I'm sure there are tons of you waking up or on your way to #tptorlando for the Teachers Pay Teachers conference! I'm so excited for you. Sadly, I am not going this year....and it's right here, like in Florida, like I wouldn't have to fly across the county (hate flying) to get there.....yep, all true but I have this little thing coming up......my daughter's wedding. Family comes first! I will miss getting to hang out with lots of my bloggy buds!!
I was able to get a few things made this past week and I need to because my summer is quickly coming to an end and then the beginning of the school year will be here and the wedding so, I need to get my ducks in a row quickly:)
I love all the made its you all have been linking up this summer! I am excited to see newbies and so thankful for those of you that return each year to link up! One think I love the most about Monday Made It is the ideas and inspiration that come from others. I don't know about you, but I don't have tons of time to search all over to find things so when I see something linked up and it's already made, even better!!! Why reinvent the wheel, right?
Before I jump into my made its, I wanted to chat about a few "rules"/blogger etiquette, especially if you are new to this linky:)
- please make sure you leave some love at the blogs you visit:) It's always nice to read kind words and you don't need to tell people to come to you....they will;)
- If you see something in the linky or anywhere else for that matter, that someone has taken the time to make, please don't copy it and claim it as your own
- If you make something as one of your made its that is a product of someone else, PLEASE be sure and give the correct source credit and a link to them or their product
Ok, I think that covers it:) Now on to the made its!
Had to get my gardening therapy in this last week....yes, in the Florida heat....it has been horrible:/
To say that the bed outside my front door was a little overgrown is an understatement....
See???? Told ya:/
So I ripped up all the plants and then put down pavers....the funny thing about this is, as you can see, it is not perfect AND my husband does this for a living....swimming pools, fountains, tile, decks.....so I am sure the not perfectly level pavers are making him nuts but that's ok. I did it and I love it:)
It still needs some additions but this is a bit improvement!
That made it about killed me with the heat and honestly thought it was going to be my only one...lol.
This next made it is from a sweet friend that I am going to miss hugging on this week!
She is a doll and has SO MANY amazing ideas!!! When I saw her post it bookmarks on her IG feed, I knew I had to make them!
If you want to grab a set of Joanne's bookmarks, click here! And if you have never visited her blog, it's a must! She has wonderful ideas!!! I can't wait for my kiddos to use these!
My next made it is from another bloggy bud who also has INCREDIBLE ideas, info, and fun on her blog!
A few weeks back she shared about using Instagram photos in the classroom for an Inspiration Writing Wall. I am not going to explain it here....you HAVE GOT to go read her post! It is full of info and inspiration and you can find it HERE!
When I read her post, I was so inspired and excited to do this as well in my classroom! This will be a wonderful center rotation;)
I have the perfect spot to put this too! I have these not so pretty cabinet doors that will be perfect for this;)
I am in the process of deciding what type of teacher planner I want to use this year...what ever I decide, I usually have #allthethings in the same binder which can get a little messy, so I decided to make a binder for my student data:)
Pink is my fave color!!!! I just got a new pink chevron rug for my classroom:)
This is my last made it;) Before I went back to school to be a teacher, and I was a stay at home mommy, I designed jewelry. I love to fiddle with that again every once in a while. This is a simple little made it, but so me and I love it:)
Two simple pieces from JoAnns...some leather and a turquoise piece.
I made a wrap bracelet!
and here it is with some friends for the bracelet party;)
Ok, enough from me:) Can't wait to see what's in store this week! Thank you all for linking up and for the blog love you leave :) Have a blessed week everyone!!!
