Monday Made It: July 15th

A quick trip to visit family this weekend meant that I didn't get a couple projects finished as planned! I did get my "pick me" number bouquet done, though.

I downloaded the numbers from A Cupcake for the Teacher, printed, laminated, and glued them to colored craft sticks that I got at Dollar Tree. Along with being a random student chooser, I may use it to match students up for different activities, for tracking homework . . . my mind is whirling with possibilities.

Last year it seemed as if everyone was making the teacher's tool box and I was no exception! Here is what mine looked like:

It was made to match our "Wild About Learning" theme, but it doesn't fit with this year's "Oh The Places You'll Go" theme so I have updated it. You'll notice I left it the original grey, and I have decided that I was wise (lazy?) to do that since the grey fits in with everything! Here's my new labels:

I had planned to get a little birthday goodie finished up this week, but will have to put it off until next week. I do want to share a little bit of home made it, though. I've been teaching my granddaughter to sew this summer, and she made a pillowcase.

She has been doing very well, and is going to a quilt guild sit and sew with me Tuesday -- she is starting her first quilt! I'm so proud of her. I am working on this:

Four big 9-patch blocks, which have now been cut into 16 smaller blocks and are ready to be assembled. I'm really hoping to have a finished product to show before I go back to school!

What did you make this week?


  1. I made a teacher tool box also! I didn't have one, so this year I jumped on the band wagon. I like your new them- "Oh The Places You'll Go" One year we decorated our doors for Career Week and I used that theme! It's on Pinterest
    I made the college signs and the kids got to create a mini person as whatever career they wanted. I've never thought about using it as a whole classroom theme! I'm looking forward to seeing what other ideas you come up :)

  2. I LOVE my teacher tool box. Your quilt fabric is beautiful!


  3. My teacher toolbox is painted and I just have to add the labels! I'm so excited to have one this year!!!


  4. I love your "Pick Me Boquet." It looks so much cuter than regular choice sticks and because you used numbers you can reuse it year after year. Great Idea!
