Another Monday Made It

I'm glad to be joining up for 4th Grade Frolic's Monday Made It again this week!

Last week I was off in the beautiful Destin area, and while I did work on some designs for my classroom (I know, shame on me for working on vacation), I didn't do any projects.

This was my view:

It was nice.  Now I'm back in the dang Texas heat.
Wait, where was I?  Oh yeah.

Well, today I did a simple project.  I'm not underestimating myself here.  It was the simplest of simple projects.  Which works well for me.  I am a woman of big ideas but small capabilities.  Crafty-wise.

I found these little goodies guessed it, the Target Dollar Spot.  Man, I loves me some of that mess.

My classroom for the past 5 years has been a beach theme.  I haven't decided if I'll be keeping the beachy aspect or not, but I'm going to narrow down my plethora of bright colors (I LOVE bright colors) to just teal, lime, and black.  So I got me some goodies last week.  (Keep in mind my 2 favorite colors are teal and lime green, so I already had a ton of them in my room.)

Anyway, all I did was hot glue some coordinating ribbon around each of these little buckets.  They're going to be my table buckets, so I made 6 of them.  

They are FAR from perfect, but I'm not too anal retentive, and I plan to punch out some circles, etc. with my Cricut and mount the table numbers on the sides.  Hopefully that'll cover where the two ends of ribbon meet, at least.  Did I mention I got the ribbon for 60% off at Michael's??  YES MA'AM, that's what I'm talking about!

That's really all I've got unless you wanna see the program I created for my cabaret performance tomorrow night at the Elks Lodge Ladies' Fun Night.  (The things I do for my mother, people.)

And just because he is SO darn cute, and I can't resist: 

my little man helping me in the kitchen today.  
And by "helping," I mean taking everything out of the lower cabinets.  

Be sure to stop by 4th Grade Frolics' blog to link up and/or to find some new project ideas (just we all need, right?)!

Nighty night.


  1. Those rock - turquoise & lime are my fav. colors too! I was so tempted by those today and immediately thought table buckets but I talked myself out of them because I tend to be too compulsive when it comes to cute containers!

  2. Those colours look brilliant together!!! Neat idea to use ribbon around the tubs - just too good...
