Made it Monday

Hi All!

Today I am linking up with 4th Grade frolics to share my hand made goodies!

I was in need of some new/larger pencil cans for my classroom and I happened to have cans like the one below lying around (empty of course! because these cookies are AMAZING! and no judging... yes we had all three cans of the different kinds.. the lemon is the best!)

So I gathered my goodies (Modge Podge too) ... I stinkin' LOVE this fabric so it is popping up anywhere and everywhere I can put it! lol

And after a half hour of modging ( can that be a verb?), printing labels from the computer and some dry time...

Now I have two cute cans for pencils :)

Also on the made it agenda... my very own lesson plan book!


After seeing this idea on pinterest I decided I could do it too! So I worked it out on power point, got some cute graphics, and had it printed, laminated and bound at Staples. I know a lot of people use the computer planners, but there is something that I love about writing it down... I guess it helps me to remember! A little pricier that buying a generic one at Lakeshore etc... but well worth it because it is printed with MY schedule, specials and all, just the way I want it to look! Super excited about this!

So what have you been making? Ill be heading into my classroom tomorrow to tackle something new... Check back to see what I've done!
