My FIRST Made it Monday

Hi all-

I decided to join in on the making things fun and completed my first "Made It Monday".  It's so funny that Tara at 4th Grade Frolics created this connection.  Why you ask, well just the other day I was discussing, describing, complaining about all the things I wanted to create from Pinterest but I felt so lost in my picture boards that I felt Pinterest needed a Made-it button, a digital checklist if you will!  Well, Tara came to the rescue.

These week I have my completed Harry Potter Themed Clipboards done and ready to bring some MAGIC to my classroom.

The side you write on in my SchoolGirlStyle inspired colors,
decoupaged, and sprayed with glitter spray (to add the magic)

Pinterest HP MiniPosters

I made one for each book in the series

I couldn't resist these sayings!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this quote from JK Rowling!

CLOSE-UP: It is filled with quoted from the novel.  LOVE IT!

I absolutely LOVE my clipboards and really can't wait to bring them into my classroom to help add to the fun of Harry Potter.

Although not teacher related, I am taking a cake class, and this was my first cake.

Hey, I made it, and it's Monday!
It is a chocolate cake with a Peanut Butter filling that my Peanut Allergy ridden cousin made fro me while I was off teaching summer school.  Gotta love family!

Happy Monday!

  5. Hi guys and gals! Thanks so much for the clipboard LOVE. I am quite proud of them myself. Glad to see so many Potter fans out there. I am even redoing my HP classroom theme this summer and can't wait to share how I kicked-it-up-a-notch! I found all the mini posters on pinterest. To make life easy, you can search my account on pinterest ( The Reading Buddies).

    Tara, thanks for hosting as I am already working on my next Made it Monday post. :0) you inspired me to get some studs done.

    Jen, get some clipboards and decoupage away. I also plan on taking some of these to Staples and seeing if they can make some of them into posters to hang around my room. I will let you know how it goes!

    Patti, I just checked out your cake on your blog...OMG!
