Happy Monday! This post is gonna be packed full of pics so buckle up! Make sure you read all the way to the end because there's a little surprise....
You know gardening is like therapy for me and this kitchen reno is killing me so I had to get some gardening in this week.
I planted a huge herb pot! I have been working towards the clean eating thing and don't like sodium in my food (blow up like a balloon) and most things have sodium so I decided to plant some herbs to use with out cooking!
There's basil, savory, thyme, lavender, rosemary, and chocolate mint. I wish you could scratch and sniff!!! The smells as I would brush against the leaves when I was filling in the soil.....soooooooo nice!! You really can't tell from the pic but this is a huge tub....an old wash tub actually:)
My next Monday Made It was a little time consuming but turned out so fun!
Thanks to the lovely Kristen from Ladybug's Teacher Files, I now have customized Pinterest board covers. Her tutorial is fab, just like her, and so easy to follow. I am too excited with the results:)
My next made it is for my classroom:) I made new letters and subject cards for my front board.
Here are some pics from last year:
This is where I put their goals/I can statements for each subject for the day.
This is where I write their homework each day.
Sorry they're a little blurry.
I will be replacing those with these:) (and new fun borders!)
I got a little carried away and the letters for Learning Goals are a little big...lol. I made the homework letters a tad bit smaller. I also need to get some cute ribbon for the I Can banner...ran out of time:/
My last made it I'm super excited about! I made a new friend this week:)
This is Kim. She has a passion for books and recycles old, torn, and thrown out books in a wonderful way! Her story and passion for saving and recycling books is wonderful!!!
She even recycles maps! Love how she used a map to wrap my bracelets:)
Here is a quote from Kim:
"Books are magical, they give you the ability to go on a jungle safari one minute and a deep sea dive with mermaids the next, but what happens when books have gotten lots of love from years of use? The pages get creased, dog-eared and ripped, they bend or even start to fall off. That’s where my Mom Helen and I come in, and this is where the story of Trashy Crafter begins. "
I LOVE everything about her fun little business;)
I am going to be featuring Kim's story on my blog Wednesday so PLEASE pop back by and read about her passion:) Kim is going to give one lucky winner a set of 2 bracelets:) I will announce the winner on MMI next week:) You can check her jewelry out and her story HERE!
