I'm back again for another Monday Made-It! I missed last week's and felt all out of sorts. To be truthful, the things I've been 'making' haven't been super duper cute enough for me to share with all of you. They've been more of those not so fun things on my to-do list. BUT I do have a couple of cute bits and pieces to share. :)
First up is a little back to school prezzy for my teammates. They're glass blob (?) magnets for our chalkboards. The scrapbook paper came in a pack from Michaels, I adore the school bus one! I packaged these with a note saying, "If we 'stick' together, we'll have a great year!"
I finally got a teacher toolbox! I've been debating about it all summer and took the plunge this week. I'd really, really love to get rid of the giant monstrosity that is my desk this year...but storage space is precious in my school. (Last year I was scolded for removing one teeny tiny table) SO my plan is to use my kidney-bean shaped table as my desk area and move the big desk to the back of the room and use it as a writing center. Here's to hoping this will work!
The labels came from Ladybug's Teacher Files, I think she is simply amazing and shares the most wonderful things! Now comes the debate...do I put white paper in the front of the drawers to conceal what is inside...or do I leave it them open?
I'm leaning towards concealing for privacy...and then I don't have to look at the hidden clutter :)
My last little share was also inspired by another blogger I idolize, Molly at Lessons with Laughter. She made an adorable chalkboard for her classroom, now mine doesn't look like much without any chalk writing on it, but I still love it! I picked up the frame on sale at Target and used this amazing chalkboard contact paper I ordered from Amazon. This stuff was super
cool and easy to work with! Confession: I'm an absolutely horrid spray painter and decided to stay away this year.:)
One last little image that just makes me smile. :) I can't believe summer is coming to a close and there is so much to be done!
