Monday Made It - Where has the time been going?!

Hey all
The quickness of summer is making me sad. I haven't made ANY real crafty things. With us having vacation, Reid breaking his collarbone, I am just not doing as much. I am not sure if I am just more focused on things my class needs that I can create, or if it is that Reid is only napping 2 hours a day. Or, it could be that I am completely addicted to the HBO series The Killing. I just finished season 1 and it is amazing...If you haven't seen it - but liked Dexter - you will love this!

Anyway, I am linking up with my homegirl Tara for her Monday Made it. 

I wanted a new grade, copy and file box. I just LOVE this! My colors are blue and purple, if you are just joining me. I am in love with this clip art too! If you were a follower of my TPT Store - You have been sent an email to obtain this exact set below for free through your TPT email address. If you are not following- you should, because you never know what I am going to share next! 
I do have several color schemes that you can check out by clicking on each below. 

 You could use these to customize any drawers that you have that are this size! I hope you enjoy them! 

If you would like ALL of the colors (minus the gray) you can find it in a mini bundle here so you can mix and match! 
I also have a HUGE project coming soon with these adorable clips. Just wait until you see!!! Bilingual Scrapbook and I are working hard! :)

I am still organizing - and man - I have a ton of tupperware. I am really excited to put these back into my classroom tomorrow! Yippee. I want to take after pictures of this organization that is happening. It is a transformation in itself! 

I made these pretty little things to spiff up my closet organization. Click on any of the pictures to get to the purple set. I will then list the Blue, Green and Pink set below. 

I am so excited for how pretty these look!
Here is what the dimensions of my 15 QT container are. If they work for you, these may work! 

I found mine at Target and BONUS - they are 15% off this week. Click the picture above or below to go to Target's website to see them!

Again, here are the links for my BlueGreen and Pink sets. 
This is just my bin that students will put their nightly blue folder into. This is the bin that my postal worker will check to ensure all folders are put back into my mailboxes. 
I love how the sign turned out! 

This basket was a buck from the dollar tree! The laminated paper inside is the normal 8.5/11 but the lamination paper is 9x12 and look how much room is on either side!! What what!!!
They had the purple, green and pink. I still need the pretty blue!

Have a great day. I am hoping to do a crafty project or two this week! What have you been up to?
Have a great week all, I am off to bed!

  1. I'm loving all of your different color options for your organization. Very cute! I need to go get some of those Sterlite containers. I like that they snap on. Definitely better than the shoe boxes that have lids that slide off.

    1. I love that they stay on even if they are a bit too full!

  2. So cute! You have inspired me to organize my supply closet. Get some sleep.

    1. My supply closet has been my Achilles heel for years. Over it! This year I will be 90% organized. Ill never get to 100. Lol

  3. Wow, I am impressed! You are super organized! I am going to search for those Sterlite containers. They look like the perfect size!

    1. I hope they help to organize your year! Thanks for stopping!

  11. Love the labels. I also love that you decided to put pretty much everything in a tote. I bought some beautiful clear with hot pink lid totes at Target just a few days ago and I was organizing only my "office like" supplies. Hm... wheels turning. Perhaps my entire classroom will need a tub!!! Thanks for sharing!

    1. At first I felt silly but then I thought, think of all the stuff kids see everywhere. What a mess. This is more visually appealing for everyone.
