Yay for Monday Made It!!!!

I am linking up to Tara's Made it Monday!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you tell I couldn't wait for Monday to come??? Well of course, this WON'T happen when school starts! I have been busy planning lots of crafty things for my new updated classroom, plus today I got an email saying I could go into my room since it is cleaned AND moved!!! Yay!  My teacher friends will think I am crazy, but I love my job and can't wait to redecorate!  Anyway, here is what I have been up to! (Sorry the pictures aren't that great)

After being inspired by Tara's "Believe" sign, I had to make my own with my name on it to hang on my classroom door!  I bought an 8 x 10 piece of canvas, used my Cricut to cut circles, and then ran the sticky paper (again I LOVE it) through the Cricut and just peeled off the letters for my name.  Of course, then I used Mod Podge and then attached ribbon.  The finished product:

Love it!!!!!

My other project was the popular pinned "READ" letters decorated.  Since I am only going to be teaching reading this year, I thought they would look cute in my room.  I bought the letters from Michael's and used scrapbook paper to match my new colors.  I then used Mod Podge too.   I think I still need to add something to them since they are a little plain, so I'll be on the lookout for something.  The finished product:


  1. I love the colors you used. They turned out fabulous!

  6. I like your sign and letters! I'm so thankful that I have a Cricut- I can't believe I used to trace letters and cut them out by hand!! I also made the letters for READ even though I don't know where I'm going to put them!! Right now they are on my living room bookcase!
