Monday Made Its! Cross them off my list!!!

I am so excited to link up with the fabulous Tara from Fourth Grade Frolics!
I saw this on Pinterest many moons ago and loved it, so I finally made it today.  I think it will be so cute above where my students make their lunch choices.  I went back to the original pin, but it stated that it was linked to a place that I didn't want to go. So if you were the creator of this, please let me know and I would love to give you credit.

I was so excited to head to The School Box today and purchase some black and white borders for my classroom, and I thought this one set off the red and white so well.  Please excuse my icky picture...can't hang it yet as I will paint my walls.  And, I don't like the clear plastic silverware, so they aren't glued down yet. Plus, they are crooked!! I also want to print the words on cardstock as you can see where I spliced them.  I am a little anal...the checkerboard pattern drove me crazy!  I put the lunch calendar in a sheet protector to allow easy monthly updates.  Cross it off my list!

My next made-it is one of which I am extremely proud.  I wanted to make numbers for the Five for Friday linky as I had admired them on others' blogs, and I love things all matchy-matchy and pretty.  So, with the help of the wonderfully talented Megan at I teach. What's your superpower?'s video tutorials about how to enhance your blog, I made them.  I had never used pixlr before, but it truly was as easy as she stated.  I watched her video on how to make a button. So, here is one of the five that I made. I thought they turned out super cute!

Do you ever see words written out and think they just don't look right?  I had that sensation when I spelled the number words on each button.  Could be because they were typed vertically.

Anyway, at least I can cross two things off my list of 425,698 things I need to do this summer.  I exaggerate.  It's only 350,000. ;)

Cheers! Time for a cocktail! :)
