Monday Made It

I've had a pretty busy summer creating so I thought I would show you a few highlights in this edition on Monday Made It!

We are blessed with walls at school that are just a HUGE bulletin board. No cinder blocks everything can be stapled into the wall. I have a few quotes that I have hung up for years but I jazzed them up a bit! I bought this wooden frames from Michales Craft store and just painted them the colors I needed and placed my min posters in them! As you can see I had a little help. I can't wait to hang these on the walls!

My second project I want to share is these adorable invitations I made from my son's Birthday. I almost always order through Shutterfly and end up spending WAY too much and it never dawned on me that I could just make it! I love the way they came out AND I saved myself a ton of money by making a JPEG and printing them at Walmart!

 Yup that is a crayon with my blog name on it! How cool is that. We took a small road trip to the Crayola Experience and had a blast! There is so much for the kids to do, and the gift shop is a teacher's dream come true! If you get the chance I would totally make the trip. They have a few locations just click on the image below to see their page!
Here are a few shots of my own loves having fun!

Summer allows me to get in the kitchen more and I discovered two fantastic recipes! The first one was for this pleo granola. It made the whole house smell wonderful while it was in the oven! You can find the recipe HERE
 The second recipe the whole family enjoyed was Spinach Mac and Cheese! Everyone loves Mac and Cheese but throwing spinach in just makes you feel a bit better while pigging out!
Well that's it for me! Please stop by Fourth Grade Frolics page to see what other fabulous bloggers have been making!


  1. I am absolutely 100% jealous of the fact that you can just staple stuff on the wall! Love how your frames and crayon turned out!

  2. Love how all your projects turned out! Tell me more about your son's bday invitations. How did you print them? As a photo?

    1. Hi there! I created the invitations on power point then I saved it as a JPEG. Once it was a JPEG I was able to upload it to as an image and order them as a 5x7 photo. Hope this helps!
