't be glitter everywhere!!! It worked really well. I poured the glitter in bowls. Put the mod podge on a clothes pin and then put the clothes pin down (glue side) in the glitter. Lift it out, give it a tab to knock off the extra and done:) When they dried I put on another coat of mod podge.
My next Made It idea/inspiration/pinspiration (that's a word!) is was from my friend Molly at Lessons with Laughter. She is an awesome teacher, makes awesome things for her classroom, and her blog is great. If you have never been there, you have got to go dig through it:) Well worth your time!
A while ago, she blogged about her homework club. Pop over to her blog and read all about it HERE. I really like that idea and am ready for a change. The past 2 years I have had "The Black Book"....it works ok but seemed to always be the same kiddos not doing homework.....that may be the case with this new system but I really want to give it a try.
The big difference between mine and Molly's is that I decided to use numbers instead of pictures. The number idea I got last year from the amazing Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher. (You can read about that HERE. Dig through her blog too because it's awesome and she uses the numbers several ways) I will be adding and blogging more about numbers thanks to Teri!
I bought a large pizza pan from Wallie world. I was going to paint it but couldn't find a color that seemed right and I really think I like it this way anyway. Gray is one of my colors and silver is close to gray, right?
I can't wait to give this a shot. Thanks Molly and Teri for your inspiration, sharing, and ideas!
