Another Monday has arrived which means it's that much closer to the start of school. I'm starting to get concerned at all the curriculum planning I've yet to accomplish. However, I do have some fun Monday Made Its to show for my summer vacation. Thanks Tara for keeping me on track with my crafting. I also need to thank Alison for making me start early this week. This week I made some fun things that I hope to use often.
Do you love clothespins? I use clothespins for all sorts of things so when I scored these black ones from Michael's I was thrilled. My bulletin boards, AR tracker, Transportation display, and walls will be much cuter now. Did you know you can hot glue these bad boys to cement blocks? I made this faux bulletin board with wrapping paper and clothespins. I even hot glue clothespins to cabinets, doors, and furniture.

Cooper was awarded a caught beeing a hearty eater. That little stinker eats everything. If you follow me on Instagram then you've probably seen his little incidents. I plan on drawing for some sort of surprise once a month. I think I could use these for all sorts of things.
Being a good reader
Being a good friend
Being prepared for class
I also have these FREE caught being good behavior beads.
I love using bulletin board borders wrapped around buckets and jars
These miniature canvases were on sale at Michael's last week so I picked them up. I just love this bee clip art by Erin Bradley so I glued them on the canvas. I used a paint pen to write the words.
I've been wanting to create a place to hang student pictures each month. I lucked out when I found the perfect frames from Pier 1. They hold 9 photographs each and I usually have 18 students. In Florida, first grade has a cap at 18 students. I hope it stays this way because I plan to switch the pictures monthly.
My last project was back to school postcards to send out to new students. Our school usually orders postcards but they are generic. I like to type my classroom website and other things that are unique to my classroom.
I found these images from my favorite new place Dollar Photo Club . Their images are amazing and only $1. You can sign up for $10 a month for 10 images and cancel anytime. I love their images so much that I signed up for 99 images. I'll be using them for marketing for my husband's stores and some new tpt products. Their photos are simply stunning. Best part they are only $1.
I ordered them from vistaprint with a great coupon
