Monday Made It--July 15th

I would have posted sooner, but WE HAD A BAT IN OUR HOUSE TONIGHT!!!!! Ewwwwww!!!!! It's gone now, but I still have the heebie jeebies, and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to fall asleep tonight...

I took some time off this weekend to go on a mini-vacation with the fam to the Wisconsin Dells. "The Dells," as we locals call it, is a popular touristy place about 2 hours from our house. My grandpa has a cottage on a lake about 10 miles out, so we went there for the weekend before the hubs' surgery tomorrow.

Even though I didn't have as much time this week to be creative, here are some of the project I've been working on, thanks to the motivation from Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics

A Bloglovin' Button!
The one from the Bloglovin' site was so ugly and didn't match my blog at all. So I made a new matchy-matchy one, and surprise, surprise! I actually figured out the code to install it myself. Excuse me while I pat myself on the back :)

School Calendar!
I'm part of my school's scheduling committee, and for the last two years, I've been in charge of making a master calendar with all of the PE, guidance, Spanish, and library schedules, as well as testing dates and special events. Well I finished it, and here are a few pages:
I was itching to add some cute clip art to it or maybe some fun background paper, but I refrained :)

Teacher Toolbox!
I will admit... when I first saw all the Teacher Toolboxes out there, I didn't get it. But the more I saw them, the more I thought about my own organizational system. Here was my desk area last year:
You probably can't tell, but there are five different spots in this tiny space where I store my teacher supplies. FIVE!!! This upcoming year, I'm hoping to get rid of this computer desk altogether and use a smaller table (yet to be found and/or built...). That means I really need a better organizational system. So I decided to jump on the Teacher Toolbox bandwagon! Here's mine!
Yep. I love it. And my new obsession is spray glue. Why didn't I know about this until yesterday??? I feel like I've been living a sheltered life...
I found this in the DIY section, next to the super glue, at Walmart.
What did you make this week?


  1. I woke up one night to a bat swooping at my head. I got it to fly out of my bedroom and promptly locked myself in my bedroom until animal control- which wasn't for another five hours. I was so scared I wouldn't even leave my room to pee. Then when animal control came, they couldn't find it!! Only for it come out swooping again 10 mins later. On their second visit, they caught the bat. The thought of it gives me chills. Try to rest peacefully.

  2. spray glue? I must find this and probably sooner rather than later as it seems like it would be perfect to assemble my teacher toolbox I've been putting off making! Well I finally spray painted the outside today so that was a start :)

  3. Gah, a bat, I would have been so freaked out! Your toolbox looks great! I have to spray paint mine, but the humidity is killer here, so I think I shall wait awhile!
