Monday Made It!!!

I have been a busy girl this weekend!  I am a list writer and absolutely LOVE crossing things off my list. So, I am linking up with Tara at Fourth Grade Frolics for her


Last Friday night, I cleared my kitchen table, got out my supplies, and got BUSY!  I first painted this awesome frame.

I got the idea from Pinterest, of course, from this pin.

I was having trouble finding all of the letters, but I finally scored at AC Moore last night. I just need to paint them and put it all together.

I then got busy painting my flower pot for my Tara-inspired birthday treats.

Here is the link to her adorable creation:

Check it out....she was kind enough to share her adorable owl circles. I put my spin on it and came up with these. Love them!

Then, I got out my letters purchased at Christmas when I had my religious experience during my first and only visit to Hobby Lobby while on vacay in Richmond.

These will get magnets on the back and will find their happy home on my black desk.  Love them!

I also got busy on my Writer's Eyes bulletin board. I haven't finished the eyes, but this is what I have so far:

I fashioned them after this pin:

So, I used Powerpoint to whip out these beauties (clip art-Scrappin' Doodles & freebie frames-3 a.m. Teacher).

I {LOVE} how they turned out!  I also designed the pencil on Power Point. I will share once it is laminated.

Next up, I downloaded The Clutter-Free Classroom's Genre Posters.  
My intention is to laminate and wax them to put around my Smartboard. I wanted to make them POP!  So, I got out my scrapbook paper from days long ago....remember the old-fashioned scrapbooking before the digital world took over??? They came out super cute!
Then I finally purchased Melonheadz Build a Teacher clip art and made my mini me!
She can't wait to greet her new students in just four short weeks!  Heading in shortly to try and get my bulletin boards up...yeeeee!!!
Our laminating lady is going to curse my name. I actually am trying to find a Scotch laminator locally. I just want my boards done before I leave for Florida for a week on Saturday. In-service week starts 3 weeks from today. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!  I do have a room paiting date of the 10th. YIPPPPEEEEE!!!!!

Have a great week, y'all!

Love the eyes! I am going to make them in different sizes and hide them around the room (then try to figure why my kids aren't paying attention to me). I was trying to figure out the best way - thanks!

Wow! You got a lot accomplished this week. Your Writer's Eye bulletin board is looking great! The frame is really fun. I'm sure your students will enjoy getting their pictures taken with it.

We(my podmates) ordered our 2nd laminator on Amazon(last summer) and it came fairly quickly. My kiddos put the laminating in backwards and we had to purchase a new one. OOPS! What part of Florida are you coming to?

I love your owl birthday straws and the writer's eyes!! I still use scrapbook paper all the time and scrapbook the old way (when I find the time!). There's nothing like handling the paper with your hands:)
