Monday Made It!

It's been a whole week since I've blogged - yikes!  Stop by tomorrow to see what I've been up to.  In the meantime, we are going to celebrate another Monday Made-It with Tara!

My Monday Made-It isn't all that fancy this week.  I was going to head to the craft store, but the real-feel temperature outside is 100 degrees right now.  I decided to stay put in my nice, cool air conditioning.  I created some labels for the bins that I blogged about last week {see them here}. 

I think they came out really cute!  But...I'm not going to use them.  Those things were a royal pain to cut out!  I may lean more towards a circle or square shaped label, with a little less of a scalloped border. I'll share once I come up with those!

Last year I used bins to organize my weekly plans {see them here}, but they didn't work out so well.  I found that the papers always tipped over and curled up.  Drove.Me.Crazy.  This year, I'm thinking of using plastic drawers, like these:

I already own some (okay, a lot) of sets of these drawers but they are at school.  I created some labels, but I have no idea if they are going to fit!  Hopefully I can get into my classroom at the end of the week and measure my drawers.  I do like the way they came out though!  And they match my green-pink-blue theme!

Happy Monday!


  1. I am right there with you! I am staying inside with the central air throughout the heat wave!

    Hopefully you can get into you classroom this week! Those labels turned out adorable! I hope they fit!

  2. I love the labels! Even though I home school my two kids I can defiantly use some of these. Do you sell a downloadable version? Thanks!

  3. Cute! I have a file folder for my daily week, but using those drawers sound like a better idea :)

  4. I have many of those drawers as well! I am waiting to get started on mine, but may do so now that I have seen yours.

  5. I have the same problem with the bins! I am switching to drawers this year. You have inspired me to make some labels!

  6. Don't think my comment posted. Grrrr. 13 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches vertical

  7. Loving your labels! I am planning on using those drawers to organize centers - one drawer for each group.

  9. It's warm in Kentucky, too! Love your beautiful frames, but I hate I'm with you. :) Also, I love how artsy you got with the camera today!

  10. I have been seeing more and more teachers make the switch to these three-door deals! Maybe I need to try it out too :) thanks for sharing!
