I'm BaAAAaack!!

It has been so long since I have seen my blog...psh its been so long since I've sat down!!
I have been moving not only into my new apartment but also into my new classroom and it has been CU-RAY-ZEE!!! lol

Amidst the madness I have been able to make some cute things for my classroom that I am super excited about!! I've also developed some new obsessions!! I'm linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.

I am OBSESSED with mod podge...ok ok that one isn't so new but we have definetly built a stronger bond ha!! I've also become OBSESSED with spray paint. You'll see from one of my projects below but I just love love LOVE it!!

Ok so onto my goodies!!

I revamped my three-drawer storage bins. I've had them since I started college (which I jsut realized was 7 years ago...yipes!!) so they were pretty beat up. So I gave them a makeover to match my classroom!! I will post a tutorial later if you are interested let me know!!

I covered these clothepins and I am going to attach thumbtacks to the back to hang my students work.

And last but not least I made this sign to hang outside my classroom. I made it by covering a shoebox lid....I KNOW!!! Soooo cute and soooo easy!! I'll post a tutorial for it as well later.

Ok I need to get back to work....although I'll probably spend some time checking out everyone elses posts.

Good luck getting back to "school mode"!!!


  1. Love the idea of using a shoebox lid! How clever!!! :) Love your bins! I was having a debate on whether tape or mod podge would be what I used on them... tape eventually won for the easy factor... yours turned out great though! :)

    Reaching for the TOP!

  2. Everything you made looks great! I just used mod podge this weekend and love many new things to mod podge for me!

    Success in Second Grade

  3. I love how you made over your old bins from college. I think I'm going to do that to mine, what a cute idea! By the way, what is mod podge? Anyway, I am your newest follower. Come check out my blog at Owl Inspire You
