Monday Made It!

It's my favorite bloggy day of the week :-) I can't wait to get looking at all of your great creations so I can steal admire your ideas and want them for myself!

In fact, I've done just that with this week's creations... I loved Tara's ideas of her READ letters and planner divider pages, so I made ones to fit my room. {Check out her original posts about them here and here!}

#1 - READ letters: They are almost complete... I'm still debating on the ribbon that should go across the middle. I'm choosing between a yellow ribbon or a simple white glittery ribbon. Thoughts?

#2 - Lesson Plan book divider pages: These will go into plastic sleeves and into my 3-ring binder that I made last year {here}. The papers are from the April Showers collection from Just So Scrappy, the font is from Kevin & Amanda, and the frame is from the wonderful 3am Teacher! You can click on any of the pictures below to download a PDF for yourself if you like :) {Ok, Blogger was freaking out on me, and only 2 of the pics are linked... sorry!!}

I've got some great plans and ideas for the rest of the summer as far as creating goes... I've got a toolbox on its way to me (our Lowe's was all sold out!); I have crates waiting to have seats added to them; I have the advent boxes that can be turned into letter storage ready to be painted; I have notecards ready to make and send out to welcome my kids; I have foam board ready for a "my first day of first grade" frame! Whew! I've been a busy little shopper this weekend... And my guest room has been TAKEN OVER!

Our school's theme is rock 'n roll/rockstar stuff this coming year. I found these great guitar shapes that I am going to have my kiddos decorate the first week of school with their table teams or a buddy or something... I'm still thinking that over, but I'm sure they'll love the glitter glue and poms! I'm going to pick up some other fun sticky items for them, too!

I'm also linking up with Ladybug's Teacher Files to share my June shopping... I'm sure I'll have a bit  more to share during the July edition...!! :-) I love summer!! Click the pic to share your shopping fun!

  3. I love your guitars so much! I'm doing a rock and roll theme for the first time this year. Where did you find those guitars? There is a cute "rock star" sign in the art aisle at target right now that you might need to check out:)

    1. The guitars are from Michael's... love that store!

  4. Everything looks great. I think yellow would be cute on your letters. Well I'm sure both would be cute but I'm voting for yellow. I think the notebook dividers are fabulous and it was great of you to share them.

  5. Love all your finds! Those guitars are awesome!


  6. You HAVE been busy shopping!! You go girl!
