My First Monday Made It!!

Hooray!  I'm so excited to link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for my first Monday Made It!



OK, you need to know that I am not a really crafty person.  I JUST bought my first hot glue gun a few weeks ago... which I'm sure is a teacher sin!  AND most of my stuff is still up at school and I haven't been by there.  So I've been trying to make some things with what I have at the house!

I saw this adorable pin on Pinterest and had to repin it!  I thought it would be super cute for a child's birthday!  But since the hubby and I don't have kids yet, I decided to take the idea and spin it a little to work for my classroom.

Well, remember this sneak peek (from this post) about what I was making for Monday Made It?



Here's what I made!


It's a 2L sign for my classroom.  My school names classes by their grade level and last name initial.  I will be teaching 2nd grade next year and my last name is Lacy so my class will be 2L.  I used a TON of pom-poms and a foam board from the dollar store.  I hot glued all the pom-poms on the cut-outs.




I also posted about these seat covers in this post.  They inspired me to make something like it to recognize my Star Student.

Here's what I made!



I will put this on the seat of our Star Student!  I used more foam board from the dollar tree, cut out the star, spray painted it and glued a hair band on the back!  I'm also planning on making an extra one with ribbon glued on the back to see which one I like better!



I also made this!


I found this classroom sign from The Hands-On Teacher.  She even has a freebie to print off!  I just used the saying and typed it up myself!



OK, one more thing!



The hubby and I got married last September and had a WONDERFUL photographer, but we didn't want to pay a boat-load for a wedding album.  So I made one on Shutterfly!  I waited to order it until there was a good deal - free shipping and 30% off!  Have I expressed how much I LOVE Shutterfly!  And no, they don't pay me to say that!!

  10. Hey Cyndi- You visited our website not too long ago and had asked if we lived in Missouri. I laughed when I read your comment because right before reading it, I had just posted about my trip to St. Louis. Sorry about the comment about not being a Cardinals fan lol. I'm from KC, I have to love the Royals. I do love St. Louis though and said so in my post. :) Check out our website and see what you think about my pics of our hotel and the Arch.

    Thanks for following us! We're now following you, also. :)
