Monday Make-It

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Make-It.  I have so many projects started, but only finished a couple of them.  I tend to be ADD on my projects and have a hard time staying on one project at a time.  One of these days I will show you my craft table, it is out of control, lol.

I made a class set of leis for a bloggy buddy that matches her classroom.  I love the color combination.

The colors are so cheerful to me.  My little ones love their center leis, sometimes they change centers just so they can get a different color, lol.

I have a ton of clip art, just like all of us.  So I made a binder, so I can quickly glance to see what I have in each file.  I get so frusturated when I am lookin for something and can't find it.  Yes, I have bought the same file twice, geez.

First, I made a template in Publisher with text boxes, then added a picture frame inside of those boxes.  So when I added clip art it would stay within that box.  I added the title of the folder at the bottom.  Printed them out and put in plastic sleeves.  I am not finished with the binder, yet.  It will probably take a couple of binders.  Everytime, I buy a new clip art set, then I will make the little cheat sheet - hopefully.

I made a memory with my grand daughter.

I can't believe that my sweet girl will be starting 6th grade this week.  Everyone needs new clothes for school.  I gave her a budget, which I ended up spending double of that - because everything she tried on looked adorable on her.  I started having a few tears, when she walked out of the dressing room wearing this outfit.  We finished the day having lunch at Olive Garden.  I am the luckiest grandma in the world.

Ok, head on over and see what everyone else is doing.  I keep a notebook next to me so I can write down the links and all the great ideas.

I hope you have a SUPER week.

Pin It!


  1. That is a great idea to organize clip art! Now to find the time LOL.. Your grand daughter is adorable I can see how you spent double!!

  2. I saw the clip-art binder last week too. I need to get busy making one of those!

    Your grand daughter is too cute. My kiddos get a shopping trip with their grandma this week too. It is so nice with all we are spending on school supplies, enrollment, etc. to have someone help out with the clothes - I'm sure your son/daughter feels the same way!
