Monday Made It

Happy Monday!

We only have one more Monday left before it's April Vacation! (and I'll be apartment hunting! :)

Time for Tara's Monday Made It

School Made Its:

My anchor charts needed some sprucing up- and a way to stay up easier and a way for me to quickly add to it. Enter....Glitter Clips!
So pretty!

Close up's actually purple and pink

In use!

 First, I hot glued a tack to the back of the clothespin. Then, I used my finger to smear white glue all over the clothespin. After that, I dragged it through the glitter pile I had on a piece of paper. A few days after they were complete dry, I sprayed it with a finishing spray so glitter wouldn't come off.

I've loved using them so's much easier to add anchor charts now!

I also made Center cards for the whiteboard, so I don't have to continue to write the center names on the board. Now, I just have to write the number of the task card!

 The icons on the center cards match the icons that are on the task cards (as does the font :)

Home Made It:

 I also have something that I've been working on for about a month and a half. You've seen the baby blankets that I've made for some co-workers...well, I decided it was time for me to make one that was for me!

It's still a work in progress, and it's about halfway done. It's so nice, cozy and warm that I love working on it.

 I hope you enjoyed my Monday Made Its!

Smiles and Sunshine,


  1. LOVE the blanket! You are talented, girl :) I also have glitter clothes pins and I love them! You were right! It is opening day for the Cleveland Indians :) Unfortunately you weren't first:( My kids will be so hyped up about it tomorrow, too! (I'm sure we won't stay winning for long either, so I understand your point!! Thanks for following and leaving some love :) I absolutely love your blog! So excited to read up:)


  2. Loving the sparkly clips! Such a simple idea but it would be way more efficient (and way cuter) than the Scotch tape balls that I am forever making and ripping off of the bulletin boards! Thanks for the idea!
