I’m linking up with Tara for Monday Made It 🙂
Another busy and colorful week:
It seems like this summer my creative mode has been all about organization! This has been my goal for a long time but I’ve always had so much going on during the summers (masters program, summer school, committee work) that I didn’t have time to get it done. This year I decided to have a free summer and it’s been great having all this time to relax, create, and get organized!
One of the things I needed was a planner. I’ve gotten the Erin Condren planner for the past two years. I loved it, but I realized that all I ended up using was the monthly calenders. So the weekly spreads went unused. Something else I really needed was more note pages. So I went shopping and found one at Target. It wasn’t very cute though and the boxes didn’t give me much room to write in. I figured there was no other option, but then I ran into The Colorful Apple’s Instagram and one of her images caught my attention. It was a picture of the calender set she created. So I purchased it and I made my planner.
I love my new planner! The cover is from Schoolgirl Style’s I Love School collection. I have a thing for wide horizontal stripes.
I love that I was able to create it to fit my needs! Now I can keep all my notes in one place instead of looking through different notebooks for specific notes. You can find this Calendar Notebook here at The Colorful Apple’s Store.
Made It 2 is something on my to do list from two years ago. I’ve been thinking on how to save my commonly used resources. This summer I finally purchased a few sets of Melonheadz kidlette clip art and it inspired all sorts of stuff. A couple weeks ago I made my subject drawers and it hit me that I could finally create my subject binders with these cute kidlettes too. Here they are:
communication logs, individual student portfolios, lesson plans, CCSS
paperwork etc. I’m so excited about these!
Finally, still on the getting organized theme, I finally created a desktop organizer that everyone is using. I wish I would have taken a picture of my screen beforehand, it was a disaster. There were folders everywhere and I couldn’t find anything when I needed it. So I whipped up an organizer using my Melonheadz kids once again 🙂 Here is what it looks like:
Now head over to 4th Grade Frolics and link up your Made It!
