Monday Made It {7/29} & 50 Follower Giveaway Reminder!

I'm so excited to share my Monday Made It goods this week! I've been busy creating digital products and crafting things for the house we are {hopefully} going to be closing on in a few weeks {fingers crossed, it's been a rough road!}

My first MMI is something I've had on my to-do list since LAST SUMMER! I finally got around to doing it last week. My boyfriend bought me a sewing machine for my birthday in March and this was my first sewing project! I had received two directors chairs for free last summer and had big plans of painting them white and making new seat covers. Here's how they turned out!!

I just love the chevron :) 

Next up, I spent many long hours sweating in the 90+ degree CT weather {not to mention the humidity!} to complete this dresser renovation:



I'm going to start working on refinishing the nightstands this week! My last home made it is a starburst mirror made out of skewers {yes, what you use to grill food on!}...such an inexpensive and quick house decoration!!

Now, on to my classroom made its! I'm jumping onto the "brag tag" bandwagon this year! I've read such great things about them and decided to give them a try. I always like to try and create things myself so that it matches my style, so I created a few brag tag collections that are available to purchase at my TPT store:  

Brag Tags Collection {Modern}

 Brag Tags Homework Club Edition

 Brag Tags Reading Goal Edition

Brag Tags Super Student Edition

And my LAST classroom MMI {I know, longest post ever!} is a collection of coupons and tickets to use in your classroom. I am going to be using them with my Chevron & Chalkboard Clip Chart instead of a treasure box this year. 

Don't forget to enter my 50 follower giveaway!!

Monday Made It {7/15}

I've been busy again his week creating digital items for my classroom while I visit my sister and her family in Washington State!

First up! Since I'm switching from third to second this year, I made Common Core "I Can" Statement Cards for both ELA {Reading, Writing, Language, Speaking & Listening, Language} and Math!

And now, the one I'm the proudest and most excited about!!! Inspired by everyone's DIY Teacher Planner's... I created my own!

I am going to be adding more styles in the next few days. All of these items are, of course, available for purchase at my TPT store! I will be offering a 20% discount on all of my newly created products until July 18th!

Be sure to head over to Tara's to check out all of the other amazing Monday Made It's!

Thanks for looking :)

Monday Made It {My First This Summer!}

Wahooo!! I'm so excited to be linking up for the first time this summer with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!

Since I'm across the country visiting my sister in WA, I have no room in my suitcase for tangible MMI's, so I've been working on digital things.

So, without further ado-- here's my first MMI:

And my second MMI:

Both of these products are available in my TPT Store! Be sure to check out all of the other wonderful MMI's :)
