Monday Made It

So...My Monday Made It this week is more like "Monday I have plans in the near future to make it." lol! Does the week somehow get away from you, too?! We were all so buy with getting new grass and the Fourth that I hardly had time to work on anything crafty!
The one thing I DID finish that I am super excited about are my Pinterest boards. It's like a summer ritual to go through them and re-organize, add some boards, delete some's a full day process, right??  After reading Kristen's post {Ladybug Teacher's Files} I knew that I had to do the same thing to my Pinterest boards. Y'all...I'm in love! I keep showing my husband and he's not nearly thrilled as he should be about the whole thing, but it looks SO much better! And I love how it matches my blog!

My next almost-made it is my word wall! I swore I wasn't going to change my word wall this year. At the end when I was throwing everything else into my closet, I delicately pulled the staples out of my words and made sure not to rip any of the paper. I'm changing my bulletin boards to plain black background and using bright borders to word wall right now is sky blue...which I love, and my numbers are backed in the same color. I think they'll probably stay...but I saw this pin and couldn't get over the idea of using bright paper to make my word wall.'s a work in progress. I need to go up to school to see if I need to trim the paper down any {12x12 might be a bit too big once I get it all together...I'm thinking of trimming them to 10x10} I promise I will post pictures when I'm done!

I have a few more in-progress projects but I will wait until they're all complete to post! :) What things have you been working on this summer?! Head back over to Tara's blog to see what everyone else has been crafting!


  1. Ohh... I super duper love that word wall! I read a blog post last week about having a neat and user-friendly word wall, and I think this one is just perfect! This might be my next project. Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. love the colors you chose for the word wall!

  4. SO cute! Love it! I'll have to file that idea away. I loop so I keep my word wall up from Kindergarten to first grade. Thank goodness that I don't have a lot of things to change since being pregnant is going to make it hard to climb up on things. Love the bright colors!

  5. So presh! I am loving the Pinterest Board Covers! I too am changing my word wall to a black background! Mine is still in progress but you can check it over at my blog! Yours looks great so far!

  6. Your word wall is going to look amazing! I love the bright colors. Kristen's tutorial is on my to-do list this week for sure! Your Pinterest boards look great!!!


  7. I love how this looks! So colorful and it should really *pop* the words. Don't cut your 12 x 12 sheets, just slip them under for letters that won't have as many words. Sort of like how your photo looks with the A page being larger than the B. Then you can custom size the whole wall. Can't wait to start looking through your pinterest boards that are now so well organized!

  8. All of the bulletin board paper in my class is black, and I love how everything pops on it! I can't wait to see how your word wall turns out.

  12. You are my idol!!!!! I also need something different to make it easier for the children to find the words easier. The color blocking will really help. I now await your final product and helpful hints. Thanks for doing all the hard work. Again you are my IDOL!!!!
