Getting Creative and more Giveaways

The past few days I have been in the creating mood. I know its not Monday Made it, but I am moving next week, so I thought I would post earlier and hope that I get a chance to make more on Monday.

Making Banners

This first thing I created was a Homework banner to make my decor.  It was a lot easier than I too easy.  But it turned out super cute!  I am feeling like a rockstar!!!

What you can't see (because it wasn't up when I took the picture) are the labels for the days and subjects.  Believe me when i tell you it looks fabulous.  I even added an area to hang no name papers.

Whatchya Reading?

I then decided to give a shot at using digital paper.  Turns out, it is also super easy!  Geesh, what was I so worried about?  I made this:

Ok so the idea came from, well, hmm... I have searched through all my blogs I read and cannot remember or find it.  Gosh I feel bad.  If you are the person who has this idea in your room, let me know so I can give you credit.  Heather at Room 4 Imagination when she referenced Pernille Ripp (sorry I have no working linking).  Its an awesome idea, by the way!!!!  The idea is to put the covers of the books I read around this sign. I am excited because it looks so stinking cute!!!

Custom Clothes Pins

Next I tried my hand at custom clothes pins that you see everywhere on Pinterest.  Check them out!!!!
I tried to get them all in one shot...manages to get my toes.  Whoops!

I am so in love with the flip flops!!!!

Some were still drying.

I made 100 in all.  For some I used washi tape.  for the rest I used scrap book paper and Mod Podge.  I really had fun with this.  I am going to use some for the no name papers wall, and some on my other bulletin boards.  I plan to attach tacks to the back to but them in the cork on my walls.  THIS will be my monday made it.  You will see...It will be great!

Whew!  Well, now for the....

  1. Amy, I can't wait to see the wall! Look at all of those super cute clothespins. I still haven't made any yet. I get too caught up in reading everyone's blogs. I CAN'T STOP! Lol!
    Thanks for the shout-out on the Rockin' Behavior Beads. I can't wait to see who will win the Amazon Gift Card. I'm going out of town in a few hours, so Miss Nelson will announce it during Saturday Snapshots!

  2. I'm thinking your reading poster may have been inspired by my Monday Made it post referencing Pernille Ripp's door.

  3. Love the book sign you made! I'm totally stealing this and recreating it! We had one at my old school but alas, it was in the school colors so it got put in a box somewhere. ALL the teachers in the whole school had it posted outside of their door and it did not have to just be "kid" books. Loved it!
