I am soooo excited to be kicking off the weekly Monday Made It:) For those of you who are new to this, this whole thing started a few years ago as an accountability thing for me alone. I was trying to stay motivated and focused and not let my summer break pass me by. Well, then I got several requests to make it a linky and Monday Made It was born. I know a lot of you aren't out yet and I just finished my first almost week of summer vacation. I'm not gonna lie....I need a little mental/school break but am super excited to get this going:)
Have to kick this off in style!!! My first made it I didn't make BUT had made! The amazing Megan of A Bird In Hard Designs created buttons for Monday Made It to match my new blog that she designed. Aren't they too cute?!?!
So grab your buttons to use on your Monday Made It posts. Click HERE to go to Google docs to download your set:) Thank you again Megan for the cuteness!!!!!!!
I REALLY want to focus on some home made its this summer.....I feel like my home gets so neglected during the school year:/ I LOVE succulents! The ones I planted from MMI a year or two ago are still going strong.
I decided to plant a couple in the house. I love to use "different" items as pots. For these I used vintage silver and some mercury glass votive holders.
My next made it project is gonna be HUGE. We, well by we I mean mostly my hubs, and I are redoing our outdated kitchen this summer! This is going to be a huge undertaking....because we are doing it ourselves. I have what's called a galley kitchen....kinda like a long hallway. So we are getting all new white wooden cabinets and this is the tile and countertop I picked out and we ordered!!!
So this will be a major work in progress (that I hope we survive...lol) I'll post updates as I can:/
Another home made it....I wanted to change out my dining room table setting because they were so dark and fall/winter....told ya my house gets neglected:( It's in the 90s here in Florida! So I went to the fab Pier One, grabbed some goodies and made a few little changes to lighten up the table.
I found this at Pier One and fell in LOVE. It's chippy not dirty as my bud Farley would say....I think it's a charger but I'm using it in the middle of my table.
Dark fall/winter table....
New, lighter summer table:)
Of course I have to have one school made it! This little idea came to me while I was running. I don't know about you but each year my classroom uses technology more and more! AR, Pearson, Fcat Explorer, I-Ready.....and with each of these is a different username and password. If I could have a dollar for each time I heard
"Mrs. Eiken, what's my password?"
"Mrs. Eiken, what's my username?"
Are you kidding me?!?! Half the time I can't even find my classroom keys!!!! (That's why I have a teacher's assistant as one of my jobs:)
Anyway, it got me to thinking and then Login Loops were born:p
Now everyone will have their own set to keep at their desks and no more interrupting and asking me:) Happy teacher, happy kids:)
So these are laminated. Once I get my class list I will write their names on them with a sharpie. Then once I get their different logins I will add those.
Right now I have each one set up with 3 tags (AR, Pearson, I-Ready) if they need more I will just print more sheets and add to them:)
The top line is for the name of the program or website:) The rest is self explanatory. And since this is the kick off, I decided to make them a freebie at my store:) Hope they are something you can use. If you download them, would love it if you left me some feedback love:)
Ok gang! It's your turn!!! Can't wait to see all the ideas I will get this summer. Please remember your link up doesn't have to be all teacher/school related.....a freebie every once in a while is awesome, recipes are fun, gardening and home made its are so important. Gardening is my therapy ya'll. Remember to take time to sharpen the saw this summer:)) If you're an Instagrammer, don't forget to link up there too with #mondaymadeit
