Chalk It to Me Giveaway, Freebie and Monday Made Its

Oh my word! It's 4:30 on a Sunday night/ Monday morning. I'm always procrastinating. I'm so last minute with my Monday Made Its or could it be that I get so excited that I can't even sleep? I usually crash around Monday afternoon after checking out all of the other fabulous crafts on Tara's linky. It's like Christmas morning every Monday. YAY! Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets super EXCITED about Mondays in the summer.

This week I went a little overboard with chalk. Funny thing is 7 years ago I HATED chalk. I didn't want to see a chalkboard anywhere in my classroom. Now it's super cute as long as I have my smartboard to use and the chalkboard as accent/decorations. 


I think my obsession started with my new Erin Condren teacher planner. It's so cute. I've already marked all the important dates/school events.



I also made so many new labels, alphabet sets, and motivational sayings for the classroom. I can't wait to put them up.

#1  Monday Made It- Chalkboard Decorations








#2   Toolbox chalkboard labels




#3   is not really made by me but made by a talented artist named Dawn.
It's also a giveaway as I'm celebrating 1,000 followers (should hit 1,000 any day) by giving away my #3 Monday Made It
How cute would this be for first day photos? I can't wait to use this darling door hanger for many things. If you would like to be entered into the giveaway please follow 
LaDeeDah art on fb and tell them that Miss Nelson sent you! 

After you leave a comment on their FB page, leave me a comment with your email saying you visited La Dee Dah art. I will be giving away one chalkboard apple to one lucky fan on June 30th!




THIS IS DAWN! I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER ART AT THE ROSEMARY MARKET.
Hey there!! I am the wife to one completely crazy, fun-loving man and mom to two awesome little boys. I love Jesus, my family and my friends and love making new friends. One of my passions is painting and creating cool spaces especially for children. 


Off to check out the other Monday Made Its

  15. I love all the fun chalkboard accents printed on paper. I hate writing on chalkboards in the classroom. Hate the mess and the awful scratching sound.

    All your Monday Made It projects turned out great!

    I visited Dawn's FB and now I wish I hadn't! I want everything she ever created! She is so unbelievably talented! Love that apple and polka dotted owl!

  17. Ok, I love all of it!

    The apple is too stinkin' cute, and there a million things you could use it for (pictures, apple unit, short notes, etc).

    The chalkbaord stuff is adorable (and, I'm with you, I'd rather see a chalkbard in the form of graphics as opposed to the real [messy] deal).

    I visited (and liked) Dawn's FB page and looked at her photos. Eek! That picnic table and handbag have my name written all over them!! Thanks for telling us about her (I even sent her info to my bestie who lives in GA).
