Monday Made It {July 21st}

Summer is winding down for me, only two weeks left. Wah!! I've got a busy week ahead, but as always, I am thrilled to link up with 4thGrade Frolics for Monday Made It

 I checked some Pinterest projects off my to-make list this week. This first one is a birthday board for my classroom.  
It was simple! Just some canvas, paint, and vinyl. Ok, it was tedious tracing the chevron... I looked for that chevron painters tape, but couldn't find it. 
Next, project was another easy one. I made a little "curtain" for my classroom window.
I've always wanted something to hang in front of the ugly blinds, but it was never high on my priority list.... and I don't sew. I found this little project and knew I could handle it.

Like my neighbor's house? Ha! This picture isn't great, but you get the point.
Lastly, I have to show you exactly how OCD I am. Every year my brand new scissors go missing and my highlighters run away. I usually mark my scissors with an S, but I decided to take it a step farther this year.

Don't get my wrong, I have no problem with Little Jimmy using my scissors for the entire year. I just want them back. And now, they look pretty.  We will see how long the washi tape stays on. I hope forever. ;)

I am hosting a craft night tomorrow and am still looking for a project to make for myself. Hopefully I can get a few ideas from everyone linking up.


  1. I LOVE the ribbon "curtain" you made! There are so many possibilities with've got me thinking. Good luck on keeping your scissors and highlighters.

  2. I lost so many scissors this year! I was trying to figure out how to mark them. My students took them to another room for another subject and I kept sending them back to find my stuff. I thought I would use washi tape too but have the piece hang out like a flag from the handles. I wonder if that would work for me... Thanks so much for sharing!
