Monday Made It


Monday Made It actually makes me get to work and finish some projects that go into the deep dark chaotic cave I refer as my craft room. (My boyfriends calls it my CRAP room and he describes as a Micheals that has gone through a very large earthquake.)
At the Goodwill, I found this awesome TossAcross game. Without hesitation, I put it in my cart. My mind starting thinking of all the possibilities I could do with this. I peeled off all the stickers and used my Circut to cut numbers out of vinyl.  I am going to use it to strengthen my kids addition skills at the beginning of the year and multiplication skills mid year. Total money spent on project was just over $5.
I have been thinking of back to school and I always take pictures of my students the first day of school.  They are always wearing their new shoes, newest outfit and usually a new haircut. I made these first and last day of school signs. The hardest part was trying to decide what frame to put it in. (By the way, look at these cuties!!!)


I made a welcome banner for my door. Download it for FREE for being just fabulous!

  1. Your back to school signs are so cute! I bet your kids love them. Neat idea on the Toss Across game. Getting kids to practice facts in an unique way is always a plus.

    Best of luck this school year!

  2. I forgot to ask...I'm trying to decide if I should purchase my own Circut. What are your thoughts on this? Is it worth it?

    1. Tracy-
      I have an older Circut and it works like a champ. BUT the newer Circut went through this big legal issue and the company/ machine has changed. You are no longer allowed to use any font/clipart on your computer. You are have to buy bundles of clip art and fonts and they are $$$! I would look into the Silhouette.
      Hope this helps!!

    2. I also have an older circut and while I like it, if I were just starting, I would get a Silhouette. I like their print and cut feature!

  7. I love the Goodwill find. That could totally be used for any operation too. Just toss two times and add, subtract, multiply, divide.
