Monday Made It!

 I'm linking up with Tara for Monday Made It!

I finally had a week where I didn't have anything to do, so I could work on some crafts for my classroom! I still have a couple of more projects I want to complete, and then I'll work on some more practical stuff. (BOOOOOOO)

This is the Hall Pass sign that I made.  I still have to put clothespins on it.  I saw the original post here.  I made cute little signs last year, and they were DISGUSTING by Christmas.  So I liked the idea of just clipping a clothes pin to your shirt.  If they happen to get nasty, which I'm sure will happen, I can just change out the clothespin.  Simple problem solved.

The next thing I made was a sign to go outside my door.  I also made one for my teamie, and a friend of mine who will be in her 1st year teaching this year.  Mine was the guinea pig, so the letters are HUGE.  I decided to use smaller letters on the other two, and it looks much better.  So I will be changing mine.  I'm waiting until I get something to use the big letters on though so they don't go to waste.

One more thing I am working on, but not finished yet, is a bookshelf/bench to go under the huge window in my class.  I first saw the idea here.  I loved it, but had my doubts about using the tall bookcases, because it would cover some of my window.  And I love my window :)  I went to our favorite place in the world, TARGET, and saw the bookcases that have cubes:

Except mine has six cubes so it sits lower to the floor.  Anyways, they were on sale for $13, so I got three, and plan to make a bench to sit on top.  Then I will house my library in baskets, and slip them into the cubes! I'm excited! I will post it as soon as I am finished!

Don't forget to join in my give-away! Original post can be found here.  Next time I'll make a cute button to grab!
