I am so excited to finally be linking up with Tara for a Monday Made It. I have a love/hate relationship with this link up. I LOVE all the wonderful ideas that are shared, but I hate all the time I spend looking at all the ideas and then feeling the need to add to my to do list.
I'm sure you can relate.
This summer and school year I'm keeping things pretty low key. My husband and I are in the process of adopting and the children will be moving in soon. My focus and time has been on the children and preparing to bring them home.
But I still like to relax and do some creating for my classroom.
One of the first things I made this summer was a binder cover for my teacher binder. You can read about what inside my binder here.
I normally keep my PD records in this binder, but this summer I have enough good information from workshops that I needed a separated binder.
So I made another binder cover. :)
I decided this year to buy a new toolbox and start over instead of spray painting mine again. I also decided to laminate the labels and put them on the outside. I'm not sure how I feel about this yet. I'll use it awhile and see how it goes before changing it.
I used Disney paint chips from Wal-Mart to make a calendar. This was not as easy as I had planned. I had a hard time getting the squares lined up perfectly. I finally called it good and moved on.
I used 5 different patterns for the month cards.
