Monday Made It! and new items!

Another Monday! I dabbled in a few things last week. I didn't like how a few turned out... so I won't show those. Anyhoo. I started on a new type of set... I still haven't finished all the Alphabet sets that I want since I will be doing them all in D'Nealian, BUT since I want polka dots for my class this year - everything needs to match. I won't be using this one, but I finished a new pack. I'm working on a primary colored one, bright polka dot, and have already finished an Aqua and Pink polka dot that will be up later today - it decided to be difficult when saving to a PDF.

There is ALMOST 200 pages of labels, word wall letters, calendar numbers, pennant banners with letters, nameplates, binder covers/inserts, schedule cards, a voice level chart and SO much more. Go check it out.

NOW for my Monday Made It..

#1: Have you all seen those 4pk. corkboard in the school supply area in Walmart? Well I saw them and thought what in the world can I do with them? I bought the .97 fabric and covered them. How cute will that be on the wall and to be able to stick paper and other things up using tacks? I initially added fabric around it, BUT I hated it. It got pulled off...

#2: I've had three canvases still packaged up from where I made something last month. Painting time. I absolutely HATE that I painted words on them - but it was cute before I painted. Can you tell where I painted outside the lines? Can someone teach me how to make bubble letters as well? I think I may do these over and not do the words. I'm still laughing at my M and B... The polka dots are cute though. EH.

#3: This was another slight fail... I had my try at Pom Poms... The pink one I forgot to cut it after I folded it. I actually like it better than the other two I made. I made a blue one, but didn't use enough paper.

#4: I have this website pinned or in my bookmarks, but I cannot remember which one it is. She has the CUTEST inspirational, school, crazy quotes. And they are always SO freaking cute. I bought two of the .97 frames that are black from Walmart. I painted them both white. And then slightly painted over them again. I wanted the white to show a little. I might even sand them down some so it can show more. It looks smudgy and I LOVE IT on the glimmery purple. The soap frame, I painted pink before I painted on the gold - so there is hints of pink throughout.

This is week 9, but 2 for me... I should have joined way EARLIER. Go check out the rest of the Monday Made Its..
