Ok so I have been feeling awfully crafty lately due to my new obsession that begins with a "P"...can you guess?? Yes PINTEREST. Pinterest=Crack in my eyes. I thought I was obsessed with blogging well I am, still, but now I have added another obsession to the list. I haven't seen anything that I made pinned on Pinterest or anything..I just pin all day & all night & I got in the car & it just drove straight to Joann Fabrics! Ok so here is what I made yesterday.
I snagged this from Office Depot after they only let me buy the minimum of 10 folders! So I figured they ARE going to give me something for wasting my time :o) So I took a few of these...not sure what I was going to do. Then like I said my car just drove itself to Joann & I bought the 12x12 tie dye scrapbook paper you see next to this ugly box. And I also bought my new BFF....
And the obsessive behavior began. Actually I was already friends with Modge Podge in some other projects I will show you but after this...I can't live without it!
Isn't it pretty?!? It goes with my Peace theme too! I swear I should have been born in the 60's! My house & garage looks like Woodstock threw up in it! So after I was a total brat at Office Depot I took my Office Depot sales ad & went straight to Office Max. Well the manager ended up letting me buy 25 bright yellow folders that will be housed in this bad boy. Yippee!
In case you are wondering...those clipboards were also made in the mad frenzy of crafting too. BTW, those will be given away in my next giveaway.
This is just a natural wood magazine holder that I got on clearance from Michaels. The only thing I had done to it was paint the inside white. I originally was going to paint it with red & white stripes & maybe draw some Seuss characters on it but then I changed my mind & created these.
Isn't it so fun & sassy?!? I love it! The next one is cute but I might add some peace sign graphics to it.
I am planning on making a pretty label for the front of each of these. I might use one for my Sub Binder & the other for my lesson plan binder. Now for some stuff that I previously created for my classroom. BEFORE Pinterest I never took BEFORE pictures but now I will ALWAYS take a pic of how the project started.
This was just a plain wood plaque bought at Joann Fabrics. I got married in April & will go by my married name so of course I had to make myself new signs. I will display this in my classroom.
See why modge podge is my new BFF?!? This also was a plain wood sign that I purchased with a 40% off coupon..of course...I already had the wood letters & circles from previous projects. I will place this outside my classroom.
This one is not school related but I guess I could use it at a decoration for Veteran's Day or President's Day, I made this for our annual Fourth of July party. It started out as a clay pot from the Dollar Tree.
This is a birthday chair I made YEARS ago. The kids LOVE when they get to sit in this chair ALL DAY LONG. This started out as a natural wood chair purchased at Joann's. I am going to make a new one like this next chair.
You might have seen this floating around on Pinterest. I posted it on FB & pinned it myself. This was an old chair from a garage sale & you just rip up an old Seuss book, get tissue paper to match & of course some modge podge. I am going to redo my birthday chair using Happy Birthday to Me by Dr. Seuss. I was going to put a picture of my Star of the Week chair but I can't find one. I am going to redo it anyway.
This is a sign I made for the Dean of Students. This is with our school colors.
This is a sign I made for our principal who is a huge fan of the Chicago Cubs.
Totally not teacher related but it's too cute not to post. This was for a teacher friend of mine that was getting married. Her theme was Gerbera daisies. I also made her a super cute teacher sign but I don't have a pic :o(
I will post more pics as I make things. Feel free to PIN AWAY. I love going on pin boards & seeing my stuff!
Don't forget...giveaway ENDS tomorrow @ midnight!
