Made It Monday and The Summer is almost over

Can you believe that summer is almost over? I got back on the 21st! I cry. Seriously, where did my long summer off go? I guess I can't complain. Last year we started on the 10th. Don't the school gods know that I seriously have about 1.21 million things left to do to be ready. If I stopped going on Pinterest or Instagram, I would likely have been done in June! UGH you people! I joke, I joke, I kid, I kid! I love all yall, but it is costing me a fortune and hours of my time! I should be on the elliptical trying to lose this weight from my back surgery - however my naptimes are spent hurrying through project after project! :)

Well, I have a few Monday Made Its to share.
Made It Number 1 
I bought these letters a few weeks ago, and wasn't sure of what to do with them. 

So I painted them silver. But I just didn't like it! 

So I decided to put scrapbook paper over them with mod podge. 

I even tried washi tape - see it on the D? Yep, I didn't think so.

Here is the R - I was so mad about that bubble, however - it went away on its own! 

Traced backwards

Mod Podged on. 

It was just missing something!!! It looks plain still!!

Enter the beads! 
TA - DA!

Aren't they beautiful! They have such character! 

I just love them

I went to the Justin Timberlake/Jay Z concert in Baltimore this weekend! Oh my it was fantastic! I just had a great time! I loved the food 

Look at the girl in the back photo bombing us! hahah I love that! 
I am the blonde in between the brunettes! I won't post any other pictures. Lord knows that I drank way too much, and if you follow me on Instagram, you know I had a good time. I also had a fun time with my hashtags, yelling at Kayne West for saying no one would come to this concert - Let me tell you how wrong he was...
It was PACKED and I mean packed. it was a fantastic show!

I woke up hung over and made a new blog button! How cute - right?! 
Made It Number 2

So I came home with a bunch of things I wanted to accomplish during naptime 

First, I tried wrapping it with paper. Dang that took forever. X that. 

So I painted them. 

Looks better painted - right?!

The L was wrapped, the A and R painted. I like the paint too. 

Here are my letters painted. 

I took this sheet of lace and put it on the letters and just painted over them

How cute - right?

up close!

I added a few sparkly buttons - how flipping cute!

I will hang it like this on my wall in my library! 

                                               Made it Number 3
I spent seriously 2 weeks trying to perfect my circles for my 100 number line. Then I thought holy smokes, I will need to cut by hand 100 numbers. No thanks. 

I picked up this Martha Stewart cutter for $10.60 after my competitors coupon of 50% off plus our teachers discount! whoot. It works perfectly - go pick one up - but put a cutting board under - because it is sharp and will cut whatever is under it. Oh and these are laminated! I printed them, and laminated then cut. No double cutting. no fraying or pulling apart! 

Made It Number 4

1 inch hole puncher - check

Scrapbook stickers that are clear - check 

Adhesive magnets - check 

twenty  minute project - check! 

No laminating, no mod podge and no falling apart. My other ones - a few dropped and the stone shot off - I can only imagine my firsties dropping them and everyone diving to grab them off the floor. 
Hope this works easier. oh and the circles were $1.99 without any coupon - in my book that is a score especially when they come 24 to a pack.

 Made It Number 5

I got this clock for free from a friend who never used it. I just wanted to say when lunch was so that kiddos would stop asking me. I have the cheap target ones, and it works fine, but I wanted lunch, end of day and specials.  

First coat of paint. 

Looking good

I made numbers and decided how I was going to place them. Man, being a perfectionist is not ok with this type of task. 

This is all glued on, but still all wet. 

Monday FAILED it
Oh - my pocket Chart 
It died...not dyed...
What a mess! 
Apparently, the thicker the material is, it won't dye.. dang it. 

I'll be buying a new pocket chart. 

I am working on number lines and here are a few that are finished! 
You can click on each picture to purchase the color set you would like!
