May Monday Made It! (Posting Sunday!)

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I am posting this a little early....well, because it's already late for this month!!!
We only have 10 school days left with has been so busy, I feel like just making it here is my "made it"
I have been a little more into home made its this time......not sure if it's the end of the year blues kicking in or the stress or what.....maybe it's the fact that we are back in school at the end of July!!!  Is there anyone else out their who has summers that seem to be shrinking?????
You know when I'm in my yard gardening I'm getting my therapy:)  That takes me to my first made its.
I planted some more plants in the ground around the rocks and filled a few more pots!
Can't wait to sit back there and read:)
I think it was my very first Monday Made It that my husband and daughter made our back patio!
Well today my hubby made a little small paver pad for my bird feeder bench.
Yes, I know I have a ton of feeders!  I LOVE sitting in the backyard and watching all the birds:)  Put the feeders out people and they will come:)
Super love how this cardinal got in the pic!
Now, hopefully I have gotten enough yard therapy to make it through the next 2 weeks:)
Didn't make this but changed it from wall art to jewelry holder...that's kind of a made????
I got the awesome turquoise panel at Hobby Lobby!
At the end of the GOTR season I wanted to make something fun to give them at our celebration:
I wanted to make something to give my kiddos to let them know how much I adore them:)  We have talked and talked about reading over the summer so I made them these bookmarks with a note to remind them how special they are.  I hope it keeps them working hard over the summer;)
The adorable stars are from Creative Clips!  Love her stuff!!!
Thanks for popping by:)  Don't forget to grab my button when you link up your fun!!!

  4. I remember reading that post about your daughter helping you make the back patio. It looks so calm and inviting. I can't imagine going back to school at the end of July! It is amazing how my mind is set on what the school year should be after growing up and teaching in the north. Wow!!

  11. I love your backyard. I think it would take a year of Monday Made Its to get my back yard in shape! lol You have once again inspired me. Now I feel like I am ready to try to get to work on my screened in patio, but I don't think I can start that project until school is out. Is getting organized a Made It? That's what I want to do for school. I'm like you, our school starts back on August 5.

  12. Had to laugh at your feeders. We just put up a hummingbird feeder. You'd think we put a big screen tv in te backyard! We spent forever Sunday morning watching tem. So fun! Your yard looks great.
