Monday Made It - Summer Week 8

I'm linky up with Tara for her Monday Made It linky party. I had a late start with my summer this year. We had so many snow days that we worked until June 9 (should have been out May 31). Then with me changing districts for next year more of my time was spent moving things from my old room to my garage. So this is the first time for me to link up this summer. I had planned to have more things made, but Made It #2 will explain.

Here's my little teaser picture I posted the other day.

Our school theme is supposed to be "Our Future's So Bright" using neon colors. Here is what I came up with. It is a poster, I have been in my new school, but I don't remember is there are bulletin boards, tack strips or what out in the hallways. I don't even know if this will work. I hope it does, my computer/printer was having an "issue" the other day. I was just going to print it out poster size, but for some reason it kept printing without the background so I printed it and had to cut out the letters to put on poster board. I did a google image search for some of the sunglasses. The bright colored ones with the black lenses I got FREE from Ashley Hughes. Here is a link to it at her TPT store. Check her site out, she has lots of great things. 

Here is an close up of the glasses, they each have a different occupation on them.

My final one has no picture and believe me you wouldn't want to see a picture. I have made myself crazy this last week! I need my social security card to take up to my new district. So I went home and looked where I normally keep it, it wasn't there. So I thought about it for a while, the last time I had the envelope out was when I enrolled my daughter last Fall Break into the neighborhood school. Oh, I forgot to mention, the envelope had my social security card, Delaney's social security card and her birth certificate! I have spent three days tearing our house up trying to find them. I couldn't sleep because I would keep thinking about it, so I would get back up and look some more (until 5AM, good thing it is summer!). I never have found them. The only thing I can figure out is that they ended up in our recycle bin. I was going through a bunch of files and getting rid of stuff. I had a little portable file box that I had filed papers from this year. I'm thinking that maybe I had stuck the envelope in the file box intending to put it up later and when I was recycling, I didn't check the box very carefully. Just writing about this is making me want to go look through every thing again for about the 4th or 5th time. On a positive note, I have gotten rid of a lot of junk while searching for them and I also went through Delaney's stuff (supposed to be for a scrapbook) and sorted it by grades.

So this is my very lame Monday Made It. I have somethings I have been working on and hopefully this week will go a little better and I will get them finished.

Pin It!


  1. I love the name of your blog! It always makes me smile when I am called, "mom." I have not been called grandpa yet, but there is a first for everything!
    I love the bright colors in the sunglasses. Your future students will love it :-)

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I wasn't even grandma age when Charlie called me grandpa. He lived with his grandparents. I took it as a compliment! :)

  2. Looking for important documents is so stressful! Hope you have a great evening!

  3. You are right Alyce, I was on the verge of tears in the wee hours of the morning. ;P I have finally resigned myself to the fact that I need just go ahead and send off for new ones. If I happen to find them, it will be a spare copy! :D

  4. Ugh, I hate losing things! I lost my w-2's when I moved in March and then went crazy trying to find them. I ended up sobbing on the floor just out of frustration. But the good thing is, documents can always be replaced. Good luck!


    1. Adriana, thanks fort sharing, I think it is much easier to replace the documents than it used to be...I was able to download forms online instead of having to go pick them up. :)

  5. Not lame at all, haha! Your bulletin board is going to be very cute.
    I've lost stuff like that, too...usually important receipts. HOW does it happen? We just lost a beautiful 34 year old crockery dish we got for our wedding. It just happened during our kitchen reno. Huh?! I mean how could it possibly disappear? It's big, and noticeable. Hope you find your papers.

  6. Love the sunglasses - what a fun idea. And I share your frustration about missing papers - argh how many hours have I spent looking for something I put in a super special place!! Hope you either find them right away, or replacing them is easy!
