Monday Made It and a FREEBIE!

I'm with Tara...just making it to school must count for something, right?  I know the kids are ready for school to be out, but honestly, I think I'm ready, too, although when I'm out, my FIFTH grader is out, and I mean really out.  Never to return.  Going to middle school.  OUT!  There's a tiny pity party in my mind now.

Really, this weekend, I made some pretty cool stuff.  I found some old shutters out by the street in my neighborhood a few weeks ago and knew they'd make the perfect privacy screen.  I spray painted them black, hinged them together, and got this:

Then I finally got around to sewing extra fabric to store-bought panel drapes for my living room.  Didn't hang them, but did make them!  They bring the blue from the left side of the living room to the very coral right side of the room.  I'll have to post a picture after hanging them - right now, they're lying on the sofa!

And I made about seven or eight new animal activities, printables, and more in individual and an Animal Mega Pack that I talked about here.

Lastly, I just about finished up a fun new digital paper pack, soon to be available on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Here's a sneak preview with a little freebie!

Have a great week, y'all!

  1. Love the papers and I feel your pain about your fifth grader. My oldest is heading into fifth grade and that makes me crazy enough. It's so hard to watch your babies turn into big kids and leave elementary school. Have a good week. :)

  2. Hey Brooke
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. I made a totally different alphabet, and changed the two that I posted about. I'll send you one for free that's not up on TPT yet if you send me your email address. Here's my email address:

    I'm truly not trying to sell you anything. Just appreciated the comment. But now I realize you may not need an alphabet since you teach second grade. Oh well, if you want one, just shoot me an email! (:

  3. Your digital papers look great. Thanks for the freebie. I am loving banners these days!
