Monday Made It - August 1st

Hey everyone! I was kind of hoping that baby boy would make his appearance already so that he could be Made It #1, but he's still hanging out. I'm exactly 39 weeks today. One week til my due date!! Big sister Zoe is getting pretty excited to meet him and so are we!!

Well while I am waiting for little mister to get out of me, I'm linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her weekly Monday Made It!

Even though I am currently on mat leave, I never stop thinking about school or buying cute things for school. Well the last few times I was at Michael's I saw this adorable tip-out drawer unit in pink and teal. I thought it would make a perfect little teacher tool box. The first few times I resisted buying it. By the third trip though, I had to have it. I bought it with a 50% off coupon and made these cute chalkboard labels to go on them. I had some interest on Facebook and Instagram, so I thought I would share the labels with you. You can find editable labels for free {here}. Make sure when you print them, you un-click "Scale to Fit Paper" so they are exactly the right size for the toolbox! :) 

I always loved having my polka-dotted "Where Are We?" posters hanging outside our classroom door so that parents, specialists, or anyone else could find us in the school! The only thing that bugged me was it didn't match my classroom decor anymore, so I made a new version in my Chalkboard & Brights theme! I can't wait to hang these up!!! (Next year.... when I'm done mat leave.... lol)

My next two made-its are not school related. I've been busy getting the nursery already for baby boy. The first project was recovering the cushions on my glider. I was never a big fan of the light pink, but it worked fine in Zoe's room. When I brought it into the baby's grey nursery, I just couldn't leave it pink!! I had some grey fabric that I bought for a DIY headboard that never got made, so I used it to recover the glider cushions. I love how it turned out!!

I had ordered fabric to make some curtains for our new house way back in November, but I finally just got around to sewing some of them. I found this awesome tutorial from Two Twenty One on how to make tabbed black out curtains. I made some pink polka-dotted curtains for Zoe's room to match her Minnie Mouse bedding.

Then I made some navy chevron curtains for baby boy's room. I am loving how his nursery turned out. My husband is a big Winnipeg Jets fan, so we did a hockey/Jets themed nursery. It's pretty cute if I do say so myself!

Well that's it for me! I've got a few TpT products on the go that I am hoping to get up by the end of the summer, but we will see how that goes! I'm sure life once baby gets here will be a little on the crazy side! ;)

Oh, but don't forget that there is a big TpT sale going on right now! Today and tomorrow everything in my store is 20% off and you get an extra 10% off when you use the promo code: BestYear. Happy Shopping!


  1. I've walked by those supply bins several times in Michael's but I haven't purchased it, your labels make be want to rethink that decision, thanks for sharing!

  2. Congrats on your upcoming bundle of joy! And I need to drop by Michaels to see if I can find some of those cute drawers so I can get your labels!
