Double Trouble (Monday Made It, Freebie, Giveaway)

I'm linking up with my girl Tara for Monday Made It. I can't believe she's back at work already. Summer is coming to an END. Guess I'm next!!!! It's getting crunch time for me as well. I'm putting off curriculum mapping and lesson planning to craft because that's what I do best. How many more days til you go back? I go back Wednesday for PD.

Here are some of my Monday Made Its this week

First I went to my friend's house and we cut vinyl letters for my BEE binders. I'm hoping the vinyl will stay better than just regular stickers that I've used in the past. 

Next up I made these post-it holders for my desk. I got the idea from Alison who originally found the idea on Joann's blog. I think they will come in handy when I need to write a quick note to a student, parent, or coworker.



I always lose track of how many years I've been teaching so I counted my class pictures. Please tell me I'm not the only one. Well....counting class pictures still didn't help because I'm missing a couple of years of pictures. Each year the class picture looks a little different and it bothers me. I started brainstorming ideas because I also have no wall space left. I think I came up with the perfect solution for me. Maybe it will work for you as well?

Too many pictures and different borders each year! YUCK!!!


First, I scanned my class pictures and inserted them into a cute digital frames found here.


Here is my finished product Buzzing through the Years. I think I'm going to like it.






Last but not least- My lucky ducks were getting worn down so I made some insta-sticks with my partner in crime. I like how they are very plain. If you'd like a copy click here.





This week has been a lot of fun. I've teamed up with a 
wonderful friend who lives practically next door. We've been busy this week creating and eating.  Double Trouble is what happens when two girls that love to create, eat, talk, and laugh get together. We hope you'll follow us too! Since there will be two of us creating... you can request custom items here.

  2. I love your buzzing through the years frames. You are really creative and come up with some great ideas. I have enjoyed getting to read your blog this summer. I also wanted to tell you when you asked me if I use Illustrator, I emailed you back and said it was Photoshop Elements. I meant to tell you it was Photoshop Elements 10. I didn't know if you wanted to know the version I use or not. Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see what all you do this year.

  9. Love the bee with all the pictures! I was thinking I need to make some instasticks too, they seem doable and then I realized I don't use numbers lol. I have two classes and can't keep track. Maybe I can make some after I get their names.

  22. Those numbers for your Instasticks are so cute! Thank you for sharing. Could you please tell me what the font is? I'd like to fill in one of those blank circles with a 32 in the same font so that whatever kiddo is 32 in my class this year isn't odd man out!

    Thanks!

  24. I love how you acknowledge your past without taking up a lot of room in your classroom. My old school didn't do class pictures, boo. So the only ones I have are ones I took myself!
